JUDGES IMMUNE/ THIS IS SOOO WRONG, NO JUSTICE

PLEASE READ FULL ARTICLE...............no justice!!!

http://www.standardspeaker.com/news/lawsuit-ciavarella-based-sentence-on-birds-1.514326

"Ciavarella is immune, the federal judge said, from liability for any decisions he made while on the bench.
U.S. Supreme Court rulings dating to 1871 have established judges cannot be sued for their actions from the bench, even if they act in bad faith, U.S. District Judge A. Richard Caputo, said"

The above literally allows judges to do whatever they want to do, right or wrong, and will go unpunished for deliberately doing a "wrong"....That "ruling" certainly needs to be "changed"....NO JUSTICE!!! THIS IS SOOO WRONG!!!!

Zero Tolerance: Sensible Change in Policy

The zero tolerance policy is long overdue for an amendment, many cases that went forward to involved law enforcement was NOT necessary at all, hopefully this change in policy will benefit all the children, as well as adults. Bear in mind, children are still growing and learning, there is so much exposure to their young minds, we, as adults have a duty to "guidance" and "discipline" them, but not contribute to them having a "record", for mistakes made as a "child". Of course I well understand/realize some issues warrant law enforcement involvment, but each case should be investigated thoroughly and proper steps taken, in helping all concerned.

Some say 13-year-olds should remain in juvenile system

Punishment is warranted, but as the children they ARE....... with discipline, to include rehabilitative efforts to help them become productive members of society, far too many children are being locked away and throwing away the "key". So many "children" NEVER had a "chance", never "offered" a "chance to "change."

OFFICIALS SAY 14 YR OLD GIRL UNFIT TO BE TRIED AS JUVENILE

"The request for a finding that a child is unfit for Juvenile Court is generally made by prosecutors seeking to try a child as an adult".

http://www.nctimes.com/news/local/sdcounty/article_62783c6f-f8a4-550a-a1eb-ae47f75fd8aa.html


It disgusts me to read they say, "this child is UNFIT"...HOW DO "THEY" KNOW????
Tho in this case, this "child" should be punished, BUT as a child, the above article actually states they have given up on her, she is beyond rehabilitation or redemption. FAR too many of our nation's youth are just thrown away, with NO help, NO guidance, NO counseling, NO rehabilitative efforts, offered NO chances to even attempt to turn their lives around, a "chance" to become a "productive" member of society. Prosecutors are experts in the field of anatomy, psychology, physiology of the human brain and body??? Crime is NOT condoned here, but she is 14 yrs of age, clearly NOT an adult. Justice must be "tempered" with compassion and mercy. Until that happens, more and more "children" will be "destroyed" by the present day laws, prosecutors have been allowed entirely TOO much "power" in governing these cases. Juvenile law reform is "imperative", to help save our nation's youth!!!

Study on Trying and Sentencing Children as Adults




This article brings out/repeats what we juvenile advocates have been saying for years, there have been many "studies" on this subject, but when will the officials listen and take action? Juvenile LAW REFORM is imperative to help save our nation's "youth" from doom and "deaths."
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The report, 'From Time Out to Hard Time: Young Children in the Adult Criminal Justice System,' provides a comprehensive look at how the nation treats pre-adolescent children (primarily those age 12 and under) who commit serious crimes.

Children should be handled in the juvenile justice system, where they can obtain the rehabilitative services and programs necessary to help them become productive adults. Lawmakers must reconsider and reverse these punitive laws.

JUSTICE UNDONE? NO INCENTIVE FOR "TRYING"

Crime is NOT to be condoned and punishment warranted if 100% guilty, but NOT to consider any fact of this young man's efforts of turning his life around was a gross INjustice. Prison will in fact strip him of all he ever accomplished so far, and learn of things no one should ever be exposed to. So what kind of man will he be, when he is finally released. There is cause here to be bitter and angry, for even tho he "tried"/made an effort to amend his ways, he still got kicked in the teeth(so to speak.)

Judge Downs wasn't moved. Although he did rule that Peterson's "local support network" and acceptance of responsibility for his crime were mitigating factors, he still sent the young man to prison for 44 months
