  • TN Juvenile Offenders

    Does it seem sometimes that you are always dealing with and arresting the same juvenile offenders?

    In TN, a recent study ordered by a judge found: " At least 67 juvenile offenders who had been ordered into the custody of the state Department of Children's Services escaped and were arrested on new charges in Nashville within the past three months."

    It is so bad that the judge "last week charged DCS (Department of Children's Services) Deputy Commissioner Steve Hornsby and four other top agency officials with contempt of court after a teenager who is a suspect in an armed robbery escaped and later failed to show up for a Jan. 6 court hearing. "

    Wow--it sure will help when some courts and government officials realize that certain offenders under the age of 18 are not just misunderstood, but can be real law breakers as well...

    Local DCS in TN has been under the gun for many months because of their enforcement/application practices. I can see why. TN State Government is a joke and it is starting to become obvious with the many issues that are arising with TN state agencies (DCS/DHS/THP/Legislation/etc).
    I'm 10-8 like a shark in a sea of crime..

      Once you get past the cops the whole mess is one big joke.

        Sorry to bump this thread, but I think juvenile offenders who are younger than 18 should be sent to some juvenile boot camps to set them straight. Juvenile boot camps are more effective alternative to prison, because they teach juvenile offenders discipline, responsibility and various skills that will be useful for them in future.

          Only if the juvenile wishes to make changes in his/her lifestyle.

          If they are not willing to do that............a boot camp just gives them more exposure to other criminals.

          Iowa tried boot camps for a short time and found the concept to be lacking..........
