Description

These stories are the result of a several year long investigation which found that as many as half of Los Angeles County's foster children were needlessly placed into the system. Furthermore, the system is sometime more dangerous than their original home. These placements are encouraged by financial incentives in state and federal laws, which allow counties to receive up to $150,000 for placing and keeping a child in foster care. Children in LA County's foster care systems are six to seven times for likely to be mistreated and three times more likely to be killed than children outside of the system.
