CBS was also the only network to cover the decision by the Texas Youth Commission to release more than 1,000 inmates from its juvenile detention system after the expose of alleged "widespread physical and sexual abuse, neglect, mismanagement and a cover-up," as Byron Pitts put it. Pitts profiled Genger Galloway, the mother of a 19-year-old awaiting his return after four years inside. She showed records of her son's abuse: a broken nose and black eye. Galloway has become an activist for reform of the entire system: "If I, as a parent, took my child and locked him in a closet and I stripped him butt-naked and I pushed another inmate in there with him and let him rape him, they would put me in jail."
