Call Me Stormy

Finding righteous currents in turbulent times

The Children Have Spoken

A recently passed Utah law is cracking down on the inhumane treatment in its behavior reform schools, a condition apparently prevalent across the nation. The bill marks the end of an era in the Beehive State, banning chemical sedation of children, mechanical restraint unless authorized and requires at least four unannounced inspections a year. The bill was lauded by socialite and media personality Paris Hilton and Caroline Lorson, an institution survivor.

Riss Flex reports that there were hundreds of behavioral facilities in Utah, all having their way with children for decades. She digs into the Salt Lake Tribune database to bring us more on the crackdown and Dr. Phil’s controversial interaction with one of the facilities.
