For Troubled Youth, Prison-like Settings do more Harm than Good
"In the early morning hours of May 11, 2011, while sleeping on his living room sofa, Jeffrey Hall was shot dead from point-blank range. The killer was Hall’s son who had a long history of violence.
On Feb. 15, a Riverside County Juvenile Court Judge will decide the fate of this young boy, now aged 12.
What this boy needs is a safe and therapeutic environment focused on rehabilitation. Moreover, he needs a continuity of care and support that begins when he is in confinement, follows him through his treatment and custody, and remains with him when he reenters the community."
