Excerpt-please read FULL article..ALL children deserve a "chance"

"Mark Holden, general counsel and senior vice president at Koch Industries, said prison time could often be more effectively replaced with another remedy. Working as a prison guard in Worcester, Massachusetts, before he went to law school, Holden said, "There were people who -- they weren't violent. They made mistakes and they needed support. They probably needed drug treatment. They needed a job. They needed opportunity. They didn't get it so they became lost in the system and forgotten about."
