Re: “Kid Crime, Adult Time

Spokoresident,do you really believe what you wrote?Everything you wrote is said with the same mentality as someone who condemns whole races for the actions of only a few.I see nothing of substance behind your words,only hate.

Re: “Kid Crime, Adult Time

Kids are the future....all kids.Kids make mistakes,that is why adults raise them,,,to teach them,not to give up on them.Throwing them in a jail with adult prisoners and no education is condemming them to a life with little hope or chance.
Some of them may be career criminals,but not all of them unless this system continues to treat them all as 1.In some of the replies they have all been called losers or scumbags.This is one of the biggest problems they face.Lock them away and throw away the key so we dont have to deal with them.
Thats all it is about,locking them up.Plain and simple.The more we lock up the safer the world will be.See where that has gotten us??? NOWHERE.Economy is falling,prison costs are killing the budget and still you have people saying lock them away.
Kids being placed with adult criminals helps reform them how???

Re: “Kid Crime, Adult Time

David 99 you make some good points as well
.
I dont believe there was any exaggertion in this article,it is just the truth that people would rather not see.Problems like this are not a problem in peoples eyes until it happens to their children.
This is the kind of thing that needs to be brought out and seriously thought about.We can look at the world today and the society around us and look at the truth,but it will never be addressed unless it will get someone re elected.Thats politics,its a job.
Kids getting tossed in adult prisons isnt a job,its a reality that needs to not exhist in the future.This article touches on another misjustice in the legal system.,the archaic felony murder rule.
I go to a store with my friends with the intention to buy a lottery ticket but once we get inside I change my mind.I go over and buy a Dr.Pepper while they each go up and buy a lottery ticket.A few days later along comes the drawing and one of my friends has all the only winning ticket !Does that mean we all win?I mean we all went there with the intention to buy a lottery ticket right?...or will they just give the money to the person who actually had the winning ticket ?We all know the answer.
Now you and your friends go out to rob a store ,one of your friends has an unloaded gun.The weapon goes off killing an employee,who is guilty?
It is done during a felony so it is murder ,you knowingly going to commit a felony are guitly of the same crime as the person that shoots the weapon.You are guilty of murder.
Overcrowding in prison happens why ?
They send kids and adults to jail for crimes they know they never committed.With the economy getting worse non violent offenders are let out over and over again.Our system lets people they know will re offend out early and keeps in people they know didnt commit a crime.
We are killing our future .

Re: “Kid Crime, Adult Time

Innocent until proven guilty is contradicted by automatic declination.Sending a juvenille to adult court is saying they are guilty of something already.If a juror is in an adult courtroom and a juvenille is brought in in,they know it isnt for shoplifting a a pack of gum.
Remember back to when you were a kid,remember the things you did that were stupid,illegal or not.Would you still do them now?
They are still growing and learning,they feel indestructible.They have not seen their parents and loved ones pass away,been in close calls that make you realize life is fragile.
Automatic declination is against the law,against common sense.Every Juvenille involved in something has a reason,has a story.
