Comment on Juvenile detention ‘incident’: Don’t mention assault. by James T Smerk.

Just tell us the facts and let us judge in our own minds how we want.
The only possible reason for covering it up (spinning it) is because they don’t want the public to know these young criminals are as bad as they are, and they want us to think they are all misunderstood individuals who are harmless.
My hat is off to anyone working there.
If these “troubled youths” want to make waves in youth detention how about we throw them in with the adults, see if their behaviours would change.

Police want parents to stop youth crime
Evelyne you are frequently having a go at people who wish to remain anonymous, get over it mate.
Some people want to remain anonymous due to work, political interest or fear or reprisal in some way. Nobody is using these comments in a factual way (nor should they) so where is the harm in it.
I’m sure if there were inappropriate comments the moderator would remove them.
Oh, and the only people allowed to punish these people are the courts (via politicians), they are the ones with the fear of misguided labels so these mob need to be called out to defend their actions more often (if at all).


Sleeping on the floor in over-crowded juvie
The sad fact is most of these young people have been brought up with no boundaries or rules in their lives and commit crimes and end up in the one place which relies heavely on boundaries and rules.
The people working at these places must be saints with what they have to put up with.
You hear stories of no respect for them, they get spat at, punched and worse but have to remain quiet on all the issues out of fear of losing their jobs and fear of the media blowing defensive actions out of the water with their one sided bias.
I think a honest account of the whole experience needs to be documented so they public can know what really happens.
This might result in the government caring more about kids’ quality of life from he start of their lives and not after the damage has been done and is most likely unreversable. End of rant.
