    That a great example you're setting there, Your Dishonors. Have fun in the pen. Hope you two didn't have plans for your pensions, because you won't get 'em.


    Scheme started in 2003 and over 5,000 kids have been sent to the farm by Ciavarella.

    I think they should dust off the stockades for these guys.

    How much did it cost taxpayers to have all of these utes jailed?

    Judging by the bribes, a pretty penny, I'll wager.

    So is this an example of corrupt liberals throwing money at a problem or law-and-order conservatives promoting both capitalism and a hard line on juvy crime?

    I'm confused.

    And allow the teens to throw some rotten tomatos at them.

    These judges better be pretty careful in jail. They might run into some of the people that they imposed sentences on.

    I'm sure they'll be kept well away from the general population for that very reason.

    The girl described in the lead will never get those three months back.

    That's unbelievable. It sounds like a Law & Order episode or something.

    The story explained it a bit, but I'd be interested to know how the judges were busted.

    That's the unfortunate thing. Maybe some of the guards will 'forget' to keep them in custody for a while.

    Good point. If they had allowed the government to run the jails, they wouldn't do near as good a job of locking up every teen in town and certainly wouldn't have the money to bribe judges to keep the kid train coming.
