DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Some troubling incidents at the Iowa juvenile home are being concealed in records state officials release to the public.
The Des Moines Register reports the Iowa attorney general's office tried to electronically black out details of abuse allegations, illegal restraints and other problems at the home in Toledo.
The newspaper discovered the details of what happened after copying and pasting the records into another file.
Register Publisher Rick Green says officials went too far because the hidden information helps show how the home was run and how kids were treated.
The Attorney General's spokesman Geoff Greenwood says the information was blacked out because it revealed details of individual cases, and state law protects children's privacy.
The newspaper did not identify individual children in the records.
