    On kids and parents

    Today's conversation about parenting really made me think. I really think it all starts at home. Parents need to raise their kids right and we might not have so many problems. They can only do so much when they get to a certain age, but if they are raised right in a loving family, I really believe they will know the things that are really pushing the limits!

    amy -- but what happens when kids are having kids? then what?

    Beaucracy in the school system can get quite rediculous, but, the rules exist because without concrete rules, there would be chaos. I wanted to say more on this in class but we ran out of time. I have a lot written more on this in my journal.

    paul -- which theory from the arrigo book applies to this? why.

    i have attended rci and ryoc and i would like to attend ellsworth if possible. I also wanted to say that parents should have responsbility for their kids but they shouldnt go to jail for it because kids are devious and they find ways to cause trouble. Blaming the parents is an easy target and possibly should be but we need to point fingers elsewher~peer pressure can kill.

    sammy -- want to research this issue as a creative measure?

    On the documentary, "Hispanic and African Americans: Friends or Foes?"

    In response to todays video on A.A. and Hispanics. One of the ladies in the movie said that if both groups just sat down and talked they might realize how interesting one another can be and see how two different cultures can be very similiar. Sitting down and talking is exactly what the peacemaking theory says, so I connected the movie with that theory.

    katie -- yes, that thought on applying peacemaking crim also crossed my mind when i heard her say that.

    I never realized there was such friction between Hispanic and African Americans as depicted in the video. The video was interesting and thought-provoking while providing insights about two competing minority groups.

    jason -- which theory from the arrigo best applies here? why.

    There is definitely "strength in numbers". If African Americans and Hispanics would unify together as one force, White American would be forced to listen and act to our issues/demands. I believe that they do like us fighting amongst each other, which only weakens us. The peacemaking theory would apply to this situation.

    april -- based on the situation and issues presented in this documentary, what would be the first step in peacemaking crim as pepinsky envisions? why.

    On sex offender photos on front page

    i just wanted to say how i was appaled at the reaction of the class tothe reading of the article you presented in class today!!!! More people should be aware of the ramification of sex offenders. Yes they have paid their debt to society but what about the victims????? why have they been forgotten. it's easy for offenders to move and start a new life but that victim will be forever scared. Look at it from a victims point of view, they may have lost their job or torn their family apart, mental issues health issues and so on while this offender have moved away and forgotten about his past. it's a very sensitive topic but i support to front page awareness that the newpaper did to enlighten the community. This could be a deterrent for future offenders, IT WILL FOLLOW YOU WHEREVER YOU GO!!!!!!!

    kevyn -- want to research this issue further? is there a point when the offender has paid his/her dues to society? why or why not.

    On sex offenders photos on the front page

    I would like to comment on our discussion about sex offenders pictures in the newspapers: I think there should be a statute of limitations for public notice of these offenses, say 10 years, then it should not be published. Since the guy lost his job, I have to raise the question to weather or not the guy lied on his employment application to having a felony? Now the last issue is "passion of the victims", this guy wouldn't have to ever worry about finding a job if his sex crime touched my family. Is my "balanced" view appropriate? Thanks.

    jeff -- this is a complicated issue with no simple solutions. this issue can be examined from multiple perspectives.
