    Minnesota juvenile justice system plagued by racial inequity

    Christian Bonner was 14 when St. Paul police first arrested him for fighting in school. “One day I kinda lost it and I went and fought a kid. And the police got called on me,” said Bonner, who is black. “And then I flipped out on the police.” Angry, Bonner lost control and fought back. That mistake led to a week-long stint in the Hennepin County juvenile detention center, where the environment shocked him. Guards required him to undress and shower in front of them. He stayed in a cell that Bonner said looked like jail.
