Yet, just 20 minutes after a supervisor assured her Whitney Bonds would be safe, another officer called Haley to say her daughter was “bleeding out” and being rushed to the emergency room. Two months later, Whitney says guards at the Rome RYDC used bribes of food to set one youth against another. “It’s like they’re dogfighting these kids,” her mother said.
