This clip deals with a part of the program that examined isolated
events in 1996 that led to the syphilis outbreak and the discovery of
extreme behavior among a part of the teen community in Rockdale County,
Georgia. This behavior is not typical of most teens in Rockdale County
at that time, nor after.
You'll need RealPlayer G2 to view these clips.
ED. NOTE: Not all the teens interviewed by FRONTLINE or, who appeared
in the FRONTLINE program, were exposed or even connected to the
syphilis outbreak; in fact, many of the younger teens didn't know about
the strange events that occurred in Rockdale County in the spring and
summer of 1996.
