No matter how loud I shout a year in the life of Juvenile Court

Now updated with a new introduction and afterword, this award-winning examination of the nation's largest juvenile criminal justice system in Los Angeles by a Pulitzer Prize'winning journalist is "an important book with a message of great urgency, especially to all concerned with the future of America's children" (Booklist). In an age when violence and crime by young people is again on the rise, No Matter How Loud I Shout offers a rare look inside the juvenile court system that deals with these children and the impact decisions made in the courts had on the rest of their lives. Granted unprecedented access to the Los Angeles Juvenile Court, including the judges, the probation officers, and the children themselves, Edward Humes creates an unforgettable portrait of a chaotic system that is neither saving our children in danger nor protecting us from adolescent violence. Yet he shows us there is also hope in the handful of courageous individuals working tirelessly to triumph over seemingly insurmountable odds. Weaving together a poignant, compelling narrative with razor-sharp investigative reporting, No Matter How Loud I Shout is a convincingly reported, profoundly disturbing discussion of the Los Angeles juvenile court's failings, providing terrifying evidence of the system's inability to slow juvenile crime or to make even a reasonable stab at rehabilitating troubled young offenders. Humes draws an alarming portrait of a judicial system in disarray.

  • ""With the urgency of a suspense novel and the power of investigative reporting, Humes take readers onto the street with flak-jacketed probation officers fighting to keep kids alive, into the courthouses where hope and hopelessness collide daily in epic struggles that reveal the best and worst in ourselves and our children, and past the triple-steel doors of Los Angeles' mammoth Central Juvenile Hall, the system's grim, last stop. Here, as a volunteer teacher, Humes also coaxes from these children the stories and poems of a lost generation, raw screams for help and understanding." Humes follows closely the cases of seven young people who were caught up in the system, three of whom have been saved by it?maybe."
