Juveniles of Color in the Justice System: Seeking Equity

Are juveniles of color equitably treated in the juvenile justice system, in other words, in the same way as white juveniles who commit the same crime?

Is there a fair and equal treatment for juveniles of color within the juvenile justice system compared to white juveniles who commit similar offenses?

Answer:

Obviously, because the whole entire law enforcement and government is corrupt.

Explanation: Various explanations have emerged for the racial and ethnic disparities in the justice system ranging from jurisdictional issues, certain police practices, and pervasive crime in some urban areas. Questions about the equality of minority treatment by police, courts, and other personnel in the justice system have prompted state policymakers to address this important issue. At least 15 states in the past decade have enacted legislation identifying and addressing over-representation of minorities in the juvenile justice system.
