This kinda happened in Virginia as well. Where judges were sending kids to private prisons and taking kickbacks. Though there is no evidence this is the case here but I would certainly not be surprised if it was.

Do you mean Pennsylvania "kids for cash", which resulted in federal prison sentences for state judges, or was there another case in Virginia?

This should surprise no one. Parents expect schools to raise their children and schools expect police to discipline them. Everyone is passing the buck in child rearing.

It's the police and judges who really screwed up here:

"By policy and practice, [the Meridian Police Department] MPD automatically arrests all students referred to MPD by the District. The children arrested by MPD are then sent to the County juvenile justice system, where existing due process protections are illusory and inadequate. The Youth Court places children on probation, and the terms of the probation set by the Youth Court and DYS require children on probation to serve any suspensions from school incarcerated in the juvenile detention center."

2012-08-11 02:49:26 PM
This nonsense likely stems from the parents. Around here, the ones in the less academically inclined areas of town, will regularly call the police if their kid won't get out of bed in the morning, or take a shower before school, or go out the door to get on the bus. In the evenings they call the police when their kid won't do their homework. Might as well do what they are doing in the article and just not send the kids home at all...seems more efficient. Their room and board are already being paid for by the state at home...this way the police save gas money making homework call trips. It's a win-win for the taxpayer.

I was wondering exactly how much you had to rip one to end up being arrested.

Sure it's more than a one cheek sneak, but are you eating beans and boiled eggs and holding it in until you've got a really big one that reverberates down the halls and into the gymn?

So, here's the real problem: lack of parenting.

These parents raise these kids without discipline or moral standards, then send them off to school to learn how to be better hoodlums, and so they can pawn off their responsibilities on the 'gubmint'. The schools are not equipped to deal with the behavioral issues, and they have to turn to the police to enforce order and discipline.

Personally, I don't have a problem with the kids being disciplined by courts, and if that means incarceration of some sort, that's fine by me. While they're at it, they should also incarcerate the parents and/or otherwise hold them responsible for their kids' behavior. Of course, in this liberal state, there is no accountability or personal or familial responsibility -- and that's the real problem.

If it just so happens that the majority of the kids who have had no parental involvement or discipline are of color, that's not racism; it's reality.

They do that because it means they want gay sex in prison. As a white, upper-middle class, middle-aged man I am well versed in both prison culture and the fashion symbols of black, urban youth so you know I'm right.

So if the population is 62% black, that leaves 38% something else. They are trying to tell me that there has never been anyone's rights, other then blacks, violated? I've got to throw the BS flag on the headline, it's racist.

As a functional idiot I'm OK with jailing people that dress in a manner I don't like. It says nothing about the rebelliousness of youth and everything about the tearing apart of the fabric of all that is good. Kids that dress odd never grow out of it or get jobs. Arrest the youth. Squandering our rights means nothing next to fixing this. I'm a functional idiot.

I couldn't imagine being a teacher in today's environment. You couldn't pay me enough to deal with the little punks. And by little punks I mean the kid that has no intention of getting an education and is only there to disrupt the rest of the class. I'm willing to bet that there are teachers out there that could control the class if they could get rid of the little jerks that don't want to be there.

This is why I took primarily AP classes in high school whenever I could. It wasn't that I appreciated the extra challenge and I certainly wasn't a GPA whore, but everyone in the room was there for the same reason.

I'm okay with trying anything to knock some sense into these kids. It isn't happening at home. They get out of school and move into their adult lives completely unemployable. Sagging pants is even the half of it. Try to tell them nicely that they are not doing a work task right and here's the right way, and they are in your face screaming that you're disrespecting them. Show up when they want. Steal anything that isn't tied down. Of course, every 15 minutes you have to tell them to pull up their pants. I say Meridian Schools are trying their best to work through the lack of parenting, kids with the social skills of drunken baboons, and the glorification of the gangsta lifestyle. Trying to get through to them before there is another generation of drains on society that are good for nothing but sitting on the stoop drinking malt liquor, crying about the man keeping them down while collecting assistance or dealing.

Really?!? Could you possibly be any more racist? As a favor, I bolded your dog-whistle code words for you.

Here's why it's racist - it would NEVER HAPPEN in a middle class white school district. Even if they had identical rules in your local middle-class schools, the parents would have enough money and education (not smarts, education) to immediately fight it in the courts, and win. This kind of crap wouldn't last 6 month in a middle class white neighborhood. Further, the superintendent's heads would roll so far they'd be lucky to escape without losing their houses to civil judgments.

Call me old fashioned, but with jails packed to capacity I think jail should largely be reserved for violent offenders. Sure, we still need to lock up the degenerate con-men and serious thieves. Largely though, jail should be a last-resort tool to keep our street's safe.

Jail should not be a hammer to punish an underclass who are not as socially trained as we'd like. When the only tool you prefer is a hammer, every problem starts to look like a nail.

Sigh. Between people like myself who view most whites in Mississippi as racist wastes of space, and other folks in this thread who view any black or Latino teen as another prison cell waiting to be filled . . . it really is a wonder we don't have some serious regional atrocities being committed.

Dang shame. We both want to destroy the area, but neither side wants to join forces with the other to make it happen.
