When youth ayslums pay the police to not to act

Years ago MontanaPBS made the documentary “Who’s Watching the Kids?” about a private school called “Spring Creek Lodge” who paid the local police to be extra alert when students ran away. The patrol car and uniforms were financed by the school.

In one case the local police wouldn’t help the authorities in another state to get a girl back home so the girl could contribute to an ongoing investigation.

Thankfully Spring Creek Lodge is closed today. It didn’t do anything good for anybody.

Here in Denmark we also have such a scandal. In the case against Solhaven it is mentioned that local police officers received gifts from the now closed youth facility “Solhaven”. While the police is not finished investigating themselves they acknowledge that something was wrong.

We need to protect kids better. Only a couple of years ago a Danish therapist received 60 days of prison suspended for having sex with an underaged girl who were confined to a cottage on the orders of local social services. A girl who was in need of help was molested and the criminal got off with almost no punishment.

One thing is when employees molest children. They are often the most lowpaid people possible with no kind of relevant education making them eligible for the job, so in many cases it will turn out bad and ugly. But then the police should secure the children just as they do with other citizens. That is why it was a scandal for the state of Montana that the Thompson Falls police department was bribed. That is why it is a scandal for the state of Denmark if it turns out that the police in Aalborg was bribed.
