NEW HAVEN, Conn. — Calling the police should not be the trigger response any time a kid gets caught fighting at school or stealing a candy bar at the store.

That was the opinion of three juvenile justice experts who met Wednesday night for a filmed conversation with N'Zinga Shani, executive director of OneWorld Progressive Institute. The panel discussed juvenile justice issues, dispelled some myths about teen behavior and talked about resources available to kids and parents for a show called "The Education Agenda" that was filmed at the North Haven Community Television studio.
