Kojo speaks with Arlington Board Chair Katie Cristol about the Amazon HQ2 effect and D.C. Attorney General Karl Racine about his probe into the local Catholic Church and his office's legal challenges against the Trump administration.
D.C. lawmakers are considering revisions to a 1985 law that granted judges flexibility in sentencing young offenders –a measure enacted in response to the disproportionate incarceration of young African-American men. Last year, a Washington Post investigation found that hundreds of young offenders given second chances went on to commit more crimes. Now, the majority of D.C.’s Council has signed on to a new bill that would overhaul the original act and require young offenders to serve full sentences before requesting a clear record. Kojo discusses the bill and the balance it attempts to strike between criminal justice reform and city safety.
