FRONTLINE: When Kids Get Life

This is appalling. Click the link and you can watch the whole episode.

This is about juvenile offenders going to jail for life without the possibility of parole. When you hear some of these stories from my own state of Colorado and realize juveniles are being sent to jail forever for snapping under a lifetime of abuse, for being present when someone else committed a crime, etc., it is so horrific and sad - and very important. There are what seem to very obvious miscarriages of justice and violations of human rights of our own kids and no one is helping them.
