Great job by the school of "downplaying" the incident. Students arrested, students attack male and female teachers, students running around school using profanity...and it wasn't a big deal? Way to go!!

i've worked at that school for a couple of years as a counselor...funny they called them that...we were always considered "youth care workers"! a lot of their problems are the staff!! they get these big shot males who think they something else "restraining" these boys and a majority of the female workers are..well...i'm going to say it...sluts...if they don't like a certain boy...they'll score the crap out of them! don't get me wrong...some of those boys are bad and have issues...but good Lord...it was our job to help them out and teach them...not score them and "restrain" them bc you didn't like them or what they said to you the week before! also, if a male counselor had a thing for a female counselor and a resident did something mean to that female...that male would take up for his "woman" and score or make it bad for that resident! they need counselors who are committed to helping those PSB residents...not just there for a pay check. i reapplied back there a couple of weeks ago...no luck..linda said leso just "filed" my application...keep getting those "great" YCW leso & langley...through the grape vine...a 3rd shift female worker was recently fired for having a "fling" w/ another resident..and it WAS NOT Ruth or Lara either...they're not there anymore since 2007 & part of 2008!!!

WOW.....another failed generation of youth.

Just reading this tells me alot about the youth placed there, as well as the staff it seems.

Prisons; built them, they will come!

Really... have you lived there? Did you see what us kids had to deal with? Don't talk about something you don't know about. I'm speaking from experience... I was one of the six that were arrested. You only read what the papers told you. You know what I mean?

No, I havent lived there, I kept my nose clean so i could live at home with my family and not in some home for troubled youth.

yes, I have been to and in this facility, I have witnessed first hand the failures and their behaviors. Your there for a reason, just like prison, its not supposed to be luxorious, friendly etc.

I wouldnt be bragging about being of the ones arrested, I'd be more embarrased, as being arrested is seen as a bad thing, not a good thing.

yea its funny if you knew what you were talking about then you would know that the school isn't just for delinquents. I was a ward of the state which means i had no family and i was placed there. along with a few others whom i talk to today and they sucssefull one whom i hang with everyday in new york. Its people like you that make us kids when we were younger fuckin hate adults. People like you just read the drama. But would you ever sit down and take time out of your day to here the real story? probably not. Your probably some rich guy/woman siting on a 2 million dollar house and four cars and a nice wife and kids and don't see the real world. I dont feel bad for my me for mom and dad abusing me and molesting me i sucked it up and fuckin moved on. Its life man. But for people like you to say the things you do you have know life. You think these places arnt corrupt? Ive been in 4 different ones since then. we used to get hit on by punk staff who thought they were bigger and badder and im sorry but to this day I don't let no one not even family push me around. You catch my drift?

ASnd for your info you took me wrong. Im not bragging about getting arrested. Funny all those charges stuck wit me and i was 16 when i got them and im 20 now. Yea im real proud of that. There you go again asuming things. Get a life and a wake up my man.

I assumed correctly for the most part, the one thing I was dead nuts on about was education wasn't one of your high points in life.

Reading what you just posted points out how dumb todays youth really is.

all i will say to all i've read.stop blameing other for all the mistakes, and messing up your future.there is one place you will end up in.PRISON;someday MAYBE you will realize the bad choices in life you've made. My parents were alcoholics; i grew up with beatings, being hungry all the time. But, i made a choice to not relive the past, but to love myself and want the best, and to work hard doing it.We all have choices, don't make the wrong one's

LMAO....your to funny..people like you i have no time because I have become succesfull. Didnt think id even live to be 18..but look at where i am now. And for your info i did grad high school with a real diploma.. So yea.. and you know what ive become a strong person since then. It went to not being my fault when i was younger for mom and dad doing the things they did to me, to being a teenager and things being my fault and den to being sucessfull.. Its people like you that have no idead what its like to live in my shoes. And be glad im mature now. cause had this been abt a year or two ago i would of ofund your ass and well lets say it wouldnt of been nice.. Im not hear to talk shit im hear to just say that you cant assume every student in that school is in there cause of them. There are a select few who cant help it. And i dont feel bad for myself for the things that happened to me or my blame my past. I made the choices i did after i got a lil older. But dont talk on me cause like i said you have never and will never live my life.. There fore dont judge me.. Im not judging you.

Nester,

I do feel for you and what happened to you as a youngster, your parents did you wrong if what all you say is true. Its your word only, not saying I dont beleive you, Im just saying, without the other side of a story, I'm suspect of such a story. You saying you went on to graduate with a real diploma almost impressed me, until I realized you cant spell nor speak like a successful person. We all know dimplomas are like candy these days, meaning any one can get one, it's unlike the days past where they were earned, and not given.

A succesfful person does not use childish, ghetto-ish slang spellings such as 'abt". That solidifies my thought that the dumbing down of America still continues.

As for you finding us and well, things being different tells me and everyone else you still haven't grown out of your past, your still a wanna be thug who hasn't learned a damn thing.
Once you can carry on a conversation with "real" words, and without insinuating your gonna whoop someones butt like a thug, come back and try to converse with the once who have done it correctly and continue to on a daily basis.

Oh by the way, Im not a millionaire, with four cars and whatever else MTV fantasy world you think I live in. Im just a everyday guy who is sick of the sob stories being told about how bad someone has it, and the system is cruel. Life is cruel, its called Life, its not meant to be easy, you have to work at it.

My son was a resident during the incident at Paradise some of the boys that caused the trouble were in fact trouble and brought on a lot of the "STAFF issues" themselves. Right or wrong the staff should not behave inappropriately but in the real world...kids should not spit, cuss at, or act in disrespectful ways to adults.

The Problem is not so much the staff that are PAID to deal with the problem OR the kids that put themselves in these situations and I am sorry but ward of the state or NOT you were placed there by the court cause you screwed up or by the county you were from because you refused to get along in foster care....AND DONT give me the crap about how awlful foster parents are I have been one of those for 13 years and love and charish each of the THREE boys that we have had as though they were my own and all three are doing well!

So the blame lays at the feet of employees that are enabled by a broken system and at the feet of kids that refuse any kind of authority figure and fill themselves with hate. The blame for all of this is must also fall on we as a society.
