BOOT CAMP FOR KIDS: Torturing Teens for Fun and Profit
Cruelty, sadism, injury & death in locked residential facilities for troubled youthhttp://nospank.net/boot.htm
Youth trainer at a juvenile facility: "If I can't make a kid puke or piss in his pants on his first day, I'm not doing my job."
"The near-total absence of governmental regulation and oversight of locked residential 'treatment' facilities where children are warehoused closely parallels conditions in the pre-FDA days of the Wild West when itinerant pitchmen peddled fake remedies to the gullible. But there is one important distinction. When people became ill as a result of using some toxic homemade brew, the peddler who sold it would have his cart smashed and be lucky to get out of town alive. The 'troubled-teen' industry runs no such risk. When their shabby product fails, as it usually does, they blame the customer, and there are no refunds," J. Riak, Exec. Dir., PTAVE "This nightmare has remained an open secret for years. Sporadic news accounts of specific incidents have built a record that should never have been ignored, but shamefully was. The federal government has completely failed to grasp the urgency of this situation," Congressman George Miller (D-California, 7th Congressional District), Chairman, House Education and Labor Committee, Member, House Natural Resources Committee
