No, I'd have to say, all of these have gone up. It's EVERY SINGLE DAY I'm hearing something, somewhere, about some 17 year old in jail with a track record a mile long for theft and shoplifting.

The bottom line is, this world is NOT the same as it was 30-40 years ago. Period. A lot of kids have a lack of respect for adults these days, and it's becoming more and more of a problem.
Studies don't agree with you, and of course you see that stuff on the news. Kids doing normal things and being good is not news worthy. They only show the bad stuff. I watch the news daily too and rarely see anything about crimes, and when there are crimes it's normally well above 30 year olds. Some cities are more prone to crime then others, and if you're seeing something every day I'd say it's probably more your area than anything else (and there has always been worse parts of a town or bad cities where crime has always been higher than average).
