“I would think after a while it would get so tiresome you just almost have a tendency to [say ] 'just let me throw the book at all of them,' and that is not the way to cure the problem”

We let men and women out of jail for robbery and drugs because you say there is no room in the jails but you are ready to put a teen age person in jail for sassing a bus driver. what is wrong with that picture? your school systems no longer care about the children . your judges no longer care. you just say put them away. get your robbers off the street, your drug dealers off the street. not put your children away.
