On this edition of Your Call, we’ll talk about a new Wall Street Journal and PBS FRONTLINE investigation that reveals how a government pediatrician sexually abused Native American boys in his care with impunity.

“Predator on the Reservation” shows how the doctor moved from post to post for decades despite repeated warnings about his behavior. The two-year investigation also reveals accounts of other problematic doctors. What will it take to root out predatory physicians practicing on Native American reservations?
