Series Description

Premiered January 1983 Since January 1983, FRONTLINE has served as American public television's - PBS - flagship public affairs series. Hailed upon its television broadcast debut as "the last best hope for broadcast documentaries," FRONTLINE's stature over 23 years is reaffirmed each week through incisive documentaries covering the scope and complexity of the human experience. Series release date: 1/1983

Program Description

When 15-year-old Damien Bynoe and two friends took a gun and went to settle a dispute, 15-year-old Korey Grant and 11-year-old Charles Copney, Jr. wound up dead. Public outcry over the case led Massachusetts politicians to pass one of the country's toughest juvenile crime laws last year. Frontline probes what turned Damien into a kid with a gun, and examines the debate over how to deal fairly with those young men whom life hasn't dealt a fair hand.
