    Dude you’ve done more for us misfits than anyone I know. I thank you from the bottom of my heart. There is nothing more admirable than one who has a voice for those who don’t.

    To clarify the school of choice was the private school I obtained a 3.5 GPA, Camarillo Cornerstone prior to the lockdown. It was Victory, the reform school that I would not choose to attend. I consider being sent to Victory a kidnapping. I did not make that clear on my interview.

    Thankx for the spotlight on this sometimes frustrating issue! More people need to come forward with their testimony …here is mine…http://www.reddit.com/r/troubledteens/comments/13li9p/dundee_ranch_survivor_tells_of_the_raid_and_riot/

    During my interview, I neglected to mention my book that I’m in the midst of writing, Pieces Of Victory. It is my autobiography of what my life was like before I was sent to a reform school, the torment I endured inside the gates of hell and what my life was like after leaving. What went on behind the gates of an unlicensed Christian reform school will shock America.

    Why is it that we need a license to open a home daycare but not a Christian reform school? These loopholes such as the FACCA, TACCA and the MACCA should be obsolete and a horrible thing of the past but it isn’t. It exists today. These loopholes are ran by the very people abusing these children. It’s time for the government to step in.

    Some of the proceeds of my book will go to SIA-now.org. This is a non-profit organization that empowers survivors and helps them cope with the aftermath of abuse. Change starts with SIA-now.org. We can make a difference.

    Thank you Mark for hearing our voices. This was such an empowering experience for all of the survivors. You are truly a gem.

    FINALLY! Someone being HEARD on this subject. I refer to this manner of abuse as ‘Sanctioned Assault’ because people in positions of authority stonewall and deny.

    “This is an unsubstantiated allegation of a physical response to unknown circumstances,” said the trustee in response to the report of my son – who has autism – having been placed in a chokehold by a Teacher Assistant, lifted off the floor by his throat, then had his faced stuffed into a down-filled ski jacket on the floor.

    It seems the media assess the person as a drama queen and refuse to air/print the story.

    Thank you. Thank you.
