ULTIMATE "INJUSTICE" OF A 15 YR OLD-FINALLY EXONERATED

http://www.sun-sentinel.com/news/crime/fl-anthony-caravella-dna-7-million-20150122-story.html

EXCERPT...Please read and share FULL article

"Two former Miramar police officers who framed a mentally challenged 15-year-old boy for the rape and murder of a woman must pay him $7 million for the nearly 26 years he spent in prison, a federal appeals court ruled Thursday."

"The jurors found that both men "while acting under color of state law as a member of the City of Miramar Police Department" acted with malice or reckless indifference to Caravella, who had an IQ of 67. The two officers violated his constitutional rights against malicious prosecution, coerced him into confessing and withheld evidence that could have cleared him soon after his arrest in 1983, jurors found."

Chief Judge Teske-Emotional Baggage Drags Down Many Poor Children

http://jjie.org/op-ed-emotional-baggage-drags-down-many-poor-children/

An excellent, most informative article

Excerpt......PLEASE READ AND SHARE "FULL" ARTICLE

"A child can’t be responsive to a teacher’s instruction with a head full of anxiety, stress, fear and pain. In their desire to survive, they fight, freeze or take flight — the “dumbed-down” description of trauma symptoms.
Yet many still label them “bad seeds” and respond with punishments. They treat the symptom, but never the cause........."

My personal thanks to Judge Teske and the Juvenile Justice Exchange for this very important article
