Respond to this statement include at least on question in response:

Yes, i believe in the effectiveness of juvenile boot camps and scared straight programs as effective in deterring crimes. the purpose of a boot camp is to strip a person of selfish and bad behaviors and qualities and then to rebuild the individual through repetitive daily drills, school and physical activity.  no ones physically harming a child there teaching them to be productive and to follow the rules and for a problem child thats not a bad deal as compared to going to jail.

Scarred straight programs where they take a juvenile into an adult correctional facility i see it as a good thing too some kids think jail isn’t anything! and i guess by showing them first hand that it’s not a world for children by intimidation and empty threats, Hey what ever you have to do to keep a child from going to jail I’m Okay with it.
