The person I chosen to talk about is Dr. Paul Fauteck. At a young age he was doing small petty crimes and cutting quitting school. He has been caught stealing, theft and burglary. One of his crime friends was shot and killed by police at age 18. Finally he was busted with counterfeit checks and that sent him to a federal prison.
Therefore, not trying juveniles as adults will or possibly can lead them to committing other minor or major crimes. Two juveniles who have been tried as an adult would be Nathaniel Brazill who killed his teacher at the age of 13. Brazill got his GED and his law & paralegal certifications in jail. Similarly, Greg Ousley who killed his parents at the age of 14 is serving 60 years behind bars. According to Anderson, he is a model inmate, he is trustworthy behaving himself in prison and getting his education behind bars; got his bachelor's degree in liberal arts.
I have chosen cases Gideon v. Wainwright and Miranda v. Arizona Podcast to expand on. In the case Gideon v. Wainwright, Clarance Earl Gideon was a man that didn’t have a very long education, he went until eighth grade and then ran away from home while in middle school. All of his early adult life he spent going in and out of prisons for crimes that weren’t even considered violent. Clarance was then accused of breaking and entering, stealing money out of the vending machines in Panama City, Florida. In his trial, Mr. Gideon requested that an attorney be appointed to him seeing as he could not afford one, the judge of his trial then told him attorneys only get provided for those whose cases would result in the death penalty if they were to be
My understanding of Coming into Language “Coming into Language” is a book by Jimmy Santiago Baca, that talks about the struggles he had to face as a young illiterate Hispanic male. As a “Chicano”, he had to deal with prejudice from an early life and as a result, had frequent run-ins with the police. At the age of seventeen he was arrested as a murder suspect because he refused to explain how he got a gash on his arm. While he is in prison, awaiting trial, he listens to other prisoners reading out loud and that is when he starts appreciating written language. Two years later, he is again behind the bars facing drug charges and a million-dollar bail.
He has “an overpowering desire to break free from himself and dive into the flow” and not be conscious about where he is from (p. 296). Cedric Jennings is the main subject through whose eyes we see the struggle to get a good education. His story begins in Ballou High School in the black ghetto of southeast Washington D.C. Cedric is the youngest child of Barbara Jennings and Cedric Gilliam, a drug dealer who has spent a good part of his life in jail. Barbara and Cedric live in poverty, moving from one place to another. Barbara is a single parent and vows to keep her son off the streets by getting him involved in church and his
Both Bonnie and Clyde were stuck with tough lives to live from the very start. They grew up in the state of Texas, in and around Dallas, and their families were both in poverty. Both of them had jobs since they were around 13 years old; Bonnie waitressed in restaurants and Clyde worked in factories. Clyde also stole cars and resold them, and that was the start of his lengthy criminal record. He was constantly taken from his job by the police and questioned, but not usually arrested, and that aggravated his employers.
Surviving his environment, David grew into the neighborhood tough guy. No one could tell David anything on the in his town, he was the man in charge.

One of the first villains that Spider-Man had to fight was William Baker or Sandman. William Baker had a rough childhood and grew up in a bad neighborhood in New York. Williams father left him when he was a young boy, and it led William into a life of bad decisions and hate. William was one of the most successful criminals in New York, but one day he was caught and sent to prison. William escaped from prison and hid near an atomic testing site on the beach.
Another example of how the cops will harass the poor is “‘What do you know? Did the cops ever break down your door at two in the morning?’... ‘They broke down the door and started beating the carp out of everyone. Even my mother’”. I conveyed this by adding the police car speeding past and not helping Alonso and his family. Useful Fools by C.A Schmid is about a 15 year old boy named Alonso.
