Children Behind Bars

Via Scoop.itJuvenile Justice

Our youth are not failing the system; the system is failing our youth. Our legal system has been called the best in the world, but we take children, too young to understand the consequences of their actions and throw them into an adult world of arrests, court trials and prison sentences. This site is dedicated to children who have been tried as adults and are now serving sentences in adult prisons. Most were younger than 16 and most are serving life sentences with no chance for rehabilitation. Please listen to the plea of the children. There are children languishing in adult prisons for the rest of their lives. We are hoping that some or just one of you will stand up for them and help us change the current juvenile laws. Other states are realizing this need for change and are doing something about it. Just what is cruel and unusual punishment? Shouldn’t these children be rehabilitated and not just thrown away? We are willing to help in anyway to facilitate a change. Please help us save them.
