This is a hopeful but complicated era for those with ambitions to reform the juvenile courts and youth-serving public institutions in the United States. As advocates plea for major reforms, many fear the public backlash in making dramatic changes. Choosing the Future for American Juvenile Justice provides a look at the recent trends in juvenile justice as well as suggestions for reforms and policy changes in the future. Should youth be treated as adults when they break the law? How can youth be deterred from crime? What factors should be considered in how youth are punished?What role should the police have in schools? This essential volume, edited by two of the leading scholars on juvenile justice, and with contributors who are among the key experts on each issue, the volume focuses on the most pressing issues of the day: the impact of neuroscience on our understanding of brain development and subsequent sentencing, the relationship of schools and the police, the issue of the school-to-prison pipeline, the impact of immigration, the privacy of juvenile records, and the need for national policies—including registration requirements--for juvenile sex offenders. Choosing the Future for American Juvenile Justice is not only a timely collection, based on the most current research, but also a forward-thinking volume that anticipates the needs for substantive and future changes in juvenile justice.

Prosecution for Treason

The Constitution defines treason as levying war against the United States, by persons who hold allegiance to the US, in other words all Americans. This author argues that violence committed against citizens by anyone who wages weather warfare (she assumes Hurricane Katrina is an example) or who sets epidemics in motion (by laboratory-created diseases such as AIDS) should be prosecuted for the crime of treason. As for the violent MK-Ultra techniques, to which thousands of children were subjected, and which Congress revealed in 1975, how is it that all the perpetrators escaped punishment? They would be properly designated not as Dr Strangelove's but as traitors. The law is clear on this.
