So, N.B.: this youth is being sent to prison without any formal charges because DCF has a statute to put children in its “care” in prison on their own authority, without any charges at all, for the sake of “treatment” (!).
They are asserting this power here because this youth allegedly fought a guard. She allegedly fought a guard because two of the guards fucking ganged up and grabbed her and tried to “bear hug” immobilize her to keep her from walking away to somewhere she wanted to go.
The guard wanted to stop her from walking freely away because she is an inmate confined in a DCF juvie-prison “locked-treatment” “training school,” which she is forcibly forbidden to leave.
She is an inmate of a DCF juvie-prison “locked treatment” “training school” because DCF has asserted custody over her, or, as the youth’s “defenders” put it, thinking they are helping, “DCF is this youth’s parent” (the Corps is mother, the Corps is father), and as such, they claim, they are “obligated” (!) to lock her up in the name of “programming and treatment.”
DCF took custody, locked her up and started forcing this “treatment” on her without her permission and against her will, because they were going to save her from being “a victim of serious, longstanding abuse.”
So, you know, good job on that so far, y’all, I’ll bet prison will really help.
In case you were wondering this story is like everything I hate about the liberal state, rolled into one dystopian package and labeled helpfully “FOR HER OWN GOOD.”
A youth under the care of the Department of Children and Families has been transferred to an adult prison with no criminal charge pending — a rare action that has triggered strong opposition from the state child advocate’s office and the youth’s public defender.
