CABOT, Ark. (KTHV) - A convicted murderer was found installing gym equipment inside Cabot Junior High North last Monday.
The school ordered new gym mats from Arkansas Corrections Industries, a part of the Arkansas Department of Correction that manufactures athletic equipment.
The company uses inmates that have earned trusty status to install the equipment, leading 61-year-old murder convict Glen Green into the Cabot Junior High halls.
"To say that I was disappointed and frustrated and even angry would be an understatement," said Cabot superintendent Dr. Tony Thurman.
"With all the schools shootings and everything going on I'm shocked," added Cabot resident and parent Jeanette Talik.
Cabot has been using the company for more than 35 years, saying they've trusted the ADC's judgment about who they hire to do work, saying they've never felt threatened, until now.
