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.
