    The man? He is still a boy and if we had some good male leadership in this county, something or someone that can lead these young men into the right direction, it possibly could save this fella from a hard life. I believe all it takes is some truly concerned citizens to put a organization together to help these types of individuals. The law just wants to put these kids faces all over the media and charge them with felonies that will follow them for the rest of their lives. He could straiten himself out with a father figure to lead him in the right direction, somebody has got to address these boys. To teach them self respect, someone that can pat them on the back and lead them, help them set a goal to work for. That’s what “our job” as older adults is, to guide for the betterment of the individual.

    Obviously your not getting my point. There are more people in prison in the united states then all the rest of the countries combined. There is a moral/leadership problem, in this country. There are to many people like you not recognizing it. It’s someone else’s problem, no it’s everyones problem. Putting everyone in prison isn’t the answer, there’s a breakdown somewhere that needs to be fixed.
