The new Youth Detention Centre at Wacol won't be enough to fix the Youth Detention Crisis, according to the state's Greens. 
The State Government hopes the new 32-bed facility at Wacol will help ease the overcrowding.
But Greens MP for Maiwar, Michael Berkman says the Palaszczuk government can’t build its way out of the issues plaguing the youth justice system and the cause of youth crime should be addressed.
