"Black and Hispanic people are more likely to be detained than white people and less likely to be able to afford bail. This unjust bail system is what kept then-teenager Kalief Browder locked away at Rikers Island for three years over a stolen backpack. He was released in 2013 but the unjust incarceration had a negative effect on his mental and emotional health. He committed suicide two years after his release."
"We must come together to reform a bail system that is discriminatory, wasteful, and fails to keep our communities safe.”

Q: What is the difference between a "Juvenile Delinquent" and a "Juvenile Offender"? A: In New York City, when a person who is under 16 years old, but is at least 7 years old, commits an act which would be a "crime" if he or she were an adult, and is then found to be in need of supervision, treatment or confinement, the person is called a "juvenile delinquent". The act committed is called a "delinquent act". All juvenile delinquency cases are heard in Family Court. Children who are 13, 14 and 15 years old who commit more serious or violent acts may be treated as adults in New York City. These cases may be heard in Supreme Court or Criminal Court, but may sometimes be transferred to the Family Court. If found guilty, the child is called a "juvenile offender", and is subject to more serious penalties than a juvenile delinquent.

"There are 2.3 million people incarcerated in the United States, a number that dwarfs the prison population of any other country, and one that has grown at a staggering rate since the ‘70s, when there were just over 350,000 inmates.

In New York City, where some 10,000 inmates are housed in the city’s dozen jails on any given day — and 55,000 inmates are admitted each year — Dr. Ross MacDonald ’03, MD ’08, chief of medicine for the Division of Correctional Health Services, is tackling this issue from a public health perspective."

"The research is informing us now that incarceration is harmful even for those kids who commit crimes, and that we must use validated risk assessment tools to help systems determine which kids present a lesser risk to re-offend, and should not be detained."
Out of destruction can come rebirth. Like the phoenix, a mystical bird of Greek mythology that rises from the ashes of its predecessor, we are experiencing today a rebirth of a once promising trend in juvenile justice I refer to as deconstruction, which goes well beyond what we commonly call deinsti...
