(Colorado Springs, CO) -- A violent outbreak at the Springs youth corrections center is undermining recent reports by officials of improved safety there. Police say a riot broke out last week in one pod that started by a search for a missing pencil. They say four staff members were punched, kicked and bitten as they tried to get juveniles into their holding cells to search for the pencil. Guard police and the facility director were also attacked.
