Description

The Baltimore Sun reports about "the lives of 14 of Maryland's toughest juvenile delinquents as they went through one of the state's highly acclaimed boot camps and then returned home on probation.... 'Charlie Squad' ... documented a pattern of assaults by camp guards while the teenagers were in handcuffs and leg shackles. Even worse, once the delinquents were released to their communities, they quickly resumed lives of crime - peddling drugs, shooting heroin, stealing cars and resorting to violence, while easily ignoring required meetings with probation officers and drug counselors."
