One last thing that I want to share is a Photo Show of our Table Rock Lake Memories of Paul and Sue Brooks and the time that we were able to enjoy before their lives ended so suddenly!!!!!!!!!!

If you past this URL: http://www.photoshow.com/watch/Gn9bm8ZF in a browser you will be able to see pictures of mostly Paul and Beave with my husband and our dog Pepper! It was our memorial that we created to try and get some closure - If that is even possible!

Enjoy the Photo Show - You will not see Sue (Margaret Susan Brooks or myself in the Photo Show - We don't like to be in pictures. Most of these pictures were when Paul Brian Brooks was more healthy and able to still get around. Good Times and definately some smiles.

Just think if this was you're Mom, Dad, Sister, Brother, or any family or dear friends how you might feel!

Again enjoy the Roxio Photo Show - it will take a little bit to come up and it does have sound. Thank You and God Bless!

I visited the LUC Ranch when in Missouri, thought it was a fantastic place. Talked to Kids.
Had a meal there. We currently have an investigation going on into children's homes here in Australia, Salvation Army, sexually abused 500 kids no one prosecuted- Church of England sexually abused, starved, beat with a whip kids, they are currently paid $288,000 a year by the state to look after these kids.
Money is well and truly misappropriated. YMCA are currently being investigated at least they had their sex abusers criminally charged, Catholics massive abuse. To suggest LUC are profiteering on the money they get is stupidity.
I have fostered difficult kids for many years, it is not easy, biggest failing is state education

I am an Australian I visited the ranch, spoke to kids there looked at their facilities etc.
I have looked at a lot of children's homes for extremely difficult kids.
In many countries.
I thought the LUC ranch was exceptional.
The 2 youths who ran away and murdered a couple were in no way the fault of the ranch.
I am a foster carer and personally know of 2 foster carers killed by even younger fostered children.
LUC is a fantastic option for some kids, it won't work for all.
It is unfair to have a go at places because of a specific weakness.
Long ago I had a friend who had worked at the White House kitchen, she had to leave as she was scared or rats and they had a rat problem they couldn't control.
So she had to leave because the greatest country in the world is so incompetent it couldn't control rats in its presidential palace.

I lived there in 1995-1997 and could tell you many horror stories. All the guys I've stayed in contact with continued to have problems after living there. In many cases the exposure lead guys to worse crime than they were originally engaged in. All have had drug problems and many have gone to prison. Some multiple times. There have been other deaths and injuries in earlier years that have gone unreported. the ortmans are close minded religion abusing dictators and fire any employee that tries to help the boys or cares enough to question the injustice that goes on. If you rock the boat a little bit your gone. I hate to see people have now been killed. in my time there neighbors houses were broken into, cars stolen in attempts to runaway. this happened multiple timed in the two years I lived there. Shut down luck! Or have it run by fair and moral people!!!!!

So it's LUC's fault that you and others are bad seeds? You know, you can polish a turd all you want, but it's still a turd.

Bullshit. They were given a chance to change their lives, but instead chose a life of crime. That's on them, not LUC.
All have had drug problems and many have gone to prison. Some multiple times.
More evidence that they are bad seeds. Again, that's not LUC's fault. They tried to help. As they say, you can lead a horse to water but you can't make him drink.

Disgrunted employee or not. Something is not right at this place. I am volunteer for a NGO in Europe called "Domestic prisoners of Conscience". Our job is to scan the internet for news about foster families, group homes, boarding schools which leave the children in a worse position after they have left than before they arrived.
We have already reported LUC boys Ranch to Fornits Wiki which is a database covering more than 30 countries and the further investigation will be carried out by local support groups.
We are among the groups who have forced very large organizations like WWASP and Aspen Education Group to close several of their programs and we will see to that boys who have been at the ranch leaving less satisfied with their stay will be allowed to tell why they feel like they do.
The truth about this place is out there somewhere. When two boys aged that young seem to be willing to do terrible acts just to escape a place, we must look on what made them do it. Otherwise the local community will never be safe because the boys will be leaving the ranch at some point. They can be held back there forever.
Not just terrible acts. ANYTHING to escape even if it means being pulled from the ranch. ANYTHING.

This hell hole sounds just like the ones we have in Florida.

If they don't belong to the same groups they are sure all trained by the same groups.

We had the same type of ranch not far from Disney World near Orlando, Florida. It was a spin off of the Mel Sembler - Straight, Inc. It was Mel Sembler big Repub donor and friends of the Bushes who got the religious exemptions for these houses of horrors they dare call schools.

Green Isle Boys Ranch was a pedophile haven run by Gary Borders from 1989 until the brutal rapes of five little boys ages 12-15 by a 17 year old boy named Tyler Anthony Jackson who was later found pictured with Gary Borders during the timeline of the rapes. Insiders said Gary Borders and his friends would groom the older boys 16-17 years and teach them to groom the younger boys. When well connected republican big shots visited Disney in Orlando they would make arrangement for them to pic out a boy of their choice. They had state cottages near by when the political big shots would take the boys.

Before he lift office in 2006 Florida governor Jeb Bush made arrangements to reward Gary Borders for his service to their criminal empire by appointing him sheriff of Lake County just north of Orlando.

Thousands of blog entries showing Sheriff Borders and his friends in their so called justice system (only after news of the last rapes leaked out 3 months later) faked up and arrest, prosecution and community control of the rapist while all along he was in another near by county continuing his acts of violence on others.

They claim to have closed Green Isle Ranch but the problem is it belong to BRIDGES OF AMERICA a Florida Department of Corrections vendor with dozens of other juvenile homes, prison ministries and half-way houses collecting 10's of millions of Florida tax dollars every year while continuing to abuse anyone they can get their hands on.

I had a friend that came back from active duty in Afghanistan. He went there to interview for a position and when he left he never looked back. He said that place has youth with terrible problems and that the staff is under constant threat. He said the security is extremely lacking. He said he didn't feel safe there at all. This is coming from a recent veteran of the war over in the sand box.


Lmao. I'm sorry man but that's the biggest load if shit I've ever heard in my life. Your buddy looked at it from the other dude if the fence. Yet again, I lived a LUC for three years of my life. Staff threatened us. Physical harm was used against us to do things that we wouldn't do. But would say "we're just helping you do this or that."

Those boys didn't need to murder two people to escape. They had already escaped the compound!
The ranch didn't cause those boys to commit murder. They did it because they are bad. They were bad before being placed at the ranch. If you want to find out what caused them to do it, look at their character, or lack of it.
And since you're on another continent, mind your own damn business. We wash our own dirty laundry around here, and we don't need any foreigners poking their noses into our business.
First off, shut the fuck up. You have no idea what you're talking about. Do you personally knows those two individuals and known them for years.?! Hmmm.. No. NO ONE IN THIS WORKD KNOWS WHAT REALLY HAPPENED AND WHY THEY DID IT. Okay.? Great. Put a cork in it you uneducated retard. Anyway yes, they were bad before they came. Every boy is that's why they get sent there...? It's not a fucking beach party. But they made a choice to so the things they did. They'll have to live with the consquencs and refers of this for the rest of their lives.

On the other thread you admitted that you were
already a "vengeful criminal" before you went to LUC. I suppose you blame LUC for your lack of character even before you ever heard of the place.
No, you had a huge disregard for human life and authority figures long before you ever went to LUC. Sounds to me like you're just a bad seed.
<quoted text>
LUC isn't responsible for your criminal actions. You should have been sentenced to prison. You were lucky you were given a chance at LUC rather than being abused as a sexual toy by the big bucks in the prison system. Be grateful.
<quoted text>
Uh no, you did a fine job of that all by yourself. Maybe one day you'll take responsibility for your own actions and stop blaming others for the things you brought on yourself. We call that growing up.
Agree with most of what you said. Except the voys are t allowed and not have the resources to "file" a complaint to the prosecuting attorney.

Piss off numb nuts. I'll post whatever I damn well please on this thread.

I don't know why your panties are in a wad anyway. You said the same thing I have this entire thread. "yes, they were bad before they came" and "they made a choice to do the things they did".

Bingo. Others on this thread want to blame LUC for the murders when it was the boys that did it.

End of story.

It doesn't cost anything to file a complaint with the prosecuting attorney.
