Paper I - Part 1 Little Joey's Lost Childhood

One day last summer Joey was arrested yet again for yet another burglary. He was then eleven years old. Soon afterwards, he became famous when, in October last year, he was locked away in a secure unit outside Leeds where he was three years younger than any other inmate, so young that his incarceration required the personal authority of the Home Secretary. Soon his case was being used as ammunition in campaigning to lock up more children.

Joey grew up with his father, a Southern Irish labourer who has not worked regularly for years; and his mother, Maureen also Irish and barely literate, who was only eighteen when she married Gerry, fifteen years her senior. The neighbours say Joey was a nice kid. They remember him skiving off school, too, and thieving, but they don't remember it well. Almost everybody's kids skive off school, and a lot of them go thieving. Gerry says Joey first broke the law stealing some crisps for dinner when he was four. In Gerry's family there has often been trouble with the law: a succession of brothers and uncles behind bars.

By the time he was 10, thieving was the only game Joey knew. He had 35 arrests behind him and the social workers decided he was to be locked up. They had tried taking him into care but he had simply walked out of the homes where they put him. So, in December 1990, he was sent to the secure unit at East Moor outside Leeds.

He liked it there. It is not like a prison, it is more like a school with extra keys. Tucked away there he was a child again. He played with lego. He practised joined-up writing. He woke up feeling ill in the night and cried on the principal's shoulder.

Joey is due to be released from the secure unit in February. Everyone who has dealt with him is sure that he will go straight back to his old ways. They say they have given up on him. They have two options: lock him up or let him go.

Joey is not the only child like this. Every English city has them. Joey just happens to be the famous one. He's bright and he's brave and the psychiatrists agree he is not disturbed.

If you throw a child into the sea it will drown. If you throw it into an English ghetto, it will grow up like Joey.
