Whoa. So, I feel like, maybe their idea of scaring this kid into submission might have backfired. Either the kid thinks he's hard enough to tell those inmates to take off, or he knows he is. Regardless, that's a scary mentality to go in with. That kid is going to be a problem. No doubt there will be violence involving him. He clearly has no fear, or respect for anyone that was in that room. Now, it may be in part because of the cameras, but I don't think that is going to make much of an impact on his actions in the future. I also imagine a majority of his time will be spent in solitary confinement.
Rob Duke's comment, November 5, 2012 5:40 PM
Yes, the downside of trying to scare the young ones is they want so bad to be tough and grown up so jail may become a symbol for maturity.

What the World is Like in Solitary Confinement Seen Through Prisoners’ Letters

What the World is Like in Solitary Confinement Seen Through Prisoners’ Letters | SocialAction2014 | Scoop.it

BridgetM's comment, November 2, 2012 6:13 PM
Even thinking about being held in solitary confinement gives me chills, people need interaction and communication in order to remain sane. This is another method of deterrence theory that does not seem to be working, since people still commit crimes in prison. I am not opposed to punishment within the prison system, but depending on the conditions of the confinement, I think many prisons take this practice too far. I especially disagree with this practice when it comes to children. Their brains need stimulation to grow and develop and if you take them away from that they will never have a good chance of rehabilitation.
