Why are they there? Are they run aways, foster kids, or throw aways? Children every one has given up on?

As usual the other side of the story has somehow been missed, 1. Croley only had 29 commendations during his time with the Customs Agency. 2. He had helped seize over 15,000 pounds of cocaine, before this was brought up, seems to me that you haters that love this forum to bash anyone and everyone fail to give a full account of many of the facts. Like Croley or not the man has done more for this, ignorant, drug induced, live in the past set of fools than many of our elected officials combined. He has put together several river clean-ups over the last couple of years, to help our tire ridden garbage overflown excuse of a waterway to get back to where it's halfway safe to even enter the Cumberland River. As for the CA, I have personally been to the facility over 10 times since the 1st class came onto the campus, and have seen some of the techniques that they use to get an out of line student to conform, and listen to what I say, it's Disneyland compared to what they have in store for them if they don't get with this program, because for most of this youths if they don't get there lives back in order, then they will be the ones that (we) the tax payers have to keep up when they end up in our jails or worse prison.

Oh yea 29 commendations over a 15 year career would be on average 2 per year, pretty bad when you only get praised that many times during ones work life.

So is Croley the one who has these kids out in the rain doing exercises?

Is he the one who screams nasty things at them?

Can you imagine how much of this went unnoticed before he was caught? Who else is involved at this so-called challange acadamy? Does it have anything to do with that other organization that the ex cop is running?
If children are being treated that way and people are watching and not reporting what these adults are doing to them, then they are just a guilty in my book! Video this crap and take it to the news media! bring some attention to it and expose what's really going on!

I asked Wasssup last night about videoing them, and he said once the instructor realized they were being videoed they ordered the girls back inside.

if you read my statements slower maybe you would have noticed. the main problem i am concerned with is the instructors screaming and curseing in a neighborhood where small children are playing outside, if it where anyone else in the community doing this it would be considered disturbing the peace. second they should have female instructors to discipline the female students not three or four males circling around them screaming at them. they shouldnt run the poor kids till they puke beside a tree then yell at them for disrespecting the tree. they made it clear themselves before opening to the community that they are not supposed to humiliate the students. i could care less about croley. what he has done in the past or will do in the future. all i care about is what i personally have seen these kids go through and i consider what they are going through unethical, immoral, and demeaning.
and that my friend is why i call it abuse and since they are under the age of consent they are children. so therefor it is in my mind child abuse.

Makes you wonder. He lets cocaine go through customs without checking + some known drug addicts/dealers working out there at the academy. There's some food for thought.

There will be more times more than likely, but why not use what video you already have if you were videoing? I'm sure that some of the parents would love to see it!

Did'nt Forrester leave Harlan many years ago with a woman that stole a bunch of money from the solid waste department that the county had back in the day? I think she was at one time married to a Vaughn from Grays Knob.

The concept of the Challenge Academy is a good one. It's the people who have been placed in authority that are questionable.
