Innocents Jailed in the US?

We put 11 year old kids in jail?  This happens in the USA??

The words of Mohammad, an 11-year-old Palestinian boy imprisoned in the U.S.

During the day Friday, the words of 11-year-old Mohammad Hazahza have filled him up and weighed him down. On Friday night, he pours the words back out, as if wanting to be lifted back up.

"Mohammad is so protective of his mother," says Ralph Isenberg in a weary and reverent voice, recalling the day's visits to Dallas reporters. "I watched as he got her chair and made her comfortable. And that's what he did in jail. He protected her from forced labor. When she was ordered to clean the common area, he did that work for her. He really understands family and duty."
