I suspect the real offense for which the boy continues to be punished is showing The Authorities to be wrong about something.

For many of them, that's probably true.

For many others, I'd suggest the major reason is that they make money for dealing with troubled & disruptive teen-agers & people in their 20's, &/or have profitable contacts with the private prison industry. I don't think many are too stupid to know what they are doing (though I wish I could) but they clearly don't care about the kids whose lives they can dominate.
