Certainly can be.
Hopefully, while at the reform school for his 45 days, he will be assigned key chapters to read from some practical, experience-based books like “Prison’s Bloody Iron” by Harold Jenks and Michael Brown, “Put ‘Em Down, Take ‘Em Out!: Knife Fighting Techniques from Folsom Prison” by Don Pentecost, and “Knives, Knife Fighting, & Related Hassles” by Marc MacYoung.
