I miss when people just rapped about this stuff. Enough outrage. Yeah, that aclu article is especially provoking, even with the neutral tone maintained in it.

What really struck me were the illiteracy rates. I had no idea! I worked at a juvenile detention center for a time, eventually leaving from a combination of the funding drying up (pay) and the staff. In the time I was there though, what a great fulfilling job. Those kids, and I assume people, with a little inspiration were all over the stuff I taught them. Everyone was very intelligent. Many of the students I just needed to teach some fundamentals and study skills and come up with a strategy for graduation and their career. After that with all the time on their hands they would just take off with out me, and it was all I could do to keep up! The teach was a joke, but that didn't even matter anymore once the kids learned to grab opportunity for themselves.
Wisdom is found where the wise seek it.

very interesting, opportunity (jobs and education) and reward I would think is far more effective than punishment, but we come up with these creative ways to punish people to deter crime, just like the drug war thread
