I don't know what fantasy land Owner Ken Ortman lives in, by everyone I spoke with IN THE SAME COMMUNITY wants that Boys Ranch SHUT DOWN !
That LUC Boys Ranch has way too much bad history to try and sugar coat anything now.
Also if everyone calls it escaping.... Shouldn't the facility have a fence with guards LIKE EVERY OTHER JUVENILE DETENTION CENTER ???

Apparently LUC is good enough at what it does to continue providing services year in and year out for decades now.

And it's not a juvenile detention center Billfo. It's a ranch for troubled boys.

Let me clearly state that LUC is not responsible for the murders committed by the two boys who ran away from the ranch. They chose to run away. They chose to murder the elderly couple. They were arrested. They will stand trial.

LUC is facing no legal charges from the murders because they bear no responsibility.

If you don't like LUC, move somewhere else.

The murders are not the only thing that has been happening there. That is just another incident in a long line since they have been open. It is all documented.
