Georgia Fires Training Director of Camp Where Juvenile Died

by TChris

TalkLeft reported here the death of 13-year-old Travis Parker at a Georgia-run “therapeutic” wilderness camp. Camp counselors held Parker down for more than an hour while ignoring his repeated requests for his asthma inhaler. Since that report, six camp counselors have been charged with Parker’s murder.

Sam Shoemaker, the man responsible for training the counselors, claimed that face-down restraint has been used at Appalachian Wilderness Camp for 17 years. It was reported today that the state fired Shoemaker for failing to cooperate with its investigation when he refused to take a polygraph examination concerning camp practices.
