Bethel Boys Academy raided AGAIN
« on: November 02, 2004, 08:13:00 PM »
The state raided Bethel again. Amazingly enough they found no
evidence of any physical abuse, neglect or medical neglect. On Sunday
a Mom rescued her boy who had been abused and medically neglected.
Another family from Texas rescued their child, filed criminal charges
and returned home. Then on Tuesday a Mom rescued her child and
immediately took him to the hospital where he was admitted. I guess
since the state had that many complaining parents in less than a week
they felt the need to "check the place out". J.W. Watkins (Personal
Integrity Division) sent a police officer to the Bethel compounds to
view the video monitors. SURPRISE - they weren't working. Then when
this Mom went to the George County Sheriff's office to file criminal
charges she was told by Ronnie Lambert that the Attorney General's
office was responsible for overseeing Bethel's criminal activities.
Yet J.W. Watkins told this Mom that it was the George County
Sheriff's Dept. In the end, Sue Perry of the Attorney General's
office admitted that NO ONE HAS BEEN monitoring this hell hole.
Oh, the first civil suit has been filed. It will make the newspapers
tomm.

Good luck with the lawsuits. These places must be shut down.

The Sun Hearld article referred to a John Fountain, director of Bethel, who replaced the former director ousted by authorities.  Is my memory correct in that Mr. Fountain was a one-third owner of the shut-down Bell Academy in Victorville, CA, along with Ken Kay and Dace Goulding (director of closed Casa by the Sea)?  WWASPS is like a big NFL family...there are only so many coaches in football and they all rotate jobs like a carousel.

No, Mr. Fountain was not an owner of Bell Academy.  Also, Bell Acadmey was in Porterville, CA, not Victorville.  I worked there.  It was a great school.
