Youth Justice in Queensland
In this series, Kevin catches up on changes to Youth Justice legislation in Queensland in 2023, and the decision to override the Queensland Human Rights Act (TWICE!) in order to further criminalise, target, and punish young people charged with offences. With the help of incredible guests, Kevin sets out to debunk some of the myths around youth crime in Queensland, as well as digging into the media commentary and political rhetoric that has been used to justify these draconian laws. So – listen in yourself – and then send this series onto someone you know who really believes that “youth crime” is out of control and prisons are the only answer.
