Re: “Stolen youth

I think you need to do more coverage of stories like this and in order for change to happen, this needs to be front page news or as close to the front of the paper as possible.

Re: “Stolen youth

While I agree that his record could cast doubt on his character, as far as his infractions are concerned, people need to realize that the world inside of those facilities are very different from the outside world. First of all, most facilities don't abide by the laws of the land because they have their own laws. Second, it is survival of the fittest. What would you do if you had to fight for your life from harassment and sexual innuendos coming from not only other inmates but mainly the correction officers that work there. And yes, they threaten your life if you speak out against them or even attempt to write grievances that seem to never surface. So, tell me what do you do? I know that no one's perfect but just imagine if those young fellows involved with the Duke Lacrosse Rape case didn't have the "Dream Team" of attorneys representing them, would they have been any less innocent or more guilty? THINGS THAT MAKE YOU SAY HMMMM!!! Just stop and think about situations such as this and if we all started to question and challenge the justice system, officers of the court, and those sworn to protect and serve us, you might find that the picture painted by all these individuals aren't truly as it seems. YOU KNOW THEY CAN LIE TOO!!!
