    In 1978-1979 I was at the facility in Alexander, I was placed in handcuffs and leg shackles with the chains intertwined and was placed in the quiet room(10 by 10 room) in the dark on a cold tile floor in the dark, naked, without bathroom facilities for literal months at a time. Department of Justice still refuses to investigate, I was placed there at 11 years old from independence county for assault and battery that I did not commit, my reward for trying to walk away from a fight at school. I've had PTSD over it now for 35 years. Is this justice?

    I am sorry for your troubles, Johnny. It must have been so traumatic. Maybe by telling your story, you are helping someone else. Violence is disorienting and contagious. Your life is still precious.

    I recently passed by this beautiful, run down facility and was told of its past. Why can't a place like this be used for jail overcrowding in all of the counties across Arkansas? Seems a shame that this grand place is going to ruins.

    I am writing as a very concerned parent. Our son was placed with DYS (The Division of Youth Services) in March earlier this year (2015). DYS began by transferring him from the youth services detention center in Batesville (where he spent 36 days), to the Pine Bluff facility (where he spent approximately 2 weeks), and then he was transferred to the Alexander facility without ANY communication between the facilities, the child's father and myself. We haven't heard from my sons probation officer or DHS since court in Searcy, Arkansas in March 2015, or his Attorney Phyllis Worley which only concerns us more. The last contact our family (my husband) recieved was from a DYS State Worker ccalling to inform us that our son had been beaten by three juveniles in the Pine Bluff facility, yet we were not allowed to speak with my son, and we were not contacted promptly upon this incident from which our son suffered physical injuries. We can not get anyone to answer the phone at the Alexander facility at anytime. We are extremely upset because my son has not been able to contact anyone in my family, therefore no moral, spiritual or psychological help that we are aware he desperately needs. Our son was placed on psycologial medication due to a suicide attempt prior to being placed in the Batesville facility...he informed us that he had not been receiving his medication each time we visited him. Which was unfortunately only once at the Batesville facility (the second time we went to Batesville...about a 75 minute drive... we were alerted to the fact upon arrival that our son had been moved from the facility a day earlier without contacting us). The only once in Pine Bluff due to his short stay there, before he was abruptly moved from facilities, again without contacting us. Our son is 16 years old, and we have only received one letter from him while he was in Batesville and one from Pine Bluff. I will be contacting all of the local news stations, newspapers, including DHS and the Disability Rights Center immediately. We plan on contacting anyone who will listen including state representatives and senators. We are currently furious with this system, that has supposedly been created to help the youth of this state and give them alternatives in life, by encouraging them to become upstanding members of the community over being criminals. However, this complete lack of regard for the parents of these children, and the complete disregard of compassion for the childs mental and emotional stability as well as the lack of physical safety within their facilities is extremely alarming. This has caused us more stress and anguish than worrying about our son running the streets. My husband and I are not parents who do not concern ourseves with raising our son, we are parents who want the best for him, both as a child and an adult. We have studied previous reports, records, researched other states youth facilities, other concerned parents, community members and citizens, and read media updates on each facility. Honestly, we do not understand why these facilities are not ran better by this state, DHS and any other entity this concerns. We have retained an attorney to represent our family in this matter, as we are beyond upset and concerned. The next step is to educated our communities, parents, teachers and local and state government on these illegal methods being practiced by our "Youth Correctional Facilities, programs AMD Directors condoning these behaviors of those in charge of directing and disciplining our Arkansas Youth.
