This is appalling information that should be put in the public domain immediately. There needs to be an investigation of those responsible, but alas, experience teaches us that such measures are so ponderous the conclusion may never be reached in time to help the most vulnerable this side of the grave.
It is difficult to believe that the conditions of the eighteenth century that encouraged philanthropists like Coram to set up institutions where orphans and homeless children could find refuge from exploitation and abuse, are now possible sources for those very evils.
I am tempted to believe that a possible solution might be to deport all found guilty of exploitation to some barren island; there they would be made responsible for their own survival or demise. Similarly, those found guilty of dereliction of duty, or participating in procuring for exploitation in the care and legal systems, might be made to do the same – who knows, we may overcome our problems of overcrowding in prisons and ease the housing situation at the same time.
