Yeah, whatever happened to the juvie records being, sealed by the courts??? Oh wait, that did not happen, not here, which makes it even harder, for these young teenagers to turn over a new leaf in their own lives, off of the Front Page Sections, translated…
“You are a SCREW UP all the same”, the Disciplinary Official from My School Called Me to Talk…in the End, He’d Made up the Lies of Me Having a Mental Disorder, and, Kicked Me out of School
The fourteen-year-old “Snow” dropped out at age fourteen, and started wandering the streets, and, unknowingly, she’d taken a ketamine cigarette from her friend, and was sentenced to juvenile detention for six months, and, after her release, she’d returned back to school, and the school official insulted her, and expelled her, she’d felt loss for two whole years. The following is her own words on the experience”
That autumn, after my release from juvenile detention, I’d never broken the laws again, entered into a private technical high school to study. The head disciplinary official asked me why I was two months late in, I’d told him the truth, told them that I’d once, broken the law.
And, my honesty got me discriminated by the school! Every day the officials in school forced me to give the urine samples, and because I was cleaned, they couldn’t test anything out from it. But, every urine test for me was humiliation, and, the disciplinary official would always look at me questioningly, like I’d “cheated” in giving my urine samples, that’s why my tests showed negative for illegal substances.
The school official even used the dyes into the toilet waters, to prevent me from scooping up the water in the toilet to turn in as my sample. Can’t believe they’d thought up of that, but I really, didn’t use any substances!
“You’d been taken into custody, you’re a bad seed, who will believe you!”, the disciplinary official always picked on me, and had, insulted me like so often. In the end, the school lied that I had a mental condition, and forced me out.
I’d worked so hard, to get back into the technical high schools, and this was what I got in return. Paid my tuitions, told the truth, but nobody was tolerant, nobody accepted me with my bad past. I was defeated, and started getting drunk at the karaoke with my friends everyday now.
Later, as my mother encouraged me, I’d signed up for another technical high school. And this time, I’d learned better, never told the school the truths of my past, instead I’d kept my priors hidden, and so, they’d not given me a hard time, and I was able to get back into school again, and my life is, back on, track.
If I can return back to six years ago, I wouldn’t have broken the law, nor dropped out of school, instead, I’d followed my original smoother path, and study hard, and maybe, I would have had the chance of getting into a better high school, and university, and maybe, I wouldn’t have bump into, so many hardships of my life, maybe, maybe, there would be no need for detours in my adolescence, maybe………
What these kids need, are a brand new fresh start, a second chance at their lives, and yet, because of their priors on record, despite how they were still minors, and those juvie records should’ve been sealed by the courts, their pasts became out in the open, and the school officials discriminated them, labeled them as bad seeds, and they don’t get a chance to start their lives anew, and, this young lady was one of the luckier ones, because at LEAST she’d found herself back on the right tracks of life, and learned the lessons her pasts had taught her, and, there are many more teens like her, not as lucky as she.
