The Weekly: The Promise

26 min • Society, Health & Science • 2020

The New York Times comes across a horrific case of abuse inside one group home in The Bronx, New York. Exclusive documents paint a house of horrors where the victims – all people with developmental disabilities – are unable to communicate or defend themselves. But some of the victims are connected together by a much darker history that raises the alarm about who is watching over these communities. THE WEEKLY investigates how and why the state fails to protect these residents and what happens when society forgets the most vulnerable. (Episode 29 of 30)
