Waste and Violence at Colorado Human Services is a broad investigation into the policies and practices that have led state officials to squander millions, increase benefits to people not qualified for the money and allow repeated attacks on staff and others at their facilities. Despite stalling and refusal to release some records, went over road blocks, obtaining records from other agencies and sources, to tell the story. During four months, found the state repeatedly violated federal law, changed policies to increase welfare benefits and made changes that endangered staff at its juvenile detention facilities.
