so now that he is out in the public eye, the inmates with cell phones and internet access will be trying to get him to "take them down" and then make that "accusation" and the state and ccpoa will kick him to the curb and say he used "excessive" or "unnecessary" force. Then loose his job and the inmate will sue and win,,,,

The benefits of placing your child in a boxing program far outweigh the risks. They also go beyond the obvious assets of regular exercise and fitness. Boxing instills confidence, esteem, and, most importantly, self discipline. For more information you can get about Boxing Equipment,free from Boxing in Connecticut
