Let's talk about THE SCHOOL TO PRISON PIPELINE!
« on: March 28, 2013, 09:41:30 pm »
America has developed possibly the most perfect business scheme ever... private, for-profit prisons. But with a declining crime rate, wherever will we get enough prisoners to make this stay lucrative?

Oh.

Yep.  And this is what makes "diversion" even more horrifying.

Okay, so the kid is middle class enough to get diversion, right?  HE'S STILL FUCKING BRANDED, marked for life with the brand of the system.

So he didn't do time this time.  Next time he sneezes, he's fucked.  But it lets people think the system isn't the horror show that it is.

I wonder who writes and supports all these bills that push for increased policing of schools and criminalization of children for what was formerly simply considered misconduct?

Oh.

Yep.

A tantrum in class when he was six means that if he's caught with a joint when he's 15, it won't be a first offense.

Hey, I wonder who's behind all these tough-on-crime laws?

Oh.

Because once you've been "diverted" you can never act freely again.

Wanna go to a protest? You better be out of there before the civil disobedience starts, or your ass is going away.
Wanna run for office? Sorry, dude, this is TOTALLY coming out during your campaign. Best to support some Good CitizenTM that doesn't have a record.
Wanna teach? You'll be lucky if you get accepted, and just wait until the parents find out!
Wanna do anything online? You'd best watch your ass, because everything online is a felony if we say so, and we already let you go once!

...and the "diverters" (diversionists?) are often private, too. And boy do they lobby!

Quote
The Pennsylvania Supreme Court has overturned some 4,000 convictions issued by him between 2003 and 2008, claiming he violated the constitutional rights of the juveniles – including the right to legal counsel and the right to intelligently enter a plea. Some of the juveniles he sentenced were as young as 10-years old.

That's one judge, and at least 4000 kids lives ruined. Restitution of $1.2 million.

That's $ 300/ Kid, split equally. I assume the logic here is that is a lot of money to a ten year old so it's appropriate.

Another angle is that this gives an indication of the scale of the horror. Assume 1 judge with similar sentencing attitudes per state. Be generous and assume there's no corruption.

That's a scary number, and that's being totally optimistic.
