Like a “Third World country prison”

A new county report on Los Angeles County’s Central Juvenile Hall depicts it as a leaderless operation with “unacceptable” and “deplorable” conditions similar to a “Third World country prison.”

Some walls were covered in gang graffiti and filth that no one made an effort to wash away.

Morale among staffers was at “dungeon lows from a workforce that claims to be victims.”And young detainees were sent into isolation for reasons outside of department policy — in one case for exchanging food with another detainee, the report alleges.
