European Council Decries Corruption in Austria
18 December 2008
The Group of States against Corruption (GRECO) said December 19 that corruption was common in Austria and legal measures against it were still in the early stages, according to a spokesman and a report presented in Strasbourg. In the construction business, in political life and in public administration, such practices were common occurrences, said a spokesman for GRECO, which was founded by the Council of Europe.
12th least corrupt country in the world?
Those fuckers have no idea.
They just do not understand how we roll-
Imprisoning kids for money however is not how we roll.
I live in this area, and the problem was them funneling kids into these programs due to bribes, not whether they were innocent or had excessively harsh sentences. No where did I see anything about unfair imprisonment.
That being said, many juveniles are total scumbags. A good friend works at one of these bad boys juvenile detention places and some of these kids are very hard core offenders. Sex offenders, murderers, robbery, etc. the kids are grouped in different areas with what they did and what they need.
Don’t believe everything you read in the paper, especially once the news filters out to the national or international media.
"The high court, meanwhile, is looking into whether hundreds or even thousands of sentences should be overturned and the juveniles? records expunged.
Among the offenders were teenagers who were locked up for months for stealing loose change from cars, writing a prank note and possessing drug paraphernalia. Many had never been in trouble before. Some were imprisoned even after probation officers recommended against it. "
Did you even read the article?
I live in Scranton, and the article is complete bull. Didn’t you learn anything about msnbc from the elections. Not trying to sound condescending.
It is trying to build empathy for many of the teenagers, wilkes barre has turned into a drug infested and wanna be gang members crap hole.
Yep, like the other guy said, there is plenty of corruption, but the question of whether or not these kids did this has not been raised. From knowing people who work with juveniles in the detention system, very few are good kids.
