Escape from Youthdale

August 19, 2009 permalink

The story told by a recently escaped inmate of Youthdale (pdf) makes it sound like Youth Gulag. Physical abuse is routine, and children are under surveillance 24/7. What little outside communication is allowed is closely monitored, children are kept computer illiterate to further block communication. Staff confiscate money and belongings and lock up children's shoes at night to thwart escapes. Children are force-fed mega-doses of drugs. The child reporting is the one victimized by Donna Lennon, the Easter Grinch, in earlier stories on May 15, and June 2, 2006.
