Federal prosecutors have warned Maryland corrections officials to fix serious problems in how juveniles are treated at the Baltimore City Detention Center -- specifically, the prosecutors said teenagers awaiting trial on adult charges are often held in solitary confinement for weeks or months, putting the youth at risk for behavioral or mental problems. The prosecutors said there have been improvements at the detention center, but that its disciplinary process remains “seriously flawed”, its staff not adequately trained, and its treatment and programming for the young people in its control, very limited.

Teenagers are sometimes held in solitary confinement for far too long .. while awaiting adult charges in the Baltimore City Detention Center. That's according to a scathing new review by the US Justice Department. We talk about it with Kara Aanenson, a juvenile-justice advocate with the non-profit Just Kids Partnership.

Then, how does the media shape what we think of Islam? Tom Hall speaks with a Muslim activist and an Al Jazeera America host about how Muslims are portrayed in the media.

Plus, theater critic J. Wynn Rousuck reviews "After the Revolution,", playwright Amy Herzog's study of a family propelled by Marxist politics, now up at Center Stage.

A decade ago, a Google search for “obesity” returned 217,000 hits. Now it’s 74 million. According to Harriet Brown, science writer and professor of journalism at Syracuse University, we’re more freaked out than ever about how much we weigh and how our bodies look though science tells us that, in many cases, our fears are unfounded. What if we could be satisfied with our bodies the way they are?

Baltimore's Ticking Time Bomb?

Last month, AMP's Marketplace reported on Baltimore’s aging and leaking sewer system, calling the old pipes “time bombs buried under the streets.” This characterization in national media comes just as the city embarks on a $1.5 billion plan to replace decrepit pipes. Rudy Chow, director of the Department of Public Works, responds to the Marketplace report and explains how the city will fix its aging infrastructure.

What role does the media play in shaping our perceptions of Islam and how is it shaping religious discourse? That's the question on our minds in March's edition of  Living Questions, our series in which we examine the role of religion in the public sphere. We’re producing this series in partnership with the Institute  for Christian and Jewish Studies. Maryland Morning will be partnering with ICJS at a public panel at the Park School on April 15th that takes up the same topic, Being Muslim in America: Why Media Matters. Today's guests are Rabia Chaudry and Wajahat Ali, who will be serving on the April 15th panel.

Rabia Chaudry is an attorney and a National Security Fellow at the New America Foundation, and  also the advocate whose phone call to This American Life producer Sarah Koenig sparked the podcast series Serial.  Wajahat Ali is a playwright, and the co-host and digital producer of Al Jazeera America’s The Stream. Both  Chaudry and Ali join host Tom Hall by phone.
