This is absolutely absurd. First of all, it is an allegation and those kids lie constantly. Constantly! This gentleman should not be named and should not be in the news. These youth assault staff all day every day and nothing happens to them. Why don't you look into the situation before you print this garbage? An allegation is just that. Innocent until proven guilty. And from experience, 99% of the cases are unfounded because the youth lie. And why? Because they don't like the staff and they know they can get away with it. To all of you state workers out there. Keep fighting or get out. Something needs to change.

I agree with you %100. That being said, even if the guy did push the little bastards up against the wall so what. Getting jacked up against the wall for act like a shit is what is needed more these days. When I was young and I puffed up my chest or sounded off on authority my old man would yoke my ass to the wall in a heartbeat. Hated it back then. Love him more then ever for it now.

My Father and MY teachers in the 80's did exactly that . If I annoyed them all class long , he or she would ruin me ...

If I pissed my Father off he would correct my behavior. Just as I do ...

If you don't know your parents or have none your life will be VERY strained .

Maybe, just maybe, if these kids had fathers that stepped up and did their job of putting these kids in their place when they acted up. These kids would not have been sent to Industry in the first place. Sounds like this guy was only doing what their daddies were supposed to. If it even really happened. Pushing up against a wall equaling child endangerment. Give me a break.
