Convicted youths escaping custody

Sheila Burke of The Tennessean used state data to show that "children convicted of crimes escaped from state custody more than 4,400 times during the past five years, often by simply walking away from foster homes or other unsecured facilities where they had been placed by the Department of Children's Services." Tennessee's rate of escapes for all kids is about two times the national average.
