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.
