DoJ looks at TYC

The U.S. Department of Justice will investigate "conditions of confinement and treatment of residents" at the Evins Regional Juvenile Center in Edinburg, State Rep. Aaron Peña announces on his blog:
This office has been monitoring the situation at Evins since receiving complaints from guards and parents regarding issues of abuse, unsafe working conditions and other concerns about the facility. ...

This office welcomes the investigation by the US Department of Justice and will provide any assistance and cooperation in completing this inquiry.
The Texas Observer recently published an article on the facility, and you can find more stories from Freedom Newspapers on the problems at Evins in my earlier post.
