    Bypassing detention centers

    In an effort to keep juvenile offenders out of detention centers, the state has started a program allowing teens and children convicted of a crime to stay at home while under court-ordered curfews and counseling. Do you think this program is a good idea and will be effective in preventing youth criminals from becoming adult offenders? Do you think there are other options than jail time for juveniles?

    I don't understand why we can't have a more creative rehabilitation system?� What is wrong with sending young criminals to a boot-camp type of program (without the guns) where they can have structure, learn discipline, and gain self confidence all while staying safe,�gaining new skills, and eating three square meals?� The problem with these kids is that they don't have structure or positive role models at home.� They lack encouragement and have way too much down time.� So we fix the problem by putting them back into that environment? I think adult-style jails are a bad�idea unless we�are interested in�creating career criminals.� But there has to be an alternative that does not include sending them home.�

    we are reaping, the welfare and discrimination crap, we fostered so long

    Economic studies show that what we are reaping, in fact, is making it increasingly difficult to obtain an abortion.� Crime rates fell dramatically 15-20 years after Roe v Wade in� proportion to the ease of obtaining an abortion.

    Sorry to spoil your perfect theory with imperfect reality, but that's the way it is.

    Once a criminal always a criminal. Since a criminal offenders record isavailable to anyone that requests it (a potential employer) then thecriminal offender is only qualified for one job, crime! He will NEVERbecome a productive member of society no matter how much of aturnaround he makes.

    Your premise is correct, but your conclusion may not be.� If we educate these sociopaths adequately using such programs as discussed in the article, they may grow up to be white collar criminals instead.� They could then go to work for investment banks or become Hollywood producers or political campaign consultants.

    ��� The problem is a lot of people who grow up in this culture, do not see these things as bad at all, and they continue to do them and pass them along to their kids, etc.

    ��� My solution would be to put them in the Detention Centers, teach them that these things are bad.
