|4||HDClosed CaptioningVideoLost Souls of Pennhurst||In 1908 Pennhurst Asylum in eastern Pennsylvania was built to house and care for epileptic, disabled and "feeble-minded" patients, but after a few years Pennhurst became dangerously overcrowded, thanks in large part to the controversial Eugenics movement sweeping the country. As patients flowed in, the staff became overwhelmed. The result was rampant abuse, neglect and horrific conditions. After almost 80 years in operation Pennhurst was finally shut down, thanks to the heroic efforts of a local journalist and a few brave former patients. However, the spirits of the patients and abusive employees still roam the halls of the asylum today, sending chilling messages to visitors and reminding them of the tragic lessons learned during one of the darkest times in American history.||42:14||$2.99||View in iTunes|

A program aimed at those who still believe in Santa Claus, to list anything this bad under 'nonfiction' is to do a disservice to good science. Save your money!
Science Vs Reality
It seems as if some still dont believe in The Soul and Heaven and Our faith in GOD, Science Takes a mean Stabb at us who believe in Spirits. I guess they have never gone on a Ghost Hunt alone or used a Ouji Board Alone. There are trickseters out there but most of all the History of Hauntings is Much Greater than a Sharlottin bag of tricks or Science's I dont know but im sure there is an exsplanation for everything LOL i hear that one all the time when Science is found Wrong again!
Haunted History = Ture History
there are so many feeble minded people like "linterdit" that does not understand how things happend. stuff like the Pennhurst and Salam episodes i can relate to in so many ways. i get it, it's not a reality show or something that is trending. this show is about documentaries about real history. i show people stuff like the Pennhurst episode and they start to under things more clearly. as someone as i look up to says "equal rights, equal lefts" - by OTEP. what i mean by that is we all deserve our rights we all walk down the same road. the Pennhurst episode rasies awareness for people like me born with disabilities.
