    On "Thug Life in D.C."

    I wanted to tell you that the movie "Thug Life" was very interesting and it showed us how the young prisoners are torn between good and bad.

    frank -- can you provide an example from the documentary that was most vivid for you?

    On Maurice Horton's lecture

    I really enjoyed the speaker that Bettie brought in today. He was very informative and passionate on what he does to help our youth. Plus he added the media coverage that they receive and have personally dealt with. It also ties in along with the juvenile justice topic that we discussed in class.

    veronica -- i'm glad you enjoyed today's speaker.

    On Maurice Horton's lecture

    i enjoyed the guest speakers today. The main man gave us knowledgeable and important information about the program and how street knowledge is important to the job when dealing with the juveniles. It was amazing though that 90% of the parents offenders are incarcerated.

    tony -- yes, he did present a variety of statistics during his presentation.

    On Maurice Horton's lecture

    I thoroughly enjoyed today's guest speakers coming in and making the class aware of their efforts to help juveniles. I commend Maurice, Tanya, Mike, and all of the others whom are taking the time to help get these individuals on the right track. Thank you for having them come in.

    ryan -- you're very welcome, but you really need to thank bettie for making the arrangements.

    On two book reviews

    Here are the book reviews: Cowdery, Nicholas. ^”Getting Justice Wrong: Myths, Media and Crime.^‘ ^”Getting Justice Wrong,^‘ offers solutions for crime and social related problems. The author covers such topics as corrupt cops, crime waves, the get tough on crime policies, drug problems, and the relationship between media and crime. O^“Reilly, Bill. ^”Who^“s Looking Out For You?^‘ In this compelling and personal book, Bill O^“Reilly raises issues toward his targeted audience and readers, who, themselves, are striving to fulfill a life of happiness. O^“Reilly gets very personal, questioning those whom you associate with in life. He also questions if the media, justice system, celebrities, church, government, and politicians are really looking out for your best interests. This book confronts some of the prevalent problems in our world. O^“Reilly bases his book on knowledge, experience, and sanity.

    stephen -- thank you. i will put them on the commentaries page until i can start a book reviews page for the class.

    On Holes

    I think that Holes was an excellent book for our class to read this semester. I brought about a lot of thought about theory, policy, practice and the needs of inmates considerded to be special populations such as jueviniles.

    chase -- we will be discussing the "theory, policy and practice" implications of this book.
