Morning Chat: Violent youth crime: should more be done?

It's time for CBC's morning chat with Matt Kruchak. Today's topic: Is our current justice system adequate for dealing with youth who commit violent crime?

It's time for CBC's morning chat with Matt Kruchak. 

A 13-year-old boy is charged with attempted murder in the stabbing of a 13-year-old girl in Warman on Friday. At the end of August, a boy, who is under the age of 12, became the suspect in the death of a six-year-old boy on the Kahkewistahaw First Nation. 

In light of these violent events, I want to know what you think: 

Is our current justice system adequate for dealing with youth who commit violent crime? Should our system be changed? Why do you think we're seeing young people commit violent crimes? What do you think can be done to help troubled youth before they commit a violent crime? 

Let CBC Saskatoon's Matt Kruchak know what you think. Join the live online chat from 6-8:45 a.m.
