    Boi I wish we would. I loved to watch Beyond Scared Straight. And it used to work for 98% of the children.

    no bail. judge go hard on all of them they should not
    have done that . when you go easy on them they do it again all of them should be in jail doing hard labor cutting down trees.

    So true Shawn, when they get prisoners to be up in their face, then they will know prison is not a good place. If you want to be bad, there’s always someone worse than you.

    The authorities also need to charge the two girls who was slapping around an Indian student in school. One student punch her in the head numerous times. Those two thugs needs to be in dodds, getting slapped around. Bet they won’t like that.
