YOUNG POLITICS| Charge Police or Charge Policing
After Elijah McClain was killed by police in Aurora, Colorado when he had committed no crime, the police department was once again in the national spotlight for handling young civilians in an unacceptable, disturbing and preventable way.

Guns were trained on them. One of the girls was only 6. How could this happen after McClain was killed? How do you produce systemic change? We take a look.
