Description

From the questionnaire, "The Post documented how the city sent hundreds of children to live in places that were little more than warehouses at a cost to taxpayers of $69 million a year, putting the teens and public in danger while permitting private contractors to enrich themselves at the expense of the children under their care... At least 20 juveniles committed murder, rape and other serious crimes and another 17 were slain while they were on the loose [from the homes]."
