Mike Barnicle talks with youth mentor David Gilkey

Live from Wichita State University’s campus, the Morning Joe panel talks with Wichita-based Koch Industries' Mark Holden and youth mentor David Gilkey of Koch-supported Rise Up for Youth about bipartisan efforts to reform the U.S. criminal justice system. “You’re dealing with a great many people, young people, male and female… many of them probably from broken homes… What’s your argument between the two competing forces of the street and the school?,” asks Mike Barnicle of Gilkey, a former inmate who now works with community organizations on gang prevention and reducing gang involvement. Listen to Gilkey’s approach here and watch the full conversation on the importance of helping former prisoners with re-entry and stability. Only on MSNBC.
