    Dustin:

    Thats a given buddy...perpetrators are almost always looked out for in this assbackwards society so their rights are not violated.

    You can't tell me ( or you, I'd wager ) that the people in the perp's social circle couldn't tell that girl wasn't wrapped right before she did what she did...

      @Howie: You'd wager correctly!

      It's fairly obvious to myself, the individuals in that girl's life were pulling a 'Julie Baumeister'. Sociopathologies of that nature, don't just pop up overnight.

        Makes you wonder how long that girl was capable of an act like that....maybe she felt that way for years ,but it took as long as it did simply for her courage to catch up with her convictions.

          Well, they tried Thorn Cross in the late 90's Jon, and the consensus seemed to be that it worked in the majority of cases with a drop in the re-offending rate of over 20%, but it was never expanded on, and to be honest, the majority of offenders sent there seemed to be in the upper age youth bracket more towards 21. Also, it was still a young offenders institute and run by the prison service rather than the army.
          All the inspections were positive and it certainly didn't have the record some YOI's had for suicide or self harm among young offenders and it was excellent in working with marginalised groups of society.

            I'm thinking of the ones they tried in the early to mid 80's (I think). I'd never come across Thorn Cross before!

              You sure it was the UK Jon? As Thorn Cross was the first of its kind and was a Home Office / Probation Service pilot, it was only the NIMBY's that were opposed to it, because of the day release scheme which p*ssed off the local villagers. We had the Borstal System still ongoing in the early 80's but that was tagged a "short sharp shock" but they weren't particularly militarily run.

                I'm sure it was 80's UK. One of my uni lecturers said she did research into the reoffending rate. I think they were meant to emulate National Service. I'll have to see if I can dig out the details from last year.

                        If you read the you tube comments on a Beatles, Stones, Kinks etc song, it's full of ageing rebels saying "they don't make music like this any more."
                        And then there's that old song "Kids" :

                        Why can't they be like we were, perfect in every way?
                        Oh what's the matter with kids today?

                        Nevertheless all that said I feel there has been an alarming drop in standards of morality and self-discipline, and even (despite all the GCSEs and A levels and degrees) in intelligence. People today must be the thickest since Australopithecus.
