Dawn Renay Perry - 1993

16 year old Dawn Renay Perry was unfortunately not the last teenager to die while the employees tried to restrain her, but her death resulted in new legislation regarding the use of restraints.

However as tough as the legislation sounded, it didn't influence the number of teenager who died as result of failed restraints.

The specific treatment facility - known back then as Behavior Training Research closed 1998, but in the state of Texas alone additional 3 teenagers died before 2010.

The politicians had the interest of girls like Miss Perry in their hearts when the proposed the new legislation but frankly they had no idea of what they were dealing with. We can only pray that they will realize it at some point and impose legislation which can save lives.

They owe Miss Perry that. She didn't deserve her faith.

May she rest in peace.
