Why do we still put kids in shackles when they go to trial ? Murder suspects come to court in suits. Kids who steal gum arrive in leg irons and belly chains.

Article from the Washington Post. While adults arrive at the court in suit, the minors arrive hand-cuffed. The Supreme Court of the United States has constitutionally declared that having the sued adult hand-cuffed should be limited to the extreme cases. But it remains silent in the matter of minors. Most of the American States have the children hand-cuffed, even though they are not sued for violent acts and are not causing any risks for the security.
