I feel so bad for the residents at JRC. This is most likely their way of crying out for help. Sadly, the truth is they are better off in jail then back at the JRC. At least they have 3 meals and are not being abused or "shocked". I can't for the life of me understand why that place still exists. Shame on them and shame on their parents who placed their children in that environment!

these kids get three meals and were never approved for the shocks so they were never shocked. this place exists because faculty in other places wont deal with kids that attack them and destroy things for no damb reason. jrc is the only place that doesnt care enough about their staffs safety to take these kids in. every one says that this place should be shut down but nobody offers any solution for these kids. who is going to take care of these kids? their own families are afraid of them. so unless you people have some solutions you should probally keep your mouths shut
