This is an excerpt...PLEASE READ FULL ARTICLE

.....The juvenile justice system in the United States is supposed to focus on rehabilitation for young offenders. But. for generations, it has largely been a purgatory, failing to protect them or give them the help and counseling they need to become law-abiding adults. Children who end up in juvenile courts often do not get due process protections like written complaints presenting the charges against them, adequate notice about legal proceedings or meaningful assistance of counsel.  http://www.nytimes.com/2013/01/01/opinion/juvenile-court-reform-in-tennessee.html?_r=0
