The young boy was 10 years old and he stabbed a classmate. It was unknown what he used. He was placed in a holding tank waiting for his mother's arrival. But she was afraid to ask to get off early to tend to her child in fear of being fired. There is something very wrong with this picture.

Non-violent offenders are being put in with violent offenders only to pick up on their behavior while waiting for their orders to be placed elsewhere. This is creating more violent crimes instead of resolving any issues at hand when they are let out back into society.
