Who is the serious, violent, habitual offender?

http://vachss.com/av_dispatches/lifestyle.html

WHO IS THE SERIOUS, VIOLENT, HABITUAL OFFENDER?

Excerpt....Please read FULL article

"One of the reasons that our profession has been willing to accept the idea that there is a new breed of juvenile is that this profession does not want to face the fact that it has failed with a particular, tiny segment of the population for which we are responsible. It is much easier to say we are geared up to deal with "delinquents," that we can handle all kinds of "juvenile" crime, and that there's a certain type of kid whom we call the "life-style violent juvenile"

There's no such thing as a bad boy!

JUVENILE INCARCERATION~A CHILD'S NITEMARE by Stephen P. Conrad

http://baltimorepostexaminer.com/juvenile-incarceration-childs-nightmare/2014/05/14

Excerpt......Strongly urge readers to please read FULL article, excellent information about and for "children".........please share with others

"The facts should be alarming to every American. It is a horrific journey in which I have some personal experience, so I am quite familiar with the lifelong emotional, mental and spiritual scars of what incarceration will do to a child. The psychological damage done to a child even by short-term juvenile incarceration is damning and often irreversible. Incarcerated children are far more likely to re-offend within a year than those given alternative sentences.

My personal thanks to Mr Conrad for his most important article.

ABUSE OF POWER~Mara Leveritt

http://www.maraleveritt.com/
Written by Mara Leveritt

Excerpt, please read and share with others, the FULL article

"This site is about abuse of power, particularly in our justice system. It's also about transparency and accountability, the two medicines that prevent--or cure--those abuses. Don't think that the travesties I've described in The Boys on the Tracks, Devil's Knot or Dark Spell (to be released soon) are isolated or over. The stories continue here--and everywhere. Open eyes. Look around. "
