looks like a prison!  governments should not be involved in putting children in prisons!

notes from an evidential hearing reveal this tale :  the boy was woken by his friends screaming , he saw his pals extended stomach and knew something was wrong , he forced open the dorm door and ran to find a brother , no sign of anyone , so he climbed a wall running down alongside the river to find two brothers fishing for salmon ... as he tried to get his breath back and explain his problem  in regard to his friend the brothers shouted him away as he was disturbing the fish ... he stood aside for ONE HOUR... after explaining all , the brothers responded that the sick boy had probably eaten too many berries he had picked from the brambles , aligning the wall or river bank ... but they would sort things upon their return ... he never saw his friend again ( alive or dead ) after leaving the House . He chased the paperwork , finding no medically trained staff or outside signatree thereon  he noted his friend had died from poisoned berries ... Rather than malnutrition ... so his account is recorded to history ...
