Breeding Criminals

After my post yesterday highlighting the DOJ report on increasing violent crime attributed to juveniles in part because some states hadn't gotten tough with them, I feel obliged to note this typically great Prevention Works post pointing us to a WA state report on how trying juveniles as adults is a great way to create adult criminals, complete with examples of how. We get all the heinous guys spread every night across our local tv news. It's good for balance, if sad, to get the stories as well of those who get victimized badly by that system we're trying to toughen.
