One day, Stanley was walking from school when suddenly a pair of sneakers fell from the sky.
Where did these come from?
Shortly after, he was arrested and accused of stealing the shoes, which he later found out belonged to Clyde Livingston; a famous baseball player.
I didn't steal them.
Tell that to the judge.
Stop there! You are under arrested for stealing those shoes.
Stanley was sent to court, and his parents couldn't afford a lawyer. His trial was delayed since Clyde Livingston was going to attend and testify that they were his shoes.
Are these your shoes?
Yes, those are the shoes I donated. I can’t imagine what kind of horrible person would steal from homeless children.
Where are you going to go Camp Green Lake or jail?
Stanley was given two choices to either go to jail or to Camp Green lake.
Stanley you are guilty. I sentence you to 18 months at Camp Green lake.
I've never been to camp, so Camp Green Lake.
Stanley was sent to Camp Green lake; a juvenile detention center for bad boys.
Camp Green Lake
Camp Green Lake wasn't at all what Stanley imagined it to be. It had no lake, no water but a scorching sun. The only shade that was there was the one next to the Wardens cabin, and no one was allowed there.
