This place is nothing but trouble. It generates one lawsuit after another and it's time for them to close up shop and move on. In it's place should be a maximum security prison for underage offenders. The time for compassion has past and the time for punishment is at hand. All the bleeding hearts and their social policies have failed a generation or more of our children. What worked in the past will work again, discipline and accountability, followed by severe consequences for noncompliance. Children today are not the same as they were 20 or so years ago. They lack the common decency and morals instilled by parents of generations past. Children need rules, children need discipline, and most of all children need boundaries. Liberals like to tell us that "children are our future", they are not. Our future will be determined by how the children of today are raised into adulthood by this generation of parents.

A facility is benficial for troubled kids but Kidspeace was not run properly. Overmedicating kids with prozac and other drugs does not work. They need Marine drill Sergeants who will whoop these kids into both physical and mental shape!

That is exactly what the kids of today need. It's my understanding that alot of these kids are kept doped up until it's time to be released back into society and that can't be a good thing. A bootcamp type program will give them the chance to succeed even if it's not the "real thing".
