I was just wondering if anyone seen a fight with security taking down a teenager. Just wondering if anyone witnessed it. From what I heard they went a little overboard. Maybe security should of been a little more concerned of why the place was serving minors. I know the teenager was taken to the hospital and still is bad shape.

Can't say that I have heard of them taking down a teenager, but I have heard of some pretty aggressive acts on their part. Can't say how I feel about it. Nips stuff in the bud that's for sure. It's sad a teen got injured, but nowadays, you can't really say someone isn't dangerous because they are a teen. Where were this kid's parents? Did they condone the drinking?

Smart, secure, competent law enforcement personnel can be very aggressive without putting a nineteen year old in intensive care with internal injuries.
The kid is not a terrorist, didn't hurt anyone nor did he want trouble.
Why didn't they just handcuff him instead of continuing to gang beat him after he was down and under their control..?

I know these security guards were off duty chicago cops.. Security must of been a joke. You take down a teenager and get him to the ground. You had control of the matter but you (all of you) continued to beat on him while he was down. I feel its time for this Willow brook Ballroom to look into hiring a different Security firm. Sometimes things cant be avoided which I understand. This was one of those times were smart common sense and experience was not used. I feel this young man was gang beaten (in my opinion) OK Moderator, is this okay or you going to remove this comment????????
