BOYS 15 & 12 TO BE TRIED AS "ADULTS"?????

Ind. boys to be tried as adults in stepdad slaying,ages 15 and 12.....Defense attorneys argued the boys would be better served in the juvenile system, but Huffer, who has 13 years of experience as a juvenile court judge, said "it was not equipped to handle such cases."...........NOT EQUIPPED??? I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW WHY???? Isn't that... what juvenile system is for???........I realize this is a horrible tragedy, but they are NOT adults!!!.......So if convicted, these "children" will get the help and rehab they surely need in the adult system???? You can bet there will not be anything at all, throw them away and forget........sound familiar America?????

CRITICAL PSYCHOLOGY/DR. DAN EDMUNDS

One of many of Dr. Edmunds phenomenal website writings, a MUST READ, very interesting and most informative. Many of his writings are found on facebook as well.

A BLIND EYE TO CHILDREN'S SUFFERING/A MUST READ

AN ABSOLUTE MUST READ, abuse is happening all across this nation to "innocent" children.
Severe abuse, rapes, sexual assaults, and even deaths occur to children who have been incarcerated, abuse is NOT happening just on the "outside", but behind those cells walls as well.~~

I often question "what are the qualification credentials", required to become an employee, in areas of "children"??

When it comes to local government, we too often shrug over things that ought to enrage us......

Florida...mandatory review..important for us all....

Florida's rigid laws...prison time for first offense....reform is desperately needed and can save the state many dollars....

NEGATIVITY ABOUNDS

So unfortunately, the negativity is a facet of this life, we have the freedom to ignore it, but it is a root of evil that seems to thrive among society’s population, “they” seems to believe everything is true, they read in the papers, which is so far from the actual truth of many subjects published. We make our own paths for our serenity and peace, those who do not agree and shout out their opinions, have that right, but to intrude into our world, with such negavitity is a total waste of time and certainly non-productive. Society has been so brain washed away from truth and justice, acting liken to that of robots, or monkey see, monkey do.

We must continue to follow our own hearts and souls, as to what is truth, what is justice, in a land so full of evil and INjustice. Paying it forward and RAOK is so simple and is always FREE. Compassion and mercy for our fellow man, seems to have been lost long time ago, evil lurks everywhere, we must guard our own paths away from such waste.

EQUAL JUSTICE INITIATIVE CHALLENGES CASE-13 YR OLD LWOP

Children DO deserve a "chance", to sentence a child to life with NO chance of parole is barbaric and inhumane, it is "state sanctioned death penalty" for this child. Justice must be tempered with "compassion and mercy!" Demarious Banyard(13) at time of this case, now 20 yrs old, but facing life with NO chance of parole.
