Stealing is never right! However, all the media coverage surrounding the "Chris Hakes" incident is indeed way out of bounds in my estimation! Granted, as a public official he is indeed under
scrunity, but since when does a person NOT get a second chance? He admitted he did wrong, and the public humilation is surely enough for anyone to endure. But to have to give up teaching and coaching, two things that he loves, and is good at, is beyond retribution! North Adams is not without other scandals, but which have been kept covered up. I say, give him a chance to prove himself! "THERE BUT FOR THE GRACE OF GOD GO I!"

Stealing is not right. Mr Hakes is suppose to be a responsible modle figure for our kids and set a good example(s). For part of his punishment, he should not be a coach, should not be a vice principle and should not have a job with North Adams. I have kids that go to Bellmont, for the conern of my kids and other kids, Mr. Hakes needs to no longer be with the school system. He has set a very bad example and saying it is ok to steal.

He was my teacher and my coach and he was terrible at both. The kids won't respect him now. You have to get him out

Mr. Hakes should should bbr allowed to remain the coach et vice principle under supervision which are no. 1 must enter and leave through theft protective device no2must remain in his office at all times except to go to bathroom and meals under supervision of staff member pockets will be checked when leaving premices for students they must keep backpacks et purses at their sides at all times and last but not least lockers MUST be locked at all times. So Hakes think about this the next time you walk around with your nose in the air you,re not any better than anyone else
