Governor Jerry Brown has proposed phasing out the state Division of Juvenile Justice over the next three years -- a move which the Legislative Analyst's Office says could save the state more than $100 million. But critics argue the counties don't have the resources or training to take care of the state's most violent juvenile offenders.
