When a person commits a crime, the US justice system has a choice: prosecute to the full extent of the law, or take a step back and ask if saddling young people with criminal records is the right thing to do every time. In this searching talk, Adam Foss, a prosecutor with the Suffolk County District Attorney's Office in Boston, makes his case for a reformed justice system that replaces wrath with opportunity, changing people's lives for the better instead of ruining them. In the video he explains how as being a prosecutor one has the power to change and impact someone's life if we just took the time to understand. Christopher is one of the teens he had the opportunity to interact with. Adam took the time to see further more than just the crime he had committed. With the help of Adams he was able to gain more than half of the computers he had stolen. one is always very quick to condem someone but in reality what is the story behind there actions. Many have gone through difficult times or some may just simply need someone to help them and not point a finger at them. In the story, 12 Angry Men, No.8 took the time to examine the case more of the kid who "murdered" his father. Many want justice but what if it was your son, daughter, wife, mother who was being condemned knowing they could have a better future if prosecutors took the time to see the person itself not their crime.
