1. What correctional policies can be created from principles of restorative justice (based upon indigenous justice principles)? Are these values more compatible with some offenses than others? More appropriate for some types of offenders than others?
2. Can you describe why juveniles of color have higher rates of contact with the police than white youths? Support your answer with evidence.
3. Although studies reveal that African American, Hispanic, and Native American youth are treated more harshly than white youth at several stages of the juvenile justice process (even after the seriousness of the offense and the offender's prior juvenile record are taken into consideration), they do not tell us why these disparities occur. Support your reasoning with evidence.
