A report released Wednesday by the Equal Justice Initiative covers juveniles put in prison for life, without parole. The U.S. is the only country known to condemn 13- and 14-year-olds to imprisonment until death.

Bryan Stevenson, executive director for the Equal Justice Initiative, talks with Michele Norris.
