Echoes of the Superpredator - New York Times

Echoes of the Superpredator - New York Times | Humane Exposures: Juvenile Justice | Scoop.it
Echoes of the Superpredator New York Times Many states continue to punish juveniles as harshly as they can, even though the Supreme Court has held in a series of landmark rulings since 2005 that young people are “constitutionally different” from...
Humane Exposures's insight:

"The issue is not, as supporters of mandatory sentencing would have it, about going easy on criminals. No one is ordering judges to release inmates who are not rehabilitated, or who pose a threat to society. Rather, it is about giving legal meaning to the neurological, psychological and emotional vulnerabilities of young people. Those who make mistakes — even terrible ones — should not be sentenced to die in prison."

PRX » Series » Prison Poetry Workshop | Humane Exposures: Juvenile Justice | Scoop.it

Sending radio waves through prison walls we reach an audience with content that may change their life. The Prison Poetry Workshop is the only national radio series linking prisoners to the outside world through the power of poetry. Each program has an interactive writing exercise lead by a nationally renowned poet that invites all listeners to submit a poem to the Prison Poetry Workshop.

Sit in any prison classroom or recreation room and ask: How many writers are in the room? How many people are writing rhymes or poems? Carefully-folded pieces of paper come out of pockets – words written in tightly stylized hand-writing. As we listen to these poems we realize they hold a deep significance to our understanding of American culture and its tradition of democratic arts.
