Third Major Break Out At Tennessee Detention Center


(HUFFINGTON POST) A juvenile detention center in Tennessee is once again rethinking security measures after a third major break out in less than a month.

In this latest incident, three youths from the Woodland Hills Youth Development Center in Nashville reportedly managed to overtake a guard and grab his keys and radio around 11 p.m.

Officials say they were able to escape through a back door and let more detainees out. They managed to open the gate and run out. All but one detainee was captured that night.

The remaining teen, 16-year-old Timothy Willis, was taken into custody early Sunday.

The detention center is having trouble finding the correct security measures to keep detainees inside.

In early September, authorities launched a massive manhunt after 32 teens escaped over Labor Day weekend.

They reportedly broke free from their locked dorms and slipped through a fence surrounding the facility, which is equipped with barbed wire to prevent such incidents. But the teens slipped under the fence.

Two teens are still at large. After that, several detainees broke out of the building and attacked guards in the yard.

Guards at the facility do not carry weapons and must rely on talking with inmates when disturbances happen. Policies are currently being reviewed to see if guards can be given weapons like stun guns to help control unruly detainees.
