    And something needs to be done to create a much safer environment, BUT lest we go overboard here, these "troubled teens" are in that particular facility because they have multiple felonies. They absolutely deserve a safe environment free of abuse, but they are in many cases very dangerous violent felons. You make them sound like 3rd graders who stole a candy bar.

      why the qualifier?

      I'd like some proof regarding these juveniles being "very dangerous violent felons".

      if they are guilty of murder or armed robbery, they are going to be in prison, not a juvenile detention center.
