According to its website, Justice for Juveniles is:
a grass roots group of concerned parents, grandparents, teachers, scholars, internet professionals, legal professionals and many others dedicated to ending the prosecution and adjudication of children as adults.
The goal of our organization is to inform and inspire other citizens to get involved in the effort to bring about these changes -- always keeping in mind that children are never adults. We join with other advocate groups to use a global, national, and local approach to bringing American juvenile justice into line with other international child rights standards.
Community support, redirection, diversion, and treatment are the foundation of our policy goals.
Please join us as we join others, in changing the political tide that encourages state sanctioned child abuse.
I found this post, which encourages letter writing, to be particularly fascinating:
Thomas will have a hearing in June to decide if this will go back to juvenile or not. It may fall on deaf ears but we have to try to help this child.he was only 13 when he brought guns to school. He is a bullied child like eric and his father is a convicted felon. He also is receiving NO SCHOOLING. You can look on articles that have been written for more info. I don't know how to send a copy of our letters to the prosecutor though I don't have an address for him, I can't find anything. Thanks.
Let me think about this. Is it possible Thomas Gregory White is receiving no schooling because he brought a gun to school and attempted to kill his principal and would likely have been successful had his gun not jammed?
That kind of action would make anyone think twice about offering White any schooling.
