    • Dear, Ajalyn

      I am a little angry about this article, “Juvenile Justice” because… I feel like they are being racist.
      One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “ When my brother was 15 years old, he got sentenced to 32 years in prison for slapping an old white women on camera” I think this is messed up because… I understand he did something wrong and they got evidence , but a slap in the face on camera is not a 32 year crime not even a one year crime i think he need like 3 months not 32 years.

      Another sentence that I really didn’t like was: “I researched another story where this caucasian 17 year old girl poisoned her parents every night at dinner, for 3 months until they died, and she was only sentenced to 5 years in prison.” This stood out for me because… It’s just unbelievable, How did this White girl poisoned her parents for 3 months till they died and they only gave her 5 years , it just doesn’t add up.

      I don’t agree with the first case because it’s just plain stupid that somebody got 32 years … One reason I say this is because there’s people out here killing people kidnapping kids , and this 15 year old boy got sentenced 32 years for slapping a white lady on camera ,I think he only got 32 years because he’s probably black or hispanic , and the lady white so obviously they going to be racist and violate his sentence .

      I Disagree with the other case to , because that white girl has white privilege, How you poisoned your parents for 3 months till they die and the judge only gave her 5 years ? its because she’s white, i disagree with her sentence , she need life in there because she killed the people that brung her into this world, they only gave her 5 years but gave an african american boy or hispanic boy 32 years for slapping a somebody on camera ? i find the judge’s decision racist..

      Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because… I feel your pain on your brothers case #FREEHIM #HESINNOCENT
