Real Juvenile Justice Reform is Real Change

Real Juvenile Justice Reform is Real Change | SocialAction2015 | Scoop.it

Real reform of the juvenile justice system will be painful, but will reap great rewards.

Kamdon Thompson's comment, February 26, 2013 1:07 PM
I think one of the best ways to keep adults out of the prison system is to invest in them before they become an adult. While this will not work in every case, there is a large group of criminals that start their criminal career at a young age due to poverty and lack of supervision and guidance. If this group is not reached at a young age there is a good chance that they will be back in the system as an adult and they may be in and out of the system for most of their life. It is good to see that we are looking for a better solution than deterrence through incarceration.
Kassandr Liesenfeld's comment, February 26, 2013 10:16 PM
I totally agree with your statement. An ounce of prevention is better than a pound of cure. Trying to establish social control seems to me to be the better way of dealing with juvenile delinquency than punishing them without showing alternatives.

This could have been any one of us, or any one of our children who was falsely arrested, railroaded, and imprisioned. If we let this stand, who will be next?
Demand that the prosecutors stop covering up their frame-up of this innocent child and come clean. Demand that Davontae be freed to come home

Julia Heisler's curator insight, May 6, 12:41 PM

This article depicts how a man who claims he was beaten by seven Pennsylvania state troopers will now have his day in court. Robert Leone of Vestal, New York has the police video of his 2010 arrest that he claims shows police brutality. Leone says he was beaten at the scene and then again at the hospital before he was charged in a scuffle that began as a slow speed chase near Towanda. His supporters say the police video will be his best evidence. Friends of Leone say state police wanted to pull him over in March 2010 because his car looked like one in a reported hit and run. After his car was stopped on Route 6 near Towanda, Leone's friends say officers dragged him out. Video appears to show a trooper jumping from the car's roof and landing on Leone, who was lying face down. This relates to international relations because police brutality is a major issue within the United States and in the international realm.

A Just Cause Coast 2 Coast - Abuse of Power By Judges

A Just Cause Coast 2 Coast - Abuse of Power By Judges | SocialAction2015 | Scoop.it
Lamont Banks, Lisa Stewart and Dennis Merritt of the Colorado exoneration firm A Just Cause, discuss what happens when the wheels of justice trample unbridled over the rights of innocent Americans. Although the American system of justice is the most-respected worldwide, it is still a system designed, and operated, by humans, which means it's not perfect. Sam, Cliff, and Lisa will highlight ongoing struggles against "the system" to free wrongfully imprisoned people, and what happens when justice miscarries against an actually innocent person. Our Special Guest for tonight's show is Thomas (Stephen) Hubbard, Jr., a Freelance Court Reporter, who has years of experience working inside our United States' courtrooms. A Just Cause is currently campaigning for "FreeTheIRP6," who's been wrongly imprisoned in Florence, CO for a crime they didn't commit. Read full story: www.freetheirp6.org.

Something is wrong when thousands of resumes are mailed to employers with identical information and black-sounding names are 50% less likely to get a call back. Something is wrong when black people are charged prices roughly $700 higher than white people when buying cars. Something is wrong when black drivers are twice as likely to get pulled over by the police and black male teens are 21 times more likely to be killed by cops than their white counterparts. Something is wrong when black people are incarcerated at nearly six times the rate of white people.
