TEENS IN THE NEWS
Tuesday, November 25, 2014 by Patti Shene

The tragic shooting of an 18-yr old teen by a police officer in Ferguson, Missouri, and subsequent decision by a grand jury not to indict  the officer has sparked a firestorm of reaction.

Leave a comment by answering one of any three of the following questions to be placed in a drawing to win a copy of any YA book mentioned on Teens of Today and Tomorrow. Contest is open from now until Monday, December 8th at 12:00 MN MST. (Email is not visible to the public when entered in the submission form, so your privacy is protected. If you leave email in the body of the comment, it will appear.) Please keep comments language appropriate, for younger readers. Thank you!

1. As a teen, do you trust law enforcement to protect the rights of all individuals to the best of their ability? Why or why not?

2. Would you, as a teen, participate in a protest that promotes violence? Why or why not?

3. As a young person, what suggestions do you have to improve the relationship between all races in your generation?
