A Fox News station in Arkansas asks a question on its Facebook page. It asks: Is this method of restraining juveniles torture?
The Yell County Juvenile Detention Center uses this restraint mechanism called the “wrap system”. Some juvenile detainees call it “torture”. Now, the Arkansas Department of Human Services has sent a cease and desist letter to Yell County officials asking them to stop using the device. What do you think about the wrap system?
It supplies a photo of the “restraint mechanism”:
Yes, that’s torture. Thank you for asking.
