NJ: Advocates Call for Change in Juvenile Justice System (Includes video)
NJTV – October 18, 2016
“Because the way our systems work we are so busy that we rarely have the time, we can’t start from scratch, you’re going to use the materials that come from education, from child welfare, from a police report, you’re going to utilize all of that information. So if there’s a cumulative bias that starts at the first decision point and continues at every subsequent decision point, we can promote bias against an individual without anybody noticing it,” said Rita Cameron Wedding, professor of women’s and ethnic studies at Sacramento State University.
