Illinois Youth Center Murphysboro juvenile detainee Rakim Ball steps through the dinner line in the dining hall, called the “mess hall,” Oct. 4, 2009. Ball first became involved in gang activity at the age of 12 and has been sentenced to IYC Murphysboro three separate times. “I’m almost 20 years old and this shouldn’t be a place for me,” said Ball. “I just want my mom to be proud because the only thing she gets from me is a phone call from IYC Murphysboro.”
