Vocalo's Barber Shop Show

Juvenile Justice

On this Week's Barber Shop Show, we're joined by Angela Caputo of the Chicago Reporter. We'll be talking about her current cover story, "Minor misconduct". In the article, she states that: "In 2010, the state began treating 17-year-olds facing misdemeanor charges as juveniles. But those charged with felonies are still sent to adult courts, and their number has since spiked." Coming to you live each week from Carter's Barber Shop in Chicago's North Lawndale neighborhood, The Barber Shop Show is your weekly dose of real talk, straight from the shop floor. No punches are pulled and no topic is considered off-topic. Hosted by WBEZ's Richard Steele. Produced by Ayana Contreras and Directed by Sarah Lu.
