Thomas B Mapes - 1994

It is not known why this 17 year old boy was sent to this facility. However due to "trauma to the neck" he didn't leave it. He died due to the actions of the guards. The state decided not to get their hands dirty anymore and let private firms run it instead. It led to chaos and sexual misconduct against some of the boys there.

Nothing was learned by his tragic death. In fact everybody wrote off responsability and settle with sending some money to his family who lost a son.

It seems unfair for the system to ignore struggling teenagers but it is like the state of Kansas seems to operate.

May he find peace where he is now.
