AMERICA'S PRISONS-A ROAD TO NOWHERE

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/opedspace/americas-prisons-a-road-t_b_6204554.html

Excerpt......PLEASE READ FULL ARTICLE, "very" informative, what inmates face upon "release"

"By Ben Notterman
Video of Henry McCollum's release shows the exonerated death row inmate making his way through a crowd of excited onlookers and into his family's car, where he could not figure out how to fasten his seatbelt. In his defense, many states did not begin mandating the use of seatbelts until well into the 1990s, by which time McCollum had already spent a decade in prison. Like most of the 650,000 inmates released from prison each year, McCollum brings no vocational skills or educational background into a world that must appear to him a strange and distant future, thrust on an unsuspecting present. From this perspective, the severity of punishment is never greater than at the time of release."
~~~~~~
Some children as young as 8 are in detention centers until their 21st birthday, some are then sent on to an adult prison to finish out their sentence handed down by the judge in their case. WITHOUT any vocational  or educational skills upon release, they will be just as dependent upon release, as they were when they were first detained.  Indeed this leads to a road to nowhere.

http://america.aljazeera.com/articles/2015/3/9/un-expert-slams-us-as-only-nation-to-sentence-kids-to-life-without-parole.html

“To deny the possibility of release is to deny the human capacity to change and is utterly incompatible with the basic principles of juvenile justice.”

JUVENILES CHANGE-THEY DESERVE BOLDER REFORMS

http://jjie.org/op-ed-juveniles-change-they-deserve-bolder-reforms/#

A very "informative" article, urge all readers to please read FULL article, share with others  in your world.

Children "do" deserve a "chance", to become "productive" members of society, NOT throw away to die in prison, for "mistakes" made as a child. Many in prison today, did NOT murder, rape or rob anyone, or cause "harm" to anyone, unfortunately were with the "wrong" people, at the "wrong" time and place. Children are easily influenced by others, often leading them down the "wrong" path. Many seeking love and attention, coming from a very dyfunctional home setting. Far too many in prison have been abandoned by officials, family and friends, feeling doomed with NO hope. These actions must be dealth with, and treat children as they really ARE, a child, NOT an "adult", IMO

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."

This case could have been any child, could have been YOUR child,  get educated and involved, teach your child their miranda/legal rights.
