the longer this series goes on... the more and more bias the narrator gets. Season 1 was goodish. you could tell which way she leaned early on... now, she just straight up defends every criminal! this episode she asks did any adult know where you were after you were taken into custody? the answer was No. but that is a complete lie. he was taken into custody FROM HIS BED AT HIS HOUSE. there were no parents there? his parents knew exactly where he was. just tell the story and let the listen decide what the truth is. quit being so biased!

If Joshua goes to the Adult Unit then he will have to face those guys he snitched on in there. Thats probably what he is really worried about.

if you listen closely when she talks to Josh, you can hear the world's smallest violin playing the world's saddest song, just for him.

These are the consequences of being about that life. No excuses about having to join a gang to survive yada yada fuck that there's always another way. Joshua sounds like a career scumbag well on his way to an early grave and I am supposed to have sympathy?

Denise Rini was one of the best judges in the juvenile court. The best results I saw from abuse/neglect cases came from her because she grew up as an orphan so she was able to use herself as an example to the kids that were getting sent to permanent placements away from their parents. She was a great judge. But she was also a Republican in a very Democratic city. So she got elected out just because of her party even though she was objectively one of the most effective judges they has because of her personal experience.

Hard to have any sympathy for a guy (Joshua) who's committing armed robberies at age 16, but I think he got shafted by the Feds. Once they shook him down for intel on the gang, they knew he'd be targeted for being a snitch and the least they could have done is have him put in a juvenile facility away from his hometown and his former gang buddies. But hey, waddaya gonna do? 🤷‍♂️
