There are more children being put behind bars in the United States than in any other country. Research shows that the Land of the Free is locking up their kids in a 5-1 ratio compared to other nations.

Statistics show that more than two million juveniles are being detailed each year in the United States. About 95 percent of them are for nonviolent offenses. Yes, this is far greater than any other country in the western world. What makes this even more frustrating is that many minors are left defenseless as they lack support behind bars.

In criminal justice systems a youth detention center, also known as a juvenile detention center, juvenile detention, juvenile hall or more colloquially as juvie, is a prison for children who commit crimes but are still under the age. Several different reports suggest that many young children in America are imperiled by abuse, neglect, domestic and community violence, and poverty.
