Signed. But the Note is different, Cal. Why on EARTH should ANY governmental official need be told that children need be protected from sexual assault in secure facilities. I know this happens in adult facilities, indeed there are those who consider it part of the sentence as abhorrent as that is, but children? Children are scarred for life by trauma like this, I would be the rate of recidivism for children who are abused in secure facilities is near 100%. It doesn't matter what crime they committed as children. We, homo sapiens, are not fully mature until our pre frontal lobe is, in our mid-20's. This is why children can kill other children and barely know it is wrong, or not justified because they were mad. Many states are moving to deny life without parole, or death, sentences for children because they literally do not reason as adults and do not fully understand the ramifications of their crime. Do we need be protected from violent children? Of course, but we also need protect THEM, to give them a chance at rehabilitation and life in the mainstream one day. The very idea that Eric Holder needs be told this is ludicrous; that anyone in charge of incarcerations of juveniles or who works with them needs be told this is ludicrous. We are a world quickly going insane. One wonders only when our balloon pops, because with "needs" like this, it is only a matter of time. Were I a supreme being, which I am far from, I would have already sent the lot of us to our rooms until we learned to think like sentient adults.

Disgraceful that this should be going on. Children should not share prisons with adults.

Signed and shared on FB, thanks Cal. Children shouldn't be in prison with adults in the first place...and there should be no privatization of prisons!
