It is none of anybodies buisness what goes down at riverside except those who go to riverside. Why anybody else knows about it i do not know. But the information given to KOCO has been misunderstood and false, she isnt in lock up. Students at RIS are outraged that the public has any information due to the accident here at riverside, Many are defending our school and would appriciate it if our school was left alone, rather than having lie spread about.

Dear Riverside student Bea; How sad it is for the young girl that gave birth and especially the baby that died. People can hardly "spit" on federal land without getting into trouble and YES, it is the authorities business what goes on in Anywhere, USA, especially when there's a death.

Who gives 2 S***s if your school is outraged about this information getting out. You have a student that gave birth and left it for dead how do you think your school looks now, pretty d*** unresponsible for your students saftey if you ask me. If she didn't want a child then she shouldn't have laid down, there are plenty of people who can't have children that would have giving this baby a better home then what she could have probably provided. I promise you there are more people outraged that your school let this happen. My the poor baby rest in piece and I do hope the mother gets well and learns a hard lesson about this.

I definately agree with Debbie and Danielle of Yukon! That school is for troubled students and this goes to show that they're not doing any better there then they would in public schools! But, ONLY IN ANADARKO!!

The federal School should be shut down immediately for an investigation. This is a tragedy.

anytime a death occurs whether it be federal land or private land...a death is public information, whether you agree with that or not. it's not b/c it's an indian school...not that folks have some kind of vendetta against some race or riverside. it's a public record.

i hope the mother of this child gets help and we remember about forgiveness. that is not to forget about the child....the whole thing is very sad....children having children.

It is not the schools fault. This tragedy had happen there, but the school is not at fault. Why would anybody blame the school. When obviously this young girl who probably needed help and was too scared to ask anybody, what else could she have done in her state of mind. Nobody knows what this poor young girl was going through metally and physically.

Just to let OpenMindedHuman know there are some exceptionally intelligent students who attend this school. What do you know about this school? Did you attend this school? Yes there are some troubled students there, just like every other school. Tragedies do not just happen in ANADARKO!! Things happen everywhere! I agree with Verna in Piedmont,MO

Dear Verna and Verna, No one is attacking the school. The "school" did not give birth and hide the baby under a bed. Was this girl pregnant before she was attending school there or did she get pregnant afterwards? The only reason the FBI is involved is because it happened on FEDERAL LAND. ANY BABY (NEWBORN OR OTHERWISE) THAT IS FOUND DEAD UNDER BED WILL BE INVESTIGATED either at the city, county or state level. This situation does raise questions about the school officials. Did they know she was expecting a baby? If so, did they try and do anything to help her? Was the baby alive when it was born? There are a lot of questions here that need an answer.

This is a boarding school! The students stay on campus and live on campus. The student interacts with dorm people, faculty and staff on a daily basis no to mention counselors. No one knew anything? What about swine flu?

I went to school there! Majority of students there are Terriable! talk back, steal, lie, get drunk or high! and the good few that are there should get out!!! And If there so outraged by it and saying its false..then what is it that there not telling the FBI if its false!? "It is none of anybodies buisness what goes down at riverside except those who go to riverside." Are you kidding me!? It was a death of an infant at a school!!!..They should put all the students on lockdown until this gets resolved!

Look, everybody, this is a terrible thing that happened. My mom used to teach there and all I can say is that whole school is a mess! I am so sorry that a baby had to die for RIS to be in the public light. The most of the staff are not qualified to be working there, the most teachers are only there to collect a check, and yes, many of the students are troubled, but everyone there knows it and does nothing about it. Joy Martin has let the administration get away with being sub-par for far too long. Close the school, get rid of Martin and the entire staff, and if the school re-opens, let's do it with new qualified staff that cares about getting these indian kids a real education that will help them when they leave. As it stands, many of those graduating in recent years can barely read or write, let alone develope the skills needed to hold a sustaining job. And forget college! Everything at Riverside needs to be investigated, by outsiders, and get these kids taken care of.

all i have to say is Riverside has gone down over the years.

all these white people need to wake up & realize that their kind make up the majority of prisons & jails!!!!

if there were boarding schools designed for white people & the same thing happened it would be totally different!!!

millions of fetuses are sucked out of females that couldn't keep their legs shut EVERY SINGLE DAY!!!
millions of animals are put to sleep every day!!!
CRY ME A RIVER PEOPLE.

We don't know the cause of death for the baby yet, so everyone needs to quit flappin' their gums.

WOW! Now that is some racist shit. If it were a white person saying that about an Indian, yall would be pissed. And uhhhh, no. Statistically, in Oklahoma, the Indian population in our Jails and prison's are about 60%. LOOK IT UP. I am not racist by any means, but I do get sick of everyone saying that Indians are discriminated against. HORSE SHIT! Yall have TRUST LAND, TRIBAL TAGS, EVEN HAVE YOUR INDIAN ON THE NORMAL STATE TAGS NOW. Yall get free dental care, free medical care, free damn near anything you want. Hell my son is in school, and he is part Indian, but he can't even get help with school supplies. If you look at it from a distance, I would say that white people, black people, and Mexican people are the one's who are getting the shit end of the deal. Yes, It is a terrible thing that happened. And I kinda agree with you, the public needs to get all of the facts before running their mouth. But going about it in a racist manner isn't the way to do it. So stop and think about what you say, and how you say it. It's because of people like you that most "WHITE PEOPLE" as you put it, are sick of dealing with the Indian population. Hope this hit home to you. And just for the record, Riverside is, and as far as I can remember, has always been the school to where all of the kids, who are little hell raisers, who get kicked out of every other school, end up. Blame the parents and the kids of their behavior. Not the WHITE PEOPLE!

Hello! White, black, mexican, and other races get FREE DENTAL FREE MEDICAL FREE FOOD on programs called Soonercare, Food Stamps, and WIC. Yea we have tribal tags but we still pay for them, they're probably cheaper than state tags but they aren't free. We still pay taxes like everyone else, we don't have TAX EXEMPT cards that we can use at the stores and at tax time. As for your childs school supplies, most schools in this area have JOM programs that are suppose to supply them to children, I'd check into your school, if its Carnegie then all they get is one pen and a notebook, at least thats what we got ten years ago. Anadarko schools get alot more stuff than Carnegie, maybe its funding maybe its Carnegie's JOM administrators, who knows. Not all indians get trust land, most have to be inherited from someone, even if you have land it doesn't mean you get millions and millions of dollars.

Back to the subject, we don't know this girls situation, we don't know the circumstances in which she got pregnant. For all we know she could've been raped by someone and leaving her home and going to Riverside was the only way to get away from that person. She could've been scared to tell the matrons she was pregnant because Riverside does not accept students who are pregnant. Not all kids that go to Riverside are bad, some don't have parents or families that can take care of them. There was a case of a boy and girl whose parents died and they were living in a car because they had no other family, and Riverside was a place for them to live and get an education. There are bad kids everywhere, from big cities to small towns. Its not our place to judge this young girl for what happened, we are not God. We weren't there, we don't know what she was going thru, and once this all blows over, whos is going to be there for this girl? Anyone, anyone willing to volunteer time out of their busy schedule to go see this girl if she doesn't have any family, anyone willing to open up their home to this girl for holidays, birthdays, achievements? Anyone wanting to volunteer to mentor this girl to show her that there will be life after this tragedy? Anyone willing to show her that she can be something after she graduates, something other than an alcoholic, drug addict?

1. Blacks & Hispanics make up the majority of our institutionalized population. 2. The criminal justice system is the judge in this country.
