All kids make dumb mistakes. But depending on your zip code, race or just bad luck, those mistakes can have a lasting impact. Mass incarceration starts young. In Caught: The Lives of Juvenile Justice, hear from kids about the moment they collided with law and order, and how it changed them forever.

Accurate and Insightful

As someone who works in the juvenile justice system I can personally say that this is spot on. This podcast gives insight on the POV of the kids. I would highly recommend this to anyone that is unsure or uneducated about the system. I completely disagree with the people giving ratings that they are blaming the system instead of holding the kid accountable. Z is clearly guilty, is states that multiple times. People refuse to look at all angles, kids are products of their environments and the traumas may have. The system is doing a poor job at rehabilitating these youth and we need more podcasts like this to bring awareness.

Love it!

I love this! It is really worth it to listen to it. This is a real eye opener of the system & how we are failing these young kids! One of my customers if a FL. Public Defender and she posted it on Facebook so that is how I got into this podcast! It’s awesome! Thank you!

Great show!

This is a great representation of a broken system. The negative reviewers of this podcast clearly missed F-ing point. Justice and Reform, Crime and Punishment - these are not black and white issues. This show does a great job of providing context to a world that many are far removed from. Inequality and mass incarceration are symptoms of a criminal justice system that doesn’t work for everyone. I was a juvenile offender that made mistakes, and I wonder how the consequences of those mistakes would have been different if I wasn’t white?
