Robert Ehrlich on Crime
Former Republican MD Governor; previously Representative (MD-2)
Robert Ehrlich, knowing his constituency, condemns the moratorium. Kathleen Kennedy Townsend, a backer of the death penalty but one who knows her own constituency, calls the moratorium a small price to pay while we wait for advice on fairness.
Ehrlich said he was nearing completion of a policy proposal for the state’s juvenile justice system. For some less-violent young offenders, “boot camps are the right solution,” Ehrlich said. “Our proposal will have a boot-camp component.”
Such programs have effectively prevented teens from committing additional crimes in other places, Ehrlich said. He said the camps could work if mental-health treatment and follow-up care components were bolstered. “Other states are getting results,” he said, mentioning Florida as an example.
Maryland operated three juvenile boot camps in Allegany County from 1996 until 1999, when the facilities were closed after The Sun published articles describing repeated beatings and violence by guards against young criminals.
