Walters, in the 1996 book Body Count: Moral Poverty—and how to Win America’s War Against Crime and Drugs, superpredator as a term is partially rooted in the Central Park jogger case. There was, according the Dilulio, “a new generation of street criminals is upon us—the youngest, biggest and baddest generation any society has ever known.”
