Racial Bias in Juvenile Justice

at 9:00 AM
 (Krissy Clark/KQED)

A new study from Stanford psychologists finds people are more likely to approve of harsher sentences for black juveniles than white offenders. A group of white test subjects were more likely to say that all juveniles should be treated as adults and given life without parole if the offender described was black. We discuss race disparities and juvenile justice.
