One thought on “About

  1. I recently watched this movie and was shocked how close I could have come to being scared straight though one of these programs. As a child that was in foster care until the age of 21, I was sometimes threatened with being shown what happens to kids to misbehave or cause problems in society. Of course I never actually thought that someone could do that to a child but I never ended up seeing that side of the government. I had the support of some close teachers’ and friends who kept me off that path. I knew police officers’ who I greatly appreciate showing me proper dicipline to keep me from suffering the same fate as man other kids. I even toured a women’s correctional facility for adults and needless to say I was scared @#$%less. I even hid behind the officer that I am still friends with to this day but it gave me an insight on what I could have turned out to be if I hadn’t had the support that I did. Of course you can only threaten a child so much before it comes to be just that a threat and not a promise.
    This movie showed me how much being in that situation can royally screw with you. At one point in time I was taking a criminal justice class and I had to make a Juvenile Detention Center of my own as a project. I know how hard it can be to get those facilities to even tell you how big the rooms are that the residents are subjected to, what is in them, and about how many a facility can fit. I tried three times with three different facilites to get project research information and only one would give me any real information – a basic idea of where I could look up the information. I was told all three times that I could not by law be given even such basic information. Just thinking about that and imagining being in the facility I can’t imagine not coming out of that unscathed.
    I am happy to hear that Amanda Lorah is getting the help for the PTSD but I feel that the government should have taken responsibility for what they caused her to develop and given some form of apology. I know how it feels to develop something that you didn’t have before because of traumatic experience, even if it isn’t through the same experience. I feel sorry for the mother who lost her son. I hope she can live on knowing that some justice was served. No parent should outlive their child.
    I believe all children in danger of getting into the same situation should be made to watch this and realize that even the smallest things can land them in a much deeper rabbit hole that can, and will, scar you for life. Not just their childhood but their adulthood as well, their education, their family, and their community.
    Thank you for making this documentary.
