Now it 12... and I'm out... still. No trouble. Hell Mr Lewis, Mr haiter And a few others were afraid I mite have killed someone or come back... but nope... I'm still out. I work at a hospital, I'm a nurse, I own my own house, have 2 cars and I'm doing fine... I just wanna thank Mr Burton, Mr Jones, Mr Kline, Ms binnix, my caseworker Mr Lawson. Those were staff.. Hell I never worked the program Cuz like they told me... don't front... if your gonna be an ass then be an ass all the time And so the day before I turned 21... I was a ass. I was free... I didn't become institutioninlized... I became a man too Damn fast... had No choice. And I was one of the worse kids in San saba... I agree with both what staff have to say and as Well as students. Some staff members really were jackasses but so were students... or y'all like to put it peers. But I've said my piece... I have No regrets... San saba thought me the meaning of not fuckin my life up... and I'll be dammed if I do. Sincerely 0925***... like I'm gonna give my whole tyc #. LOL.
yea, right, i'm really sure you are a success, probably stealing drugs from patients and a CNA not a nurse. animals don't change their stripes and once scum always scum!!!!!!

Wow, so bitter! Some of youth at TYC didn't learn anything from their experience there. Some went right back into the same environment they came from and did go back to a life of crime, some actually have succeeded and made good lives for themselves. TYC wasn't all bad, it did help some youth go to college and finish high school. What most people don't realize about TYC is staff were teaching kids how to do things that are things you and I do everyday because no one ever taught them. I don't feel sorry for the youth that served time in TYC but most were a product of their environment.

Enviroment hell, once you get to an age to know right from wrong it's your choice unless you are retarded. Then they get what they deserve. No one person nor any enviroment makes you sell or use drugs, or rape, rob, or steal. It's everyone's choice to be a human being or act like an animal. Seriosly are you that stupid and a do gooder that likes to get shit on. Give me a break Seriously

Be prepared for Ron Jackson to start sinking in the hole like John Shero. It saddens all of us that they themselves can not even fix problem. They had strayed away the real cause in taking care of the sexual predators to firing all staff with a Misdemeanor of Class A or B. Fine by me if they want the youths to run it themselves, it really saves me the f-----g headache. The people out of Austin is treating us like SHIT as if we are the criminals. No one should be treated like this. You know that Professionalism has gone out the door.
THIS IS CEDRIC JOHNSON I DID multiple YEARS AT JOHN SHERO honestly IF YOU DO THE CRIME..SIT DOWN AND DO THE TIME...ANY FACILITY IS WHAT YOU MAKE IT..

At one time it was "juvy" as you want to call it. Now it is a real prison not a baby sitting service for you little punks that couldn't learn from your mistakes. You are suck a LIAR. Those cells most definately did not have "Hepatitis and dried bodily fluid covered every inch of the 6 by 8 cell." and there was no way the "Staff kept the unit below 60 degrees so it was torture." The place doesn't even have air conditioning. You LIE, LIE, LIE. You little punks make me sick. Learn your lesson and stay out of prison.
I know the truth about it all staff students and everything in between I was a student 3 dorm and yes we acted a fool true us youth were horrible and coditions for staff were unfair but the staff are not innocent not all staff were bad not all students were bad but if you are a front line jco like u say then u know the true nasty condition of the security unit and the whole facility had ac and dish network

I honestly doubt anyone would read this. However, I was an inmate in San Saba and the abuse was indeed very real. I was messed around with by several staff members. Mrs.Nanny being one (yes I am an old head). When I reported her i was demoted from a phase four to a pahse zero. I never reported another staff memeber. It was very frigid in the security unit so whoever said it wasnt is a lie. Plenty of peers who were in security would use crap to paint the walls us as "students" had to clean that mess up. Do you really think it got that clean having us "scum" clean up? Again I am an old head was released over thirteen years ago. The person most responsible for helping me while I was in there was Mr.Lawson my caseworker. He was on six b and he was the only one I trusted. When he found out that I did not in fact commit my crime he was by my side. He was by my side when I failed my exit hearing and he was by my side when I won my appeal. I was an angry and bitter person for even being in there but he pulled me out. There were great staff members who cared about us and then there were ones who could not care any less. In case anyone denies me my tyc# was 0*(#&$@
