    The Juvenile Justice System - A Dangerous Web

    in Education

    The juvenile justice and criminal justice systems ensnare far too many black and brown boys and men. Increasingly, women are caught in this dangerous web too. On this episode of Know-It-All, we are exploring the contours of some of the barriers to mental health and developmental wellness for communities of color that can lead to mass incarceration.


    Dr. Troy Waller is a licensed professional counselor with 15 years of counseling experience. He explains the implications of the breaks in various systems - education, criminal justice, and health care - that keep those systems from adequately protecting and serving black and brown people. He'll share his insights about how these systemic failures manifest and show up in the lives of adults, no matter their socioeconomic status.


    Host Allison R. Brown is a civil rights attorney and founder of Allison Brown Consulting (ABC), which creates education equity plans and promotes equity in education in compliance with federal civil rights law.

    Juvenile Justice Reform in Virginia

    Tune in this Thursday when we take a look at Virginia’s sentencing structure for juveniles. We will be interviewing Kate Duvall, an attorney with JustChildren. She represents individual youth who have been given blended juvenile and adult sentences in unique sentence review hearings. Kate is also involved with Virginia’s Don’t Throw Away the Key campaign, which is focused on reducing the number of youth who are transferred to adult court. We will be discussing how Virginia’s juvenile transfer laws got to where there are today, how JustChildren thinks the laws should change in the future, and how to get involved in the Don’t Throw Away the Key campaign. Don’t miss another great show!

    Tribal Youth and Juvenile Justice

    in Legal

    Tribal Youth and Juvenile Justice: Promoting Resiliency, Youth Engagement, and Delinquency Prevention
    American Indiana and Alaska Native (AI/AN) children and youth have historically been overrepresented in systems, including the juvenile justice system. This has severely impacted AI/AN youth and also the tribal communities’ ability to provide resources and services to tribal youth and their families. Stephanie Autumn and Gerry RainingBird from the Education Development Center, Tribal Programs join this episode of Spotlight on Youth to provide an overview of the demographics of tribal youth at risk for or involved in delinquency matters, discuss the unique risk and protective factors, and share promising practices in prevention and intervention. Guests will also explore the complexities of juvenile justice reform in tribal communities as complicated by the potential multiple jurisdictional issues and the distinct traditions of each tribe.

    The Pennsylvania Justice Project - A Wrongfully Accused Man's Story

    in Legal

    It has been about 2 years now, since I began to research and review the facts in the Timothy McEnany case — one of the worst miscarriages of justice in PA history, in my opinion. 


    McEnany was accused of murdering a Hummelstown woman in March, 1993; and despite mishandling and tampering at the crime scene by the victim’s family, gross errors and misrepresentations of so-called “expert witnesses”, and a litany of inconsistencies longer than your arm, McEnany was tried and found guilty of the crime he didn’t commit.

    In this episode, we'll talk about the (poorly) manufactured evidence against McEnany, and the gross inconsistencies in the Commonwealth's case against him. How was this abusrd evidence not challenged? 

    And be sure to tune into our next program, when we take a look at one of the reasons that might have happened... It's called Incentivised Injustice... and it's all too commonplace in Pennsylvania it seems!

    The Pennsylvania Justice Project - Did Tim McEnany Get a Fair Trial?

    in Legal

    It has been about 2 years now, since I began to research and review the facts in the Timothy McEnany case — one of the worst miscarriages of justice in PA history, in my opinion.

    In this episode, we'll talk about the suspicious chain of events during and following Timothy McEnany's trial for the murder of Katherine Bishop, and we'll ask why the most likely suspect in the case was completely ignored.
