Yes, your sentence explains why, as they are not in fact adults.

The_Waxies_Dargle t1_j1aix2j wrote

Your solution? Let's say they catch this 15 year old who methodically planned out and forcibly raped a woman. Are you going to therapize this behavior away?

This isn't shoplifting, or a fight. Or even armed robbery. Or even battery. It's violent rape by a stronger male of a vulnerable woman. This kind of thing doesn't just ruin the life of the woman. This trauma will infect those around her, and it will get passed down in one form or another to future generations.

The justice system isn't trying to fix this person, it's trying to dissuade the rapist's classmate or neighbor from doing the same.

None of the guardrails that are supposed to keep this individual from doing this worked up to this point. But suddenly this person is going to respond to tough love from a state appointed counselor?


pringlesbones t1_j1cxj1i wrote

Being tried as a juvenile doesn't have to mean treating it like a lesser crime, like he committed petty theft instead of rape. It can simply be keeping in mind that the criminal has a better chance of being rehabilitated. He'd still lose many of the freedoms that his peers can enjoy, and that would continue well into his adulthood. The problem is that it's easier (and more profitable for some) to throw someone in jail/basically let them completely go than have dedicated case workers to keep tabs, because our social infrastructure is shit.

Yes it does. Everyone knows that the juvenile system is a joke and hands out meaningless non-punishments.

bmore t1_j1bim99 wrote

Yes, statistically they are less likely to re-offend if they are handled in the juvenile system. Longer sentences and even the death penalty do not dissuade violent crime, in fact they're correlated with greater violent crime. In the time you wrote this lengthy comment, you could have read a literature review on this subject.

I was an Uber driver from 2019-2021. I started driving again early in 2022. What caused me to quit was two teens almost carjacked me, they ordered me as an Uber comfort/waited 15 minutes for the ride. When I approached they were wearing black ski masks and then one of the teens pointed to my dash cam and whispered something to the other teen. They cancelled the ride and ate a $16 cancellation fee and went back into the building.

I ubered because my regular job didn’t make enough and I used the Uber money to supplement my grad school tuition costs. It was normally a great job and I even liked driving drunk people because they were so fun to chat with. I’d drive people into West Baltimore that worked in other parts of the city and they were some of the kindest and most genuine people I met.

The teens doing this, really ruin everything for the community. Eventually we will have no Uber drivers. I would have kept driving had I not encountered so many safety issues in Baltimore

Although payed exists (the reason why autocorrection didn't help you), it is only correct in:

  • Nautical context, when it means to paint a surface, or to cover with something like tar or resin in order to make it waterproof or corrosion-resistant. The deck is yet to be payed.

  • Payed out when letting strings, cables or ropes out, by slacking them. The rope is payed out! You can pull now.

So I’ll post a link to that. Meanwhile, I’ll just copy and paste Mosby’s crime plan here because it’s so brief and generic, and this is the only thing I can even find on her campaign site that talks about fighting crime rather than police or reducing sentences:

“In the past seven years, the State’s Attorney’s Office has maintained a 90% conviction rate on average for violent offenses, an average 88% conviction rate for mandatory minimum eligible cases, and a 92% conviction rate for violent repeat offenders, all of which matches or surpasses the conviction rates of her predecessors over the ten years prior to her taking office. Mosby has aggressively focused her prosecutors on targeting violent criminals by creating a Gun Violence Enforcement Division that targets violent criminals and the totality of their activities rather than just their violent acts, and a Criminal Strategies Unit that uses data and long-term intelligence gathering in partnership with BPD detectives to target the most heinous criminals in our city.”

My partners bf went to jail twice for violent crimes and was released shortly after both times under Mosby's rule.

They have produced one Ivy league student in the last 10 years. Most of that school doestn go to college and the ones that do come back and always say that Milford did nothing to prepare them for college. These kids dont have accountability in school, they dont learn anything. My gf has been threatened by students parents because their little shit is failing school because their kid refuses to do anything.

Blaming brain development is just a excuse. My 11 and 7 year old kids know not to steal cars and rape people. Thats not going to change with they become 17. Its not a brain thing, its a how they were raised thing. You just dont want to admit for whatever reason.

Once again more excuses. Just because you weren't raised right doesn't give you a free pass to whatever you want. Just because you might have had a hard time in life doesn't give you the permission to rob people. I was bullied every day in school since 4th grade. I don't take my shitty experience and use it as an excuse to rob/rape people.

Those kids know what they are doing, they should be tried as adults and live in a cell for a few years. Its the same reason we charge kids as adults when they murder someone. Kids aren't stupid and using those excuses just gives them an easy out.

If we really invested in kids right now and built up a massive after school program, and mentor programs and built community centers that offered meals and parent support we could see kids flourish. It wouldn't be cheap but in the long run it's a hell of a lot cheaper than what we are paying for cops and crime.

You can see examples of it all over the place where individual schools get an amazing principal that turns an entire community around just by offering support. Issue is we can't rely on individuals to put in all the time needed to that on their own.,11%2C%20he%20spoke%20no%20English.

First example is just a cash infusion that have hope to families and turned a community around in one generation.

Second example is a single man utilizing his time and skills to fix a failing dangerous school and get buy in from the community at large.

If we took an approach that combined both of these methods and built it out across the city maybe we could start seeing some positive movement away from crime.
