Young and in Trouble
From the paper:
Juvenile crime has always been a touchy issue. The suspects are somebody’s son or daughter, sister or brother, niece or nephew and to their family they are still just children even though they may have committed a crime. The courts and the juvenile system walk a very thin line when it comes to the corrections of juveniles because of the fact that they are not yet adults but think that they are. In recent years it has come to the public’s attention that there are racial and gender troubles within the nation’s system. Correctional facilities face complaints of discrimination as well as sexual harassment form the inmates and their families. Authorities are working toward finding solutions and repairing the damage already done as well as preventing any future problems.
