Civil Rights Group to Investigate Deaths at Montgomery County Youth Center

 

terrymcmoore.jpgCivil Rights Activist and Director of the Urban Resource Center Mr. Terry McMoore has assembled an investigation team to look into the recent death of a 17 year old boy who allegedly, died this weekend of cardiac arrest after being restrained for unruly behavior. This marks the second time in little less than two years that a youth housed at the Chad Enhancement Youth Center has died under the same described circumstances.

“I find it very strange that two healthy teen’s suddenly drop dead upon being restrained for unruliness by staff members at this facility. Something does not sound right about these deaths and we intend to do a full investigation to not only get to the bottom of the truth but to make sure that the current youths housed at this facility are not being subjected to physical or life threatening abuse at the hands of staff members.” –  Terry McMoore.

The Chad Youth Enhancement Center is located at 1751 Oak Plains Road in Clarksville-Montgomery County TN. The Chad Youth Enhancement Center is a non-custodial placement, 50-bed residential treatment center for youth who have a significant history of emotional and behavioral problems.

Contact person for this press release is Mr. Terry McMoore (931) 552-9076 or (931) 378-1999 Email: terrymcmoore@hotmail.com
