Juvenile Justice Reform
On Monday, 20 February 2006, we chatted with Mary Ellen Johnson, the executive director of the Pendulum Foundation, about juvenile justice reform and why states lock up children and teens for life. See press release. Ms. Johnson and the Pendulum Foundation are cited in a front-page article on "Teen Crime, Adult Time," in the (19 February 2006) Sunday edition of the Denver Post.
We discussed healing and "restorative justice". An earlier Subversity show dealt with restorative justice in hate crimes: The Quakers (AFSC) have argued for restorative justice in hate crimes; their report is here: www.afsc.org/community/hatecr.pdf.
