Ten people were hurt during a big brawl at the center Monday. There's even talk of a possible worker walkout.
There is no question many staffers at the juvenile detention center are unhappy. Many say they are worried for their safety at work.

We think we can safely state that once again, in Cook County, the inmates are truly running the asylum.
