It’s been nearly 20 years since the Quad-City Times investigated the failing juvenile justice system in our bi-state community. For one month in 1994, the Times published daily stories disclosing poor facilities to hold kids charged with crimes; virtually no communication or record sharing among authorities on opposite sides of the river; and few prospects for improvement.
So much has changed since 1994. But not juvenile justice.
