Episode 41: Youth Justice in Milwaukee (Part 2)

This is the second episode in our series on youth justice in Milwaukee, and what the closure of Lincoln Hills and Copper Lake as youth correctional institutions might mean for Milwaukee in the coming years. In this episode we talk about the role of the courts in the justice system, how Act 185 came to be, and what alternatives to incarceration are out there. We talk to Deputy Chief Judge Joe Donald, 10th district State Rep. David Bowen, and co-founder of Youth Justice Milwaukee and Urban Underground Sharlen Moore.
