  • I think that juveniles, as well as adults, should do hard labor. Why not have the “work gangs “ back? How about these juveniles cleaning up all the graffiti? It is hard work and it would make our community nice again and maybe they would think twice about committing crimes in the future.
    Under no circumstances should they go back to their parents. They weren’t parenting if their kids are out there doing crimes.

    • Not necessarily were they not parented! You can be the best parent and pay attention to your kids, discipline, hold them accountable for their actions, teach them every action has a consequence and kids will still do what they want. Don’t always be quick to blame the parenting!

  • Eluding… not… alluding… What were they alluding to? They may have been alluding to the fact that they were planning on eluding, but you and allude all you want so long as you aren’t threatening anyone. Eluding is what gets you charged.
