Summary This investigation detailed the failings of Nebraska's child protection system. The reporters focus on one specific case, JayCiona Fleming, to illustrate the lack of time, resources and care that plague the system. Officials are overworked and case workers often are not as strict as they could be; as a result, many children remain in homes with unqualified or addicted parents.
