KIDS FOR CASH

In 2008 something frightening was going on in Luzerne County Pennsylvania.  Judge Ciavarella were convicted of accepting money from private builders to keep the institution full.  These kids that appeared before the bench, were adjudicated swiftly and moved out of their homes, school, and neighborhoods while being placed in centers that focuses on punishment rather than education.  These kids were not criminals but the system will make them criminals if they are not careful.  There is no reason whatsoever these kids were incarcerated, but in turn it  directly lead us to our overcrowding issues in present day.
