Job Corps investigation finds issues at programs across the country
The national investigation found fighting at some affiliates and in one case a student was found with a white substance on the desk.
The Labor Department's Inspector General found five Job Corps Centers overstated 42% of its placements.
We pulled records from Milwaukee's local Job Corps center and found 11 police reports to the job corps address from 2012 to 2014.
The complaints include a text to the school saying someone planned to 'mimic the Columbine shootings.\"
In one case there was a shooting where a worker heard 2-3 pops and a student ended up with a 'gunshot to the right shin.'
Milwaukee PD was also called for 'thefts from the building.' Some of them included stolen laptops, cell phones, and even a car stolen by a student 'kicked out of Job Corps.'
The cherry on top was a woman 'fired from Job Corps' after she grabbed her pocket knife and threatened an employee.
