    What mechanism ensures that the person who committed a crime will actually utilize the new approach? Question: if the new program diverts the offender from the legal system how can they be expected to utilize community resources, etc if they are not conficted of the crime? I believe the core problem with youth and crime is that the responsible adult(s) are failing to properly care (with love) and control their children. The problem is the parent not doing their job. Regarding racial inequities, that is directly related to white adults with power being allowed to exercise their personal bigotry and racism. I assume with extreme hope that profiling is against policy but that doesn’t matter because profiling absolutely occurs. How many ignorant and/or racist whites have I heard say that they believe that black people commit crimes as part of their culture and at a higher amount then non-blacks? Countless times here in the open minded Northwest. I don’t see how the proposed program will address the real reasons for the racial inequities - the adults with power and control.
