Maybe a form of a bootcamp style prison for offenders would be more appropriate, similar to the ones in the US. They have good results and instill the
same discapline as military service.
No not similar to the ones here... These kids need to have the fear of God put in them, not sit around and watch tv until meal time. I think you have
a misconception of our prison system in America. The only thing they worry about here is getting raped in the showers, but now they give them a chem
solution that prevents an erection, so no worries really... It's sort of an empty consequence that just breeds more criminal behavior because all they
have to do inside is learn from each other better methods of crime
There are penal bootcamps in the US which have had great success in transforming delinquents lives.
They are prisons, but based on marine/army basic training on steroids! Obviously there is no weapons training, but fitness and total discapline is
enforced in much the same lines as a british military prison, where you are up at 5am, on parade by 5.30am for inspection, then PT, group punishment
for individual discapline infringements, having to ask permission even to go to the toilet, military drill etc.
They have to make the grade and "graduate" the program, and those who continue to be an asswipe end up doing the program again, getting kept back
until they do.
This is what I think is needed with young offenders with a chip on their shoulder. They soon learn discapline and self control, and when they are not
being beasted on a run or parade ground, they are having classes on how to conduct their lives, numeracy and literacy what they missed by being asses
You dont graduate the program, you dont go home.. Then after care at home too.. If the parents are morons then they get to do the program
