Making Strides on Youth Violence Crime can stop lives when they've barely begun. Homicide is the second leading cause of death for Americans between the ages of 15 and 24. In Cleveland, a lot of folks are doing something about youth violence. The organization Peace in the Hood works to lessen tensions. Local police eagerly learn a new role as 'social first-responders.' And a coalition of church leaders plans to march Christian soldiers into the fray. Join Mike McIntyre for conversation about combating youth violence Thursday morning on The Sound of Ideas.
