An article about the Kids-for-Cash scandal

In the Morning News John Davidson ran a personal essay about his brief involvement in what later would be known as the Kids-for-Cash scandal.

It is basically a story about his problems dealing with a criminal case which involved so much unjust against a teenage rape victim.

It would be unfair for me to tell you about the contents of the article. Basically you would read it instead.

California group home: Psyc evaluations of employees needed

The recent discovery of a mummified baby left by one of the employees of a Christian residential treatment facility leaves the question why there is no rules about a mandatory psychological evaluation of people who want to work with vulnerable teenagers.

The Julian Youth Academy has been controversial for some years. An article in LA Times resulted in a massive debate.

The facility took private paid clients and the job consisted in preventing the teenagers from leaving and inform the authorities until the teenagers surrendered to the special Christian belief they taught at the facility.

It is time to demand stricter rules for facilities like Julian Youth Academy. Mandatory background checks and evaluation of the mental conditions should introduced at once.

Otherwise it is only a question of time before the next case hit the frontpages.
