I saw a Docu about a boy in America that killed someone... which yes is a bad thing.. but this kid was just that .. a kid.. he was quiet, shy and a bit of a loner.. thye tried him as an adult and was put in prison with adults.... it became pretty clear more or less straight away he was going to either be killed in prison or was going to have to become like many of the career criminals to survive...

Prison destroyed what hope there was of rehabilitation for this kid and now i have no doubt he will be a worse person than he was when he went in....

I think if someone has the ability to be rehabilitated.. then prison is not necessarily the option.. work or schooling or boot camp i think is.. regardless of age!!

If a child is beyond rehabilitation then i believe there is an issue there deeper than just bad behaviour and that he/she needs specialist help.. not prison!!

Just what i think anywhoooo Smile
