Let me tell you that the majority of you are dismissing the fact that some of these kids have mental health issues and emotional disturbances that school administrators and the police DO NOT know how to deal with. Instead of prevention, they send them to juvenile justice, where more problems occur. Schools have the ability to identify any issues if they put forth the effort. Not once does a school administrator or teacher make an attempt to see what the child's home environment is like, whether or not the child is a victim of sexual and physical abuse in his or her home, whether or not he or she has food to eat, etc. I am a clinician, who does intensive in-home therapy, and I see these things happening everyday. WAKE UP!!! Help children be successful instead of being another number or statistic within the auspices of the juvenile justice system!!!
