The police know it. The prosecutors know it. The courts know it. Anybody who reads the court records and police reports knows it.
This could have been any one of us, or any one of our children who was falsely arrested, railroaded, and imprisioned. If we let this stand, who will be next?
Demand that the prosecutors stop covering up their frame-up of this innocent child and come clean. Demand that Davontae be freed to come home

New Campaign Seeks to Sharply Reduce Youth Incarceration

New Campaign Seeks to Sharply Reduce Youth Incarceration | SocialAction2014 | Scoop.it

The Youth First! Initiative — founded by longtime juvenile justice advocate Liz Ryan — will also seek to reduce rampant racial and ethnic disparities in juvenile incarceration.

“The vast majority of these kids are in for things like misdemeanors, status offenses [such as cutting school or alcohol possession], property offenses, drug offenses, even probation and parole violations,” Ryan said. “To me, it just underscores that at a minimum, we could experience another 50 percent drop in youth incarceration.”
