The Patriot-News reports that "one of the state's best juvenile detention centers slammed into hard times recently. Overcrowding, staff problems, admissions policies and some remorseless, violent youths contributed to a climate of fear. The center epitomizes the problems facing the entire state juvenile justice system. Some politicians want tougher penalties for the youths, but experts warn that is no panacea. And the juveniles themselves know how to work the troubled system. Some of the state's own policies were driving the problems in the system."
