Description

"Residents of a state-run institution for the developmentally disable and mentally retarded have been physically, emotionally and sexually abused for years. At times medical treatment has been inadequate, and life-threatening. Politics and fear kept employees and families from speaking out. State and federal investigations have been cursory and have not addressed long-term systemic problems." This collection of stories document this abuse and reveal how it was covered.
