Within the Discussion Board area, write 400–600 words that respond to the following questions with your thoughts, ideas, and comments. This will be the foundation for future discussions by your classmates. Be substantive and clear, and use examples to reinforce your ideas:
- Should there be mandatory incarceration for chronic juvenile offenders? Why or why not?
- Remember, mandatory incarceration in this context refers to placement in a juvenile detention center, not a prison.
- Do you think that this would this help curb continuing maladaptive behavior? Why or why not?
- When do you think a court should be lenient toward a chronic juvenile offender? Explain.
