    A Scared Straight progam is badly needed in Essex County. I have two young boys that I have taken in since they were very young and now one is 13 the other is 16 and I am having nothing but trouble with them. They need to see the reality of jail life, I tried sitting them down to the tv show on A&E but it seemed to have little effect. There are many other boys here in Gloucester that would also benefit from such a program.

If they (the men) were properly diagnosed and received proper treatment maybe then their cycle of addiction and crime would end. Many many people, women and men are using drugs to self medicate. Prison is not the answer. Too many are there and should NOT be.
