ahhh someone has to be in charge an authority in any system.

now this can't be the kids cause they don't know enough to manage the system so the adults need to be in charge and if the kids won't or can't go along with the established program then its off to jail, prison or the military where they can learn some discipline an acceptance of authority.

america should re institute the draft everyone finishing high school who isn't college material should do 3- 4 years in some branch of the armed services.

get them off the streets out of the gang environment and let them sample the real world.
