The loopholes the rich have but endangers us common people

In justice on April 27, 2018 at 06:14

In Vermont, they now release a young man who planned a school shooting. It was some kind of legal stuff, which prevented them from convicting him from his planned actions, which he had detailed in a journal, you still can find online if you search hard for it.

The problem with this case is that it took so long to take him into custody. Him parents did at an early point discover his plans but instead of going to the police, who could have helped them putting him into a state hospital where real medical expertise would have been to his disposal combined with the fact that such places are fenced off and they also have straitjackets etc. so he would have been kept there, they made the choice of a private residential treatment center when he was so close to reach the age of 18, where he was able to sign himself out.

To make matter worse, the specific treatment center was founded with help of former employees of Turn-about Ranch now known for the murder case.

Where teenagers arriving at Turn-about Ranch are forced to sit in a stone circle exposed to the heat in Utah, the students arriving at Ironwood Maine are forced to sit in a stone circle trying to keep the fire going to keep them warm in the coldness of Maine until they have made the confessions, the parents expect them to provide under the stress and pressure, they have hired the employee to provide to their children. I have no second thought using the term “torture” about this treatment. Had we treated one of the insurgents we caught back when I was in the service, we would have faced a court-martial when this treatment became known to our superiors.

But the counselors at Ironwood Maine never addressed his plans about the school shootings. How qualified were they? We know that it in fact was another former victim of Ironwood Maine who made the choice of going to the authorities. It was not the employees at Ironwood Maine. I am not saying that they knew. I do not believe that they are qualified in other aspects than bullying the teenagers they have in their custody.

Why are Maine not investigating them? We have to remember that a former employee of Ironwood Maine were arrested charged with four counts of gross sexual assault. This should have led to tighter supervision with such a residential treatment center.

In the school shooting case the teenager charged with the school shooting attempt signed himself out once he turned 18 becoming legal adult of age. The combination of him not having been treated for his real problem added with the post traumatic stress from the treatment at Ironwood Maine made him a real threat to the Fair Haven Union High School. Had a former victim of Ironwood Maine not alerted the authorities, it could have ended it with a tragedy.

What remains in this case beside giving the wannabe school shooter real treatment is to look into all those private treatment centers. Remember the Affluenza case? The luxury rehab the parents were allowed to buy for their son, did not seem to help, so now he is serving time instead. If this wannabe school shooter had poor parents, the high school students would have felt more secure. Local authorities speak of an environment of fear. Many students remain home instead of going to school while they are treatment for anxiety issues related to the threat against their school. Of course all these young people living in fear will boost both the medical industry and a lot of private treatment centers but it should not be so.

So close the loopholes allowing parents to choose out-of-state treatment places, so each state can monitor local treatment centers closely and give the local school district space to develop their own treatment systems for students who need it.

And finally address the source of how school shooters start out. Hit hard on bullying attempts. No school system in the world should allow students to be marginalized. In Denmark we have friday bars at the school where students can drive beer or wine after school, so they at least have this motive to attend school. In the Friday bars students open up and start talk, giving others an insight and understanding of their lives.

I am parent myself. No parent should ever fear or experience a school shooting at the school their children attend. It must stop now.


The murderers who are never prosecuted but earn a lot of money

In justice on April 22, 2018 at 06:31

Clay Brewer killed a man. There is no doubt about that. After having been forced into a stress position for hours at Turn-about ranch where new arrivals to the program are forced inside a stone circle to sit until they have confessed to so-called sins like being picky about food, drinking, partying etc. he snapped and killed an employee.

Bhad Bhabie who made a career out of her placement at Turn-about Ranch spoke about the murder in an interview and stated that the killed employee was one of the foot people in the program who actually cared about the teenagers who was forced into this private detention camp.

How were some of the other kids in there?

Anyone from prostitutes to — I was one of the worst kids there. There was some kids who didn’t deserve to be there, but they were. It was so sad. If I made enough money to buy that place, I would buy it twice. Just to save some of the kids in there. There was some crazy ass shit in there.

Some kid killed someone in there. That’s how bad it is. Kid killed one of the night staff. And they don’t tell you nothing! There are two places there: where you start off and where you end. The kids who were starting off, they sent them upstairs and told us, “Oh they just have to stay here.” We were like, “What the fuck?” A day later we find out this guy dies. And he was actually one of the staff that gave a fuck.

(Bhad Bhabie to Billboard)

At some point the courts in Utah will hand down a sentence to Clay Brewer, but there are people responsible out there who made a load of money sending him to Turn-about Ranch.

Turn-about Ranch are not equipped to deal with hard-born criminals even when they treat the teenagers at the ranch like such. If you look at their website and read between the lines, they are looking for parents who are easy to fool into believing that their teenagers need treatment where they actually are just normal teenagers who are caught doing what most teenagers do and get away with or neglected teenagers who are unlucky enough in life to have parents who are more busy dealing with their own problems in life like divorce or various dependencies of alcohol or prescription medication so they have no time for their children.

My claim is that professionals met with Clay Brewer before he came to Turn-about Ranch. Professionals who should have picked up the signals which would have told them that this boy had something inside him which could make him dangerous if he was put into a stressful situation.

Most likely his parents consulted a local therapist who had some interviews. The problem with some local therapists are they really do not want to deal with their patients but rather focus on the referral fee they get from places like Turn-about Ranch if they are sent a patient.

Did the police or prosecutor request the therapist to come in for an interview? Did they ask how the parents found Turn-about Ranch? It is real important to prevent future murders. For a long time focus has been to prevent children from dying inside residential programs. We are talking about more than 150 deaths in wilderness programs or residential treatment centers. There are testimonial blogs out there showing that. But what about the half naive people who are hired in by the non-caring program owners. Do they deserve to be killed or beaten just because they cannot see the big picture? At a wilderness program like Redcliff Ascent a group of teenagers beat up the counselors and ran off some years ago.

It is really important that teenagers who can become violent are screened before they enter the program and are sent to other places or simply left on their own until the police who are equipped to deal with violence take care of them.

I have no doubt about that the parents of Clay Brewer think that they got a poor advice about having their son sent to Turn-about Ranch. It was not what they had in mind. Something need to change because it is not the first time children or employees are hurt and it certainly will not be the last time, relatives of employees will lose a father, mother, brother or child.

Beside the therapist or educational consultant back home who now sits and sip to a glass of wine laughing and counting the money earned for referring Clay Brewer to Turn-about Ranch what about the transporters?

If you read the article by Nadya Labi called Want your kid to disappear? you will learn there is an entire industry out there who are tasked by the parents to remove the child from the home and drive them to places like Turn-about Ranch. We are talking of an industry where background checks are not a requirement but still they get the order to remove a teenager in the middle of the night and be around them alone on the roads for many hours. How many things of inappropriate nature can happen during such a ride?

Were they interviewed by the police or the prosecutor? What did happen? Not long ago the police found out that a now-closed so-called therapeutic boarding school called CEDU allowed a serial killer to have free access to their campus and as result several teenagers are missing to this day. Of course back then there were no background checks of employees. At Silverado Academy in Utah – also closed today, the police found employees with false papers.

So the employees are checked today but because the youth transport firms operated across state lines, they place their headquarter in a state where legislation is not in place.

A deal is being made in the murder case as far as the newspapers write, but there are empty seats beside Clay Brewer which should have been occupied with the people who are also partly responsible for Clay Brewers presence at Turn-about Ranch.

James Woolsey should not have met such a dangerous teenager like Clay Brewer.

So whatever the reason is for the murder:

  • The stress position and structure of the program
  • The local therapist who were more interested in the referral fee
  • the youth transporters who might have been inappropriate
  • or maybe even the intake administration at Turn-about Ranch who accepted him without looking at the papers.

One thing is clear. He did not come home to his family.

Does his death not mandate a full investigation?


What is the real motive for this school shooting

In justice on February 23, 2018 at 08:49

There is no excuse for shootings. No excuse at all.

That does not mean that we need to investigate what took place. Investigation takes time. Look at the murder of Swedish prime minister Palme back in 1986. New details appear. The police seemed to have bribed a vitness. Also in the school shooting we need to investigate the role of police and local security. Why did they not rush in and face the shooter? They were trained better than the shooter and might have given him a limp so he was not so mobile which would have reduced the number of victims.

This does also mean that we need to keep the criminal alive. No death penalty but life with possible parole. They need to investigate his illness, the drugs he was perscribed. Maybe all people taking these drugs need to be ordered to hand their guns in to the police until treatment is over.

Due to him having a mental illness, they also need to investigate how he was treated. Many teenagers who have been in residential treatment suffer from PTSD.

Whatever the cause he should remain locked up, alive for many many years until he dies in prison. Studying him in prison is the only way he can pay a little back to the society. It will never be enough compared with the suffering the relatives goes through but with all these guns in circulation more control is needed and he is the perfect case to study.

My town Aarhus was the center of the only school shooting in Denmark. A disgrunted eternaty student faced pressure as Denmark was putting pace on the progress of students so they either graduated or dropped out.

Today young people are put under pressure as never before by the state forcing them to finish their studies faster then ever in the entire history of Denmark. The result has been a boom in the number of young Danes suffering from depression and other mental issues. Also the drug use is on the raise after the Universities and other schools tried to lower the consumption of alcohol among the students.

In my mind it is sadly only a question of time before we see the next school shooting in Denmark.

As for the United States, it is a different matter. I am so happy that I way back turned my fathers offer down…

Peace-agreement in Denmark

In justice on December 15, 2017 at 05:59

It seems that the supreme command of both the youth gangs Brothas and Loyal to Familia are ready to enter a peace-agreement.

This seems to be a possibility after private negociators have used the last months cease-fire in Copenhagen to bring the leaders together.

I cross my fingers. It is a light in a dark time. All the families in the areas affected by the gang war has missed seing their children playing in the street, sport clubs have been shut down, people have been confined their apartments. Short to say – life had come to a halt.

What is left is for the gangs to tag the areas they control in an orderly manner, so people know who the authorities on the streets are.

As for the Danish central government they are not a party in the peace-agreement. Their role has been limited to send police-cars through the area giving the illusion that they are in control. But the over-extended policeforce where most of the Danish police force are stationed along the borders because a number of countries in the European Union are neglecting their duties to take in the number of immigrants they were supposed to house just like we do, cannot be the local cop you go to if you have problems.

Instead the local population have to go the gangs who are offering protection for a small fee. It should not be like that but it is the best we can do because we on European level have been let down by countries like Poland and Hungary.

I really will pray that the peace-agreement will stick. Otherwise I have to point out that embassies are warning against the gang war trying to keep tourists safe:

Security Message for U.S. Citizens: Gang Activity in Copenhagen (United States of America, Department of State, U.S. Embassy in Denmark)

Ceasefire in Copenhagen ?

In justice, politics on November 13, 2017 at 05:47

The Danish newspapers and television programs have informed us that the staff at the two major gangs (Brothas and Loyal to Familia) have made an agreement about 1 months ceasefire, leaving the room for negociation more permanent peace.

It is happy news for the citizens of the central Copenhagen which has been the battleground for the ongoing gang war.

Now they can leave their homes for shopping, their children can play safely in the streets.

The Danish politicians were caught dumbfooled not realizing that they are no longer in charge in these areas. While the local population had no election for self-govermance like Catalonia in Spain, the reality is that they were not invited to the mousque where the negociations took place.

They are sitting in our parliament and in the cityhall totally out of touch with events taking place less that 10 kilometers from their job.

Is Denmark consisting of parallel communities where we have politicians we elect every forth year eating and talking nonsens out of touch with ordinary people?

Yes. That is the reality.

Now they make cuts on public transport making it difficult to come to the cities if you are a comuter without access to cars. Large parts of Denmarks no longer offer real jobs. They used to have jobs but the jobs have been moved to the Eastern part of Europe where countries have been better to fence their countries off against the immigrantion allowing them to operate with lower costs and the firms than move there because they can pay less to the workers, when the workers do not pay as much in taxes.

There are poor Danes living outside the citities who have to go by train or bus to the major cities for jobs. They live another life compared to people in the citities. They are a kind of parallel community also. A TV-documentary about people in the city of Nakskov should be sold abroad to inform foreigner how Denmark also is.

Then there are people in parts of the major cities who only can see the gangs as their line of work because they never in a million years will be able to get a good education just because their parents are poor.

All these grous our politicians choose not to know anything about.It is their choice. I will more in blog entries to come.

I know it. I should not rant in a blog entry with good news.

Let us celebrate the peace in our times.
