Punished: Policing the Lives of Black and Latino Boys
by Victor M. Rios

The book I read was Punished: Policing the Lives of Black and Latino Boys. The book describes Black and Latino boys’ experience with the criminal justice system and how it can limit the future of these boys. All the boys in the book are from Oakland and it is shocking how they are treated by their families, schools, and law enforcement. I highly recommend the book because it discusses the issues of race, masculinity, justice and resistance.
