I was one of countelss youth who was physically abused and sexually at Green Chimneys.There are currently accounts on Reddit, Fornits and a video outlining the sundry abuses that took place there and continue to this day.
Teens under 18 were put in charge of each of the dorm rooms.
They were called room leaders. The one I had was 13. Every day she beat me and an 8-year-old. We were slapped; kicked, punched and I was forced to lie on the floor while this older girl trod on my back.
Dr. Samuel B. Ross Jr. just uses animals for show as Green Chimneys is more for animals.
Kids have been medically abused and boys abused at the on-grounds hospital, David Hall. Dr. Ross has made kids eat cigarettes; has beaten them (I was beaten) and staff has done the same. Dr.
Ross routinely threatens to send kids to Rockland State Hospital and boys to David Hall. Grades are split into A & B levels and B is lower. Teachers slap and kick kids - I was one of many who was. School was woefully inadequate as kids were not taught on grade level.
Sexual predators were hired and one man was hired in the Girls' Dorm and fired after the girls reported him. Even so, reporters were punished. I was beaten every single day and I learned online that 3 rapists who graduated to serial killers attended Green Chimneys. Eric Napoletano (he's the subject of Pienciak's book "Mama's Boy: The Story of a Serial Killer & His Mother) was there 1974-76; Philip Zagarella in the late 60s and early 70s and Eric Lau in the early 90s.
I read articles where Lau, a David Hall inmate killed a teacher and he had a history of stalking people. Green Chimneys no dout exacerbated the level of disturbance of these individuals. It is a very dangerous place.
Check with the fire dept and area hospitals for kids who were brought in with staff inflicted injuries.Also check with Rockland State as kids were committed there and also medicated at Green Chimneys with no parental consent or information.
