Juvenile Crime In DC, What’s Behind It?

Two teenage girls, 13 and 15, charged with carjacking and murder were back in a DC court today.  Both charged as juveniles in the death of an Uber Eats driver.  Last friday, a pair of 13-year-olds allegedly committed two carjackings on K Street, NW.  Earlier this month, four people including two juveniles were arrested and charged with dozens of robberies and carjackings from Virginia to Maryland. What’s going on with the young people and crime right now?  Why is this happening and what can be done about it?
