Juvenile crime – the lost lives of the victims, as well as the lost lives of the children
themselves – is a story that matters deeply to the people of Nashville and families
throughout the state of Tennessee. That’s why WTVF NewsChannel 5 devoted
extensive resources in 2019 to exhaustively and empathetically investigating the state’s
broken juvenile justice system – and exploring what can be done to fix the deep-seated
problems facing our children.
