We have the world largest prison population, each working for $1.5 per a hour (suck on that China). It is cheaper to own a prisoner than a slave. I strongly suggest owning prisoners (buying stocks of prison corporations) specially if there is any chance of you may ending up in one in future. According to prison guards union, growing prison population is vital to our economy since it keep the national unemployment rate down and they successfully lobby for tougher laws and harsher punishments....

We already had situations prison corporations encouraging judges to send minors to jail, prosecutors been enthusiastic about institutionalizing minors (Cash for Kids). Kids are more profitable.

As a black Man born in US of America I made it a point to always read over and over and over the 13th amendment of the US Constitution . Slavery never went away for Black People or anyone else for that matter!

You are absolutely correct...the "legal" system in the United States is corrupt and morally bankrupt.

P.S. I didn't find the interview in The Sun, but it was Michelle Alexander that was being interviewed so we can read directly from her article.
If you like interviews, The Sun magazine has a new one every issue (once a month). And it is ad free. So they don't have to worry about offending their sponsors.

We send our boys over to kill. We make our money off selling weapons both here and abroad and now we have a new business: jail young men for smoking a little pot (which has a dubious history for why it is illegal, to begin with); the judges, lawyers, guards, police all get to make money while many are afraid to even jaywalk. SAD . . . but true.

Thie 12 years old boy,sure is not an criminal. He has been abuse by an adult, caring baybies is not his duty,ia an adult duty, his mother,or father.

well if u live in the ghetto of have seen City of GOd. kids can learn to kill at a young age and do it for life. I am not familiar with this story, but am familiar with the floridia case of lioinal tate. Who killed the girl. its hard without having all facts but some , and for fact he called his mother or what or how he reacted to tht calling, or how he confessed.. I don't have acharacter file in this kid. on both ends u have to know what ur dealing with not be naïve and not be to judgemental...

punishing or jailing him is the right judgment for that child. he's still a child having not enough knowledge as adults do and sometimes even adults do wrongs. he must be help to correct the wrong he has done and i'm sure he is willing to reform and grow-up to be a good man. don't judge him now yet. Gov. Scott must consider his decision and take for granted that that boy is his son or grandson, what would he feel? don't give him that harsh punishment, pls. give him a chance to prove himself...

NO child should be babysitting unless over yjr age of 17yrs. old because; there are so many things like this one could go wrong. This child is not capable nor have the capacity to be able to take care of one more chii;lren, so much danger can happen that they are not capable to stop or know how to prevent.

Mother should be held fully responsible, very careless, abuse, neglect on her part; by No means should this child be held RESPONSIBLE! He is tortured due to putting him in this predicament he cannot understand, or comprehend. Now losing his brother now he will feel is his FAULT. It's NOT! Feel Guilty, blame himself, It's NOT! Mother's FAULT!

Florida as a State is absolutely lacking in the justice department! Trust me I have experienced it for my self, There is No justice in the so called JUSTICE SYSTEM here. And some of these prosecuters are just disgusting human beings I have no idea how they even sleep at night of live with themselves other than they have no conscience at all! Shame on them they will all burn in Hell!

Why was this child forced into babysitting all thaes children and why wasnt the mother prosecuted for child neglect? This child did not react differently than any child would react when stressed to this degree! What is wrong with you people! Charge the stupid mother but not his 12 yr old child!

This is indeed tragic, however; after reading that Cristian confessed to sexually abusing a younger child in his home, I really can't jump on the "defenc Cristian" bandwagon. If you go here: http://www.news4jax.com/news/Sexual-assault-charge-dropped-against-Cristian-Fernandez/-/475880/17328946/-/format/rsss_2.0/-/khkcljz/-/index.html there is a link to the PDF file w/his confession in it. Sorry folks

This has happened one time before with a child. This one was charged with first degree murder. He had been watching a wrestling match where the one who was the bad wrestler used a pile driver on the other. Well the boy was with a friend or his brother wrestling and did the same thing not knowing the consequences of his actions. The boy of course died where the wrestler did not die. They found him guilty and sentenced him to life in prison. No one cared to speak for him. That boy is lost in...

AND THIS BOY ( CHRISTIAN ) WAS THROWN INTO THE ROLE OF AN ADULT WITH NO SAY IN IT AT ALL , AND NEGLECTED BY HIS OWN MOTHER , WHICH IS ABUSE !!! AND THEN PROSECUTED WHEN HE...
