In an age when violence and crime by young people is again on the rise, No Matter How Loud I Shout offers a rare look inside the juvenile court system that deals with these children and the impact decisions made in the courts had on the rest of their lives. Weaving together a poignant, compelling narrative with razor-sharp investigative reporting, No Matter How Loud I Shout is a convincingly reported, profoundly disturbing discussion of the Los Angeles juvenile court’s failings, providing terrifying evidence of the system’s inability to slow juvenile crime or to make even a reasonable stab at rehabilitating troubled young offenders. Humes draws an alarming portrait of a judicial system in disarray.
That said, No Matter How Loud I Shout is very well-written, and it comes off like a series of stories rather than a simple piece of investigative journalism. This book’s style made it easy to read, even when the content made it a challenge.
Used this book for a class on the inadequacies of the juvenile legal system in rehabilitating youth. It was a wonderful book that gave a first hand description of going through the judicial system and incarceration of youth. 3 people found this helpful. I was not expecting to become so emotionally attached! This book is amazing but terribly sad. It sheds light on some of the glaring problems in the juvenile justice system.
The book begins by explaining that prior to the 1960s juvenile offenders were almost entirely at the mercy of the judge before which they appeared-they were not entitled to the same rights as adults. These conditions allowed an Arizona judge to sentence a teenager-without allowing him to plead the fifth and without his accuser appearing in court-to a six year term for making an obscene phone call. Three years later the Supreme Court intervened and overturned the conviction, ruling that juveniles could not face sentences more severe than those faced by adults. This book is a in depth look at the juvenile court system from many different perspectives including the children, who are children in age only.
Humes is most involved in the juvenile court of Judge Roosevelt Dorn, whose controversial ideas about how to run juvenile cases cause serious conflicts between his court, the district attorney's office and the public defender's department. Many juveniles are sent directly to adult court rather than being tried as juveniles. Political controversy surrounds all of the policies in the juvenile justice system. In the conservative resurgence of the mid-nineties, a number of "get-tough" laws and regulations are passed in California that send a number of juveniles to adult court that didn't deserve it. However, the laws were prompted in part by another one of the juveniles, Ronald Duncan, a sociopath who brutally murdered two of his co-workers and showed no remorse.
This book represents a year of observation of-and, at times, participation in-the juvenile justice system. It is the story of children, families, and professionals who inhabit the juvenile courthouses of Los Angeles, where the courses of young lives are profoundly altered every day, mostly in secret and only occasionally for the better. No facts have been changed. Two factors made this book possible. But a foot in the door is only a start; I also relied upon the courage, insight, and generosity of many people who labor within the system and who have come to believe that secrecy is harming, not protecting, their life’s work.
again on the rise, No Matter How Loud I Shout offers a rare look inside. This book is fast-paced, eye-opening and so very well written that I just couldn't put it down. Edward Humes takes you on a marvelous, often maddening, trip inside the secret world of juvenile court. In another writer's hands, this could have been a dull story. But No Matter How Loud I Shout swept me up from the very first page.
