kindly inent to youthful wrong doers How gently is the law treating the young hood who breaks into your home or place of business steals your car or rips off some old lady's Along with the rest of the public I don't know For under our new statutes there is no way for the public to know what punishment if any is being meted out to these young people for their crimes Kven their names are concealed
