STRAIGHT, Inc. Victim: 'Where Is Our Apology?'

April 27, 2017 - 9:00am

"Kristy Fuss today" "Kristy Fuss, age 12, Christmas 1989"

In this month of legislative apology for atrocities done to child victims, there's a forgotten group of survivors out there. And they're asking, "What about us? Where is our apology?"

"This is something I can't get my head around," said Kristy Fuss, 41-year-old survivor of STRAIGHT Inc.

"I'm happy to see so much attention given to the Dozier reform school victims and the 'Groveland Four.' Nothing could be more important for their families and their memory than this recognition and closure. But why don't we count?"

Said Fuss, "This year the Legislature has actually made our suffering worse."

The irony of the Legislature's blind faith in Mel and Betty Sembler is like rubbing salt in STRAIGHT victims' wounds.

I Beg to Differ

These victims weren't only left off this year's apology list, they have to watch as the Semblers, creators of the notorious "tough love" program the ACLU calls "a concentration camp for throwaway kids" -- are welcomed into the Florida Capitol as heroes.

The last I saw, the Legislature has $3 million in the budget so Drug Free America Foundation can run a marijuana education program. Fuss had heard, and that's why she phoned Sunshine State News. "Can you imagine how small and unimportant that makes us feel?"

From 1976 through 1985, Mel and Betty Sembler's program was known as STRAIGHT, Inc. It had a reputation that wouldn't quit for abusing kids as a drug rehabilitation program. In 1985 it changed its name to the Straight Foundation, Inc. in order to protect its money and its principals from civil suits. And in 1995 it was changed again to Drug Free America Foundation. Today, DFAF exists as a national and international drug policy think tank.

As many as 50,000 kids were in the STRAIGHT program. The Medical Whistleblower Advocacy Network also calls STRAIGHT Inc. "the biggest violator of human rights and civil liberties that the USA has ever seen."

"There are thousands of us out here," Fuss said. "We all still suffer, we live with unimaginable emotional scars."

More than 40 former STRAIGHT clients have committed suicide, and those are only the cases the state admits to. At various times in the program all were beaten by their peers, humiliated, deprived of food and water, refused basic medical care and kept too scared to complain on parent days.

Nevertheless, every Republican president since Jimmy Carter has bestowed "gifts" upon the donation-generous Semblers -- mostly ambassadorships and the understanding that they were safe from prosecution, even when the criminal behavior at STRAIGHT facilities in Orlando, St. Petersburg, Sarasota and elsewhere was exposed.

In 2000 Gov. Jeb Bush declared Aug. 8 Betty Sembler Day in all of Florida for her work at STRAIGHT -- affectionately calling her "Ms. Ambassadorable." Betty Sembler was Jeb's finance co-chairman. In return, Ms. Ambassadorable named him to the advisory board of STRAIGHT under its current name, Drug Free America Foundation. 

On Jan. 5, 2009, Gov. Charlie Crist inducted Betty Sembler into the Florida Women’s Hall of Fame for her work at Straight, Inc. and for her service on the board of the Florida Governor’s Mansion Foundation. 

Also, Betty's son Brent, vice chairman of the Sembler Company, was finance co-chairman for the campaign of state Sen. Charlie Crist. He also served on committees for the election of Charlie Crist for Florida Education Commissioner, for Crist's bid for Florida attorney general and for Crist's gubernatorial campaign.

Most STRAIGHT victims talk about their "time in hell" only to each other, on their own website -- or they don't talk at all, suppressing the worst of it. Two victims told me they could tell me what happened to them in the program, but so haunting were their stories, they didn't want to see them in print.

Kristy Fuss, on the other hand, who still lives in rural Middleburg, in unincorporated Clay County where her STRAIGHT experience began, told me she's been inspired to talk more about her nine months in the program since she connected with Cyndy Etler.

Etler, another STRAIGHT survivor, is the author of a book about the program published just last month and available through Amazon, called "The Dead Inside."

Says the bookcover, "To the public, STRAIGHT Inc. was a place of recovery. But behind closed doors, the program used bizarre and intimidating methods to 'treat' its patients. In her raw and fearless memoir, Cyndy Etler recounts her sixteen months in the living nightmare that STRAIGHT Inc. considered 'healing.'"

"I had to walk away after two chapters," Fuss told me. "That's how real it is, how much it captures what I saw and felt at the time, and what I still have nightmares about."

Fuss said at 12, she hadn't even smoked a cigarette, let alone taken drugs. "My parents put me in STRAIGHT because my father had started to abuse me sexually, and I told on him. His way of saving himself was telling people I was on drugs and that's why I would say such a thing. He even convinced my mother."

The next weekend, her parents drove her to Orlando and left her at STRAIGHT.

"It was June 9, 1989. I'll never forget it. When I got to the place, which was in the middle of cracktown, a couple of teenage girls took me and dropped me in the corner of a small room and identified me as 'definitely a drug addict.'

"They dragged me down the hallway into an empty room and stripped all of my clothes off me, then did a jail-type body search on me.

"For nine months, I was tortured, always by other kids in the program -- that's what they did, they made clients torture other clients. You couldn't get released unless you did that.

"During those nine months I was deprived of food, sleep, even fluids. I was even slammed on the floor. But the worst came when I needed major surgery and they told the doctor that because I was already a drug addict, I wasn't allowed to have any proper anesthetics."

Fuss says she's been diagnosed with PTSD, and she's had such severe nightmares and flashbacks that she's sometimes a problem for her husband to deal with. "Luckily he's a good man. I married my high school sweetheart," she says.

All Fuss wants now is acknowledgement from the state, which was slow to close STRAIGHT clinics. And she wants Florida leaders to know they are enabling two people who got rich off the suffering and sometimes death of children, and who should be behind bars.

It looks to me like an uphill battle. The Semblers aren't the Bushes. But when it comes to Florida's Republican royalty, they're pretty close.

Which is why this multi-millionaire couple, who still live in St. Petersburg, could mess up the lives of hundreds, perhaps thousands, of teenagers in the Sunshine State, and still walk on water.

180 Beach Dr. NE House Speaker Paul Ryan drops by Sembler's pad — with an FHP escort Wed Feb 17 13:11:34 EST 2016 | Tampa Bay Times U.S. House Speaker Paul Ryan on Wednesday visited a St. Petersburg house, or condo tower rather, causing plenty of gawking downtown at the bevy of limousines and security provided by Florida Highway Patrol and the St. Petersburg Police Department. Top GOP fundraiser Mel Sembler and his wife Betty live in the penthouse of Ovation tower at 180 Beach Dr. NE, where the vehicles were parked. The Wisconsin Republican was in St. Pete for a couple of fundraising events that will support Team Ryan, his new political organization, and the National Republican Congressional Committee, said Zack Roday, his press secretary, in an email to Bay Buzz. During his first few months as Speaker, Ryan has raked in millions of dollars, becoming the GOP's top fundraising draw, according to The Hill. Ryan's visit had Beach Drive abuzz.

Is that why Florida Republicans talk about Trump like he's some kind of "druggie teen"? NOW I GET IT! The sales pitch they used to swindle our families in to Melvin Sembler's Straight Inc. is the SAME SALES PITCH they use to try and convince the American people that Trump is "deranged" and "beyond reasonable". Remember Romney saying "Trump is a phony, a fraud,... His promises are as worthless as a degree from Trump University..."

BUMP>>>>>>Dr Robert Nay, executive staff, actually personally physically tortured me until my foot was bleeding through my tennis shoe, and he left it that way for a week and NO medical attention, clean socks, soap or water. After torturing me personally, Dr Robert Nay left me with dried blood soaking through my white shoe, and left me hat way for a week. I was shifted to a different oldcommer home each night during that week, so I didn't even have change of clothing as I recall. Dr Robert Nay cares for children today in Sarasota. I would like someone to contact him personally and ask him why he did these things to me for no reason, and everybody could see the blood soaking through my white shoe all week. Go ahead. Ask him why.

BUMP>>>BUMP>>>BUMP>>>Straight Sonder Kommando Survivors claim to represent all of Melvin Sembler's victims, EVEN THE CHILDREN THEY MOLESTED AND ABUSED AND ADVANCED THEIR RANK BY DOING SO. Sembler's victims are THEIR victims. Me. Maybe they should PAY MONEY TO THEIR VICTIMS. PAY ME MONEY "STRAIGHT SURVIVORS" and set a good example for your dear leader Melvin Sembler. Better yet, MAYBE I'LL COME AND TAKE IT FROM YOU TOMORROW MORNING! Sembler owes his freedom to his ever loyal STRAIGHT Sonder Kommando SURVIVORS!

Brian Dodd go away Your foolishness is paid for by your uncle.

I am not Dodd, but I have been accused of being Dodd more than once. Why don't you explain in a nutshell the significance of this "Brian Dodd" and who is his uncle? Are they pro-Sembler?

There is a really good website which works tirelessly to document the stories of people who have escaped from Straight Incorporated. The website address is http://copout.org/ Regards, Chris Poole Springfield,Virginia Straight Survivor February 1985 to July 1986

Cop-Out = Quitter, loser, escapee. Victims of Melvin Sembler's Straight Inc and his abusive druggie oldcommers are not "Cop-Outs". Most of Melvin Sembler's victims did not "survive" Straight Inc and the abusive druggie oldcommers. Most of Melvin Sembler's victims did not "escape" Straight Inc and the abusive druggie oldcommers. WARNING PERSONAL PRIVACY SCAM!!! Never contact ANYBODY or ANY GROUP claiming to be "Straight Survivors", because THOSE PEOPLE TORTURED KIDS and now they want you to make them feel better for abusing you. Plan on contacting anybody claiming to be "ISIS SURVIVORS"? "Ex-ISIS"? Any takers??? Going once!!! Going twice!!!

yes some people never escaped the other programs too. I was thrown off chairs, restrained for hours, hit, thrown against the wall when my back was fractured, rolled in blankets and sat on, made to wear diapers and socks on my hands, screamed at, made to stay up all night doing exercises, starved, smacked in the face, kidnapped back after I tried to escape, smothered, threatened, tortured.

That sounds kind of harsh. Was this some kind of a jail? Reform school? Mental hospital? Church? I was in Sarasota Straight (aka L.I.F.E. Inc.) in Osprey on South Tamiami Trail (Building now called "House Of Lords"), and they had wood church pews, not the plastic chairs. They pulled my arms behind the back of the wood pews and with one oldcommer on each arm they would brace their feet on the back of the pew and WRENCH DOWN on my arms for hours at a time. I remember their laughter as they tortured me, and the angry faced drunkard staff member Dana Fingerle demanding that I be quiet. Dana Fingerle and those other boys have been avoiding me.

It was Kids of North Jersey in Seacaucus NJ.. The leader was Father Cassian Newton. He branched off of the Straight program where his kids went back in the 80's. He used to tell us that he didn't care if we ever go out of the program we can sit in the plastic seats forever because we weren't going anywhere. He said all we were were animals with a with a mouth and a**hole. We had it really bad there.

"Straight Survivors" = Sonder Kommandos. Those WWII concentration camp prisoners who helped the Nazis trick the new arrivals in to the gas chamber, so they could live a few days longer. Do Holocaust survivors ever want to meet and share memories with "Ex- Sonder Komandos? Ever? These "Straight Sonder Kommando Survivors" (Upper Level Phase) have pulled so many stunts with that "penis pump" they found in Sembler's garbage can THEY HAVE HARMED LEGITIMATE VICTIMS (Theirs AND Sembler's victims) from helping to prevent more children from being abused. Straight Sonder Kommando Survivirs claim to represent all of Melvin Sembler's victims, EVEN THE CHILDREN THEY MOLESTED AND ABUSED AND ADVANCED THEIR RANK BY DOING SO. Sembler's victimsare THEIR victims. Me. Maybe they should PAY MONEY TO THEIR VICTIMS. PAY ME MONEY "STRAIGHT SURVIVORS" and set a good example for your dear leader Melvin Sembler. Better yet, MAYBE I'LL COME AND TAKE IT FROM YOU TOMORROW MORNING! Sembler owes his freedom to his ever loyal STRAIGHT Sonder Kommando SURVIVORS!

I know exactly how you all feel. I still get flashbacks and nightmares myself, but I was in Kids of Bergen County/Kids of North Jersey. One of the parents from Straight Incorporated decided to branch off and start another program on his own and they did exactly the same thing to us that was done to the kids in Straight. I thought I was going to never get out after being there for several years. Everything described in the article was done to us. I remember needing medical attention and was denied it also. We were beat up, thrown on the floor, sleep derived, starved, screamed at, made to torture each other, silenced, degraded, humiliated, shunned, and abused. I pray this stops in the future. I have PTSD too and needed a lot of help to get through it after that. We were kept from the outside world in a wharehourse for over 18 hours a day with no windows or fresh air. Leaving was like shell shock. I had to learn how to be in public and part of society all over again. It damaged me. Till this day I have a fear of making mistakes in worry there will be some sort of severe punishment. I still have habits of doing things they programmed me to do while in there. I hope my posts help someone not feel alone in this. We are strong survivors and have lived to tell it.

"...One of the parents from Straight Incorporated decided to branch off and start another program on his own and they did exactly the same thing to us that was done to the kids in Straight..." "Dr" GEORGE ROSS ( and Dr Robert Nay) from Sarasota L.I.F.E. Inc (Formerly "Sarasota Straight Inc) was involved in abusing children, so he moved up north jangling pots and pans like a gipsy wagon and opened abusive programs. He was not a "parent". He was a child abusing swindler. Dr Robert Nay still molests children in Sarasota until today after all these years. Dr Robert Nay, executive staff, actually personally physically tortured me until my foot was bleeding through my tennis shoe, and he left it that way for a week and NO medical attention, clean socks, soap or water. After torturing me personally, Dr Robert Nay left me with dried blood soaking through my white shoe, and left me hat way for a week. I was shifted to a different oldcommer home each night during that week, so I didn't even have change of clothing as I recall. Dr Robert Nay cares for children today in Sarasota. I would like someone to contact him personally and ask him why he did these things to me for no reason, and everybody could see the blood soaking through my white shoe all week. Go ahead. Ask him why.

Our leader was Dr. Newton

Dr Virgil Miller Newton wears priest costume and has changed his name to "Father Cassian". He's easy to find today. He's rich. Loads of money, and a new priest costume, and little boys inside his house. Youtube videos of his waterfront house are quite popular. You can see inside his house through windows if you look at the Youtube videos. In one video the guy paddles his canoe right up that canal to his seawall and porch and back door. You can almost read the label on his stinky underwear hanging on the clothesline. Perhaps you would like to rent a boat and hire a DJ and take all of your friends over there to say "hi" in person and get one more look at that old Nazi Dr. Virgil Miller "Father Cassian" Newton?

Oh I didn't know this was funny. Too bad he hasn't dropped dead yet. And thank Tony K. for throwing me up against the wall after I fractured my back. Would you like to see the xray? Thanks Father Cassian for starving me and ruining my body. Thank them for decieving my parents telling them I would die if I left the program. Thanks for taking advantage of them. Thanks for trying to ruin my parents lives too, nice try. I appreciate all the abuse it was fantastic. It was ok to roll me up in blankets and sit on me in the intake room to hide all my bruises from my parents seeing them. And how great it was to be kept up all night without sleep. How about walking out in the middle of the winter in tshirts and sleeping on the floor with nothing but a sheet or having rats crawl over you at night while your sleeping. Also being screamed at, made fun of, degraded, humilitated, have forks shoved in my mouth and force fed, knocked off chairs and restrained for hours with fat lips from getting smacked in the face and covered with bruises, smothered where I couldn't breath. How about the diapers they made me wear and the socks on my hands. I really appreciate getting my hair chopped off and being kidnapped after I tried to escape the hell hole. It was nice that I had to go to the lengths of wanting to kill myself by swallowing toilet bowl cleaner and drinking bleach that everyone cared enough to get medical help for me, especially when I lost my mind from all the torture and abuse that instead of getting me help I got serious consequences for not following The Almighty God's feedback. You're lucky I didn't die. It was really nice that I missed my aunt and uncle's funerals. I love how its minimized too. I am no longer your little experiment. One day everyone who did this will get yours. Karma is a bitch. Let me know when the nazi croaks so I can spit on his grave. He should have gone to jail but he didn't because they got rid of all the records and he hid his assets with his cult church. One day they will pay and when they do I will applaud.

I second that motion. Whats say you and I go over there today and TAKE BCK what belongs to us, namely ANYTHING OF VALUE THATS NOT NAILED DOWN! You get some guys together and I'll pay for the rental truck. I'll pay for FIVE rental trucks if enough people sign on. Any takers? What are you waiting for?

I'm a survivor of Straight St Pete '80-'81. I made a life after escaping. It's not been smooth sailing. I've horror stories from inside that place (including my own). There was zero medical staff. I never saw a kid withdrawal from any drug or alcohol. If a parent was willing to write a check, they'd gladly take kid(s) in. It was a peer pressure scenario; so, if kid wanted out the kid had to admit to things. If kid had only tried pot, soon they'd find them self lying about other harder drugs. If a girl was a virgin, she'd lie in girls rap that she had sex. Why? That was how to progress & hopefully get to a next phase. The founding forefathers of psychology would have been mortified. Princess Di would be horrified if she knew the truth of what Nancy Reagan dragged her to. Please forgive me, i'm writing off the top of my head w out organization. However, I do have emotional issues from Straight. It was the Identity vs Identity Crisis years of my life. Identity crisis prevailed. Finally, advocating for NORML in '16...it's as if I knew Mel Sembler would block the will of the 71%. Especially when Jeff Sessions rode Trumps coattail to his cherry picked AG position. It became crystal clear. Jeff Sessions & Mel Sembler are friends. Then came the LV casino billionaire Adelson throwing money at Semblers new cause: stop A2 MM & revive tv commercials like reefer madness. Then I learned Adelson's wife wanted her own chain of drug rehabs based on Semblers failed model w tweaks. Finally, it bothers me seeing The Semblers in the news being portrayed as hero's w endless money. It's not healthy. I can't just tear my eyes away. It was imprisonment on the worst scale. We weren't allowed to walk w/out another kid holding our back belt loop, not allowed to go to bathroom w out a kid watching & showering was same. I'd hold my urge for using bathroom for a week (bowels); and, decades later I have daily chronic stomach pain along w a incurable disease in my bladder w no known cause. Finally, our civil liberties were stripped in the cruelest manner possible. I'd agree w previous poster that minimally therapy should be offered. An apology from the Semblers would not be sincere. I would like them to be imprisoned and The Newtons as well. As for my parents, I'm saddened you did that to me as we were a dysfunctional unit for awhile there. If I had any money I'd give it to my parents to repay them for the money scammed out of them. Tough love didn't work for me nor them. Ok, swear last paragraph. I advocate for cannabis legalization. Jeff Sessions admitting he had no idea this many Americans want it legal proves he has been living under a rock. Mel Sembler needs to be educated; and, I'd suggest he simply pull up YouTube and look at what Israel has scientifically proven: the human body has a endocannaboid system that processes CBD and THC. It quite amazing. It would help so many get off opioids and there are plenty of articles on this too. The CannaMom's of Tampa are the women I started following online as they discovered cannabis helps w their kids seizures better than big pharma. Sincerely, Candi Renfroe Gard

MLK 3rd smeared by CNN. Martin Luther King III was SMEARED with cameras shoved in his facce by CNN, MSNBC simply for meeting with Trump. When Melvin Sembler went to the SAME PLACE during the SAME TIME to meet Trump, just like Martin Luther King III did, no news cameras from CNN or MSNBC or any reporters paid any attention. They are "trying" to smear Trump every second of every day with FAKE NEWS, and THEY KNOW what Melvin Sembler did, yet they remain silent? FAKE NEWS!

Democrats Love Sembler too. Democrats never invoke the name of Melvin Sembler to smear Trump or any other Republican. Melvin Sembler works for Trump TODAY. Why don't Democrats or CNN or MSNBC or Rachel Madow or Jake Tapper or Fareed Zakaria or ANYBODY point out THE PHOTOGRAPHS of Melvin Sembler recently meeting with and being hired by Trump? Tenuous connections with The Kremlin is all they spew, FAKE NEWS. Don't you think the grisly details of Melvin Sembler torturing American children is something Trump haters just might possibly think about broadcasting on their left wing cable news channels? If Rachel Madow won't even try to use Sembler to smear Trump, then ITS ALL FAKE NEWS!

Just because one story is not reported does not make other stories fake.

Wait, you think we're after money? That's fairly absurd, since the Semblers are the ones who wound up with all of our parents' money. My mom was especially gullible, having dedicated every spare dime and all of her time to The Seed in `70 on through the day, some months or years after I escaped to adulthood, they actually drew straws to decide who had to go to her after open meeting and tell her to quit coming around cause she was creeping the new parents out. All I want is to die knowing that this can never happen to my grand kids, hopefully with any necessary healthcare provided by young people who aren't 3 degrees from snapping out due to program torture. I don't even care if the principal child abusers ever get punished or not. Life's too short for vindictiveness. I just want people to see them for the monsters they are and quit letting them get away with it.

Rosewood & Statute of Limitations The ROSEWOOD victims had a problem with statute of limitations, but because the crimes were so egregious they were allowed to WAIVE the statute of limitations. Dozier hurt dozens of children, but Melvin Sembler's victims number in the THOUSANDS. What about Dozier statute of limitations? They finally got their day even though they only number in the dozens, and most are dead and silent. Melvin Sembler torture victims number in the thousands, and are alive to speak. Call your representatives and DEMAND they publically DENOUNCE Melvin Sembler IMMEDIATELY .

Straight. Not "str8" is the correct spelling. Stop calling Straight "str8". You got any nicknames for WWII Concentration Camps too? Do you call African Americans "free blacks"? "Medical Pot" is derogatory. Its called "Medical Marijuana", unless you work for Melvin Sembler, then it's called "medical pot". Today Sembler calls terminally ill cancer victims "Medical Pot-Heads". I was tortured at Straight, not "str8".

LETS START WITH IT IS FRAUD TO EVER REFER TO STRAIGHT INC AS A DRUG REHAB OR BEHAVIOR CENTER THEY WERE NEVER LICENSED AS EITHER. THEY WERE A CORPORATION RAN BY BETTY SEMBLER THAT TRAFFICED IN ABUSEING KIDS. Ok , now lets get to what Betty is guilty of;I could go long here but being there almost five years is long enough. I could go on about the blood Betty has on her hands the kidnapping, theft, manslaughter, assisted suicide, murder after the fact, fraud, torture, mental , physical abuse that she shoulders and is guilty of but i wont. She and I both know she is guilty if she WEREN'T she would take me to court now or at some time over the last thirty four years that I have been speaking out and sued me for libel and slander , which she hasn't . So , that must mean its true. The blood is on Bettys hands and we can prove it. We did it with pump gate, and yes Betty still has blood on her hands and all those high society folks caught on to her a long time ago. They just pretend with her. I know cause i hear what they say when she leaves the beauty salon. They can't stand her and what she has done to us. More later. Betty know this , I can prove you are guilty of some of the worst crimes in America. You are evil and as for a mother and grandmother well i feel sorry for your grandkids cause their grandma should be in jail for life. THis is no joke, this isn't a post out of anger. This is true. Many are dead and it's her fault. PERIOD. Sleep well Betty. Someone needs to stop her before more die. She is a true risk to society and with no guilt , I would call that MENTALLY ILL.

Betty is a criminal and that organization was nothing but a criminal organization. I seek no apology, that won't bring back the dead. I do seek an apology from the State, full medical benefits for us all, Betty to be arrested and tried. I ask that you only vote for the DA (next time they run for local or state government) that is willing to prosecute Betty. As the statue of limitations DOES NOT apply to some of the crimes. That we demand she be prosecuted. Her friends should know that they live near a person i deem very dangerous. Unfortunately , Betty will never defend her honor. She hasn't in thirty four years. Perhaps the state can pay for damages. IS THERE AN ATTORNEY OUT THERE WILLING TO TAKE THIS ONE ON?

Sarasota Straight Inc built a new building in Osprey Florida (South Sarasota) and renamed it "L.I.F.E. Inc". That purpose built structure (with windowless rape rooms in the center) was designed for torturing Sarasota children. It's here today, rape rooms and all, for everybody to see, on US Hwy 41, across the street from Sarasota Republican Party Headquarters, and the sign on the front says "House Of Lords". Go in, take a look at the rape rooms. Other Melvin Sembler Cult facilities were housed in his vacant strip malls and warehouses, but the one in Osprey Florida, now called "House Of Lords", was designed and purpose built (Dooley Mack Construction, and their kids in there too), with windowless rape rooms, specifically to torture Sarasota children. WHITE Sarasota children ONLY. Since clients ALL had to sleep in each other's homes at night, maybe that's why Sembler forbid black people from participating. Pseudo Science has always been used by swindlers like Melvin Sembler to justify brutal treatment of blacks in America.. Straight "survivors" (usually high ranking abusers themselves) say victims of "L.I.F.E. Inc." were in "Straight Lite" and constantly try to minimize out torture EVEN THOUGH all of "L.I.F.E. Inc." clients CAME FROM THE CLOSING SARASOTA STRAIGHT INC., along with the SAME BRUTAL STAFF MEMBERS! They simply change their name and scoot I to a different building. I WARN ANYBODY AGAINST MEETING WITH ANYBODY OR ANY GROUP CLAIMING TO BE A "STRAIGHT SURVIVOR'S GROUP", because most of them are the OLDER DEMENTED GENUINE DRUGGIE HIGH RANKING STRAIGHT MEMBERS and they are the ones that DISHED OUT THE MAJORITY OF VIOLENT TORTURE on to the little kids. Nineteen-year-olds torturing twelve-year-olds. Their apologies hollow and meaningless. They invite YOU in to ease THEIR GUILT, while THEY were the GROWN UP ones dishing out the violence ON LITTLE KIDS. At least staff were paid to do it, while these nineteen-year-old druggies took pleasure in torturing LITTLE KIDS. You have been warned.
