That is horrifying, HardToWait. There are many in Missouri even now who would do anything—or avoid anything—to not bring those bad days to the daylight they deserve. I have written to officials, social workers, academics, reporters, so many others. Trying to get info, attention paid to those events. I have been helped a little, stonewalled, and ignored. Most of all, ignored. I welcome ANYONE who can engage with me on those events, from any perspective. Someday, I hope, we will see those boys get the justice they deserve, the respect for what they endured. And it is not too late for the staff and guards to be called into court, one or way or another, if only the court of public opinion.
Rwanda had public hearings and murderers stepped forward, made amends, and that was public rioting, utter breakdown. We can't even bring those men (and women) to a public reckoning for what they admitted to in the freaking press, at the time.

The ones that tortured those young men, can not in my opinion be human, I wish they could be brought to justice, I just can’t get my mind around the torture, I’m sorry for those people who want to sweep it under the rug, because Karma is a Bit*h, I would not want to stand in front of God trying to justify what they did to those poor souls, I am sure the evil ones are rotting in hell. But yes the public needs to know what they did!

My husband said that he was there around 1977. He was curious what happened to the place.
