Al Jazeera English published this video item, entitled “Young, Black and Behind Bars | 101 East” – below is their description.
Across Australia, Indigenous people are disproportionately arrested and locked up – some as young as 10 years old. In this special report, former inmates reveal what it is like to be imprisoned as a child. As the Black Lives Matter Movement resonates across the globe and Indigenous Australians lead nationwide protests, families describe the heartbreak of losing a loved one to a life behind bars. From outback communities to inside a youth jail, 101 East goes to the front lines of the criminal justice system in Western Australia, the state with the country’s highest rate of Indigenous incarceration. – Subscribe to our channel http://bit.ly/AJSubscribe Follow us on Twitter https://twitter.com/AJEnglish Find us on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/aljazeera Check our website: http://www.aljazeera.com/ #Aljazeeraenglish #NewsAl Jazeera English YouTube Channel
