I do not think that the juvenile systems has helped juveniles in years.... Watching my son go through the system from the age of 13 thru 18 he has learned how to survive in jail now at 24... You would not believe the all the probation violations he had to follow at a young age . It was like they were waiting for him to mess up so they could say I told you so..

I was just wondering if anyone else saw Juvies yet? I went to the Santa Barbara Film festival and saw it. I tend to take a liking to these type of topics since I'm finishing school to be a juvenile probation officer. Well I just wanted to let who ever hasn't seen it that it was absolutly awsome and so well done! If I remember correctly I believe it is also on sale on the Juvies web site for those who are interested in it.

I want to thank Mr. Wahlberg for making the movie. I just hope the publicity doesn't perpetuate the myth that juvenile, as opposed to adult, prison is acceptable for non-violent early offenders.

A Chicago detective said this to me when I inquired about alternative sentences that they use, "Sending a kid to prison is creating a criminal."

I hope the movie opens some eyes. I just hope it doesn't diminish the fact that juvenile prisons are also harmful. All prisons should be used as a last resort, when other methods have failed.
