"Lincoln Hills failed to give Racine County details of youth's abuse for weeks"

From The Journal Times.com:

"RACINE COUNTY — County officials were not given the details of a Racine County youth’s 2012 beating and sexual abuse at a detention center in northern Wisconsin until nearly three weeks after the incident occurred, county officials stated Monday.

"According to an email sent to The Journal Times, county Human Services Department staff were informed on Jan. 17, 2012, by staff at the Lincoln Hills School for Boys in Irma that the youth had 'been transferred for disruptive behavior' but were given no other details.

"Beginning on that same date, department staff began making repeated requests for additional information, the email states.

"It was not until Feb. 1, 2012 — more than two weeks after the Jan. 13 assault — that department staff were told what had happened.

"'The Racine County Human Services Department acted promptly in attempting to notify the subject youth’s mother of the assault,' according to the email. 'The exact date/time of notification is unknown.'"
“Almost 50 years in the legal system and I’ve seen and heard a lot, so (I’m) not naive as to what ‘prison’ is all about. But the indifference in this sordid tale is absolutely inexcusable.” 
— Retired Racine County Circuit Court Judge Richard Kreul in February 2012 letter to Gov. Scott Walker

Sex offenders should have their nuts nailed to the wall inside of a small shack, be given a rusty knife, and then set the shack aflame.  But that's just my opinion.

Scott Walker knew of criminal acts - but failed to act - thus Scott Walker is a criminal.

Wisconsin is currently a rogue State and being operated by criminal elements at all government levels.
