From Missouri, the legacy of a residential treatment facility for boys and young men, and stories of an abusive regime of “tough love.” Maurice Chammah, reporting for the Juvenile Justice Information Exchange, talks to the teens who lived there about the memories that haunt them. He also talks with the staff who tried to maintain control.
