commented on Why Vote No on the Kiddie-Condo-Juvie
As a former social service youth worker, I definitely agree that support programs are under-funded and that providing meaningful community engagement options is an important step in reducing the number of youth in the juvenile justice system. I hadn't thought before about what it would look like to remove juvie as an option before - this seems like a pretty well-written argument in favor. I have to do some looking into these community alternatives - anything that keeps kids out of prison while creating stronger community networks sounds like an option worth exploring to me.
