Young is right to oppose jail

I just wanted to take the time to thank Baltimore City Council President Bernard "Jack" Young for his commitment to Baltimore City youth. It is truly inspiring.

His commentary in The Sun ("Programs, not jail cells, for teenagers," Oct. 7) was an important step toward preventing the building of the juvenile jail, and his ongoing support in opposing that project is needed now, more than ever. I look forward to working with him to advocate for Baltimore's young people and create better opportunities for them to thrive.
