Why doesn't anyone care about the abuse, neglect and torture of those
children at the Columbia Mississippi Training School? Don't we know that those children are going to grow up and be apart of our society? I don't know about you guys but I would like to get those children the care and help that they need now rather than later. If those children don't get the care to deal with the abuse, neglect and torture that they endured now, I don't think we are going to be ready to deal with it later. When the children start to express the aggression and anger that will be shown to many unsuspecting Innocent people that don't know what is going on, "Mississippi is going to have hell on their hands", and then the State of Mississippi is going to be trying to give these children the death penalty which is lethal injection.

Thank God they closed this evil place. I ran away from home because my father was a pedophile in the mid sixties and was caught and sent to Columbia after attempting suicide. We worked like mules, were beaten with boards, carrying around the blood blisters for weeks. scrubbed floors with toothbrushes, etc. We were allowed to smoke and they sold us cigarettes at their on campus store, which gave me the opportunity to develop a major addiction at 13 and took me years to get rid of, but not before it affected my health. I felt punished and brutalized by them for just trying to get away from a twisted father, who has molested my two older sisters. I suffer from severe depression today and have my whole life. I will never forgive the state of Mississippi for putting me in that hellhole, but I am so glad that it is closed.
