These young men all commited very serious crimes in the 90s, such as murder and sexual abuse.

I will try to find the sourse of this photo again. It must have been taken not long ago, but maybe still in the USSR. Philip, once I saw a terrible documentary film on TV about an American camp for young criminals. I suppose it was the same you wrote about. :((

You mean this photo was taken in 1930's? It doesn't look that old. I'd say it is a contemporary photo.

Thanks Schumi. Although the shots are long with little detail, with the exception of the prison cell with the youngsters behind. But 'they' are smiling. The shot you posted is completely different. The boys are the 'living dead.' It is terrible, but a good example of our society. No government has any understanding of the problems within society. It reminds me of that buffoon Conservative Home Secretary, Willy Whitelaw, back in the early eighties, and his 'short-sharp-shock' treatment for young offenders. He gave his draconian plan a couple of years, which ended in utter and total failure. There are deep psychological issues that 'cause' young people to offend. Those issues are firstly parental, and secondly societal. But it can also be interpreted as societal-parental.

I think nowadays it is quite different from what it used to be.

What about military training?

I don't think so. I don't even think that it is easy to get a permission to take photos there.

Could it be a gulag?

It's a very provocative photo. It gets your attention. Could this be a photo from Life magazine?

If that is a prison, somehow I don't think those kids are being rehabilitated in any sense of the word.

OK, Philip, I'm trying to find something for you. I have not seen these "prisons", have just heard about them. They are terrible places....

Schumi, please supply some information about this shot!!! What was the location, and what was the shot about??? The young boys look as though they have had Hell beaten into them. Their eyes are DEAD and tell a terrible story. What do we do to our young children on Planet Earth?

I suppose they are young criminals.

How are they fallen? Are they inmates in a boot camp?
