such as Montana, Dakota, Alaska, and South Dakota. Furthermore, of all the youth that are
confined to a facility, 74% of them are native American (Native Lives Mater 7). The story
also shows that there was unfairness occurs once they are jailed. An example is provided of

that remain unsolved (The Police Killings No One Is Talking About par. 6). Due to police
brutality, the minorities are still not safe even if they are in a jail cell.
