By your logic, there should be NO teenagers that are in jail. Amirite?

    No - you are not right. But you do exhibit that standard type of binary thinking so prevalent on the political right which refuses to accept there are always more than two possibilities in complex subjects. The type of hospital that I'm speaking of would not be your standard hospital but rather a psychiatric institution which would confine the patient to one room with a locked door. The primary difference would be the psychiatric evaluation and examination of the incarcerated one.

    Erm.... are you trying to align me with the political right? OK.

    This girl is obviously extremely violent. That much is clear. So you want her singled out and placed in a psychiatric facility. Why her? What is so special about her? I live near Duval County, and this type of thing is commonplace. In fact, one could argue why the Judge didn't incarcerate her instead of leaving her to her mother.

    So what is so special about this girl that you think she deserves psychiatric treatment instead of incarceration? How does she stand head and shoulders above the rest of the violent teenagers in jail in Duval County?

    A large percentage of the population of incarcerated people have a clinically diagnosable mental health condition. IMO, they all should receive treatment. It would benefit all of us
