Teen Escapes From Md. Detention Facility

LAUREL, Md. (AP) — D.C. officials say a youth has escaped from a juvenile detention facility in Maryland after attacking a guard.

Police say the 17-year-old from southeast Washington escaped from the New Beginnings Youth Development Center in Laurel on Monday. Officials say the teen stole the guard’s keys, climbed a fence and used a nearby ladder to escape the facility in the guard’s car.

By late Monday D.C. police had located the car, but not the youth.

This is the third escape from the center since it opened in 2009. The $46 million campus was hailed as a model for youth detention and a place to rehabilitate young criminals. The  center is in Anne Arundel County, but is run by the District.

    rehabilitate who? this new climate of youth cannot be rehabilitated. why spend 46 million on a facility? just build a couple of concrete bunkers and drop them in.

      I agree bj. Why is the Detention Center in AA Co. and run by the District? Doesn’t the District want their vermin? An addition should be built onto the DC Detention Center and leave the District to their own problems.

    REHAB IS A MYTH……….PRISON IS THE PLACE WHERE CRIMINALS GO TO LEARN HOW TO BE BETTER CRIMINALS FROM OTHER CRIMINALS…………ONCE THEY’VE BEEN “IN” FOR A COUPLE YEARS THEY SHOULD NOT BE LET OUT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    there is one thing that you all have to remember and that is that sometimes, when kid do the illegal things that they do is because they see every day from their parents, relatives and soo on. They may not have had the upbringing that you had you know these kids may not have a family at home, noone to teach them right from wrong, to show them the way that people are supposed to behave. You cant just start blaming the kid… what about the parents.. what did they teach them? Ask yourself that before you start saying such things.

    Had the parents only practiced birth control 18 years ago,
    we wouldn’t be reading this.
    And would have saved society the burden
