NewsChannel 5 to Air Juvenile Justice Series in November

NewsChannel 5 has announced an “unprecedented investigation” that will “pull back the curtain on Tennessee’s broken juvenile justice system.” Based in Nashville and airing throughout the month, the series aims to expose problems in the juvenile justice system and how that brokenness affects the community. Key findings of the investigation include (1) the system puts violent juvenile offenders back out on the streets again and again; (2) state laws fail to give judges the tools they need to address the problem; (3) children are sometimes detained in conditions that may make them more violent; and (4) police are expected to solve problems that really need a community-wide effort.
