Poll: Will the new youth justice center have a positive impact on the county's juvenile justice system?

King County voters approved a new $210 million Children and Family Justice Center in 2012, but rising community opposition and a study revealing racial disparity in sentencing have county officials rethinking the building's design and purpose. Will a new family-friendly facility with fewer jail beds be enough to satisfy critics? Can the plan promote justice, protect the public and help youth in trouble? What is restorative justice and who does it benefit?
