“we are waiting and waiting and doing nothing, until it is too late, and they commit crimes so serious that all society wants to do is punish instead of rehabilitate.”
Edward Humes, No Matter How Loud I Shout: A Year in the Life of Juvenile Court

“Officially, he was no longer a victim, he was a criminal”
Edward Humes, No Matter How Loud I Shout: A Year in the Life of Juvenile Court

“Average household credit card debt topped the landmark of $10,000 in 2006, a hundredfold increase over the average consumer debt in the 1960s. One consequence: Much of the material buried in landfills in recent years was bought with those same credit cards, leading to the quintessentially American practice of consumers continuing to pay, sometimes for years, for purchases after they become trash.”
Edward Humes, Garbology: Our Dirty Love Affair with Trash
