Oh I am so shocked and surprised!!! He was probably an adult anyway!!

I sometimes work in a juvenile detention center for a major metro city. Since illegal aliens arrive with no paples, they have to take their word for age, etc.

Surprise, surprise, illegal aliens know that 18 is the age of majority and that minors receive lighter sentences. Therefore, there are illegal aliens who are obviously older than 18 in juvie!

Also, the crimes in juvie have become more sophisticated! In the old days, students would steal pencils, paper clips, etc., to make out of weapons. Now, they are making knives out of tin rims from metal buckets, etc....sorta like in the big house...know what I mean?!!!
