More disturbing than you think...
13 January 2010 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

A young girl who's only "crime" was (justified given the clearly disgusting parents) teenage rebelliousness's is taken to a town that is hells Stepford. Apparently the acting out daughter was causing far too much shame for her father and mother, as apparently failing grades and dressing the way you want has anything to do with the parents circle of friends.

Whats actually, genuinely, disturbing and chilling about this episode is how close it hits to home, especially nowadays for American teenagers.

In a time where children as young as 12 are sent to Jamaican youth camps, run by American "youth correction centers", where they are beaten, raped and in some instances killed because parents believe that because they are "acting out" (read: talking back to parents) or even for such instances (as some children have been sent there for) of being caught having sex (at ages around 14 - 16) or dating someone of the same gender...it's truly disturbing to see something that fits reality so very well.

It's much more than pessimistic, and more truthful, to think that given the legal right; parents in the US would forcibly treat children like this to point of a fake, pathetic mourning after they are killed because they "just couldn't be helped".

Whats worse is when morons, and those as ignorant (intentionally ignorant) as the parents who send their children to these camps, actually defend them.

These children are NOT given an education. They are left in what amounts to WORSE than a Federal prison for years, until they are old enough to legally leave (though many, far too many, are brainwashed enough to stay until they "complete" it). The "school" they attend has no credentials and they legally have no graduated high school back home (in fact not even advancing to the next grade depending what year they go in). So they are left physically abused and a shell of nothingness, with no prospects. Even children growing up in ghettos have better prospects than these children.

They are not "just slapped around". They are BEATEN. Broken arms and legs. Fractured eye sockets. Forced to lie face down on the ground for hours and hours. To the point where they urinate or sh!t all over themselves. Which is usually met with punishment itself.

It's sad, truly sad, to think that the town of Evergreen doesn't exist in the Twilight Zone...but in an entire nation.
