Kenosha County Is A Leader In The State For Sending People To Prison – Why?

Wisconsin has sent 3,152 people to prison From April 1, 2023 to March 31, 2024.

  1. I went to HS with Scott Hodges, and his wife, Airielle Blise-Hodges who is (or at least was) a teacher at KTEC. Knowing both of them, this is entirely unsurprising. Scott was a real D’bag.

  2. Gee, maybe all the pornography in the schools is affecting students AND teachers! Maybe if the KUSD School board got back to promoting the basic subjects rather than perversion, there would not be so many teachers preying on children!

      1. It’s called sarcasm, duh. That’s what these lgbtp pedos teach in school. Just like Weimar, Germany back in the day……

        1. This isn’t a TV show, it’s not going to be solved in an hour, minus the commercials. I’m just grateful as hell that there is a place like Kenosha County eye where we get this information at all much less on demand of someone else’s timetable.

  3. Scott Hodges is an attention-seeking dbag. He’ll actually get on the stage during a STUDENT performance and do the worm to try to steal attention away from the kids back onto himself. He had staff make pictures of his face and hid them all over school like, “Oh what fun Hodges needs attention again.” It’s so cringy. He’s clearly a narcissist.

    1. He does stuff like that to entertain children, it’s a school. Also, the pictures around the school were a prank towards Hodges.

    2. He did this at a children’s choir performance I was at. Tried to steal the show. It was gross. Something is wrong with that guy.

    3. Hodges isn’t the teacher in question he is the principle. If you don’t like him good for you but those are some life destroying accusations without actually knowing. In fact completely wrong!!! Has absolutely nothing to do with Hodges.

        1. Now that the name is out there hows that Mc footinthemouth??? Maybe someone should accuse you of something you didn’t do

  4. An OWI..and he still teaches kids…WTF where do we live is it still plant earth? Also please do BACKGROUND checks on the SUB for this teacher or his permeant replacement! If these types of teachers are going to slip through the cracks I wonder how many more are out there? DO BETTER KUSD!

    1. An OWI shouldn’t get one fired for being a teacher. Multiple OWIs, fine. But one? It’s not like a teacher cannot perform professionally because they got pulled over after having one too many.

  5. Nah cuz wtf mr hodge does not try to get all the attention he is just trying to make school fun all of you guys are dumb.

  6. Personally all this stuff with kusd and every kenosha school going from the teacher at ita the security officer at Bradford and a teacher at ktec? And going to Bradford and knowing This happens at schools is uncomfortable and makes me not feel safe going to school anymore. Kusd is the worse school district ever. Don’t y’all have to run background checks ? How do you not see any of it. It’s a unsafe school district CANT even feel safe going to school with teachers etc like this.

  7. We need to focus on supporting these victims even though we will never know their names. They were scared, embarrassed, didn’t understand what was happening, he took advantage of their trust that some of them worked so hard to gain with anybody. He blew that completely out of the water. If it was my daughter I would be lighting this town up! I would hold KUSD and that psycho Tamarra Coleman accountable. It is their responsibility to provide a safe environment for all students. They completely let them down and now these girls are going to have to live with PTSD from the trauma of the whole situation. He needs to be put on a sexual offender list so he can never work in a school again. Tamarra you need to pray that it wasn’t my daughter because I would be coming after your job. We need to hold KUSD accountable.

  9. During Covid, each school was able to send out MULTIPLE messages on close contacts your student may have had with someone COVID positive. Everyday I had messages.
    Tell me why the school was capable of notifying us of cold symptoms but cannot notify parents about a child predator who was clearly grooming children. I do not care if charges will not be filed. As a parent, I have the right to know who my kids are around. WTF has our world come to?! Yes protect the victims but whoever this teacher is, it needs to be revealed so parents can talk to their kids. I hate KUSD!

    1. This is the copy and paste answer I got from Ktech west HR

      “As a public sector entity, Kenosha Unified understands the importance of transparency and accountability in personnel matters. Although very little personnel information can be shared to adhere to legal and ethical guidelines, please know that we take all claims of inappropriate behavior seriously and investigate each incident to the fullest extent.

      As a district, we provide just cause to our employees, which ensures decisions regarding employment, promotion, discipline, or termination are based on fair and objective criteria, such as established policies and applicable laws. It also helps maintain trust and confidence among employees and our community with regard to our decision-making process. Our investigatory process is extremely comprehensive to ensure due process is adhered to as required by law, which often requires a great deal of time and effort.

      Background checks are a part of our pre-employment process. However, they only indicate existing criminal records for which an individual has already been convicted.”

    3. I know who the teacher is and most people would be very surprised and it would cause many problems for the school bc this teacher is close with a lot of students and families kusd is scared for there lives and same with Ktec west

  10. One after another sick people in this world need to be dealt with very seriously and not like this libtarded county tends to deal with shit like this either!! They need to spend more time going after and prosecuting these sick people and less time trying to prosecute the guys who broke a dish or knocked over a damn chair in their own damn house and getting them for criminal damage to “THIER OWN PROPERTY “!!!

  11. I don’t know why y’all are trying to put the blame on Mr. Hodges. Saying he’s an attention seeking person, even if so, what does that have to do with this situation? There are victims here and y’all are worried about the principal. And if you don’t know Mr. Hodges personally or work/ go to school with him why are you making up opinions? He’s in a school full with children, of course he’s going to act “goofy”, it’s not being self centered.

    1. True, it seems a very unnecessary diversion from the problem with the teacher, to concentrate so hard on the principle. This may be a good forum to vent on, but can also be confusing since many people who comment here, apparently read on a level that resulted from Kenosha public schooling. 🤣
