Unlike adult the rooms are decorated with Boys' Life paintings which depict families cavorting on mountaintops and happy lads playing baseball. Also unlike adult the defendants sometimes appear without they often do not understand the proceedings or even know the charges against and they stand all during trial as if it were naught but sentencing time. It is in the view of many little else but a farce. The kids facing the bench are mostly mostly black and mostly without even rudimentary safeguards. The Supreme Court did decide that juveniles were entitled to Constitutional guarantees in about but in fact they are still little more than non-people facing a brief and often cruel kind of non-justice. Unlike juveniles in Philadelphia the rest of are not entitled to bail or jury and the conduct of court proceedings is haphazard and variable. Hearsay is frequently public defenders seldom employ the adversary system and when it's all the punishments are not made to fit the but the children. At least one judge here says the whole proceedings are legally illegitimate. Lois named to the Philadelphia bench two years refuses to sit in family court the juvenile is not in a world of the child with its care and or in the world of the adult with its rules and rights. The juvenile is in the place to which worthless things are The same description might fairly be made for the whole system of juvenile justice in America. Police can arrest children for offenses such'as and which do not even exist in the adult community. Children can be tried in proceedings so quick and harried judges regularly hear 30-35 juvenile 'cases a day that only the written record remembers what has happened. And even when they're not guilty of but jusi unfortunate in their selection of the kids can be sentenced to even mental institutions where they can be kept until adults decide another course. Of the system is not meant to be so devastating. It is actually a charitable of the nation's original method of handling youthful the same way as adults. In an effort to remove children from the punitive 19th century social experimenters created the concept of And to a large the change did extract many kids from the rubber hose and chain-gang judiciary system of the but early hopes of treatment-oriented Golden Mile Herald Open Monday through Friday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday from 1 to 5 p.m. Next Open 1 p.m. on Victoria Day.

Family disposition of juveniles were dashed on the rocks of a slipshod society. For seven decades after the first juvenile children were not considered people by the Constitution. Even the 1967 Supreme Court ruling has not changed this entirely. Children are still considered state when courts deam it they can be removed from at the say of a judge in 10 and be kept in institutions indefinitely for nothing more serious than school truancy. So far has the original concept of juvenile justice in that the country does not even have a good count of those kids who experience it. Officials can only estimate that each year IVi to 2 million children under 18 fall into the hands of the perhaps 300.000 of them winding up incarcereated. The Department of Education and Welfare estimates that one of six boys and one of nine boys and girls will be arrested before age 18. For the the middle class and the experience will be seldom more than for the poor it can be long and chilling. Large American cities witness the tragic consequences of juvenile justice daily. Poor children of deceased parents are put in mental institutions because other facilities are full. Neglected youngsters are placed in which turn out to be and occasionally escape by committing suicide Kids deemed by lethargic school administrators to be are pushed out of then swept off the streets by and sentenced to reformatories by judges who can think of no other recourse. This is not to say the kids are all totally innocent The FBI reports that almost half of all serious crimes in the nation are now committed by minors. Age 15 is an especially dangerous juncture. They kill. beat old work junk. Fred child advocate with the Washington-based For the Love of kids have to be just as some adults But do they have to be jailed from a courtroom where basic civil rights are And do they have to be jailed in penitentiary ghettos where they are subject to sexual brutal guards and inadequate Philadelphia reports assaults for one 26-month New York delinquents tell of guards who peek in on their masturbation releases and then publicize the the state of according to one late 1960s fed juveniles on an inadequate a day There are better ways. And the to say begins with the granting of full constitutional rights for children in distress. Howard in his book in cites the case of a nine-year-old who took a quarter from another lad and was booked for as it stands unless children are fortunate enough to have working mistakes like given a child's lack of full societal may escalate into incredibly entangled legalistic horrors. When she was a juvenile Judge Lois Forer says she used to hear the same plea over and over from kids in trouble. one will no one will the ears as well as the eyes of juvenile justice are too often closed to the ruination it provokes the concept of juvenile justice is to nip potential criminals in the to make the nation of tomorrow in fact entire generations of angry kids have grown up knowing that convicted felon Spiro Agnew can go free but habitual truant Johnny Jones must pay it is not a lesson of which the courts the prisons or the public can be proud.
