Raised by the courts

This book looked interesting. I was curious about what a judge in the juvenile system would have to say about kids and crime. I have to admit I only read about 5 pages or so. In the first chapter you are bombarded with opinions about how terrible the US justice system is compared to Europe. Irene Sullivan than gives you a cascade of statistics about juvenile incarcerations and how she has been giving an opportunity to not be harsh in her sentencing. Sullivan then mentions Senators Klobacher and Shumer, both known to be progressives that support social justice. Once the point of view of this book was made clear, I just couldn't go forward with it.

So no book rating as I didn't read much of it.

The books I select for review are books which I personally select from my local library. I do not receive any reimbursement from authors or publishers or free books. I do provide links to Amazon as a convenience to the readers of this blog. I do earn a small referral pittance which is not even enough to buy a soda.
