Washington Post Editorial on DC Mental Retardation Agency
See this piece from Saturday's post. It begins:
NOW WEIGHING a request to place the District's troubled mental retardation agency in court receivership, U.S. District Judge Ellen Segal Huvelle has plenty of credible information in hand to support charges of fatal neglect and abuse in city-contracted group homes for people with mental retardation. Two developments reported last week in The Post drive home the point that the Williams administration's oversight of the city's Mental Retardation and Developmental Disabilities Administration (MRDDA) has left some of the city's most vulnerable residents in great danger.
