WOW! This judge needs to be in Chicago! She could single-handedly reduce the murder rate by half! This is an amazing message everyone should listen to. Bravo, judge, bravo!
You have probably seen videos of “scared straight” programs across the country where troubled teens are given tours of jails and speak to hardened criminals in an effort to scare them away from a life of crime.
One of the most difficult aspects of the job for people who work in the justice system has to be all the young kids they see walking through the doors of courtrooms.
Often times, these kids have no one to look up to and no stabilizing force in their lives.
Enter Bibb County Superior Court Judge Verda Colvin who delivered some serious truth in her courtroom that is now spreading across the internet.
Now the only question is whether or not these kids listened.
Let’s pray they did and you have got to give a lot of respect to this judge who hopefully will inspire even more of her peers to issue warnings like this.
