New report shows, Rutherford County, Tennessee’s juvenile justice system has a staggering history of jailing children

Nashville Public Radio and ProPublica reporters released an investigative report on the high rates of children, in particularly black children, who have wound up in juvenile detention in Rutherford County, TN.
