Hey buddy-kids arn't animals-they are human and make mistakes just like you and me. Like the saying goes-you need to walk in someones shoes before you judge them!

cops and guards around juvenile deliquents should be allowed to shoot the escaping kids and ask questions later.

how dare you talk about these young men like this, you have no idea what they have been through, and some like my son are not bad kids. These kids grow up without fathers, some with parents who are not financially able to prvide better options, and so instaed of addressing the real issues they hose kids or teens in places like this. Judge Shiverllo screwed my sons head up.....corrupt judges...using our kids who are hurting for monetary gain is unacceptable. They should spend a year at one of these places!!!!

I have a few things to say. My son is a cadet at NWA and I think they are trying VERY hard to help my son. The staff has shown great interest in every aspect of my sons life. I'm reading here all these terrible things that supposedly happen there. I'd like to ask these people how they know what staff does at this facility? As a visitor, and a parent, my child and I visit right in the main lobby conference room. I have no knowledge of what happens behind the doors to those dorms, and I don't think you do either. The only way I know anything is from what my son tells me. Like all kids at NWS, my sons behavior put him in this place and I don't believe him as far as I can throw him. He's not a violent kid, or a real criminal, but troubled, yes. And for the first time, he is being held ACCOUNTABLE for his actions..at NWS. He is being MADE to follow rules, dicipline, consequences, etc, and he HATES it and if he thought it would benefit him in any way to circulate rumors of coke bottles up the hineys, staff having sex with each other, etc, he'd claim it! No cadet there is going to say the place is great and well-needed for a positive life outcome! They're going to tell you they were choked and insulted and raped and anything else they can think of so they might be taken out of there...remember, probably in alot of cases, these kids are master manipulators and artistic liars. My son is. I love him to death, but he knows what he's doing.

And this is directed to all you high and mighty people out there that love to judge these troubled children....you are shallow. And by the time these "animals" work through their problems and come out on "the other side", the character that develops within them through their struggle will put all of yours to shame.

It is in hard times that we really learn. These kids may be "nothing" to you right now. But ALL of them are struggling. Most of them WILL figure things out for themselves and the strength, knowledge, power, and wisdom they have gained (in a few short years, takes most a lifetime)will enable them to great success. At least these animals are engaged in a process of change...all you f-ing people disgust me. Its people like you, that kick people, children, when they are down, that greatly contribute to society's decay.

Wow, you sure know how to pass the blame around. Do you take any blame for the position your son is in?

Maybe it would help you to visit your local library and read some biographies/auto biographies of the many people, born into terrible circumstances who wanted better for themselves and rose above it. Never spending a day in lock up etc. Don't soft peddle your child or the others...they will remain in that lifestyle forever if you do. Place blame where it is due..on the offender. Hope your son can "man up" some day and make something of himself. He has wasted a lot of time.

bobby, all i have to say to you that you are scum. and lenox please even though you worked there youd think youd share the upside of the situations that you got to see kids going down the wrong path change for the better your categorizing all those young kids there to be "animals" you and bobby both so this goes out strictly to you two i have a very good friend whom i await letters from that is attendind there and i would like you to know that i feel truly special being able to watch him change and i know hes strong enough to come out a better person they are humans and every human makes mistakes if you dont believe that then please go back to your faraway planet because nobody wants you here when i saw this last night i pawned on whether to keep my mouth shut or not but i wont stand for it and for the mother who was on here i want her to know that despite what others say it wasnt her fault what her children did they made choices as everyone does in life and i know i have donw some truly wrong things because i miss my father everyday and its hard for me to understand why he made the choices he did but i will never in my lifetime call him bad man i havent seen him in 12 years and i still love him with everything inside me he is a human andhe made mistakes he is living with the conseuquences slush- why would she need to take blame? she cannot change what her son did how is that her fault the real matter is that hes there hes changing and getting better maybe slowly but surely but he is how dare you try to make this woman feel bad you should be ashamed as should bobby and lenox you're judging these juveniles and when judgement day comes God will look down on you for saying what you did for judging people you knew nothing about and for basically kicking them while they were down and showing them no hope of a better life i agree with chuck.

Funny you should say that, I am in the library all the time and read more biographies and autobiographies than you can probably count. I must disagree that I am soft-peddling my son or the others. If you read what I wrote, it says that my son is there as a result of his actions and behaviors, getting dicipline, being held accountable for his actions, etc. He deserves to be there. This soft-peddling mother PUT her son in Northwestern. He wasn't ordered there by a judge or probation officer. He was never charged with a crime and has no criminal record. But you are right. He has wasted alot of time and I pray he does "man up." Thank you for your comment.

just to tell you something there is no reason to behave in such a manner a lot of the population grew up like that and you don't see us acting up escaping from custody just so you don't have to learn you're lesson without lessons people run wild doing whatever they want and if your son acts like that it is your fault for not teaching him those critical lessons now just grow up and stop looking at these things if you don't really want to know what people really think be mature
