Tough on Crime, Tough on Our Kind



YO-TV producers examine the inequities in the criminal justice system and its treatment of youth. They highlight the societal problems that cause youth crime while identifying a range of resources that youth need. Interweaving the personal stories of incarcerated youth with accounts from lawyers, community activists and social workers, these students show what can happen when youth enter the maze of the juvenile justice system.
