The largest spender was the Department of Defense at $61 billion dollars. In the second hour, three guests discuss a proposal to close San Francisco's juvenile hall. Supervisor Shamann Walton is sponsoring legislation that is backed by a super majority of supervisors to close San Francisco's juvenile hall, amidst a San Francisco Chronicle report [3] that youth incarceration rates have plummeted in the last 20 years. Walton joins us in conversation with Kera Gomez of the Young Women's Freedom Center [4] and Mike Males with the Center for Juvenile and Criminal Justice [5] to discuss the low rates of juvenile incarceration, what shutting down the city's juvenile hall looks like and what to replace it with.
