So I hear all the time that certain groups do nothing but complain about a problem.  I actually agree but I think that it is much more wide spread than is let on.

I agree with the basic premise of this thread.  So here is the question to all.  What do we do different?  How do we change it?  What concrete ideas do we formulate to present to our representatives to make things better?

In order to solve this problem we need
1. Crimes against society need to be punished regardless of the age of the offender.
2. Offenders under (fill in the blank) age, need to have a pathway to redemption in the eyes of society.
3. A clear understanding of what that pathway is:
    a. clear sentencing guidelines
    b. clear expectations of behavior while in custody
    c. clear expectations of personal development while in
        custody
    d. clear process for reintegration into society under terms
        that allow the individual to live up to societies expectations
        This would include things like sealing of records and other
        steps that would facilitate, for example, getting a job or
        serving in the military etc.
    e. clear process for those individuals that choose not to take
        advantage of the fact that their age at the time of the
        crime will give them special treatment that others would
        not receive.

In a nutshell, what do we do when society has to step into a "child's" life and do the things that parents should have done?
1. Teach
2. Discipline
3. Punish when called for to benefit them not the punisher
4. Make sure that they understand that repetition cannot/will not be tolerated.

Go....



In theory and on paper, that all looks good but the problem begins with our politicians.  They are the ones constantly pounding the drums, stirring up fear and promising us that only they can protect us from it.

Hell, when even a left icon like a Clinton can harbor the pathetic idea of children as super predators, I honestly see little hope for the near future, not in our lifetimes.  I seem to remember commenting that that was one of the things that displeased me with Hilary, perhaps why I couldn't bring myself to vote for her.

Good post Goose.

Under Communism, it's the exact opposite.
