Juvenile detention centers

In the dark crevices of Massachusetts past lies some history that presently goes unnoticed. For many years, in the so-called Commonwealth of Massachusetts, a child could be killed for the crime of being stubborn. Rather than killing them, in the early fifties and sixties, they were rounded up and confined to the Youth Service Board Reception and Detention Center, in Roslindale, Massachusetts, where they were beaten and raped, not by other inmates, but by employees of the Commonwealth.

Predators, these so-called “masters,” were selected from the vilest of deviates to work in this building. I cover some of this in my book, Abominable Firebug.
