Florida reform school--more graves found

Like Tree6Likes

Oh yes!! The hunting down of the boys! How extreme was that? There were boys who were shot down like animals. If i lived there, I would wonder why they felt these boys were so dangerous they had to hunt them down like harden criminals, but yet have no barracades keeping the general public safe? I would had begin questioning things like that for the safety of my family. But yet, no one did. I find that strange.

I'm just thinking about the alleged murders. I would be stunned if the locals knew about and condoned that.

They are still children and are treated as such.

this makes me think of a story I heard of as a kid. took place during this time period. a 4 year old girl is at the store with her mother and not knowing any better she pocketed a piece of candy. she ended up being arrested for grand theft and sentenced to hard labor on a chain gang until she was 21. along side grown male hardened criminals, away from her family. because of physical punishments inflicted on her during this time she grew up to have a host of medical problems, including infertility. I remember hearing this at 12 and being horrified, thinking this couldnt have happened often, my mom said it did. she said this is why black parents were super strict in the old days. the fear was your child would make some normal childish mistake and something like this would definately happen. so to protect your kids you had to have complete unwaivering control over them at all times.

I'm not advocating kiling any of them. But they're no choir boys and there are armed guards on site for a reason.

The whole thing is just sickening
I believe in manicures. I believe in overdressing. I believe in primping at leisure and wearing lipstick. I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles.

I know the area they talking about and yes, there were those who had knowledge of what was going on.

It's ironic bc "reform schools" were created as a reformation to the old, abusive practices of housing juvenile criminals along side of adult adult criminals in adult prisons. But now the juvenile residents are just being abused my the staff rather than by older inmates.

$$$$ was the reason. That area is rural and quite poor. Also, there is a thought process that if you were sent there, you deserved it and whatever happened to you.

For 109 years, this is where Florida has sent bad boys. Boys have been sent here for rape or assault, yes, but also for skipping school or smoking cigarettes or running hard from broken homes. Some were tough, some confused and afraid; all were treading through their formative years in the custody of the state. They were as young as 5, as old as 20, and they needed to be reformed.
It's so sad that it got so little attention that so few know about it even now.

I think we're all in aggreement that the murders and abuse were unconscienable.

But there were objections made to them being chased and hunted by the locals when they escaped. And I'm saying "so what" to that part.

Hot holy hell. Did anybody make it through that whole pdf doc? That was some difficult and strange reading. And while it didn't discuss anything about beatings, it did disclose a lot of inhumane treatment and huge discrepancies of recording and reporting of deaths.

This area is under construction as my hair type changed and nothing works well for me. I shampoo, I condition and pretty much have done nothing but chuck my hair in a messy bun for the past oh...year? Yeah, I'm that lazy.

No...going no-poo or CG does not work for me. It leaves me overconditioned and oily in a second no matter what I use, so that's not what's not working.
I wish I could have opened that pdf. I tried a couple of times. It just froze my computer. Maybe there were a lot of people trying to download it at the same time or something. I definitely want to look at it.

It is so distressing to imagine this happening for so long.
