Re: “Pinned Down

After reading this article i had many emotions and questions. Why would a newspaper resubmit this article now after 5 years? I worked there during this time as well. Although i was not there on this day, i do remember how hurt and devistated the staff were. This young woman, although very aggressive and extremely overweight, had won the hearts of everyone ( including those who were involved with the restraint) This facility admited children who are not only conduct disorder, personality disorder... but also mentally handicap. When they become aggressive it is scary and intimidating. At times these kids would riot- with 1 staff for 6-8 kids that is very scary when the majority want to defy the rules. Our only defense was to use the training given to us, we were not hired under the assumption we could hurt someone or fight a child- give me a break! WE want to help! Why else would we put ourselves in this position. I still have physical and mental scars from working there. But i agree with Scesneros- we were a family!!! We loved those kids and the staff. I am very confused and hurt by this paper for the passive article implicating the staff without talking with people who actually work with them!
