Search Escape Resisting Evasion Manual for the Troubled Teen Prisoners
A work of Satirical Fiction
Cletus, a man of humble up brings, sits down at his computer. He takes another drink of lite beer(Also a man of poor taste) and begins to write.
A brief overview of the Troubled Teen Industry and how it can possibly affect you.
What exactly is the Troubled Teen Industry? In short the Troubled Teen Industry is a very diverse body of organizations who wish to deprive you of your freedom so that they might make money. They use a variety of techniques to deceive, intimidate, and harm those that are lured into its grasp. While this document is intended to serve as a work of fiction the following comments regarding the Troubled Teen Industry are very real. First, allow me to take a few minutes of your time to use your imagination.
Go into your room and close the door. Turn off the lights and imagine yourself asleep. Think about how comfortable your bed is and how relaxing it is just to lay on it without any interruptions. Think about that nice warm feeling you get at three in the morning that you get when you jump back into bed after a trip to the bathroom. It is quite nice isn’t it?
Now imagine two large men smashing down you door and dragging you out of bed while shouting at you to not struggle. Imagine those same two men dragging you out into the street, your parents no where to be found, and shoving you in a car. Imagine be driven or flown to a place far from your home and being sent to a school that the two strangers who have ignored you protests for the last one thousand miles telling you that this school will help you with your problems. Maybe if you are lucky the two men might even stop for McDonald’s and you’ll be able to make a break for it.
You’ve made that break, you are running to the police, and the police promptly hand you back over to the two men as they are licensed transportation escorts hired by your parents to transport you to the school. Upon arrival you are strip searched, you probably will be drug tested, you’ll be sent to a group of total strangers, and just maybe you might be lucky enough to have your shoe laces in your shoes. However, chances are you’ll be given a distinctive uniform and assigned to an older member of your group who will watch your every move. Sounds exciting I’m sure, but the question that leaps to my mind is, “What country do we live in again?”
This is America right? Don’t we get some sort of due process before being deprived of our rights? Guess what my friends in America children are the chattel of their parents. Until you turn eighteen and in some cases even after the age of eighteen your parents can have what I just asked you to imagine happen to you fat any time, any place, and all for a fairly reasonable price. Parents do not have to turn to the police or the courts to get permission either. You can be sent away without a day in court. The above mental exercise happens all to commonly every single day in America.
Just last year before a Congressional Committee the head of NATSAP (National Association of Theraputic Schools and Programs), a very skittish lady named Jan Moss, stated that the programs in NATSAP dealt with 20,000 young men and women last year alone. That is merely the programs in NATSAP as there are many more programs who have schools located all over the country. WWASP (World Wide Association of Specialty Schools), a non-member of NATSAP, has its own chain of schools that prides itself on its competitive rates. For even more contrast one can look at the Roloff Schools and a few others. The point being made here isn’t to do a book report on the Troubled Teen Industry but to prepare the reader to escape from them.
The more information you have from the beginning the better as Escape and Evasion begins before capture and not after. “
Not being content to leaving his work undone Cletus returns to his trusty computer after a night prowling a local topless dancing bar. He cracks open a fresh can of lite beer and writes.
What to expect, in general, from a program.
Each program has its own mode of operation. Even ones in a large company tend to have their own operating procedures. It is difficult to cover all of these procedures given the sheer number of programs, but it is possible to give you a glimpse of what goes on in a program by examining one in detail. However, be reminded that all programs are different and you should keep your eyes and ears open to gather as much information as possible if captured and forcibly detained at one of these private prisons(minus the due process of course). The program we will examine shall be called Tree Springs and it is located primarily in the Southern United States.
Tree Springs was founded in the 1980s under the leadership of one Mike Wilson. This Mike Wilson character decided that he wanted to start his own program/torture farm after working for another in the state of Georgia. Mike Wilson, a prick of the first order who ought to be fed into a blender for starting a company that has gone on to abuse thousands of kids, has since left his own company and started another in the same industry.
One hopes that a coyote will drop an anvil on his head one day, but one never hopes out loud.
Tree Springs has a specific operating procedure for new residents. At this torture farm the kids are separated from their parents and strip searched and drug tested. They are then turned over to their new group and given a buddy watcher. This groups consists of 10 to 14 boys and typically one counselor who probably had a degree in English Lit. Now this is where things get a little strange, but in the industry we are discussing it is probably considered tame.
The new resident will be told that in order to progress through the program he has to confess to his numerous misdeeds and admit he needs to be in the program. So the first few days in the program the new resident will not only be observed by his buddy watcher, a fellow student who knows he’ll move up the stage system quicker if does a good job supervising his buddy, he’ll also be carefully monitored by the counselor who is under the impression that the kid is either a drug fiend of a serial killer. This implies that despite the protestations of the youth that he is being sent to the program for hating his PE teacher he’ll be utterly ignored and forced to either concoct some bogus confession or pour out the most painful intimate details of his existence in front of a group of strangers. At Tree Springs they call it therapy.
Other therapy is the treatment teams interventions. A group of unlicensed English lit majors will get together every week and decide the fates of the residents in their groups. If they deem fit they’ll place interventions on the individuals or the whole group to prompt them to “work the program”. These interventions can range from the harmless to the severe. One harmless intervention is being required to talk about your feelings when you look angry to the severe of being forced to hold onto a piece of rope and having your shoelaces removed for being a suspected runaway prospect. Therapy at Tree Springs has a licensed professional side as well.
You’ll be spending twenty minutes a month with the facility psychologist. In this time she’ll probably be more interested in you medications than anything else. You can well be assured that if Tree Springs can find a pill to stuff down your throat they will. Everything from uppers to downers to lefties and righties. The job of the facility psychologist is to make recommendations to the company psychiatrist so that she can fill out a prescription. On the upside she’s a fairly nice harmless old lady and probably the only one there who won’t make you want to stab her in the face with a pencil. Don’t waste the pencil you’ll need it later for school.
Tree Springs offers a modern school facility that you’ll spend three hours a day in. This time will be spent toiling away doing homework under the supervision of a licensed teacher. You won’t be taking the materials out of the building with you as all the kids use the same textbooks and don’t expect internet access. That is only for staff to cruise for porn when no one is around at night. Three hours a day you’ll be sitting in a chair books cracked working away like the champ you are, but at least you aren’t outside in the heat and cold.
Was it mentioned that you’ll be living in a cabin with no running water? Well my friends it is true. You will be living in a cabin with no running water. If you want water you’ll be hauling it to campsite in five gallon jugs. The water is for your cooking and cleaning that you’ll be doing on campsite. The bathroom is the timeless one holer outhouse that typically can be smelled before it can be seen. The campsite itself, depending on the group and the counselor, will either be fit only for a pack of wild dogs or fairly habitable.
Some groups at Tree Springs are fairly motivated (Meaning they have a clean Nazi for a counselor) and your living conditions will be fairly decent. You’ll have a clean cabin, clean bedding, and the campsite will be in fairly decent order. The ones that aren’t up to par will probably be littered in rat feces, dirty bedding, dirty clothing, and the campsite itself will be in a poor state of repair. Either way you won’t be showering up on your campsite that is also sitting on the end of a trail that generally goes up a dangerous rocky trail that more often than not is covered with ice in the winter.
So where will you shower? On the main campus in the shower houses with the rest of your group. Be advised that most groups won’t require you to change your clothing right after you take a shower. This means you’ll be climbing into the same nasty dirty clothing you wore all day as soon as your finish. The residents not having any real motivation to keep their prison clean won’t put to much effort into cleaning the showers either unless they are forced to do so. The same can’t be said for the dining hall though.
The dining hall is kept fairly clean by the groups who take turns cleaning it and cooking the food once a week. However, the food itself is bland institutional garbage. It is all very unremarkable and you’ll either loose weight from not eating or gain weight from stuffing so many carbohydrates down your own throat. The same menu is repeated more or less without variation for week after week. Friday nights are always special with red bean burritos that will leave your cabin at a high risk from a methane gas explosion. A balanced weekend meal, provided by the dining hall and eaten on campsite, is considered to be potato chips, white bread, and baloney with condiments.
I know my friends.. Balanced meal for a prisoner on death row maybe..
Speaking of death row do you know that a death row prisoner has the right to making uncensored phone calls to their attorney? Tree Springs won’t allow you this, but you will be able to make weekly phone calls under the supervision of your group and counselors. Manipulating your parents is strictly prohibited and your group will bring it up if you are overheard attempting it. Your mail will be screened and you will not be allowed to write anyone but those approved by your parents. A far cry from the civil liberties granted those convicted to death for murdering and raping is it not?
While you haven’t and won’t ever be convicted of a crime you will be facing the judgment of your counselor. If you attempt to runs away from the group you’ll be stopped. I don’t mean nicely either as your counselor will run you down and jump on you. In other facilities children have been injured and killed. In Tree Springs it hasn’t happened yet, but certainly not for the lack of trying. See further on in the book for the chapter on Staff attempting murders via restraints. Even if the staff is in the wrong for restraining you the incident will be swept under the rug and blamed on you. Remember you are the youth and the staff is the grand humanitarian for putting his or her life on hold for helping you in your time of need, despite the fact that the only thing you really need isn’t in a program.
A recent murder inflicted on a resident in Florida showed several staff members jumping a young man who was refusing to exercise. After getting caught on camera for beating the boy to death they still weren’t immediately drug behind the courthouse and hung by the necks until dead under the old oak tree. An article posted online discussing the matter was littered with comments stating, “The boy had it coming.” This is the mentality which you face from the general public and the authorities regarding restraints. So be smart, keep a low profile, and stay out of fights.
Other programs run their by their own methodologies. Here is a brief overview of what you can expect:
1) In Straight Inc. and even today in its off shoots kids are forced to sit ramrod straight in a chair for 12 hours a day. If they try to get up to go to the bathroom they’ll be restrained by staff or higher ranking peers.
2) In Peninsula Village kids first go to a secured unit until they are deemed fit to join a regular group. In this secured unit you are required to sit on your bed for lengths of time running into several hours and you will be restrained if you attempt to get up to go to the bathroom.
3) In the infamous Rocky Mountain Academy, now Northwestern Academy, the students are required to attend workshops in where they are reduced to tears or forced to confess to having sex with animals to avoid further persecution from their own group or the people running the session. They are also kept deprived of food and sleep to make them easier to control and forced to hug each other in group hugs called, “smush sessions”.
4) No one is quite sure what the story is with the Aspen Education Group programs but we do know that a lot of kids sure seem to end up dead in them. I’ll let you draw your own conclusions from that.
5) WWASP schools have so much notoriety it is difficult to know where to being. Tranquility Bay in Jamaica is renown for making kids lay face down on the concrete floor for hours on end. Attempting to get up off the floor leads to you getting restrained. This is among other things in a seemingly endless list of abuses that have cropped up at all the WWASP schools. While several have been shut down many are in operation.
One particular perverse WWASP school known as Spring Creek Lodge used to have an isolation room called the hobbit. Not only did they charge parents extra for the privelage of having their kids safely locked away in the hobbit they ended keeping kids in the hobbit for weeks on end.
In complete isolation…
6) The Roloff Schools founded by Lester Roloff who was the genius who jumped in his plane with several young girls in tow despite warnings of bad weather to only get himself and the girls killed in a plane crash. At these lovely places the boys and girls are forced to kneel on pencils for several hours. Seriously it sounds trifling till you kneel on a pencil on a hard floor yourself for several hours.
7) Absolutely one of the list toppers is any school ever ran or in operation by Mark and Cheryl Sudweeks. These two loveable douche bags were ran out of Canada for animal cruelty, kicked out of Mexico, and charged by the state of Utah for hazing. They later plead no contest to the misdemeanor charges and lost a 400,000 dollar lawsuit filed against them by several irate parents.
Therapy for Cheryl includes getting the kids to beat the hell out of the ones she doesn’t like, feeding them left over food from a nearby restaurant, making a kid sleep on a shelf for the night, and not limited to but not excluding numerology. Trust me when I say that numerology has absolutely nothing to do with modern or ancient psychotherapy.
Those who are keen on sitting around a lot can get plenty of this in Elan. The Elan School provides a loving environment where you can spends days at a time sitting in a corner on a stool doing absolutely nothing.
The key points to remember here are that programs will do what they need to in order to preserve their flow of money. They will lie to parents, they will lie to the authorities, they will lie to you, and they‘ll lie to who ever it takes to keep you in the program. Cash flow must be maintained at all costs and no truth is so precious that it can not be sacrificed on the altar of profitability in a program. Even worst the program will cut their own costs to increase profits by providing substandard clothing, food, and housing. Once inside the walls of one of these places your future will be a bleak one indeed. “
Cletus after having a hard day of being the village ruffian decides to get in some more writing. He pops a can of lite beer, opens a bag of potato chips, and switches on his favorite video, “Lord of the Clit Rings”. Once ready he begins to write.
The OODA Method:
Identifying the enemy and Fleeing before being sent to a program.
On the odd chance that you stumble across some literature or correspondence in your home from some strange school you might have just gotten lucky. Take a note of the name and do a Google search on the internet. Modern intelligence agents use Google all the time so you might as well use it. Besides it is free and it just might save your life and sanity. If the school has any articles written about it take the time to look it over. It may well just be a college prep school that your parents ended up getting some literature about.
You may find some articles about the school. Print them up and read them carefully. If the school has had deaths at it due to suicide, staff induced murders through restraints, or deaths due to neglect you need to advise your parents accordingly. How you plan to go about this highly depends on how your parents are acting. Use the OODA method to observe them carefully. Are they acting normally around you or are they getting all paranoid for no apparent reasons? Once you’ve collected the information against the school you need to move quickly in order to preserve your freedom. Present it to your parents if you feel comfortable doing so or flee. We’ll talk more about fleeing in a few paragraphs. For now let’s discuss what to do in the event that the school doesn’t have any articles but a website.
Look for the following on the school’s website.
Positive Peer Culture
These are all huge signs that you probably are going to wake up some day twenty years down the road in a puddle of sweat from a Post Traumatic Stress Induced nightmare. Dig deeper and make a few calls to the facility pretending to be a parent. Ask them to clarify what the consequences involve and if they allow free communications with the outside world. I went to a boarding school that had all sorts of consequences but we also had free use of pay phones in a private location to call anyone we wanted. Likewise we also had trips off campus on a regular basis to go into town in the school vans where we could wander around unattended. It made for the perfect opportunity to get in all sorts of trouble, hence the consequences. If you are sure that this school isn’t such a place and that you are heading straight into a den of mental torture and physical abuse you have a choice to make.
Use the OODA technique to sound out your parents if you think you have the time to do so. You are the expert regarding your parents so use your best judgment. Keep in mind that if you are caught running for your freedom you’ll probably be sent to a program upon capture. Be very sure of your decision and once you’ve decided you need to act promptly. If you think your parents are absolutely serious about shipping you off to one of these schools then plan and implement an escape plan. On the other hand you have to weigh out the chances that your parents took one look at the literature and already decided against it. Remember, not all parents are computer illiterate morons and some of them can use Google as well. You make the call as it is your freedom, life, and mental health on the line.
Once you’ve made the decision to flee you need to create an escape kit. This kit should be a sturdy backpack of nondescript appearance to carry your clothing in. Put in it a few changes of clothing wrapped in plastic, some Ramen noodles, candy bars, and bullion cubes for food, and a large rubber poncho. The poncho works wonders for keeping you dry and acting as a blanket. The rubber will trap your body heat inside of it and keep your fairly warm in mild conditions. Inside of your backpack you need to make sure you have two water bottles as well as a sturdy knife of the lock blade variety. If you can get your hands on a Rand McNally Road Atlas you will be well advised to do so. Another vital item is a small bottle of bleach and a eye dropper. Two drops of bleach will kill just about everything in a gallon of water, but make sure you have the bleach in a strong bottle that won’t break open on you.
Use this list as a guide:
Three changes of clothing
Candy bars or nutrition bars
2 water bottles
Sturdy lock blade knife
Rand McNally Atlas.
Once you’ve pulled this material together then you need to get ready to make your exit. Most escapers tend to run to the first obvious place. Do not go to your best friend’s house, do not go to your girlfriend’s house, and definitely steer clear of any family member’s house. If you absolutely believe that your parents are going to deprive you of your freedom and you are willing to take the risks(death, jail, all sorts of nasty crap) then you have to run. Prior to leaving your house go to the computer and print up the following:
A bus schedule to the nearest large city.
A map of that nearest large city.
A list of homeless shelters in that nearest large city.
Promptly crumple them all up after circling a few key points as in phone numbers to shelters and locations and leave the crumpled balls of paper somewhere your parents will find them. Now here comes the absolute important part and I’ll put it below in large bold print;
Don’t go anywhere near this location.
What you are doing is creating misinformation. By salting the area with bogus information you’ll be laying a false trail. The next thing I’d do is leave a note for you parents. By doing this you’ll be informing them that you haven’t been murdered and kidnapped. Clearly lay out your issues and the reasons why you are escaping from possible death and mental distress that you’ll undergo in a program. Also if you have the time use yahoo.com or some other free email service to open an account. Leave the account name and password for your mom and dad. Tell them you’ll regularly being leaving saved drafts of messages on this account for them.
This establishes a line of communication that is nearly impossible for them to track you with unless you get stupid and tell them where you are.
Once you’ve done this you need to lay your second trail of misinformation. If you have the money go to the bus station, a very large one, and buy a bus ticket with your debit card or a credit card that your parents let you use. Do not steal their credit cards as this is a crime and it will only give them more leverage on you with the police. Once you’ve purchased this ticket get on the bus about ten minutes before it leaves, and then get off to go to the bathroom when the driver isn’t around and don’t come back. Your second trail of misinformation has been laid. Make sure this ticket goes to somewhere in the entire opposite direction you plan to head. We’ll come to finances in a minute.
Once you’ve jumped ship and are officially escaping you’ll need cash, food, and maybe medication. The issues of medication present all sorts of problems for which I have no reasonable answers to give. However, if you have a few month supply on hand be sure to bring it along with you. Once you’ve looted your stash of money, drained your bank account, and have converted all your assets to cash you need to move fast with a low profile.
Moving fast with a low profile means doing some simple things to change your look. If you have long hair go get a hair cut. If you have short hair buy a hat. If you have a bunch of piercing take them out. If you dress like a bum then go to the nearest Goodwill and buy a couple nice shirts and pairs of pants. Believe me when I say this your picture will probably end up in the hands of the police quite rapidly. You don’t have the time and resources at your hands to completely change your look, but you do have the time to dispense with the obvious. Moving fast is another issue that creates a set of complicated problems.
You’ve already laid your trail of misinformation to send your parents, the police, and in some cases private detectives on a wild goose chase. Keep in mind that there are people who hunt people for a living. They hunt people like you. This demands you put as much distance between yourself and them as you can in a hurry. Now that you’ve created your new look for your alter-ego that we already covered go get the hell out of your town and head to the nearest large college city.
College towns are full of young kids all running from something, mostly lunatic parents or themselves. You’ll be able to blend in as a young freshman and probably be able to score free meals and couches for several months. It is even possible you will be able to pick up some decent false ID that you can use to get a job. The logistics of applying for a job are a pain in the neck but many towns have day labor offices that only require one form of major ID. This saves you the migraine of having to provide a social security card. The other perk of a large college city is free stuff.
By free stuff I mean:
In some cases places to eat
Food and shelter are the keys to your survival. Without food you starve and without shelter you can’t sleep a full night’s sleep, and without either you can’t work. Before running out the door take the time to write down a list of the following information regarding your destination:
In short you want every possible contact you can organize to ensure you won’t starve to death within your first week of freedom. You’ll be arriving with very little money and with only what you can carry on your back. Use Craig list and community bulletin boards to find jobs, low cost housing, and other items like clothing and computers. Above all be prepared to do a great many dirty jobs to earn money, sleep in places that you normally wouldn’t allow a dog to sleep, and eat things that probably won’t appeal to you.
The biggest thing to remember here is you are going to have to network and meet as many people as you can to survive. Create a network of friends and people who will help you out with a place to sleep when you need it. Take great care to avoid parties that are out of control and other dangerous situations as you are probably being hunted by the Police. Getting busted at a frat party is more or less a promise that you’ll be sitting in a program in short order. Just keep your head down until you are eighteen and then request your birth certificate from your state and get on with your life.
Part of getting on with your life includes your education. One of the reasons why I suggest relocating to a large university town is the availability of free classes. This doesn’t mean you have to enroll in the class either. Find a large class and sit in the back and take notes. Given most university profs really aren’t that creative they probably reuse the same material over and over again. If you get a well documented and complete set of notes you can either reuse them yourself of sell them to incoming students. Colleges all have libraries and other multimedia labs. Use them as they are free and they rarely require you to provide identification. There are two things you absolutely must considering getting your hands on in short order once you make your break for freedom.
The first is a detailed guide on the high school equivalency exam, or GED. Get a good guide and study that book back and forth. When you turn 18 go out and take the exam and be sure to pass it. Once you’ve taken this exam and you’ve been diligent about educating yourself you’ll be able to slide into any decent community college. The hard part is entirely up to you in educating yourself outside of the traditional channels of education. On the positive side you won’t be forced to be another drooling drone in some boring high school class. The next thing you need to get is a bit more complicated, but doable.
It is the all purpose library card. If you can’t score a library card don’t worry to much about it. I prefer actual books myself, but there are thousands of books available on the internet. Either way get access to information and utilize it for you education. Read books of all sorts to broaden your horizons. If you can get access to the library I strongly encourage you to read biographies, but that is my own personal material of reading. I simply encourage this as you will for all intents and purposes be filling a void in your life and by educating yourself it will keep you occupied and out of trouble.
By trouble I mean several different kinds. You could get lonely and call your old girlfriend Mary Jane Rottencrotch who is probably already banging someone else. Don’t do it and further don’t call home to mom and dad so they can get your general location on caller ID even if you think you are being cute by using the pay phone down the block. Other trouble includes your new friends and telling them what is going on. Don’t do it as all you have to say is you are working to save up money to get into school and you decided to move into the area to get a head start on things. Just come up with a low key story that allows you to wiggle your way out of having to tell anyone your real details. Get used to saying, “I don’t like talking about it,” with a really pained expression that implies your parents are Mr. and Mrs. Attila The Hun. A big thing to remember is keeping your eyes open for opportunities.
Because you are hiding out from your neurotic parents you will need money. The best way, in my opinion, to earn easy cash is utilize craigslist. Because you are in a college town and you are posing as someone working on getting into college most people will understand your desire to work under the table. Just tell them that if you make to much money it will kill your student loan eligibility. Keep your eyes open for gigs and jobs on websites and community bulletin boards as well. You might not only find some easy jobs, but meet some useful people. Get used to keeping business cards and phone numbers for later use, and be sure to buy a good quality prepaid cell phone the first chance you can. It allows people to contact you for these opportunities, but it is not for you to call mom, dad, or friends when you get lonely.
Now some of you are probably wondering why I bothered to even suggest opening a line of communication with your parents. These are your parents and even if they are the douche bags who want to send you to prison without a trial they still do love you in their own weird way. Take the time to check in with them on a weekly basis and let them know you are still alive. Do not be lured home by their false promises of not being sent to a program. Just do the right thing and use the email account strategy to keep them informed that you are still ticking and that this situation will resolve itself when you are eighteen and legally an adult.
Just don’t be a fool and give your parents any hint as to your location.”
Cletus fresh from the fresh green pastures of Paradoxia VI is feeling the urge to write. To satisfy this urge he opens up a bottle of fine Mjnionian X Brandy and pours himself a glass. He takes a small sip and savors the fine tasting beverage and he begins to tap away on his keyboard.
So you don’t want to run?
Fleeing for you life isn’t for everyone. I certainly wouldn’t have entertained it as my first option when I was a young fellow. Food, shelter, employment, identification, medical care, and all sorts of other issues crop up. One should also take the time to mention things like ‘helpful’ family members who turn you over to the police to ‘save’ your life. Other major issues include evading the police and potential private investigators hired by your parents to ‘save’ your life. So it is not inconceivable that you decide to stay and fight it out with dear old mum and dad.
First, you need to establish if your parents really are going to ship you to a program. You could simply ask them if you feel safe with that, or you can resort to other measures. Do keep in mind that by verbally confronting you parents whilst wielding a baseball that you’ve driven a railroad spike through might seem appealing at the time, but will have the exact opposite response. You’ll not only be heading to a program you’ll have the blessing of your local judge to do so. Take it from me that you’d be better off avoiding this approach. As always you need to keep in mind that programs like you in their system sooner rather than later.
Programs use a legion of used car salesmen who have sold their souls to the devil to pressure you parents into tossing you into the program’s not so loving embrace. These admissions counselors really are cretins and liars of the first order who ought to be drowned along with all the lawyers. They’ll do all sorts of things to get you and your parent’s money out of your parent’s grasp. Chances are by the time they are done selling the program to your parents you’ll be about twenty four to forty eight hours away from being drug out of bed by your ankles by two large men with particularly small testicles and high pitched voices from steroids abuse.
You’ll get the two goons hired from the nearest Gold’s gym if you are lucky. If you are unlucky you’ll get Rick Straun a notorious drunk and child abuser. This cretin was fired from his job as a police officer, and now assures parents he’ll keep their kids safe during their transport to a program. Everyone please try not to urinate on yourself laughing like I did. A bit of a mess to clean up and al. If you get tipped off, and it isn’t likely you will have any warnings, don’t waste any time.
So let’s say you get lucky and are given the distinct impression via e-mail, papers left out, or a voice mail that your parents are in the process of having your freedom ripped off you like a stripper’s g-string at a drunken frat party. Running isn’t an option for you for whatever reasons you have. Information immediately becomes the vital key to your survival, and I’m not being flippant either as dozens of kids have been killed in programs. Don’t waste any time in beginning to utilize the OODA principle listed earlier in this manual.
The observations come in active gathering of information. If you are lucky enough to have the name of the program then use Google to collect articles or to view their website. You want to know if anyone has sued the program, been killed by the program, died due to neglect in the program, or have reported abuse from staff members or peers in the program. Gather as much information and articles as you quickly can and print them up for future reference.
Once you’ve done this you want to call the Admission’s office, be sure to disguise your voice and practice your lines first, and ask them about yourself. Don’t actually ask them about you, but pretend to be one of your parents and find out if you are really going to be enrolled in the program. The best way to do this is to request an update on the admission’s packet. If they give you confirmation that your paperwork is being processed you now are the grand prize winner of a really crappy deal, but you might as well consider having some fun with it.
If it was me and the Admission’s officer seemed to be clueless that I wasn’t who I claimed to be I’d tell them, “I’m sorry, but myself and the missus have decided not to send our child to your school at this time and we will be contacting you later.” Another good one would be to tell them your child contacted some vile disease and is in the hospital. But keep in mind that the chances of the Admission’s officer calling back for an update is quite high, and the likelihood of you getting a hold of a Admission’s officer that is mentally retarded quite low. The idea while amusing is fraught with dangers of tipping your parents off that you were tipped off.
Once your parents know that you are aware of your pending date with abuse, torture, and possible death they’ll obviously react like the good program puppets they are quickly becoming. So be subtle about how you go about observing and try not to ask obvious questions like, “So how about that school over in Texas, I heard they like to drag girls behind cars, you know anything about that?” Once you have confirmed your impending great misfortune and you’ve decided to stay you need to begin to quickly access your options.
Here are a list of suggestions:
A) Find a very sympathetic relative to intervene. Try not to get your Uncle Ned who has spent half of his life in and out of Prison. I doubt he’ll sway your parents much for some reason.
B) If your family is religious, but not a bunch of fundamentalism whack jobs, you can always hope that the pastor or priest might be willing to help.
C) If you are looking at spending time in a real hell hole you could always involve CPS and request to be moved to a foster home. You’ll need to call Child Protective Services and ask them the specifics on this process as it varies from state to state.
D) Good friends of the family often have a lot of sway and influence that can be exerted. Give it a try and hope for the best.
E) Another ploy is to find a school that you like and beat your parents to the punch by asking to be sent to it. Do a Google on boarding schools and call them before you frantically start waving around printouts about some place that for all you know could be worst than where your parents want to send you.
F) Call around to the free legal service groups that are found in your Yellow Pages and get legal assistance. Depending on your age you might be able to file for legal emancipation if your case is strong enough.
G) Another strategy is to use the internet to find various web forums who play home to survivors of various programs. See if you can get one, a rationale and intelligent sounding one, to call your parents to convince them of what a pit they have chosen for their child.
In the end you have to use your judgment and keep your options open. Even if you have decided not to flee I still strongly advise you putting together an escape kit. Literally consider barricading your door at night to not allow escorts easy access into your room. Keep a safe line of escape open so that if they do try to force your door you can still escape the room. Above all you do not want to go anywhere with an escort. Do whatever it takes to ensure that they do not get your hands on you, because they’ll do their best as they don’t get paid if you aren’t dropped off at the program.”

Escorts don’t get paid by the mile, they get paid by the child delivered. To an escort you are a commodity that must be transported in order for them to get paid. Your job as a potential sufferer from abuse, torture, and potential death is to stall or stop this escort all together. To accomplish this mission you need to stop looking at escorts as if they were human beings. This dehumanization process will allow you to mentally prepare yourself to fight dirty.
If you have to fight an escort do it to win. In most encounters the child does not have any warning. They are simply drug out of bed at three in the morning. Keep in mind that you’ll be confused and scared. One moment you will be sleeping and the next you’ll have two strangers waking you up with some fairly bad news. Escorts often have handcuffs and usually have no qualms about physically wrestling you to the ground if you try to run. Your ability to fight will be severely hindered, but not completely negated.
Keep these words in mind:
‘When in Death Ground, Fight.’
Sun Tzu- The art of War.
Because it is a war you will be pulled into. It won’t be fought with any sort of glory or honor, but the stakes will be your freedom or your life. From the very second the escorts enter your room you are being forced into a state of war. These sub-human pieces of filth have entered your room at 3 in the morning with the intent of hauling you to a program in where you face the very high possibility of being abused, tortured, injured, or killed. Keeping this in mind is part of the dehumanization process of escorts.
Escorts are not human.
Escorts do not deserve mercy.
It is ok to lie to escorts.
It is as good thing to fight them.
It is ok ambush them.
If you injure them be sure you do so in a way that prevents them from reproducing. (go for the balls)
It probably isn’t a very bright idea to kill any of them as the legal authorities will take a dim view of it no matter how you try to spin it. However, if you do have to fight and you do win you always have the claim of, “Damn man, I woke up and two strangers were forcing me out of bed. I didn’t know who they were so I defended myself.” Most people will probably emphasize with this reaction and I suspect you’d probably not be charged due to you acting from a diminished capacity(That capacity being your state of confusion stemming from being woken up by two strangers at 3 in the morning). If you do fight pick your time and method of attack.
You never want to have to fight these lowlife sub-human pieces of filth when they have the advantage. The biggest advantages they have are size and numbers. Be smart and wait till one of them can’t get their hands on you. Once you are certain you can safely flee by setting up an escape route in your mind then make your attack. I’m an old fashion sort of fellow who has never played nice in a fight and I’ve been in several, and as is such I have a few rough and dirty pointers.
Because you are fighting for you life target these areas:
-punching someone in the throat will leave them unable to breath.
- This will stun them for a period of time
- This will blind them
Take the time to look at your hands and think what you can do with them. You can make them into fists that are great for punching in the throat or groin. You can stab people in the eyes or throat with your extended rigid fingers. While you are at it take the time to look at your knee. If you need to take that knee and swiftly bring it up into the escort’s groin. Another tactic is head butting and this one works fairly well as people tend not to expect it. Bring back your forehead and slam it into the escort’s nose, and if you do it fast enough or hard enough you’ll break his nose, but always remember the point isn’t to beat them unconscious.
You merely want to stun them long enough for you to make your escape. I mentioned earlier about establishing an escape route before you attack. If you just stand there laughing at the guy while he is holding his bloody face that you just head butted his partner will jump you and restrain you. This isn’t a lovable wresting session either. Compare it to having two adult gorillas jump up and down on you. Successful escapes from restraints are infrequent. Do not spend any time admiring your handwork and promptly make use your escape route..
Let’s say your lines of escape are blocked and you can’t possibly fight your way out. This happening is a distinct possibility so be prepared for it. Your other options are passive resistance and being very vocal. No matter what you choose you should always keep assessing chances to escape and you need to be frequently reminding yourself that escorts aren’t real humans and shouldn’t be treated as such.
Once you realize you can’t fight consider these options:
Passive Resistance- Simply refuse to move and make them carry you every where.
Fake Medical Emergency- Seriously use that asthma for your benefit for a change. Carry on so loudly they have to take you to a hospital. Once there request to speak to a licensed social worker because you feel an impending mental crisis. Once the LSW is in the room tell him or her everything and hope for the best. If they seem to disregard you pleas for help tell them you want to kill yourself and demand to be sent to the psych ward for evaluation.
Vocal Resistance- If they take you to the airport simply act like the biggest maniac you can. Start screaming, “Rape” and whatever else comes to mind. Airlines won’t let you on the plane if you are acting like a crazy man/woman.
Whatever you do always keep in mind that it is your duty to resist escorts and that escorts are not human. These people are the gatekeepers of and industry that thrives off lies, pain, and humiliation. If you trust them you will be sitting in a program for an unspecified period for time with limited contact to the world and no legal representation. Consider these last question, how many children who were killed in programs were transported by escorts?
Did the deaths of their former clients stop them from ever escorting another child to a program?
