War on Children, Chapter 3

Editors’ Note: This is Chapter 3 of a six-chapter expose by ProPublica, an independent, nonprofit “newsroom” that produces investigative journalism “with moral force.” The treatment of children in Tennessee reported here, of whatever race, by local officials, is almost unimaginable. VoxFairfax published chapters 1 and 2 in the last two weeks, and will publish chapters 4-6 over the next three weeks. While the juvenile court judge has vowed to run for reelection next year, many in the community are outraged, and vow that she will not win.

Black Children Were Jailed for a Crime That Doesn’t Exist. Almost Nothing Happened to the Adults in Charge. Congress is now pushing for an investigation.

Chapter 3: “Yeah, That’s the Charge”
