Summary
After visits to the four institutions that hold children committed by the courts for delinquent activity and interviews with over sixty children confined in the institutions, Human Rights Watch concludes that children confined in the long-term secure facilities in Louisiana are regularly physically abused by guards and that there is no effective system for bringing these abuses to the attention of the higher authorities. The conditions for these children are punitive and there is little focus on treatment and assisting them to successfully reitegrate into society. Children are kept in isolation for long periods of time, are improperly restrained by handcuffs and are often hungry
