Seventeen teenagers are still being sought after more than 30 held at a juvenile detention centre in Tennessee escaped by crawling through a fence.

They escaped late Monday evening from the Woodland Hills Youth Development Center in Nashville.

Two were caught immediately. Local police and the Tennessee Highway Patrol were searching for the rest on Tuesday.

I hope they catch the rest of 'em. And I do hope security is buffed up afterwards. Unbelievable.

Holy cow that's quite the jailbreak. Hope they catch them all.

There was a time when this would be a yawner of a news item but the "kids" in lockup these days can be some seriously dangerous types.  Have no idea whether these meet that description or not, just saying'  :unsure2:

How come you lock up kids in the first place?

Wherever there's a problem, there's solutions.
Answers are found from a wide deep perspective, from opened mind's eyes.
From where good and bad stay silent and you hear the real cause and effect, and big picture.
Giving up is wasting your time, but also necessary to find the true cause you didn't find yet.
Staying in the path is necessary only when there's trueness in that path.

Usually because they commit a crime.

" Mighty little force is needed to control a man whose mind has been hoodwinked; contrariwise, no amount of force can control a free man, a man whose mind is free. No, not the rack, not fission bombs, not anything —you can't conquer a free man; the most you can do is kill him" - Robert Heinlein

Because you can?  To justify prison budgets?

The usual reasons - murder, mass theft, being Black in public....

I must not fear. Fear is the Mind-Killer. It is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and to move through me. And when it is gone I will turn the inner eye to see it's path.
When the fear is gone, there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

You may think you're cool, but you'll never be as cool as Peter Capaldi with an electric guitar, on a tank, playing the Doctor Who theme.

Well, the facility is for 13-18 year olds. And according to the news, all of the escapees have multiple felonies. So I guess the logic is to lock up people that commit felonies, even if they are under 18.

I wonder if this facility is in any way connected to the Pennsylvania judge who was eventually convicted for sending youngsters off to a particular facility that he was invested in?

Don't you usually serve time in the state where the crime was committed?

Dozens of teens were restrained at a Tennessee juvenile detention center following a revolt, days after 32 juveniles broke out of the same facility, authorities said.
The teens started filtering out of the dorm at Woodland Hills Youth Development Center in Nashville at 11:10 p.m. local time Wednesday, kicking out metal panels under the windows, according to the Tennessee Department of Children’s Services. That same method was employed Monday, when teens slipping out under a weak spot in the perimeter fence, authorities said.

Well, they better need to escape back-in before their diapers need to be changed.  :w00t:
