Indianapolis Monthly depicts the devoted work of a long-serving judge, James Payne, at the Juvenile Court Complex in Indianapolis. The story looks at some common patterns in juvenile delinquency cases, and draws the conclusion that 'kids will behave if they receive proper guidance." The article quotes statistics that show the average age of youth delinquents has dropped from 15 1/2 to 13 1/2 in recent years. The reporter examines how, according to clinical psychologists, permanent exposure to violence can influence children's minds.
