Boys Ranch

Re “State Crackdown Targets Boys Ranch,” July 8: The announcement that the California Department of Social Services has terminated funding for the placement of juvenile offenders at Arizona Boys Ranch is welcome news.

It must be remembered, however, that the death of 16-year-old Nicholaus Contreraz was the result of a series of deliberate and repeated acts of abuse and neglect during his two-month stay at the ranch.

Justice for Nicholaus can be fully realized only when those responsible for his death are arrested, stand trial and are convicted; and all things being equal--executed.
