Pipeline to trouble starts early

    Nice to see the police becoming more involved in not sending people especially kids to prison and actually want public funding to be put in the educational and social programs instead of trying to put more in public safety. Of course, it would be nice if cops knew more about the people in the communities that they patrol. Too many times, they only know someone from the rap sheet that is displayed on their computers in their cars.
