American justice systems are among the most punitive in the world. Young people who come into conflict with the law should be diverted into community-based programs, instead of being adjudicated by courts and sent to systems of incarceration. Research demonstrates the ineffectiveness of incarceration as a means of delinquency control and the ways it actually worsens juveniles’ circumstances.
