What happens when you put juvenile prisoners in an adult isolation lockup?

I do truly believe this quote in the article about what happens to the young in Adult Isolation.
~ " "It unleashes an army of young predatory male street criminals."~
That is what usual happens & these young kids grow up stay Predatory Males committing more CRIME.

Noted, TY cal for sharing & posting about this important issue.

It is a shame that our children are growing into adults these days,Who do you blame for children growing into adults before their time.

Many young in Prison are converted to ISLAM. Certain factions of ISLAM are rapidly gaining Bloods, Crypts devoted to the darker side of ISLAM, Home grown terrorists will be our future.

The whole world is in a tail spin.... wonder who it is that has caused these events to unravel, it is almost like a 4 dimensional game of chess..... As Leonard Cohen sings" Everybody Knows" :o(

Thanks Cal peace to everyone - if we want it

More then half of the nearly 3 million in prison are there for drug related crimes. How much safer for society and cheaper considering the painful costs of police, fire, court system and prisons if we legalize drugs. We could set up localized clinics to provide clean drugs, sterile syringes and needles and end more then half of our crime problems. Then we could also consider that prohibition does not work, never has and never will. We could also consider the loss of manpower to the criminal system, but that would be considering the human cost - that could be socialist. Or it could be just simply humanist.

Why i'm voting for Keith Branch for Judge of Houston's 315th Juvenile Court! He's worked in the juvenile "justice" system for 27 yrs & knows the extreme wrongs done to our young people & is working to change the system for the betterment of our youth!
