In St. Louis, Black Youths Bear Brunt of Dysfunctional Justice System

2 posts in this topic

Black kids in St. Louis, Missouri are being disproportionately impacted by unconstitutional and discriminatory miscarriages of justice within the Family Court system, according to a two-year investigation by the U.S. Department of Justice.

According to a statement on Friday from the agency's Civil Rights Division, the probe found multiple constitutional violations, including:

>Failure to ensure youth facing delinquency proceedings have adequate legal representation;
>Failure to make adequate determinations that there is probable cause that a child committed the alleged offense;
>Failure to provide adequate due process to children facing certification for criminal prosecution in adult criminal court;
>Failure to ensure that children’s guilty pleas are entered knowingly and voluntarily;
>An organizational structure that is rife with conflicts of interest, is contrary to separation of powers principles and deprives children of adequate due process; and
>Disparate treatment of Black children at four key decision points within the juvenile justice system.
