Most people point to two factors: (1) the rise of single parent families, and (2) a breakdown in the public education system. Another factor is drug traffic. But all crime tends to be influence by socio-economic factors. Usually young people in impoverished neighborhoods, without a strong parental figure, are more likely to become involved in criminal activity.

Young people do not understand real meaning of life. Their God is Consumption; their values are resumed to the possession of clothes, i-phones, and electronic gadgets. In such environment drug consumption violence and other kind of crime increase. Crime suppression is difficult and police force has a very hard job sometimes its action boosts crime.
