A&E has a new series that starts tonight at 10/9 central. It is called Beyond Scared Straight and takes kids who act like "stone cold killers" and puts them in jail with real stone cold killers. it is supposed to go beyond the scared straight one day programs to help change the lives of kids headed down the wrong path.
I have mixed feelings about this. I can see that it might help some kids, esp if there is some type of support once the program ends. OTOH, do these kids need any help learning about criminal life?
I wondered what all of you thought about this? Is it something that you would watch? Would you consider it if you had a child going down that path?
