Youth Diversion Program

Feel free to move this as I'm unsure where it should go.

So basically as of yesterday, I was reinstated into the Youth Diversion Program. What's the Youth Diversion Program? It's a program ran by the government but not every state has it. Basically, when you are convicted of a misdemeanor as a youth (17 and younger) you do this program to "straighten out" and to get out of the trouble you're in. Upon completion all charges on your record will be dropped and you will be clean of any offenses.

This is my second time doing it but this time I have a lot more and I'm actually pretty pissed. I have to take 4 classes this time including one about gang prevention. Also I have 45 hours of community service as opposed to the usual 20-30. This is my last chance and if I get busted again I go to actual trial.

So long story short I was curious as to what you guys think of this program. Is it fair to give us another chance or two? Or should we just be punished fairly for a lesson learned. The reason I'm asking is because my Father and I got into a huge argument, he thinks I should be convicted and tried as a real adult. I personally believe in second chances.

But is this program a waste of time? I've seen some of the same faces as last time and obviously I haven't changed at all since. I'm grateful that I'll have a clean record but it really never changed me or had any effect on me for that matter. What think you?

I'm curious too, has anyone else heard of this program?

You shouldn't be tried as an adult because you're not an adult. Everyone deserves a second chance, unless you're a rapist. Screw rapists. Capital punishment is what they deserve, imo.

I've never heard of this program.

I think it's nice to give some youth a second or third chance, but to be fair it may depend on what someone's done. If its a minor crime then it seems pretty fair to give them another chance. It's really hard t determine whether it is completely good or completely bad though, because there are so many different situations.
Some kids might not be able to get out of gangs or crime, and/or are too intimidated to do so, so it seems fair for them to get another chance.

It could potentially be a waste of time on some youths, but not all of them. It could depend on the crime or how many offences a person has, I suppose.

Yeah see some people were affected last time but they were the pussies the ones who had never been in trouble and or were scared of being in trouble. This one kid was talking shit about cops and yada yada I'm a hardass all that shit, yet at the end of the program the very final stage where you speak with real convicts he broke down and was crying like crazy. This happened in all the classes last time, there was at least one person in each one who cried.

So I suppose it could work on some but to others who are constantly exposed to crime, violence and just don't give a **** it really is a waste of time.

There are no absolutes in life. Anyone can make changes in their life.

Is this up to the parents or is it forced? I think it should be up to the parent or guardian, I don't like how our government suddenly thinks it's ok to butt in on things. I'm sure it's a good program that could make a difference in some kids lives, though.

It's completely mandatory.

Even if it was up to the parent I'm almost positive that they'd elect to do the program rather then getting in serious legal trouble and having a record for the rest of their kids life.

I never heard of this before but I approve of it. I too believe that people (who have commited "petty" crimes, not anything like murder or rape) deserve second chances because people can, and often do change (for better or worse). I think it's great we've got something like this for the boys of our youth.

I think it is a good program, to try to straighten some kids out and get them on the right track. Having a clean slate is also good, so the kid can try again without any consequences following them. :3

My Psychology professor actually has classes like these, one for Shoplifting Prevention, where a convicted shoplifter (1st offense) can go to the class instead of being tried in court. She also helps people of all ages with drug abuse. I think this kind of stuff is needed, it could make a change in someone's life to have this kind of stuff available.

Yeah you're right, it can definitely bring good, but there's also a good bit of people like myself who honestly don't give a **** and they're wasting their time admittely.

I think it's a good program but I don't see the point in letting people in more than once ya know? Cause at the point it's like they obviously don't care.

But hey I'm not complaining lol, rather work and go to pointless classes then sit in a cell all day.
