When 13 year old Kasey Ryan Warner downed in a bathtop with only 10 inches of water it was clear for all involved that it was time for guidelines so such a tragedy could not occur again.
For once the politicians did what you could expect from them. They did sit down and wrote a new set of guidelines. Kasey Warner should not have died in vain.
But an article published a year later reveals that the owner of the facility Kasey Warner died in - a certain Viaquest - did not take these new guidelines serious.
The state started to shut some of the group homes down much to the protest of the owner, but what would have been the alternative? Letting it pass and end up with another downed teenager?
