Here are the rules: 1 - Please remember the victim(s) first and foremost. Do not come here to comment only on the offender(s). My blog focuses on the victim(s). Do not glorify the killer(s). No negative comments about the victim. NO VICTIM BLAMING. 2 - I will not tolerate hate filled speech, vulgar or derogatory remarks about a victim. I will remove comments that go against this. I will not remove comments just because they do not match my beliefs, in fact, I welcome them! However, that being said, I will remove those that I find offensive, argumentative just for the sake of starting an argument that does not add to the post, hate-filled speech, etc. 3-No comments in ALL CAPS, or CoMeNtS. They are rude and difficult to read. I have had many complaints about it so no more. 4-Comments must be in English only and easy to read (meaning no text language, shortening words, etc.). Have respect for those who don't do text messaging or other lingo. 5 - ALL COMMENTS LEFT BY COMMENTORS ARE THEIR OWN AND THEIR OPINIONS. THEY DO NOT CONSTITUTE FACTS.

“CRIME WATCH DAILY” INVESTIGATES ATLANTA’S “CONSIDER THE CONSEQUENCES” PROGRAM MADE FAMOUS BY JUDGE VERDA COLVIN

SCARED STRAIGHT
“CRIME WATCH DAILY” INVESTIGATES “CONSIDER THE CONSEQUENCES”

Caught on Tape: Terrified Children in a Program Praised for Preventing Juvenile Delinquency. Has it Gone Too Far?

LOS ANGELES, Calif. (May 25, 2016) — In a video gone viral, Judge Verda Colvin was praised everywhere for her tough love attitude on at-risk youth and her support of “Consider the Consequences,” a Bibb County, Georgia program aimed at preventing juvenile delinquency by sending kids behind bars. Now, Crime Watch Daily goes behind the scenes to show you what you didn’t see in court and the results are explosive. Crime Watch Daily sent a camera crew to get a first-hand look at what these kids experienced. Captured on camera are prisoners cursing and berating the children with one young girl repeatedly called a whore by inmates, girls ordered to clean the toilets of inmates without gloves, and children sharing cell blocks with murderers.

Crime Watch Daily sat down with Judge Colvin and Sheriff David Davis to watch this footage for the first time and both Sheriff Davis and Judge Colvin stood by the program with Judge Colvin even saying, “yes” when asked if these kids needed this treatment. “Overall, this is a good program. If there’s any type of adjustments that need to be made, we’ll certainly do it, but it doesn’t negate the good points of it and the impact that it’s making,” adds Sheriff Davis.

When Crime Watch Daily sent the footage to Bibb County, the program was put on hold and an internal investigation was launched. The program has since been altered and re-launched.

  1. Video will ALWAYS make any scene other than a birthday party seem as something bad is happening. The deterrence value is directly proportional to how unpleasant the experience is to the at risk kids.
