I would like to see a few facts before I accept this story. Where did this happen. Who provided the number? I do not doubt this could happen, and may have already happened, but I have no basis for action or even knowing what to think without more facts.

Complaints Flood Texas Youth Hot Line

NY Times
Tuesday, March 27, 2007

AUSTIN, Tex., March 22 — “Investigations hot line,” said Brian Yasko, answering the phone at the Texas Youth Commission in a windowless command post that officers are calling “the belly of the beast.”

Quickly, Mr. Yasko began scribbling down details of yet another complaint, this one from a mother who said her son at the San Saba State School, now called the John Shero State Juvenile Correctional Facility, had been threatened by a sexually deviant corrections officer.

Yes, said Mr. Yasko, an investigator for the inspector general of the state Department of Criminal Justice; she could remain anonymous. “What I’ll do is send this out to the field and have investigators interview your son,” he promised.

Since a sexual abuse scandal at the Texas Youth Commission became public last month, prompting mass firings and resignations, more than 1,100 investigations have been opened into new accusations of rape and other mistreatment. At last count 282 cases had been closed without action.

Many of those complaints have been flooding into the makeshift situation room here staffed around the clock by employees of the inspector general’s office of the adult prison system and of the state attorney general’s office.

These officers, in turn, parcel out the cases to about 100 investigators from the two agencies and the Texas Rangers who are interviewing witnesses at 24 youth detention centers and scores of small contract facilities across Texas, where more than 4,000 youths ages 10 to 21 are serving sentences of at least nine months — but almost always longer — for criminal violations.

One of the centers is the West Texas State School in Pyote, where a Texas Ranger’s investigation in early 2005 substantiated accusations that two top supervisors had carried on sexual relationships with juveniles. Both later resigned but were never charged with a crime.

The case languished for almost two years in the Ward County district attorney’s office until news reports last month, and the resulting outcry prompted the part-time prosecutor, Randall Reynolds, who operates his own law business, to request assistance from the state attorney general. A grand jury has been hearing evidence.

“I imagine we have got their attention,” said John M. Moriarty, the inspector general for the prison system, who is running the hot line center and deploying investigators.

“Our thing is to get the police in there, enforce the law,” said Mr. Moriarty, a former police officer who grew up in the Bronx. “There’s a new sheriff in town.”

Jay Kimbrough, named by Gov. Rick Perry as special master to overhaul the Youth Commission, also voiced determination in a separate interview. “I’m sadder, and I’m madder than I was the day before,” said Mr. Kimbrough, a former deputy state attorney general.

In a commandeered office at the Youth Commission headquarters, eerily empty of senior staff members who were purged in the uproar, bulging cardboard files and intake boxes are marked “New Cases,” “Cases to Be Assigned,” “For Review” and “To Be Closed.”

Against the backdrop of a white board on which is scrawled a toll-free hot line number, and injunctions like “Record Prank Calls on Log, Get Exact Time,” officers with holstered handguns fill the air with investigative crosstalk.

“When are you going to serve it?”

“No, the Ranger has got to go.”

“We want to execute the warrant.”

“Tell him I want him to meet with the D.A. at 1, no matter what.”

Of the 1,100 complaints that have come in since March 6, an estimated 225 concern sexual abuse, said Capt. Bruce W. Toney of the inspector general’s office. Captain Toney described some others as trivial grievances, like complaints of ill-fitting shoes, “I don’t agree with the teaching” and “not letting me talk.” He said some accusations appeared to be fabricated, some were pranks. One complaint stemmed from 1981. In another case, he said, a mother claimed that her son had entered juvenile detention able to read and write, but came out illiterate.

In some cases, Mr. Moriarty said, criminal files are being opened on cases that the Youth Commission had disposed of with nothing more than administrative penalties. One such incident, he said, involved a corrections office at the Al Price State Juvenile Correctional Facility in Beaumont who used excessive force to get a child to release a mattress he was grabbing. The officer, Mr. Moriarity said, “bit the child.”

A few Youth Commission employees, Mr. Moriarity said, were found to have histories as sex offenders. Job applicants now are subject to background checks with fingerprint searches, he said.

To sort out the complaints, the command center includes four polygraph experts. The inspector general’s office normally investigates complaints in the state’s 106 adult prisons. But a proposal to extend its jurisdiction to youth detention centers is among pending bills in the Texas Legislature that address the abuse of juvenile detainees — now the leading issue of the session.

Among the bills are proposals by Representative Jerry Madden, a Republican from the Dallas area and chairman of the House corrections committee, to extend the attorney general’s jurisdiction and to give a special state criminal justice prosecutor concurrent jurisdiction with local district attorneys in cases of juvenile justice complaints. Currently, outside prosecutors are barred from entering a case unless invited in by the district attorney.

Apart from the investigations into the mistreatment of youths, many other proposals are under consideration. These include a plan for review panels to verify that juveniles are not being frivolously held beyond their minimum nine-month sentences.

Alternatives to incarceration are being explored, said Mr. Kimbrough, the special master. Meanwhile, at the command post, investigators who are reviewing old files forwarded another case for possible criminal prosecution, an accusation that a corrections officer at the Ron Jackson State Juvenile Correctional Complex in Brownwood had carried on a romance with an 18-year-old girl and arranged to meet her for a tryst upon her release.

In a letter intercepted by investigators and now part of the case, the accused guard wrote, “She sets my sole on fire.”

Gonzales Implicated In Cover-Up Of New Pedophile Scandal
Letter from Sutton's office legitimized raping of boys in minor's facility

Paul Joseph Watson
Prison Planet
Monday, March 26, 2007

Journalist Jerome Corsi appeared on the Alex Jones Show today to discuss in depth his astounding new investigation that implicates both Alberto Gonzales and U.S. Attorney Johnny Sutton in the cover-up of a pedophilia scandal involving the Texas Youth Commission.

"Attorney General Alberto Gonzales and U.S. Attorney Johnny Sutton, both already under siege for other matters, are now being accused of failing to prosecute officers of the Texas Youth Commission after a Texas Ranger investigation documented that guards and administrators were sexually abusing the institution's minor boy inmates," writes Corsi in a report for World Net Daily.

"Among the charges in the Texas Ranger report were that administrators would rouse boys from their sleep for the purpose of conducting all-night sex parties."

A 2005 investigation led by Texas Ranger Brian Burzynski revealed that systematic abuse of minors was commonplace at West Texas State School in Pyote, Texas. Burzynski presented the findings of the investigation to both Gonzales and Sutton but was rebuffed, and even received a letter from Sutton's office that attempted to legitimize the sexual abuse of children, claiming that "under 18 U.S.C. Section 242," it would have to be demonstrated "that the boys subjected to sexual abuse sustained "bodily injury," states the letter from Bill Baumann, assistant U.S. attorney in Sutton's office.

Incredulously, Baumann's letter goes on to make the case that the minors consented to and even enjoyed the acts of pedophilia, therefore no further action was necessary.

U.S. Attorney General Johnny Sutton.

In September 2005, the U.S. Department of Justice Civil Rights Division also refused to follow up with a prosecution.

According to Corsi, officials implicated in the scandal were hired despite their known criminal backgrounds and were also retained even after it was discovered that they were using state computers to regularly visit pornography websites.

"It basically sounds as if you wouldn't get hired in one of these facilities unless you were a pedophile," Corsi told the Alex Jones Show.

"You've got a culture of pedophilia that is at the core of the Texas Youth Commission, and what that means is you won't get hired or you won't stay as an employee unless you're willing to participate in the boy rape that's going on or keep quiet about it."

Corsi says he has further developments to report tomorrow that confirm the scandal is "Now known to be widespread, all the offices of the Texas Youth Commission throughout the state are involved and employees from the top to the bottom are all involved."

Surveillance Tapes Misplaced During Probe of Texas Juvenile Detention Centers

Wednesday April 18, 2007

HOUSTON — State investigators want to know why surveillance tapes from a troubled youth prison — allegedly showing a former guard entering a supply closet with a teenage girl — were never shown to the grand jury that cleared the guard of abusing the girl and two others.

The tapes were discovered at Texas Youth Commission headquarters in Austin on Friday, nine days after the grand jury decided not to indict the former guard at the Ron Jackson facility in Brownwood.

After learning that no indictment had been returned, Richard Steptoe, an investigator with the Texas Department of Criminal Justice Inspector General's office, asked TYC officials to show him the collected evidence. He had the three or four tapes within minutes. The inspector's office has been called to assist the investigation of sexual and physical abuse cases at TYC.

"We don't know if they were misplaced or concealed," Steptoe's boss, John Moriarty, TDCJ's inspector general, told the San Antonio Express-News. "We're looking into it. I would certainly say (the tapes) are material to the case."

The Brown County district attorney's office didn't immediately return phone calls to The Associated Press on Tuesday.

In 2005, the TYC said it confirmed the guard had sexually abused at least three girls at the Brownwood facility. The official report stated that the footage supported details given by each of the three girls.

The girls told investigators the guard used the supply closet to have sex with them. The tapes allegedly show the seven-year-veteran, over a number of days in 2004, entering and exiting the supply closet with at least one of the girls.

"Several times that day (the alleged victim) went into the closet followed by (the guard) a few minutes later," the report stated.

The guard was allowed to resign. The case was forwarded to the local district attorney after the more publicized sex abuse scandal at the West Texas TYC facility broke in February.


Amazing the US Govt is holding CCTV footage from OKC won't release them
Us govt has cctv of 9/11 and pentagon , nope not released (security reasons)
And lo and Behold here we have Bush's state no less, magically losing tapes
And let's not forget about those emails missing.

I can totally relate to this. A few years ago I was working at a NH ski resort, and found out from my part -time teenage workers that the "new guy" who had been following them to the bathroom was their old middle school teacher. The teacher had been dismissed for having child pornoraphy on his computer, but since the school hadn't pressed charges, the ski resort manager refused to fire him. The girls had tons of yucky stories from their school days. I decided to quit rather than stay on and bring my daughter the the resort day care during summertime if that was the ignorance and disrespect level they had for children's safety.

Well, being a teacher, I was horrified to read this. I do aknowledge that newspapers (left and right) too have their political agenda, but here in Finland one needs to give an extract of police records in order to work with children. I think that's a really good thing! The stand against the sex offenders and paedophiles needs to be as tough as it possibly can! Of course they'll try and get to work with kids, they can't help it! It is sickening and very dangerous. Children need to be protected, and if a new identification system is needed, then so be it.

What the heck is wrong with this society when we can find any type of justification of putting children in danger like this? Those of you that use political agendas and numbers to excuse even one, are off... These offenders should not be out on the streets at all ratherless put in a situation where they can re-offend and destroy another childs life!!!

I hate posts like this. NOT ALL PPL LISTED ARE BAD PEOPLE!. i know someone who is a listed sex offender because her husband basically forced her to have a 3some with him and a young girl who also talked her into it, then told the police. he was abusive and she served like 5 years because of it, now she can never get a job, and it took her years to get her kids back and she is a good person. so before automatically thinking of all offenders as fat abusive men with a (imgon rape yah) look on their face read into it a bit,

PS. america is one of like 5 countries with an 18yr age limit for sex... most countries average 15.
