WONDER WHAT ELSE THIS APE TRIED TO DO...NOTE, CHILDREN'S RACE NOT DISCLOSED SO LET'S HOPE THEY WEREN'T HUMAN:
By Chris Halsne, Lead Investigative Reporter
An elementary school janitor accused of bullying young students is the focus of an exclusive KIRO Team 7 investigation.
Team 7 Investigators have uncovered reports of custodian Chester Harris pushing, grabbing and threatening students at Leschi Elementary School in Seattle.
Formal complaints have been made to the district and even police; yet, parents said little has been done to resolve their concerns.
“(Harris) has a propensity to harass little children,” said Rev. Robert Howard.
Howard’s kindergarten-aged granddaughter attends Leschi Elementary. In January, he said Harris yelled and pushed the girl in his presence.
“He was intimidating to me because he forced her away from me. It was odd and I was uncomfortable with it. The way he addressed me and stared me down, made me uncomfortable,” Howard said. (SO WHY THE F**K DIDN'T YOU CORRECT IT RIGHT THEN AND THERE??? YOU LET A BABOON MANHANDLE YOUR GRANDCHILD???? I DON'T CARE HOW OLD YOU ARE, HAVE SOME F**KING BALLS REV OR GET SOMEONE TO CORRECT THE ISSUE FOR YOU)
Howard found the incident so troubling he promptly made a complaint to the school.

“I was told that…the principal would instruct (Harris) to not put his hands on any other child and to leave my granddaughter alone,” said Howard.
However, despite that assurance KIRO Team 7 Investigators uncovered another grievance about Harris’s behavior toward children.
In fact, about a month later a mother called 911 to report Chester Harris had grabbed her son, leaving marks on his arm. The district found no wrongdoing.
(OF COURSE NOT)
The police report states Harris, "directed (her son) to go to his 'office' located in the basement of the school on more than one occasion” and that her "son was uncomfortable around (Harris)."
The woman went on the record with KIRO 7 Investigators; however, we’ve agreed to protect her identity due to an unrelated domestic violence case.
“My son is in fear,” she said. “I wouldn’t have called 911 and called the police if I felt that my son wasn’t in danger that day. I don’t know what (Harris’s) intentions were by grabbing my son and trying to force him into his basement office—I don’t know what his intentions were that day.”
KIRO 7 Investigators used an undercover camera to observe Harris and we saw firsthand that the custodian was still engaging and touching children.
In a short video, Harris can be seen grabbing a child and inserting himself in a school yard situation. (INSERTING HIMSELF??? INTERESTING CHOICE OF WORDS FOR AN APE THAT TRIES TO GET LITTLE ONES INTO HIS "BASEMENT OFFICE")
Parents tell KIRO 7 Investigators Harris is a supervisor in an after school music program.
The Seattle School district confirmed that saying, “While Mr. Harris is a custodian, he also works in cooperation with the non-profit Seattle Music Partners after school. He is familiar with the rules of conduct in a school building and has read and followed the school handbook.”
The Rev. Howard questions why a janitor has any interaction with children, let alone a supervisory role.
“It’s strange,” Howard said.
A criminal background check on Harris shows he has a 2002 theft conviction. He's also been arrested and charged with 6 other crimes since 1997 without conviction: an alcohol offense involving a minor, harassment, obstruction, failure to render assistance, possession of marijuana, and fourth-degree domestic violence assault.

KIRO 7 Investigators wanted to give Harris an opportunity to speak about the complaints.
Harris agreed to meet with us outside Leschi Elementary to explain his side. We met him near the school and he declined to speak at length on camera but he maintained his “union rep knows that the story is baseless.”
When we offered to show him the undercover video we captured Harris walked off and refused to view it. ("DAT BE RACIS, MOFO...SHEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEET")
Although KIRO-TV asked a week ago, it wasn't until late Thursday afternoon that the Seattle school district had a response. They say our undercover video from April shows Harris breaking up a potential fight between students after school.
Officials also told us they investigated that February complaint about Harris grabbing a student and found no "wrongdoing." Seattle police also closed that case, but we discovered the officers never spoke with Harris; an apparent oversight that is now part of an internal affairs investigation.
