Until they are safely returned home, I'd stay away from labeling these children as "trouble makers". The full facts of the case are still unknown.

If these 3 teenagers were in a juvenile detention center and walked away, why did it take this long for the information to be made public? No matter what the reason was for these 3 underage girls to be at this center, adults are responsible for their safety, besides knowing where they were at all hours. How did these 3 teenagers walk away without their disappearance being notice at a bedcheck, breakfast, whatever on the day or night they walked away. Someone was not doing their job. It took 8 days for a public announcement; did it also, take 8 days for their parents or guardian to be notified? Come on, a lot can happen to anyone missing 8 days. Let us pray the girls are safe and pray for their anxious families too. No m atter,
