Where I'm from the youth detention centers (they are not called prisons) are not like this. they are not shot down unless they are threatening others lives. the most dangerous offenders are sent to places with fences and walls. and those who escaped are questioned about their motives. They are still children and are treated as such.That's still how it is at juvenile prisons nowadays. If a resident escapes, he/sh will be shot. And there are no fences or walls. Totally typical.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.
