"W.J. Maxey is the largest 'training school' for juvenile felons in the state of Michigan, and houses the most dangerous of those. For many years, stories about staff-on-staff, staff-on-youth violence and abuse have been rife. Escapes were a common occurrence. The facility hired felons to work with the youth. But no one has ever been able to document the problems, because of confidentiality laws that protect the Family Independence Agency, the state agency that runs all public juvenile facilities. "
