Males, who underwent his Ph.D training at UC Irvine, is a frequent op ed writer, and a contributing writer at OC Weekly. He finds that adult courts are more likely than juvenile courts to imprison nonwhite kids. He found that Latino youth are 6 times more likely, African American youth are 12 times more likely, and Asian/other youth 3 times more likely than white youths to be found unfit for juvenile court and transferred to adult court (see www.cjcj.org/colorofjustice/).
This is his third appearance on Subversity. We'll also ask him about Proposition 21, the "juvenile injustice" initiative, slated for the March 7 ballot, a proposed law that further criminalizes youth.
Listeners can call (949) 824-5824 to chat with Males during the show, or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
