    Did anyone mention a child committed suicide at Diamond Ranch Academy just before this art festival?

    Was anyone aware that kids were being held in isolation while the festivities were going on outside? Did you know that kids at Diamond Ranch Academy have no way to complain if they are being abused? All of their phone calls to parents are monitored, they are punished if they complain about DRA. And they are not allowed to call the police or CPS if they are being abused, no one hears their screams.

    Google ‘Diamond Ranch Academy’ or visit drasurvivors.com to read what horrifying things are happening when the public isn’t there to witness it. It’s a black mark on Hurricane’s name that children are allowed to play on the same grounds where others are being tortured.
