Reform School Investigated for Beating, Killing Young Boys, Putting them Into Slavery

The Marianna, Florida. Arthur G. Dozier School for Boys, also known as the Florida Industrial School for Boys,was a place that kept both black and white boys between 1900 and 2011.  The reform school was known for setting boys straight, but also for treating them horribly in the process.

dozier school floridaRichard Huntly, John Bonner, Johnny Gaddy and Arthur Huntley are a part of an organization called ” Black Boys At Dozier Reform School.” The men say that when they were young, they were in pain from beatings and abuse that occurred while they were at the school.

“I worked as a field crew, and my job was to take the garbage to the pit and I seen what appeared to be human fingers and bones that didn’t look like a cow or animal bones, one of the boys said you better shut up if you want to live,” said Gaddy.

Richard Huntly says that when he was a boy, he had part of his toe c*t off while working in the sugarcane fields.  The memories are painful for the men, since they endured horrors that they’ve rarely spoken of until today.

“I remember distinctly the beatings I got – and the beatings still haunts me to this day, Bonner says,” I get c****d up inside just thinking about the – beatings.”

Huntley says that he was severely beaten once for not being able to remember the name and face of a cow he was supposed to milk.

The Documentation of the Boot Hill Cemetery (8JA1860), At the Former Arthur G. Dozier School for Boys, Marianna, Florida., Interim Report (Division of Historical Resources Permit No. (1112.032) does an investigation into the graves at the Boot Hill Cemetery in Marianna for Boys.

The deaths, which occurred between 1914 and 1973, involved 98 people, most of them being boys between the ages of 6 and 18.

“Reports of children being brutally whipped and chained to the walls in irons as well as peonage cases was reported. After spending countless of hours researching peonage cases in the National Archives in Washington, D.C., I found many cases of peonage in Florida that were reported to the Department of Justice by Mary Grace Quackenbos, special assistant U.S. attorney.”

In 1963, sixteen blacks were arrested for a sit in at a lunch counter.  Four of the juveniles, Samuel White, Audrey Nell Edwards, Joe Ann Anderson and Willie Carl Singleton were arrested.  The four teens, known as the “St. Augustine Four” were in county jail for a month and the boys spent another five months in the Dozier reform school for trying to get a hamburger at a lunch counter.  Many of these stories remain untold, and there are probably many, many more.

Additional investigations are being done to examine the depths of the tragedy.

    For twenty seven years, I have worked in group homes. Ten years in Los Angeles Ca. My home town. Fifteen years in Denver Co, Two and half years in South Carolina. Children that have been Physically, Sexually and Emotionally Abuse. I please with you Brothers and Sisters never,never allow your children to go to a Reform School or Group Homes. Many of the staff members are predatory and abuser in these institution. We as African people much take the responsibility of taking care of our own children.

    Actually, this is no different than the “for profit” prisons opening up all over Texas. This story is not new. I’ve heard about this place years ago. Now, someone wants to profit from the pain of these young men.
    Why don’t they donate the money they receive to the families of the young men who died. Maybe then, I’d be interested in seeing it

    DERRICK………. BLACK PEOPLE WILL NEVER SEPARATE FROM THE CAUCASOID OR THE ASHKENAZIM THESE DOPES LOVE/RESPECT/AND FEAR THE WHITE MAN.
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    I agree, it’s a loosing battle with these negroids! I really don’t OVERstand, why they love these heathens so godda.mn much, but hate THEMSELVES and each other?

    These crackers SHOW them everyday, how they feel about their azzes, but they continue to love them! These crackers have BRAINWASHED them so much, and used these fake azz screachas, i.e, MLK, Messy Jessy, and Sharptongue Sharpton to keep them in this docile, submissive condition.

    Remember, Margaret Sanger used MLK, Adam Clayton Powell, and other screachas to get Black xtians to go along with her program!!! She said a preacha could get their congregation (lost sheep) to help her with her eugenics program to get rid of Black people and children!

    THIS SHYT IS HAPPENING RIGHT NOW, IN FRONT OF OUR EYES. BLACK PEOPLE ARE BEING ANNIHILATED WITH THEIR WHITE DRUGS, WHITE SUPREMACY, AND WHITE POWER!

    I won’t be far behind you because this site is controlled by khazars, and bootlickin’ negroids!!!

    Ain’t too many negroids hip to the Ashke(na.zi) khazars, who were german khazars, that fled from na.zi, germany to eu(rope) to become ‘joos’! They are imposters, but negroids continue to call them ‘jews’!!! They are hyksos, habirus, or hebrews, who were k****d out of the Black Kingdom Nubia/Ethiopia (Afrika) because of their dirty deeds!

    They fled to Kemet (Egypt), and were ENSLAVED by the Black Kemetians, and Muurs/Moors, who ruled them. They fled to germany, and tried to take over germany, but Hitler DID NOT LET THEM take over, and this is the REAL REASON he b****d their azzes up!!!

    Every leader, who stands up to these euro-khazars these heathens call them ‘dictators’ or ‘terrorists!!! The uNUTed snakes killed Amin, Khadifi, Bin Laden, and a host of other leaders, who didn’t kiss amerikkka’s azz! Isn’t O’Drama a DICTATOR/TERRORIST? He’s killing innocent Afrikans and other non-caucasoid people for world domination for his caucasoid massa’s.

    He’s a TERRORIST!

    TERRORSIT = a person who employs terror or terrorism, especially as a political weapon

    DO THE MATH!

    Revelation 2:9 reads: “I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and [I know] the blasphemy of them which say they are jews, and are not, but worship in the synagogue of satan.”

    Revelation 3:9 reads: “Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of satan, which say they are jews, and are not, but do LIE…”

    These dumb azz xtians DON’T READ for themselves, and will remain lost sheep under these fake azz, pu.nk azz, lying azz screachas, who are poisoning their minds with this religous bullshyt!!!

    The Black Messiah called their synagogues and church buildings; lucifer (the devil/satan), but these dumb azz xtians sit up in these he.ll holes WAITING TO DIE to go to some unknown place called ‘heaven.’

    ALL OF THESE DUMB AZZ XTIAN NEGROIDS WANT TO GO TO ‘heaven’, BUT NONE OF THEM WANTS TO DIE!!! THEY ARE SITTING UP IN “HE.LL” RIGHT NOW!!!

    OUR PEOPLE ARE PATHETIC WHEN IT COMES TO THESE caucasoid’s RELIGIONS THAT THEY LOVE, BUT THESE RACIST CRACKER XTIANS, HATE THESE DUMB AZZ NEGROIDS WITH A PASSION!!!

    I will be in Marianna in 3 days since I saw this on the news I am my uncle about the place since I pad it coming and going to my grandmother’s house. The stories he tells are enough to make you cringe ranging from when the school was segregated, to the point where it finally closed. They still have guards out on the property and barbed wire on the fence it’s still a eerie site to see.

    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    This place is no different from these modern day homes for boys, such as these ADOPTION AGENCIES. They treat poor Black children.

    The Black children MAINLY BLACK BOYS are ALWAYS treated the worse! This type of mentality is world-wide, and is happening right here in these uNUTed snakes of azzholes (usa). The prison/penal/jail/pen.is system is the NEW HOME FOR BLACK MEN AND BOYS!

    Our young children are being treated this way in elementary schools; therefore, this ain’t nothing new! These racist schools put our children in handcuffs, introduce them to drugs (Ritalin), b**t them, molest them, and sodomize them RIGHT AT THEIR RACIST INSTITUTIONS!!! Same game; different location!

    WE MUST SEPARATE FROM THESE DEMONIC devils…ASAP!!
