The most striking thing about media reporting of young people with respect to crime and criminal justice is their overwhelming representation as offenders rather than victims. Research consistently finds well over half of young people surveyed to have suffered some form of criminal victimisation within the past 12 months (Muncie, 2004). Yet their experiences as victims of all but the most serious offences would appear to be of little interest to journalists.
