They won't be rehabilitating themselves. Prison or a premature death is all they have to look forward to. And every one of them knows it. They individually made their choices, now they can live or die for their decisions.
as someone who works with troubled youth, i can say that these kids probably have a screwed up past, poor impulse control, and no positive role model in their life. if just one of those things is changed then those kids stand a chance. ive seen career criminals (younger than 18) turn their life around with some simple guidance. maybe the issue isnt the kids. maybe the parents should be the ones who are worked on here.
