New York City councilman BILL PERKINS:
[Administration for Children's Services] grossly misled us in terms of the numbers of children that were participating in these experiments. They originally said only 76. Last week they informed me that there were over 465, and could not even indicate as to whether there were – that number was going to grow even larger.
That gross misrepresentation leads one to believe that maybe there are similar gross misrepresentations with regard to the total clinical trials protocols and program, and therefore, an investigation has to take place, an independent investigation, not a review of what happened, but rather an investigation of what happened, in order to assure the public that what took place was in the best interest of the children. And, in fact, one cannot assume that that was the case.
