Youth To Adults At Forum: "Get Out"

Memphis' youth voices concerns for community

The Memphis mayor's office organized a series of "youth empowerment forums" following a series of violent incidents.. Including the mob attack on innocent people outside a Kroger store.  We were there to cover the event.  However, all adults were asked to leave before it really began.  That included the media.  Of course, I asked the man in charge (a mayor's office appointee) if he'd be leaving too.  I didn't stick around to see if he did.  I do get the point.  It allowed young people to openly discuss things without feeling as if they needed to edit themselves.
