Hell Hole

In his four-part series "Predators Among Us," reporter Jason Grotto of the Miami Herald takes a searing look at the failures of a Florida program that is supposed to treat sexual offenders. Using extensive interviews and document reviews, Grotto shows how inmates at the Florida Civil Commitment Center often don't get the treatment they are supposed to receive, leaving them as threats to molest women and children once they get out. Grotto uses strong examples to show how violence, drugs, alcohol and pornography have overtaken the supposedly therapeutic center. Grotto traces the troubles to lack of funding and oversight by the state.
