I believe myself to be very a abstentious Person. Some times I hate it but most times I love it, and I feel it to be very necessary in psychologically processing the different developments of today’s society,  and the influences that it may have upon myself.  I wish not to be an product of societal influence but my own person developed from his own intrinsic values, principles and original thoughts.

Juvenile Crime; Prevention Is Not Enough

Juvenile Crime; Prevention Is Not Enough

The word prevention is defined as: “the act of preventing” and as “a hindrance, obstacle, or impediment.” The exercise of “prevention” in juvenile crime by the juvenile justice system is ridiculous! Upon their first run-in with law, youth offenders are introduced to a system that is supposedly based on the principle of accountability. The Juvenile Justice System takes the position that true accountability requires juvenile offenders to repair the harm caused by their offending behavior and to understand and acknowledge the wrongfulness of their actions, their responsibility for causing harm, and the impact of the crime on the crime victim and community.   The juvenile justice system believes holding children accountable for their actions are the first of steps in prevention in criminal offenses as an adult.

The hypocrisy in this basis is that the same system refuses to accept accountability for juvenile crime desistance by using terms and practices such as prevention. The impedance of crime is a lazy and hypocritical outlook in the juvenile justice system’s responsibility to reach the mind and spirit of these children.  These juvenile offenders are the key element in which support the Juvenile Justice System’s financial lively hood. The median salary of J.J.S county worker is $62577 – $99263 annually aside from quality benefits such as health, life, and retirement insurance. I believe that the juvenile justice system is just as responsible to these delinquents as these delinquents are to their crimes. Most of all I think the juvenile justice system is especially accountable in cases of recidivism. Read the rest of this entry

Josh Hamilton of the Texas Rangers belted four home runs on Tuesday night in Baltimore, just 17 days after Philip Humber of the Chicago White Sox tossed a perfect game in Seattle. The Rangers thumped the Orioles, 10-3, with Hamilton adding a double to set the American League’s single-game record for total bases, with 18. He tied the major league record, set by Joe Adcock of the Milwaukee Braves in 1954.

S/o to Josh I guess blue eyes aren’t a problem at all this season.lol.

The last time someone hit 4 in a game was Carlos Delgado in 2003. (I saw that one 2) For the season, Hamilton is now batting .406 with 14 home runs and 36 RBI.the homie Pujols has 1 and batting .214 Keep up the good work HAM.   Baseball History for that ass.
