"Arkansas still locks up more children than most states," Arkansas seizes and places children in foster care per capita than most states as well, where is the concern for these children?

And Arkansas sets free some VERY dangerous youths!
lil Boosie.........when he first got in trouble a judge said he saw redeeming qualities in him.

After he did a few armed robberies and pistol whipped his victims, another judge thought a VERBAL 5 pm curfew would protect the public from him.

Luckily no cops lost their life during lil Boosi's final confrontation with law enforcement.
