ArkAngel: In re Gault, the mentioned case that brought the Constitution to juvenile courts is quite farked up.Gerald Gault was accused of making an obscene phone call by a neighbor. He was arrested without his parents being informed, held without notification of the charges, not allowed an attorney, and not allowed to confront his accuser. The witnesses weren't sworn in and there was no record taken.He was then sentenced to six years in juvenile detention. If he was 18 when accused, the maximum would have been two months and a $50 fine.
TheEdibleSnuggie: Wait...Isn't this the same magazine who gave that Tsarnaev asshole the rockstar treatment- with a boyish picture for naive girls to swoon over- on the cover of their 'magazine' along with the headlining story?Oh, and didn't they also give one of the most canned editorial responses to intentionally creating their controversy by saying that since Deer Jerky Czar is about the same age as their tired, egotistical, and arrogant reader base, that his story deserves the coverage because Rolling Stone is a 'serious' periodical, and...you know...we need to sell magazines (that one article doubled its newsstand sales)?Yeah, fark this magazine. I agree that the juvy system in this country needs some serious overhaul. But Rolling Stone isn't going to be my credible source for hard journalism on this topic.
Mugato: If the article is true then that's pretty farked up.
DrBenway: Rolling Stone used to have a pretty good reputation for digging into stories like this. Do they still do longer form stuff, or is this the extent of it?
