Kid Kills, A
Program Number


Series Description

FRONTLINE is investigative journalism that questions, explains and changes our world. Since 1983, FRONTLINE has served as PBS's flagship public affairs series. Hailed upon its television broadcast debut as "the last best hope for broadcast documentaries," FRONTLINE's stature is reaffirmed each week through incisive documentaries covering the scope and complexity of the human experience.

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.
