Violence and Youth

You don’t have to see a lot of news headlines to know that young people are frequently behind a lot of the violence we see in our community.  We’ve seen the teens fighting on viral videos. Earlier this month three pre-teens  were arrested and charged with burglary and sexual assault.  There are the broad daylight gun battles and of course… homicides.  What’s behind the violent acts of young people and what can be done to address it?
