“Lost in Lockup”


A few years ago, in 2013, I did a story with 18 Degrees North on police lock-ups, or where people charged with a crime go prior to prison. My story was on children being placed in adult lock-ups, which contravenes international law. Apparently, the government has not completed the task of retrofitting some building to accommodate youth, nor are they improving the situation for adults. Check out some interviews here. I wish I had the time to follow up and see where children are being held.
