Can you blame them if they were being sexually abused?

I can only pray to God this is true and they got away somewhere to call the police.....hopefully there will be more to be able to leave "the compound" of this cult.

I was there that day and dont remember anyone running at all. Unless it was the 2 boys that got caught 20 minutes later..
And Humm, there was no sexual abuse going on at D.A. I was there for 364 DAYS, I bet you dont even know that no one is allowed to even TALK without atleast one other person there plus the chaperone.
You all hear all this shit about the bad schools and yeah they are out there but Darrington isnt one of them, I am glad I am home but stop assuming every single one is so wrong.

They cannot be sent to Tranquility Bay because TB is being shut down due to illness by the director of this private prison. It did happen late January. The ghost of the poor Valerie who ended up with her head crushed after a fall from the third floor did hunt this place. People are still looking for her suicide note, which survivors have seen.

Also Spring Creek Lodge did close in January, but the kids were moved down the road to a new program called Star Creek Crossing. This new program is run by the same directors who were in charge when a girl hanged herself at Spring Creek.

As for newcomers about to enter the program, please seek Child protection services and ask to be placed in foster care. It will be bad but you can avoid suffering from Post Traumatic Stress disorder for decades from now.

Maybe Darrington will be closed for a while. Locals have told us that kids are being transported out of state because local authorities want to interview them about living standards. The staff don't want it, so they are being removed for the time in an attempt to prevent the investigation from going anywhere.

I just thinks its funny that people who havent been there or know what we went through are telling us whats going on at these places just let it go you really make yourself look stupid acting like you know more than the people who have been there.

What is Darrington exactly? A school for "problem" teens?

My wife and I took in a couple runaways from an "academy" in Idaho. They were 18, so they more or less left on their own. We let them stay a couple days until they could raise bus fare back home to their parents. One girl's father called me, pretty upset, but I told him his daughter was a legal adult who could do as she pleased and he would have to deal with her on her terms, now.

BTW, these girls weren't juvenile delinquents. One would occasionally sneak out to party, but neither had drug problems, criminal records, etc. Just overprotective parents who had the $$$ to dish out for this academy place.
