CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - The riot at the Cuyahoga County Juvenile Justice Center Monday sent two people to the hospital and left hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of damage.
Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Michael O'Malley admitted, sadly, that it doesn't surprise him this riot happened.
He said he's been saying for months there needs to be more staff at the juvenile justice center, a place that houses juveniles accused of multiple accounts of very violent crimes.
"This riot was caused by people who, while they are juveniles, they are a very violent group," O'Malley said.
O'Malley argues unless changes are made, we could see a repeat.
O'Malley says as soon as the investigation is finished, he intends on charging those involved.
