Simply, beautiful and eloquent Jack. I'm sure Jane would approve.

Re: “Saturday's Cyntoia Brown Panel: Me Facing Life ... And a Couple of Oddball Questions

To Jim In Nashville: The only thing you've said that seems credible is "I could, literally, go on for hours with hypotheses and questions".

Yes, I believe you can and do.

The article and the film simply raise the question whether or not it is fair, prudent or just to hold children to the same standards as adults and by *presuming* that rehabilitation is impossible. Neither the article nor the film were about Johnny Allen or whether or not he was virtuous or sinister. There could never be justification for what happened to him and neither Brantley Hargrove nor Dan Birman (the film's director) attempted to do either.

It seems the axe you grind renders you prisoner of your own grievances and incapable of entertaining information outside your entrenched position of judgment. Often the root of righteous anger is some invisible woundedness that renders one incapable of reading words on a page without imposing our own biases. In this case, the very bias you accuse Mr. Hargrove of possessing. Yeah, this seems to be one of the 'you spot it you got it' situations.
