WHAT KIND OF CULTURE IN TEXAS LETS THIS EXIST FOR 60 YEARS

95 Views
Message 1 of 1

Over eighty years ago, a WRESTLER/TIRE SALESMAN named Cal Farley started a "boy's sports club" for troubled boys. I guess this wasn't private enough so Cal bought some land for a ranch and established CAL FARLEY'S BOYS RANCH.

 

Certainly from the 1950's (but probably before), this is the treatment experienced by many "boys" at this supposed retreat from the hazardous streets of TEXAS cities.

 

Boys were beaten, run over by horses, raped, hit, punched, slapped, choked, kicked, and roped.

 

They had sex with a staffer's wife, had their pets killed, and when they escaped this torture.... hunted down with helicopters.

 

It is hard to imagine a culture in a state that would allow this behavior to exist for over 60 years but after all, this is TEXAS.

 

It is most interesting why this is all coming to light now. The facility was about to have a $1,000,000 dormitory named in honor of one of the biggest abusers during those horrible years and past residents finally spoke up.

 

To show what type of culture exists down in TEXAS, the facility, with all this that has come to light, may still name the dormitory in honor of that abuser.

 

Shameful!!!!!!
