Crystal Carreon, crime reporter at the Sacramento Bee, was scheduled to give a talk on the above topic. Unfortunately, crime reporters are vulnerable to events beyond their control, specifically deadlines. In the face of such a deadline, Crystal was unable to make her presentation.
In true Humanist fashion, we adjusted to her absence by having a general discussion, moderated by Bill Potts, on her planned topic. As usual, several of the fifteen HAGSA members present showed a considerable understanding of juvenile justice and of the broader societal issues of which the juvenile justice system, with all its imperfections, is but one symptom.
A full report will appear here shortly.
