Attacking Crime or Kids? Juvenile Justice at the Crossroads.
Larson, Scott J.
Reclaiming Children and Youth: Journal of Emotional and Behavioral Problems, v6 n3 p138-39,143 Fall 1997
Sounds a strong warning about the destructive political process of using delinquent youth as scapegoats and then giving up on them. Claims that many young, redeemable offenders are being discarded in adult prisons, a process opposed by most professionals. Argues that dismantling the juvenile justice system will increase criminal behavior. (RJM)
