Good to see this action being taken.

I say put them on a chain gang and they can clean up the highways during the heat of the summer. I'll not be surprised when juvenile crime rises in my home state. The kid's death was tragic and shouldn't have happened but it's another case of a few bad apples screwing it up for others. The camps served a purpose and while not perfect at reforming some of these kids I'm sure it made an impression on a fair amount of them and straightened them out. Hopefully Jeb and the boys can come up with a good replacement.

Oh totally agree and think of the money the State and cities would save.

I think the bootcamps are a good thing for kids in trouble, but some 'D.I's take things way too far, as shown in this case (I highly doubt the kid died soley from a blood disorder), and some definite regulations should be put in place as to what can and cannot go on in these camps.. Punching and kicking a kid? Wrong. Especially when theres nothing the kid can do.. He can't leave. He can't run away. He can't call 911, because lord knows if he did, no one would believe him.

And while we're at it, how about we set them out in the sun picking cotton and whip 'em if they get out of line  sarcastic

If that was OK we would not have had to shut the camps now would we.

Nah, we've got machines for that now whether they be white or black criminals. Come on now. I'm just advocating hard labor for criminals.

I like the chain gang idea . . . . within reason . . .

N1120A, the reference to the cotton pickin' is a bit over the top . . . but God forbid we should make the bad guy work for a living, eh?

As for the youth camps, it's unfortunate some of the idiots that run these things get carried away. We have one in Alaska . . . and I've seen many of the kids graduate, with their HS credentials, and go on to make something of themselves. Any negative contact with these kids is not good - for some of them, it's the reason they are there in the first place! Of course, that's not to say there shouldn't be negative consequences for negative actions . . . but it certainly doesn't condone maltreatment.

I hate the fact that parents allow their kids to get to a point where a Youth Camp is necessary, but it's a fact of life.

Sweat equity, do the crime and do the time, and or work off your debt to society.
