Kansas City Youth Court – What’s That?

Did you know that Youth Courts across the country are teaching young people to be involved in deciding innocence or guilt and handing down sentences? That’s right teenagers are defense council, prosecutor, judge and Juries that are holding teens to account for their actions. The charges brought in Youth Court are real and the proceedings have the force of law.

Host Margot Patterson talks with Mary Kay O’Malley, Professor of Law at UMKC, her assistant Kayls Kratofil, a graduate of Youth Court and Omari Tatum who is presently a youth attorney in Youth Court.

This week, we conclude the Green Party Presidential Candidate Forum started last week.  This was recorded in July at the Green Party Annual National Meeting at the University of Missouri-St. Louis.  James Lane, the Green Party candidate for Congress in the 11th, was the keynote speaker at the event.  We’ll round out the hour with his remarks.
