What's with all the publicity yesterday about a program that was initiated years ago and was successful in giving a second chance to misdemeanor juvenile offenders? The program disappeared from use because there was a lack of funding. From the media coverage one may think that this was the invention of the current sheriff. Did not see any mention that this program even existed before...

Yes and so were the juvenile citations which if a first time measdemeanor offender completed community service hours their record would be clean...this was an agreement with the parents also to get them involved in the process...If they did not wish to participate of complete the hours assigned the same charges were brought back..Big Brothers and Big Sisters were the major player used to keep track of the citations and the hours were completed...Watching the news yesterday you'd thought they had invented the wheel....

A few years ago my son got caught with some booze and doing some hell raising, he was only 17. They let him do community service. He worked at the library. Never had any more trouble.
He was able to secure a clearance and joined the 82nd Airborne as a Comm Specialist for 4 years. He is now the father of 3 and is a foreman for a large chemical plant. None of this would have been possible if he had a arrest record. It damn sure worked for him....

So sometimes a 'second chance' is worthwhile instead of treating every stupid juvenile mistake as the crime of the century...said it many times...would hate to be a kid growing up now..get into a fight with the wrong kid and you are screwed with a criminal charge...May not always work but it's always worth a chance....

Bravo. You actually DO have some sense of propriety. Good post.



A friend is hard to employ in spite of his valuable and unique skills. He has a felony on his record from when he was 18. He's now 33.

He was walking through a neighborhood @ 3am....he lived one street over. He wanted a beer and the neighborhood is chock-a-block with boats on trailers after Sat. outings. Thinking there might be a cooler on one of them with that stray beer, he climbed in one of the boats and hit the jackpot. A whole cooler full of beer.

He took two and jumped over the side. The owner came out and started chasing him so he turned and threw a beer at him to slow the process. It hit the dude in the chest and he caught my firend anyway.

Trespassing, petty theft, possession of alcohol by a minor, and felony assault.

In my day his daddy would have been awakened and the situation solved post haste. He got probation and a permanent stain, and that ain't even close to right.

He never even got the chance to drink the damned beer.
