Description

The Bay Guardian reports that "juvenile offenders--especially girls--are hidden victims of San Francisco's law-and-order crackdown... The fastest growing population in U.S. jails and prisons is women, and about two-thirds were first arrested as juveniles, and about half of them spent time in detention when they were minors... Girls make up almost a quarter of San Francisco's Juvenile Hall population, but a Bay Guardian investigation has revealed that they get nowhere near a quarter of the attention."
