Description

The Miami Herald's extensive series on two of Florida's social service agencies, the Department of Children and Families and the Department of Juvenile Justice, uncovers corruption, cronyism, abuse, and neglect. Miller's investigation exposes how administrators used their power to place valuable contracts in the hands of their friends. The report also investigates the death of Omar Paisley, a 17-year-old detainee in the Department of Juvenile Justice, who died of appendicitis while nurses and employees ignored his screams of pain and told him to "suck it up."
