Alienating Our Youth

By | May 12, 2005

Chris Frappier, investigator with Vermont’s state public defender’s office…

“So our kids, our children, who feel lost, disenfranchised—they join gangs! And why not? I mean, look at the communities in this state that wage war on kids. We kick them out of our parks, we ban them from skateboarding…What I’m seeing in recent years it the total and complete alienation of our youth. And it is not coming from them; it is coming from adults who are not bothering to reach out to them…And that is terrifying.” Quoted from “Hurt” by Chap Clark.
