Manifest

2018

In Series 1, Episode 15 (with a brief follow-up in Episode 16) of the Manifest (2018) drama series on Netflix, robber and murderer James Griffin is revealed to have been in foster care. He'd been moved between 4 homes, committed his first offense at the age of 15, and was in prison at the age of 19.
The story-line adds nothing except to perpetuate stereotypes of kids in foster care.
