I don't usually do links if I can help it because I find I learn better if I write it in my own words but this article 'The trouble with troubled teen programs. How the "boot camp" industry tortures and kills kids' has to be read to be believed. http://www.reason.com/news/show/117088.html
Now I understand how Guantanamo Bay or the Abu Ghraib incidents could happen.
How can a country that makes a profitable industry from beating and abusing its children claim any moral high ground against any other country?
I'd be happy for any passing American to leave a comment about this.
It recalls the worst of the religious children's homes in Australia of the last century. It shouldn't be happening now in a supposedly free society and I hope it isn't happening here.
