Inside Oak Hill

WaPo's metro columnist Marc Fisher takes a look inside Oak Hill, the DC youth detention center located next to Fort Meade. He finds disgusting conditions---and an experimental effort that turns guards into "youth development specialists" and jail cells into dorm rooms. There is even talk about giving the young inmates puppies to play with.

Sen. Ben Cardin , working with Anne Arundel officials, has been working to see if the decrepit facility should be closed and turned into a park.
