Alot of time has elasped since the closing of the brook and I hope that it has not been spend in vain,to all stay strong and have faith in what u believe. Iam doing just that I now live in Monterey bay, ca. Iam pursuing a degree in marketing and working part time. I hope to one day free myself of the political constriant of society, with large sums of money and land and when I do all are welcome!

bbp was a place for forced change from prople that claimed they knew it all and had the answers mi not just saying the things im saynig for nothing ...it was hosent hell there on the outside shell it looked like this good place for anyone but under raps it was nothing but a power struggle and once the kids got a little more than normal the unthikable happened. i belived that it was the staffs idea to honsetly hurt that kid or perhaps take it farther. i mean afer he was pasted away they should have been in jail foe murder u no a restrint is going wrong when the result is death how can u call that a accident with out foul play being invoved. i hope a place like bbp is opened and the staff hired have to prove they are there to help and not for a check or worst. it did save lives but unfortnetly took them to........ joe kolb im out..... oh any one wants to speak on me or my stay be my guest i have dirt on eveyone there i knew. so fuc# it whats up to all my real peers who dont hide shi@ and keep who they are real holla!!!!

I used to work at the Brook back in 1998 in house 4 and 5. It was my first job out of college and it was one of the best experiences of my life. The Brook was there to help kids make better choices in their lives. A place that let's kids get their GED's, has them attend classes for math, science etc.. And then gives them an opportunity to got to community college is not a place I would consider that was all about thumping kids. Not sure what happened in the later years, other than trying to expand the campus and having staff that wasn't trained well. I read a lot of the posts in here and unless you actually know what the Brook was about and worked or attended the Brook you will never know what it is your talking about. I see a lot of former students on here most positive, the others, well they didn't get anything from the program and they are probably blogging from jail and didn't learn a whole lot from a program geared to changing the lives of young men. I believe that part of the tragedy is that the State of Maryland got involved with this program in the late 90's early 2000's. Before they got involved they didn't have these problems......ie.. Victor Cullen!

im glad that bbp is over and done. people there might think that was help but it was more like hell. phuck all the people that say oh it was such a great place,your just scared to tell the real truth. i been to the top of the progam and to the very bottom for some weird stuff but hey what are u gonna do right?i think of bbp as a minimum security jail, with staff who had power issues and could not wait to slam one of us and one up the next guy. just my thoughts could be wrong but i feel im right .....i said it once and ill say it again .. to the staff that killed that boy or watch him die how do you sleep at night! i hope the lord forgives you .... you killer... bbp was such a good place ,now people really got to see what happens behind closed doors ...my prayers to the familiy of the boy god bless

I used to work at BBP. In the beginning it was great, but as we strove for career advancement it got worse. One story I remember clearly is Jim Marak checking in a student returning from a homepass. In the students waist seam were several rocks of "CRACK". I personally saw Jim put the rocks in a cup on his desk, and they remained there for several weeks. I later learned that his "attached to the hip" clone, Tom Davis was recently terminated for what?....He was addicted to crack. So the kids we were trying to help, were actually supplying the drugs to Mr. Davis!! Staff would come to work drunk, and you all know who. He would be sent to an empty dorm room or staff loft to sleep off his drunken stage, only to return to the cafeteria to eat off his hangover. BBP is a beautiful facility and should be used.

I know that journalist have jobs to do or take great pride in their work. How can one write BS with no actual facts. Yes some people don't see the word alleged they see it, but look right pass it.Its a saying that it is more than one side to a story his side her side and the untold side.

I know im extreamly late on the topic...... But Bowling brook has changed my entire demeanor and taught me to survive in society the proper way. I reached the highest rank in BBP, which as my graduate studies. I was allowed to walk the campus alone and lived in my own house. I have been on many off ground trips with mr mark, shadi and mr jessie. I never in a million years thought i would be hearing such negative news involving them. BBP's discipline still tays ith me til this day.

Hey mr boomer, mr darryal, mr ryan.....MR MATT !!!!...... I love you guys man and thanks for teaching and changing me into the man iam today.!!!!.....

ps. has anyone heard from mr Ron.?....(the science teacher)...

BBP wuz better than any facility that I had ever been to. Although there were staff there that did not care about the students, you did have some that truly wanted to help kids like coach Boomer, coach Rob, mr. Doug, mr. Chris, coach Ron.
