I started 77 or 78 put on probation for shoplifting. Lost my parents 78 and went to foster and group homes. I was a feral child 14 years old at 78.I ran wild till 80 or 81 arrested for car theft. Sent to Riverview School for Boys and can’t remember what dorm I was in. It wasn’t the pussy dorm but it wasn’t the toughest dorm either. I spent 9 months there. My brother died so they let me out to my aunt and uncle who owned a farm. My caseworker there who hold the keys to my freedom was Mr. Luveal, if I’m pronouncing or spelling the name right. He was black, lived in Columbus and had a big cist on his face. Years later I saw him at St. Stephens on 17th. Back then they didn’t deal with mental health with the juvenile inmates. I know because I would get sent to my single room for at least a week at a time due to depression. I didn’t know that was what it was at the time nor did they. The staff, some were good and some bad. I remember two good ones, Ms Cully who was a sweet black woman and a big athletic black man who played sports with us. I am sorry I can’t remember his name. Darrell Anthony

Was that me that submitted "Riverview is cool. We could kick ass."? Well that is a stupid comment. What’s cool about going to reform school? We weren’t a team there that would kick other institutions ass. If anything, we would fight each other over stupid childish shit, and maybe adolescent prison rules and I’m not sure we were anyways close to prison rules. Riverview helped me some ways like don’t go to adult prison because you’ll have to lose your humanity and have to be ruthless. Their knowledge of mental health or explaining it to me left a lot to be desired. Mr. Leveau who held the keys to my freedom didn’t explain it. I’m not saying it was his fault. It was a different time then around 79 or 80. Maybe they didn’t know better back then. Darrell Anthony P.S. I think I was the Miami dorm.

The only photo is public satellite imagery, but I’ve got a feeling that the state of Ohio youth authority may restrict that even though the place is closed.
