Overmedicating Children in Foster Care 23.5.2015 Politics on HuffingtonPost.com
On any given day nearly one in four children in foster care is taking at least one psychotropic medication—more than four times the rate for all children. Nearly half of children living in residential treatment centers or group homes take psychotropic medications. Children in foster care are more likely to be prescribed multiple psychotropic medications at very high doses, although research shows higher doses can result in serious side effects. Viewers of the ABC News program 20/20 may remember Ke’onte Cook from a few years ago; he was a 10-year-old who had already spent four years in foster care being treated with a dozen different medications for conditions including seizures, bipolar disorder, and ADHD. Ke’onte had never been diagnosed with the conditions some of the medications were meant to treat. Under his adoptive parents’ care he stopped taking all the medications and started relying on therapy, and with that new treatment plan he was transformed.

He argued that Baltimore's problems are the result of failed policies. For Ehlrich, funneling more money into inner cities is not the answer. This view is supported by a recent report in the Washington Free Beacon, which analyzed $1.8 million in stimulus funds received by the City of Baltimore. Apparently, the city received $467.1 million to invest in education and $26.5 million for crime prevention. The question is, "Where did all of that money go?" Heather MacDonald, with the Manhattan Institute, believes police officers must refine their tactics and guard against misperceiving ...
