  • Tired Taxpayer

    What are they doing in a group home if they habitually run away? They need to be locked up so they won’t hurt themselves of hurt normal people.

  • DJ

    I’ll bet that their parents are public aid recipients who don’t pay taxes, but will sue the group home if something happens to these kids. That’s what happened at Maryville.

  • One who Knows

    Good old Lawrence Hall. A FOIA request would proovew interesting on how many of theses wards have taken off. It costs the taxpayers plenty.

  • NWA

    Actually, they are doing it for the crackheads and heroin addicts.


    • Stitch Jones

      That’s exactly what I said!!!

  • Inevitable

    Everyone beware. These two will attempt to rob you in 5 years.
