TAUNTON - Taunton police say five people were arrested and three were hurt during a fight at a youth detention center in the city.
Police say the fracas at Taunton State Hospital on Sunday started in a unit that houses juveniles and young adults with emotional and behavioral disorders.
Sgt. Paul Roderick says employees couldn't regain control of about 11 residents fighting in an enclosed yard while others yelled from an upstairs window. About 30 police from three communities using pepper spray and dog units quelled the incident within a few minutes.
Five people, including two juveniles, are charged with inciting a riot, disorderly conduct and resisting arrest. Three people were treated and released from a hospital.
The incident is under investigation.

They are NOT campus police... I believe they are called Youth Service Workers. One of our rookies was a supervisor there for many years and he claimed the pay was horrible ($16/hr) and they had no equipment...

Either way, you couldn't pay me enough to stay locked up with the future gang members of Massachusetts. Thanks anyway...
