A couple months back we shared this story with you about Hillcrest Elementary School in Turner Falls. They have a “calm down” room, as most elementary schools have, that is used as a temporary place to put out of control children who have become a danger to the rest of the school. Of course it only became a story once this woman:

who of course is from COLRAIN, decided to post it on her Facebook page:

Even though she does not have kids in this school, and does not live in the town of Montague, she still felt it was a good idea to jump to conclusions and get the Facebook lynch mob to go after a bunch of elementary school teachers.


Now in a sane world we would ignore this woman:

Because she is a joke. But since we are not living in a sane world, a lawyer is now involved and he’s going after the school because this woman got the parents of the six year old kid she tutors all fired up about it. This lawyer is now investigating the school, and more than likely he’s gonna go after them with the hope that they settle out of court because it’s cheaper to do that than to litigate. It’s basically how Hector Pineiro makes money, except without drug dealers.

Here’s Western Mass News coverage of the storyWatch the video.

This Mom is blaming the school for the fact that her kid got put in the crazy room. Look, there’s either one of two things that could’ve happened here. Either the kid has special needs that cause him to behave erratically, in which case it is understandable that he acts out and needs to cool down. Or, Mom is your typical 2016 parent who doesn’t hold their kid accountable, gives him whatever he wants, and then expects his school to fix all of her glaring flaws as a parent.

Gun to my head and I am picking option B.

Meanwhile, take a look at this Dad:

Screen Shot 2016-03-30 at 11.18.17 PM

Dude is wearing a Bernie button. On TV. Ummmm….why? The election was a month ago. Does he just wear that thing around 24/7 or was it for the cameras? Either way, the fact that he’s a Bernie guy is the least surprising aspect of this story. Kid fucks up and behaves irresponsibly? Blame someone else. That’s the Bernie way. Trust me, Turtleboy voted for Bernie. We can say that and still keep our hippie street cred.

Meanwhile, check out the statement the Mom gave to the media:

“From this innocent little boy that I took and spent so much time in. His toddler years and baby years. To put him into something like that– it ruined a lot.”

You spent so much time in him? What does that even mean? You mean “spent time on?” This woman can’t even put a sentence together because she’s hungry for a payday. And if she spent this much “time in” her son, and he’s still acting up in class, then I would say she’s failed as a parent. Unless of course this kid has some sort of special needs, in which case she should obviously be sympathetic towards the teachers and understand that they will follow the guidelines that his IEP dictates.

Meanwhile, here’s what the Dad of the other kid said:

“The amount of psychological impact that could have on a 5 or 6 year old long term is immeasurable in my eyes. Hard floor, no rug, white concrete walls with pencil drawings on it, very bare fluorescent light, and it had a little blue mat in the corner,” said Killian’s father, Chris Hughes.

Psychological impact? Oh yea, because this guy right here is a doctor:

Screen Shot 2016-03-30 at 11.27.59 PM

First of all, he said, “un-measurable” not “immeasurable,” because this numbnuts obviously has a very limited grasp of the English language. But he’s definitely qualified to talk about psychological issues. Sure, it looks like he hasn’t showered in days and that pullover he’s got on has probably never been washed (which is why the Bernie button still hangs). But don’t let him fool you, this guy is a clinically trained doctor.

This honestly wasn’t what I was expecting from a Dad. But then again it’s Turner Falls. This is what Turner Falls looks like:











Basically it’s a depressing, run down mill town that used to house immigrants who wouldn’t complain about working 70 hours a week and coming home with the plague. But now it’s filled with runaway shopping carts, boarded up buildings, run down homes, Bernie signs, and broken dreams. Could be worse though. You could live in Colrain.

This guy looks like the poster child for Turner Falls. He look likes he works at the envelope factory and spends his free time drinking dollar drafts on his saved bar stool at the local tavern. I would’ve bet my milk money that he’d be the last guy in town to whine about a harmless room like this:


But then again, there’s a big payday at the end of this rainbow and he probably realizes that this could be his ticket out of Turner Falls. This would explain why he tossed on the Bernie button and pretended to be a doctor for the cameras. If he plays his cards right he could be living in Deerfield by September.

Of course the trashy Franklin County rag known as the Greenfield Recorder (the same classless newspaper that printed the fabricated accounts of two idiots from Orange who blamed the Orange FD for not saving two little girls in a fire) has sided with the hippie parents of the out of control kids. They interviewed one mother of a six year old who spent some time in the room:

According to his mother, Landon has a history of behavioral issues. At age 3, he would clench his fists and pull out his hair out of frustration when he was having trouble expressing himself. Over the last few years, the aggressive behavior simmered down, but when first grade rolled around, new issues bubbled up. He stopped talking.

The school’s calm-down room only made matters worse, she said. She thinks her son’s acting out and self-injury at school was a result of his experience in the room. “I don’t believe that they should use it at all.”

Jesus freaking Christ!! Your kid is pulling his hair out because he’s having trouble “expressing himself??” What kind of hippie nonsense is that? Hey lady, your kid is pulling his hair out because he’s in need of serious psychological help, but instead of giving him that you’re telling him that he’s expressing himself. Then you sent him into a regular ed classroom because you’re in denial that your kid isn’t regular ed, and he started to become a threat to his teacher and the rest of the kids in the class, so OBVIOUSLY he couldn’t remain there while he was behaving like this. Because other kids have a right to a safe learning environment too. Believe it or not the world does not revolve around YOUR kid, who you seem to have no control over.

And remember that parent from above? Here’s what she claims happened to her son:

York said she realizes the importance of crisis intervention spaces, but disapproves of how the room is equipped and used at Hillcrest. She thinks teachers should play music in the space, give the children some soft books to look at, or give them pictures to flip through.

Soft books? Music? Safe spaces? How bout teachers teach instead?? Or should everyone else stop learning until your out of control kid stops having a hissy fit?

Her son also has behavioral issues, but she said school administrators didn’t know how to deal with her son’s episodes. Sometimes he would run from the classroom, and even from the building. She said they used the room to push her son aside, effectively depriving him of a full education.

Wait….what?? Her kid was running from the building like he’s Forest Gump?? And she has a problem with them taking him and putting him in an isolated area? I’m sorry, were they supposed to let him run away and get eaten by bears? Because he’d probably make a nice snack for the bears up there.

Screen Shot 2015-12-28 at 1.20.12 PM

And see that part where she says the school is “depriving him of a full education?” That right there is everything that is wrong with America right now. Her kid is out of control and running away from the building, and here she is blaming the school for depriving him of an education. Ummm, lady, your kid was offered a full education, but he literally ran away from it. Several times.

Her little angel has apparently had a bunch of trips to this room:

Another nurse’s report, dated Nov. 19, states that Landon hit his head on the door of the calm-down room, then complained of a headache. On Nov. 30, a new report said that Landon hit his head on the wall and had a small bump on the center of his forehead. When the nurse tried to apply a cold compression to his head, he threw the ice pack on the ground.

So this kid, who is obviously extremely dangerous, is acting crazy in class. So they put him in this room and he starts intentionally hurting himself. What are the teachers supposed to do? Restrain him? Allow themselves to be physically attacked? No. You just have to put him in there until he calms the fuck down. Then the nurse tries helping him out by giving him an ice pack and the little dooshnozzle in training throws it on the ground. Awesome parenting job right there. I guess it’s not surprising really since his mother has trained him that nothing is ever his fault.

The bottom line is that we have special schools for kids like this. A lot of kids do have behavioral disabilities and they need a separate, non-traditional setting. But please, stop trying to put a square peg in a round hole. If the kid is crazy, he can’t be in a regular ed classroom. Come to terms with the fact that your kid isn’t like the other kids and try to make the best of it, instead of living in fantasy land and demanding that teachers become miracle workers.

    Irresponsible parenting has spread to all levels of society. My kids went to school with kids from wealthy families who were witnessed committing crimes (assault and battery, major vandalism, drug distribution, etc.), but whose parents refused to allow them to be punished. Not much could be done because the kids were minors, I was told.

    Well, I told my kids that some day all these kids would end up with adult criminal records and be unable to get decent jobs or have decent lives. And in one case I told my kids, “that kid will die with a needle in his arm”. He did. While I’m sure his death was a great loss to his family (his obituary was a masterpiece of fiction — you would have thought he was an angel and not a demon), obviously his death was predictable — I predicted it. The other kids can’t hold a job either and keep increasing their arrest records. None of this surprised me, and all my predictions came true. In all these cases IT WAS THE PARENTS’ FAULT.

    In a way, though, I have to be somewhat grateful to these lousy parents. Their kids were living examples of what not to do, and my kids took those examples to heart and learned how to be the responsible, successful adults they are today. Plus, since I am obviously so good at predicting the future, the kids actually listened to my advice!

    Little kids who run away from school make good snacks for bears…yeah, I laughed. Seriously, though, teachers can’t leave 20+ other kids unattended to chase down the runners!

    As far as having music and books in the room: sometimes when kids that young get “out of control,” it’s because they have too many stimuli coming at them at once, and they can’t process it. That is why the room is essentially empty, to undo the “overstimulation.”

    I don’t live in Turners Falls, and I don’t teach little kids, but I do teach in public school. Teachers can only do so much, especially if their school is understaffed on the Special Ed side of things.

    I have NEVER understood the concept of suing a school district; if you live there, you’re suing YOURSELF. Your tax dollars are the ones paying the lawyer ‘s fee, and the fines imposed. Unless, of course, you are not paying any taxes because you’re not working and don’t own a home.

Also, what kind of asshole would I be if I sat here and talked about myself in regards to monetary value? Who cares how much I earn. My worth as an attorney to who? You? Some douchebag sticking up for other douchebags? I rather take a bath in lighter fluid and run around a Gas station with a lighter in my hand.

          Where, oh WHERE do you see me making fun of children, ESPECIALLY children with special needs? Get the hell out of here, stop putting words where they don’t belong.

            Do you even realize how dumb that sounds, “I wasn’t making fun of kids, just the father”? Like I said, just read stupid, biased articles that don’t tell both sides of the situation in truth and just slander the parents. No you don’t believe anything anyone tells you. And you are a Lawyer? I’m friends with a few laywers and when I’m hanging with them I can’t stand how much they pay attention and talk about law. I hope you’re not a prosecutor or defense lawyer because you would fuck shit all up. I can’t even picture how someone as gullible as you cross examining someone.

            I said I wasn’t going to respond, but I will just so I can shut your fat old mouth up. For the LAST TIME I have NEVER made fun of a child, and rather DIE before I do. I am talking about the SHITTY father in this case who barely spends time with his children! No facts you say? I know people personally who know this man……….he is a DEADBEAT DAD.

            End of discussion. Go jerk off somewhere Dick, you are the reason people like Chris can pretend to be a good father because sheep like you believe him and have the audacity to stick up for a HOLIDAY and BIRTHDAY dad.

          Wow, what is it that you don’t get?? Where did I make light of the situation? Im talking about the SHITTY reputation of parents who pretend to be loving, caring, and kind but ONLY when they can make a buck, I know YOU know what I’m talking about.

          Do I agree with this room? NO. I would not allow my child to be put in a room like that. However, I would not attempt to put a special needs child into a regular school knowing they would not be able to tolerate the environment. Children who need a room like this need to be in special education or have a 1 on 1 para. What they DON’T need is a parent pretending like everything is okay, and placing blame o the school system. I’m sure this isn’t the first time this child has unfortunately ended up in this room. I’m sure it’s the first time the thought of a lawsuit came to mind. Disgusting! I couldn’t sleep at night knowing I would be potentially ruining someones life for my financial benefit. Serious words coming from an Attorney, and this is why I’m not cut out for firms. I refuse to take frivolous cases from asshole parents looking for a get rich quick scheme all the while allowing their child be treated a certain way to obtain the dollars.

          Spend time with your children, Chris. It means more to them than having a hefty bank account.

          Now this is enough “serious” for me in one day. I will go back to my “chill” mode now. I will no longer respond to you either. Go talk to Dick, he’s a fat old bored man looking for excitement.

    I think this article is journalism at its worst. I’m not sure if the author had dreams of being an actual reporter or journalist someday but couldn’t tame his hard on over his time as a fifth grade bully, but very little here is based on fact. Its mostly garbage opinions and assumptions. To make fun of this child who clearly needs help, calling him Forest Gump, makes you an asshole.. Not a professional anyone could take serious. You probably sit on your front porch near your Trump sign, and after wiping the spittle from your chin occasionally spout and incoherant “‘Merica!” after one too many at Smitty’s. Then you get straight to your laptop to write your garbage. And Fiesty Lawyer Lady… Tell Walmart you want a refund on your degree. You CLEARLY couldnt hang with a large successful firm making comparisons like your Jeffery Dalmer comparison. Do you just troll articles like this to make yourself feel important and “awesome”? Please, I pray I never need a lawyer who hides behind her computer telling everyone she’s awesome making shitty comparisons.

    Wrote to reporters to find out id children were on IEP`s or not since the use of such a room should be listed on it since it is considered discipline. Received reply stating that both children mentioned were on IEP`s but the calming room wasn`t listed on them. Big mistake like having concrete walls not padded ones in the room. Such discipline should be okayed by parents in writing. I do not know if there was a separate paper signed on it or not but it MUST still be listed in the IEP. I agreed some children need separate schools and that all this upheaval is not good for the other children in the classroom. If the parents knew of the room and didn`t view it and /or make sure its use was in the IEP it is on them. It is up to parents to know what is going on in their child’s school !!!!!

    Apperntly none of you actually know Chris. I went to private school but my parents were close with his grandparents who he lived with. Do you know why? And you won’t ever hear Chris cry about this like most of you would. Him, his brother and sister where all born in S.Boston. They were taken and placed in foster care until his grandparents took them in. Soon after, his mother was raped and strangled in Boston. She is buried in Conway. Has he made mistakes? Yes he has. But one thing I have always known about Chris is that he isn’t a lier. I think the person who said all those things about him is coward. I visited Chris’s grandfather right up until he passed away and Chris was always there helping him and keeping an eye on his health. His grandfather told me that he wanted to put Chris in his Will but when he tried to talk to Chris about it, Chris told him that he didn’t want to be in the Will. Chris has no family and never had anyone to pay for school. I know what Chris and his siblings went through as kids and none of you could have done it. But you will never hear Chris use that as an excuse. He is not a druggie, he has a job on the books and he cares for ALL his kids. If you wouldn’t say this to Chris’s face or you say things that aren’t true without using your real name, then maybe you should not post anything.

          Hey Chris, Richard Harrow here. I know I haven’t seen you in a little bit but when someone told me about this tool bad mouthing you and your family I had to see it for myself and boy was I correct! All cowards who are afraid to put who they really are. That means that don’t truly believe what they say. When I come home on leave I’ll have to get your address and come speak with you and get the details on this issue with the school. I don’t live local anymore (being in the Army for 18 years can tend to keep you away and Afghanistan doesn’t have the best internet lol) so I would have no way of seeing this in the news so I didn’t want to go spouting off about something I know nothing about but I have no doubt that if you say this about the school then it has to be true. I wish I could tell all these people that sit in the saftey of their bedrooms what you have done for your country and community. But that’s what has always made you different, you don’t need everyone to know because you didn’t do it to impress people like this. I know you support Bernie (which shouldn’t even matter) and I view politics a little different then you, but your knowledge of Foriegn Policy is on the spot and I’m a Conservative saying this! lol. When I first staring reading what people were saying about you I said to myself, “This can’t be the same Chris Hughes that I know that these people are insulting”. They have no idea buddy. You just keep fighting for what you believe in. I have no doubt that you know right and wrong. This guy Turtle is exactly what I hate most about people back in the states. It is so low and cowardly to post such a biased article like this. He, has to have skin in the game in order to be so out spoken about this topic. At least you know that I know what you have done and I appreciate it. I see you’re bringing the beard back? Maybe if the contract is renewed they will need you back. Are you actually advising Bernie on the same issues? I didn’t think he would ever agree with your plan but I have heard from some people that he has a more aggressive plan then most republicans. I can see why that might be if he has you under his belt. Shocker! Well I need some shut eye. Long day in the morning. Just ignore these cowards that hide on here and have never left their living room. Just remember how “The Polar Bears” roll. Make sure you continue to “Climb to Glory “. lol

    I agree for the most part with the sentiment of the article although one thing stood out to me.

    “York said she realizes the importance of crisis intervention spaces, but disapproves of how the room is equipped and used at Hillcrest. She thinks teachers should play music in the space, give the children some soft books to look at, or give them pictures to flip through.

    Soft books? Music? Safe spaces? How bout teachers teach instead?? Or should everyone else stop learning until your out of control kid stops having a hissy fit?”

    Not sure why playing music and having a few books in the room has any affect on teachers ability to teach in their own classroom.

    Seems like a little exaggeration. I don’t see anything wrong with her suggestion here.

    • anononon
      March 31, 2016 at 10:13 pm

      “Seems like a little exaggeration. I don’t see anything wrong with her suggestion here.”

      Because: 1. Who is going to be hired to sit and play music in the room? 2. Books can be thrown by angry/out of control children. 3. It might be a lot more entertaining to some kids to go to the music/book/chillax room than to stay in class (says one who used to go to the school nurse rather than to math class).

    Believe it or not, the assessment of the parents is 100% correct.

    Remember all the catalytic converter thefts? Yep, that was him. In and out of jail mulitiple times sure makes it hard to pay child support to his two other kids, doesn’t it?

    The real shame is these two idiots ruined their child’s chances of having a normal life. What will Dad teach him, how to measure out drugs and the proper way to cut exhaust pipe?

I also know that you love nothing more then to bully people around and treat everyone around you like trash. You use people to get what you want not matter the cost. Our history WOW very poor example
          As for me condoning any type of abuse/neglect towards a child, NEVER! I protect children, I work with DCF and care for foster children . Don’t throw around threats cause I am not the same girl you once knew. I am not going to put your personal life on blast for everyone to read. IF for once you are speaking an once of truth my heart goes out to Killian but given your track record this is probably a well thought out plan to make a quick buck . I do believe that Jess is speaking out of concern for her son, she is a good mother to your children.

    I will say it’s not fair to paint the town negative with just pictures shot downtown, there are plenty of really nice homes and businesses in Turners (there’s an S at the end) Falls. You mentioned Deerfield. We went looking at houses there when planning to move to a bigger house, there are just as many dumps in Deerfield. There are in any town. The thing about Montague/Turners is, you will pay a hundred thousand less for the same house on the same amount of land, which makes it more economical if you have a good job.

      Simple solution for a simple mind. Behavioral issues/disabilities go a little deeper than that. I know plenty of kids from good families who have major issues. Children who need help and resources and trained adults to help them. Nothing is that simple.

  • BlackandWhite
    March 31, 2016 at 7:38 am

    Had to think about this one for a bit. Before jumping to conclusions, I would need more info before crucifying the parents or the school.

    Kids (and adults) on the autism spectrum (as well as many other issues) may have difficulty expressing themselves; it’s a developmental delay. If they cannot convey how they feel, they can get extremely frustrated. Special education dept needs to help them find a way to express themselves in an academic environment. Expressing themselves is also part of social skills.

    Are kids with special needs put into this safe room? Are the parents aware of this room? And is the safe room specifically written in their IEP?

    How long of a time span are kids being put into the safe room??

    If a child has repeated behavior issues that require them to be in a safe room at such a young age, then they need to find out “why” the child behaves inappropriately. This is done with Applied Behavior Analysis via special education testing.

    If the child in this article DOES have special needs (such as being on the autism spectrum), then the parents should have been aware of the room AND specifically written in the IEP.

    Need more info.

    • March 31, 2016 at 9:39 pm

      Both have IEP`s , Not written in them according to reporter who did story.

    • anononon
      March 31, 2016 at 10:08 pm

      A lot of three year olds (without being on the autism spectrum) get frustrated at being unable to adequately express themselves, or because they want to be more independent but aren’t allowed (or aren’t developmentally able yet) to do something they want to do.

      That is the first thing that jumped out at me…maybe it’s normal behavior, but maybe the child does have an issue (“pulling out hair” isn’t normal). I just wonder if the child/parents sought help before this point.

      “If a child has repeated behavior issues that require them to be in a safe room at such a young age, then they need to find out “why” the child behaves inappropriately. This is done with Applied Behavior Analysis via special education testing. ” – Very true.
