What can we expect of our youth when half of our fine, upstanding citizens are criminals of the worst order and the other half can't or won't do their jobs? I hope they get everything they deserve out of life. Those we children in the Texas juvenile justice system, beware. I'm off to write letters of disgust to our reigning officials. Appalling.
