Arkansas stops use of torture device, but across state lines it is another story

The State Juvenile Ombudsman Scott Tanner has ordered stop of the use of the WRAP restraint system in the states juvenile prisons.

However the unregulated youth transport industry can continue to use the system when they move teenagers around other states.

We find that the lack of federal guidelines may endanger the teenagers and urge the politicians to work for introduction of the federal legislation covering this area.

No teenager should travel for hours in restraints without courtorder. The mental results of being forcefully removed from will haunt the teenagers for the rest of their lives.

Please approach your local politicians and urge them to interfere.
