Kalief Browder was just 16 years old when he was charged with stealing a backpack. He was never convicted of a crime, yet he was locked up with adults for three years on New York’s most notorious jail complex, Rikers Island. All because his family couldn’t make bail. When he was released, he killed himself. Now, his brother Akeem Browder is fighting to protect children in the criminal justice system today. Soledad O’Brien sits down with him to discuss the state of our juvenile justice system.
