WBFF-TV reports on "conditions inside the Hickey School for boys in Baltimore, ..., a facility for juvenile offenders." The key findings include: "gross understaffing at the facility, drugs on campus, convicted felons employed to work with the children there." The stories reveal that a private company, YSl, is getting paid $ 75 million over five years to run Hickey. The report finds that the school, which houses nearly 400 juveniles, provides them with no treatment and "compromises security for students and staff."
