840. The Youth Development Center in Manchester

The Youth Development Center in Manchester is in the news due to the investigation into the actions of so-far two former counselors who has been charged with repeatedly raping a teenage boy in the 1990’s. Dozen of former victims have stepped forward.

While a youth detention facility is punishment, the punishment should never include rape. We can only hope that the victims are able to ask for a compensation using a private lawsuit against the state, which should have ensured that this form of abuse could not take place.

Today the detention center is known as: Sununu Youth Services Center 

It could not have been fun to be there as a teenager during the periode described in articles.
