Here, Jim Hill High School student Ruben Banks leads a break-out discussion about building respect between law enforcement and young people at Wingfield High School. Mississippi FBI Special Agent in Charge Christopher Freeze (in coat and tie) was his co-moderator. The next youth-crime dialogue is Thursday, March 22, from 6 to 8 p.m. at Jim Hill High School. The public is welcome.
