Domestic Violence, Street Violence
Pt. 2Streaming Video - 2009
Domestic violence is one of the least reported crimes in America. In Nashville, TN, we see how intense police investigation and follow-up of domestic abuse have led to the imprisonment of repeat offenders. Teens on Target shows the success of a program where a Los Angeles doctor (weary of treating young gunshot victims) and former teenage patients (half of whom have spinal injuries from gunshot wounds) speak to younger kids around their city about weapons and violence. This program illustrates what ordinary citizens, survivors, and parents can do about gun control. Violence in the media is movingly portrayed, and solutions to its impact on children are discussed.
