Churched-Up?

There is a great article by Gregory Kane today.  I admire his writings.  He's a DC-Baltimore guy and knows the street action fairly well.

Here in DC....we've got huge problems with punk kids....fourteen to nineteen years old....who can assault you in a train station or on the street.  They have no problem in bringing harm to folks.

What Kane writes in such great persuasive detail....is for the punks to get "churched-up".  As he points out in his youth....somewhere around 13 or 14....he got pointed off every summer for a couple of weeks of vacation Bible school.  You got this vast lesson in civil behavior and human understanding.  You may have hated everyday....but thirty years later......it still means something.

Churched-up?

Yep, dump the punks into a required and mandatory situation.  Make them sit there for six hours a day, five days a week and throughout the summer.  Put up a curfew and make them all return home by 10PM at night.
