Comments on Bill

Jann Coulson wrote on 1 month ago

It has been an embarrassment that prosecutors have failed to follow the commonsense approach to limiting the use of adult felony convictions for someone who had demonstrated a lack of maturity rather than serious criminal intent, supporting a system where they are tracked into detention with adults (often with serious health, mental health and legal issues) where they are at special risk to be assaulted, bullied and terrified until they are well on track to do more damage. Missouri used to have a reputation for being a leading light in the area of juvenile justice, but now we are turning abused children into adult felons. I am hopeful that this will be funded even though I suspect there is a certain amount of blackmail by prosecutors involved in this. We are so unkind to children in this nation and state.
