The parents of two students who were attacked in separate incidents at Minneapolis' Edison High School last week are speaking out about the recent outbreak of violence among students.
On Monday, the parents of a 15-year-old Edison student told 5 EYEWITNESS NEWS their daughter was sent to the hospital with a concussion after three girls attacked her in the school's cafeteria.
On Thursday, another 14-year-old Edison student was knocked unconscious by another student and was taken to the hospital by ambulance. The victim's parents told 5 EYEWITNESS NEWS their daughter also suffered a concussion and has another brain scan this week.
The mother of the 14-year-old injured in last Thursday agreed to talk with 5 EYEWITNESS NEWS under the condition the family's name would not be used.
"This is an assault on my daughter and it was unprovoked," the mother said. "When you walk up to someone and punch them in the face it is an assault, when you knock someone unconscious and they are defenseless and you continue the attack, it is an assault."
The girl's mother said she is in the process of removing her daughter from Edison and is not happy with the current level of security and safety at the Northeast Minneapolis high school.
"I had warned the school about this girl who was bullying my daughter," the mother said. "And, they did not protect her and after I got the call I cried in the car all the way from my job to the hospital."
"I never thought I would be bringing my daughter to a brain trauma specialist on a regular basis, to make sure everything is OK, all because of a terrible attack inside the school," she said.
Hardy Armstrong is an Edison parent who told 5 EYEWITNESS NEWS his daughter was also punched in the face by another student after his daughter tried to help the girl who was knocked out.
Armstrong said he met with school leaders at Edison back in October to warn them about what he said was "an escalation" of violence at the school and at some outside school activities.
"I met with the principal and the principal, basically, brushed me off," Armstrong said. "Eventually, I got up and walked out of the meeting because it did not seem like they were doing anything."
"We have counselors, social workers, mediators and other things on our campus for students," Warne said. "Unfortunately, there are times when we cannot predict when students will reach for violence to solve their conflicts."
The Minneapolis School District told 5 EYEWITNESS NEWS there were eight assaults at Edison in the 2017-18 school year and so far, on record, there has only been one assault in the 2018-19 school year.
Colin Flaherty (Author of Don't Make the Black Kids Angry and White Girl Bleed A Lot) Commentary News Video "Kansas City teen accused of shooting zTrip driver 20 times during robbery" black violence hostility bloody murder assault shot ruin society suspect charged senseless shooting
KANSAS CITY, Mo. — An 18-year-old Kansas City man is facing federal charges in the shooting of a driver for zTrip taxi service earlier this month.
Derron D. Nevels is charged with interference with commerce by threats, violence or robbery and with using a firearm during a crime of violence.
At about 8:35 p.m. on Dec. 4, the victim was found in the 900 block of Benton Boulevard suffering from approximately 20 gunshot wounds to her upper body, police said.
Family members identified the shooting victim as 53-year-old Teresa Meitl.
The crime led to Meitl being treated in the intensive care unit with severe injuries.
“They had to remove her spleen, wire her jaw shut, work on her liver, set her arm,” Aponte said as her voice trailed off. “From what I’m hearing they removed full bullets from her. Not fragments. Actual bullets.”
According to court documents, the vehicle's surveillance footage showed the driver picking up the suspect shortly after 8 p.m. Once arriving at their destination, the suspect told the driver he was waiting for someone to come out with cab fare. At about 8:15 p.m., surveillance footage showed a second suspect opening a door of the taxi and speaking to the first suspect.
Timothy Garrison, U.S. Attorney, Western District of Missouri, called it an ambush. He said Meitl was talking with Nevels about her grandchildren and the cold weather when she was shot multiple times.
"From the backseat, Nevels aimed a 22 caliber rifle at his driver's head and held his cell phone in his left hand apparently trying to film, trying to document his crime," said Garrison.
Surveillance footage allegedly showed Nevels putting the long rifle to the victim's head and demand she give him everything. The victim grabbed onto the rifle, and a struggle ensued. The second suspect then began attacking the victim and she let go of the weapon. The first suspect then allegedly fired approximately 21 shots at close range.
Several minutes later, another person can be seen on the taxi's surveillance video opening the rear door and asking if the driver is ok and if she called the police. The person then takes a cellphone from the back seat and leaves. Court documents state that officials believe that person was the alleged shooter returning to retrieve his phone.
Investigators later determined a cellphone connected to Nevels was used to call the cab.
He was arrested Monday and interviewed by investigators. According to court documents, he changed his story several times about his knowledge of the robbery but eventually admitted his gun was used in the shooting.
At the time of his arrest, Nevels was found carrying a rifle that investigators said appeared to be consistent with the one used in the zTrip shooting.

SOUTH ST. LOUIS COUNTY (KMOV.com) - Monday morning, chaos erupted in the cafeteria at Oakville High School. Video shows students tackling a staff member to the ground before pulling and kicking him.
By Kristen Taketa Jun 27, 2018
Hamilton is just one example of St. Louis Public Schools’ teacher shortage problem. During the school year, it’s typical for the district to have 100 or more teaching vacancies, among fewer than 2,000 total teaching positions.
When teachers are missing — either because of position vacancies or absences — it hurts student learning. Students often are funneled into other classrooms or handed over to subs. The problem is compounded by the fact that high-poverty schools in north St. Louis often have the hardest time finding and keeping teachers, said Halliday Douglas, director of talent strategy and management for St. Louis Public Schools.
Hamilton was short on teachers from the time school began last fall, when the principal learned that a special education teacher had quit over the summer to take another job.
By May, half of Hamilton’s teaching staff, or nine people, had left the school. At one point, Principal Starlett Frenchie needed five substitute teachers, on top of the two permanent subs the district had already assigned to Hamilton for the school year. But she could get only three.
Frenchie said she could only guess as to why those teachers left. The district conducts exit interviews with teachers who leave, but she said she didn’t receive reports from those interviews.
She suspects pay is part of it. In the 2016-2017 school year, the median salary for Hamilton staff was $39,015 a year, which is the district’s starting salary.
But the classroom environment, specifically student discipline, may also play a role. Last year was the first year the district halted out-of-school suspensions for kindergartners through second-graders.
The policy was intended as a way to keep students in school and learning. But that year, Frenchie lost all her K-2 teachers.
Frenchie said her staff could use more resources to meet the demands of such a policy, such as training on how to manage distressed or unruly children in the classroom. She could also use more staff to handle such students in school. Hamilton has an in-school suspension coordinator whose job is to help pupils work through their problems, but the coordinator has been absent so often that there hasn’t really been an in-school suspension program.
“Teachers are coming out of college. They’re not coming from a place where they’re equipped to deal with some of these social-emotional traumas that we experience in urban education. As a result, it tends to create traumatized adults,” said Frenchie, who has been principal at Hamilton for seven years and is the district’s elementary school leader of the year.
JOB OFFERS PENDING
This year, Westlund’s office screened all applications within 48 hours. The district interviewed candidates by phone, then brought them in for an interview with multiple principals. Candidates have to teach a sample lesson and hear feedback on their teaching.
Frenchie said she liked the new hiring process and had hopes that she would have success in keeping teachers in the coming school year. She has offers out to fill all nine teaching positions she needs for the fall.

Shocking footage has emerged of the moment two men were ambushed and bashed unconscious in an “unprovoked, random, senseless and brutal” attack by a group of 20 youths on the St Kilda foreshore.
The victims were left unconscious, and one was robbed, after being repeatedly kicked and punched in the random assault on December 1.
The attack was one of a number of violent incidents that prompted calls for Port Phillip Council to permanently ban alcohol on St Kilda's foreshore during summer. The council, bowing to rising pressure from businesses and police, voted to introduce the booze ban last week. It is expected to come into force next week.
The latest attack comes a month after a similar incident when a young chef and a 23-year-old man were set upon outside Donovan's restaurant.
CCTV footage of the latest incident shows the victims walking along the foreshore about 11.15pm when they were set upon by up to 10 youths, before another 10 joined in.
The victims tried to walk away, but they continued to be hassled by the group before things escalated further.
A 24-year-old Burwood East man suffered a broken nose and facial bruising in the attack. As he lay motionless on the ground, the offenders rifled through his pockets, stealing his wallet and mobile phone.
His friend, a 26-year-old Wheelers Hill man, tried to intervene in the attack, but was kicked in the head, chest and stomach until he collapsed on the ground.
The group is described as being African in appearance, and are believed to be in their mid-teens to early 20s. Police have released images of the a group of males they wish to speak to.

New picture emerges of victim as parents claim it's all a smear" black teen mob violence crime murder mayhem chaos ignored by school administrators giving false impression of safety
Scott Travis and John Maines Dec 7, 2018
From rapes to arsons to guns, Florida’s school districts are hiding countless crimes that take place on campus, defying state laws and leaving parents with the false impression that children are safer than they are.
Many serious offenses — and even minor ones — are never reported to the state as required, an investigation by the South Florida Sun Sentinel found. A staggering number of schools report no incidents at all — no bullying, no trespassing, nothing.
Even murder has been ignored. A student at Coral Gables Senior High got a 40-year prison sentence for a fatal stabbing in 2009, a case that attracted national attention, but the Miami-Dade County school district never reported it to the state.
PUBLISHED: 09:02 EST, 26 March 2012 | UPDATED: 23:55 EST, 27 March 2012
The new claims, revealed in a leaked report, paint a different picture of a teenager who frequently found himself in trouble with authorities.
It was also revealed that he might have attacked a bus driver, according to a Twitter account that it is claimed belonged to the teen.
The Miami Herald claims that in October, he was caught with a 'burglary tool' - a flathead screwdriver - and 12 pieces of women's jewellery. Martin insisted that they did not belong to him.
The fresh claims are likely to be seized upon by supporters of George Zimmerman who say the teenager launched an unprovoked attack on the neighbourhood watch volunteer moments before Trayvon was shot dead.
The revelation about the suspension in October, in a school report obtained by the Herald, was condemned today by Trayvon's family as part of a campaign to smear their dead son.
The boy's mother said: 'They killed my son and now they're trying to kill his reputation.'
The conservative news site the Daily Caller and the blog the Wagist claim they have unearthed a Twitter account, which has since been taken down, that belonged to the teen.
Among many Tweets, the Wagist claims, is a message from his cousin implying that Trayvon attacked a bus driver.
'Yu ain't tell me yu swung on a bus driver,' a user Tweeted to Travyon's alleged account five days before he was killed.
The Daily Caller, says it has published 152 pages of tweets downloaded from Trayvon's account. The site says Trayvon went by the Twitter handle NO_LIMIT_N***A.
Meanwhile, Joe Oliver, Zimmerman's longtime friend, told Good Morning America Monday that no matter how the case comes out -- even if the shooting is ruled justified -- 'George has virtually lost his life, too.'
Mr Oliver said Zimmerman has gone into hiding and is in fear of his life over the public outcry for his arrest. A fringe group, the New Black Panther Party, has offered a $10,000 reward for his 'capture.'
The October suspension was officially for graffiti, after he and some friends wrote ‘W.T.F.’ on a school locker.
According to an October report of the incident by the Miami Dade Schools Police, obtained by the Miami Herald, Trayvon never received any punishment for the jewellery because he said it was not his and it belonged to a friend.
In total, he had 12 pieces of mostly women’s rings and earrings in his bag.
Ben Crump, a lawyer for Trayvon’s parents, said that they ‘never heard anything like this about a bag of jewellery….And anyway, it’s completely irrelevant to what happened February 26.
The hearing in front of the House Judiciary Committee comes as nearly three quarters of Americans believe Zimmerman should be arrested, according to a CNN/ORC International poll.
Only 11 percent of the people surveyed believe Zimmerman should not be arrested. The rest are unsure.
The unanimity against Zimmerman's shooting even crosses racial and lines. About 67 percent of whites support his arrest and 86 percent of non-whites. Majorities of Republicans, Democrats and independents are all on the same page.

By Paul Bowers Oct 29, 2018
On the first day of school this fall at Liberty Hill Academy, a 14-year-old boy told an assistant principal that he’d like to see the administrator out on the street so he could bust his head, according to a North Charleston police report.
The threat could have been seen as a bad omen, a sign of yet another difficult year at Charleston County’s alternative school for at-risk middle-schoolers. Liberty Hill has come under scrutiny since a handful of ex-teachers described its environment as lawless, dangerous and demoralizing.
Teachers are getting 28 days of professional development this year, far more than at the district’s other schools. They learn about childhood trauma from mental health counselors, work out plans for the “restorative circles” where students open up about their emotions, and practice using the school’s computerized learning system.
Last school year, teachers were frustrated when their discipline referrals piled up in a backlog and Haynes deleted 159 referrals without action. This summer, Haynes met with them to get input on what should be deemed a “major” referral and what could wait for a day or longer.

A year-and-a-half teaching at Liberty Hill Academy nearly broke Sandra Lemen.
Middle-schoolers at Charleston County’s alternative behavioral school threatened to kill Lemen, hit her with a trash can, and made graphic sexual comments and propositions, according to the longtime teacher who lost her job this year.
They stood on the desks and openly mocked her. They left class and roamed the halls with impunity. Her room was equipped with an intercom button to request backup from the front office, but she said students sometimes physically blocked her from pressing it. And even when she filed formal reports with the principal’s office, Lemen said she didn’t get the help she needed.
“The students ran the school,” she said.

CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - Documents from the Charleston County School District show thousands of disciplinary reports went unprocessed for an entire school at a CCSD alternative school.
Liberty Hill Academy is CCSD’s K-8 alternative program and day treatment center that has around 100 students.
For the 2017-18 school year there were 2,194 processed referrals, or disciplinary reports, for Liberty Hill Academy. For that same school year, there were an additional 1,721 referrals that went unprocessed.
One of the students who went to Liberty Hill Academy last year was Cristell Wooten’s 13-year-old son.
“It was a very short amount of time because he was getting harassed from day one,” Wooten said. “There was not one day my son didn’t get hit, wrote on, teased, tripped, things thrown at him. Like every day. Every single day.”
For the 2017-18 school year there were 2,194 processed referrals, or disciplinary reports, for Liberty Hill Academy. For that same school year, there were an additional 1,721 referrals that went unprocessed.
The referrals include 348 incidents of major disruption, 175 threat incidents, 109 incidents of hitting, kicking and pushing students, 62 incidents of fighting, and 82 simple assault incidents. Those numbers were provided by the district through the Freedom of Information Act.
Haynes said the school has taken measures to keep up with disciplinary referrals after having nearly 4,000 last year school year.

By a vote of 11-1, the jury decided that capital punishment was an appropriate sentence for Bessman Okafor in the 2012 death of Alex Zaldivar, a 19-year-old who was set to testify against Okafor in a separate trial.
The jury's verdict marks the end of the 31/2-week trial in which Okafor was convicted of first-degree murder to prevent Zaldivar and his two roommates from taking the stand after their Ocoee home was robbed. Zaldivar was killed by two fatal bullets to the back of his head.

FOREST HILLS, Queens (WABC) -- The victim of a violent attack on a Queens subway train is now speaking out about the incident.
The attack happened November 30th on a Manhattan-bound E train heading to the Forest Hills Station.
"We were making Snapchats, that's what we always do," she said. "We were making Snapchats, she gave me a kiss on the cheek."
What happened next would result in a fractured spine and fear so deep, she didn't want to appear on camera.
"I don't think I'm ever gonna get on a train again," she said.
She is just 20-years-old. After that kiss from her friend, she says a man started shouting homophobic slurs.
"He said, 'do those gay things in front of me one more time and watch what happens'", she said.
She and her friend started to walk away from the man, who was coming closer.
"I felt him right behind me, I felt a punch in my back," she said. "And it all happened so quick it was just a blur," she said.
But the attack was just beginning. "I turned around and he already had his hand on my chest and he threw me back which caused my head to hit the pole and my back hit the ground first, which fractured my spine," the woman said.
Others on the train were trying to protect her, and when the train stopped at Forest Hills, the man got out and escaped.
An ambulance came for the woman, who still wears a brace for her neck because of the fracture.
"Last week I spent the whole week crying and in excruciating pain," she said.

DEPTFORD, N.J. (WPVI) -- A day at the mall turned violent for one group of teenagers in New Jersey after they say they were attacked by two women outside of the Deptford Mall.
Around a kitchen table Monday, three teens- Taylor McFadden, Tatum Bohanon, Alexandria 'Allie' DeRusso - described what they say was several minutes of an unprovoked assault Friday night.
McFadden was at the wheel of her car; her friends were outside smoking cigarettes.
"I noticed the car in my rear-view mirror waiting for my spot. I had the passenger window down, so I said to Allie, 'let them know I am not coming out yet so they don't have to wait,'" said McFadden.
The other car parked a few spots away, but apparently the two women who got out were angry. First, there were words exchanged... then fists.
The girls said their assailants were African American, and most troubling for McFadden, who is bi-racial, is what one of the attackers repeatedly said during the attack.
McFadden recalled the woman saying, "You dumb white bi****** are way too comfortable. You white bi****** are just too comfortable."

Colin Flaherty Commentary News Video "CGS Meeting Hears Sobering Report on Black Student Access"
WASHINGTON – Institutional racism, White supremacy and anti-Black attitudes fuel underrepresentation of Black students on college and university campuses across the United States, with access a battle constantly being waged in legal courts and the court of public opinion, according to an academic who addressed the 58th annual meeting of the Council of Graduate Schools this week.
But there is hope because today’s students appear determined to hold institutions of higher learning to their promises to live up to their stated ideals regarding diversity and access, said Dr. Walter Allen, the Allan Murray Carter Professor of Higher Education and Distinguished Professor of Education, Sociology and African-American Studies at the University of California, Los Angeles.
“Anti-Black sentiments are major drivers in inequality, enrollment and degree completion in higher education,” Allen told the gathering’s 700 attendees from 13 nations and five continents at a plenary in an Omni Shoreham ballroom. The four-day conference, which features a wide range of speakers and sessions, concludes Saturday.
Anti-affirmative action efforts are a factor in “severe” underrepresentation of Black undergraduate and graduate students at many colleges, particularly flagship schools, he said. The problem originates in continued segregation and subjugation of Blacks in broader society, as noted in the federal Kerner Commission report of 1968, and policies and practices in higher education perpetuate the problem, Allen said.
While Black students are 15 percent of the student population at private four-year schools, he noted, they are only 11 percent of student bodies at public four-year schools. Further, Black students constitute 10 percent of total degree enrollment and completion at only three flagship schools in the nation, even though Black people are 15 percent of the population in 14 states and more than 25 percent of the population in six states.
Black student underrepresentation can be better understood by considering critical race theory and legal context, Allen suggested. He cited research data about full-time Black student enrollment and completion at all levels of public higher education over a 40-year period in the 20 states with the largest numbers of Black residents. The numbers – always “stubbornly low,” he said – declined.
So, Black students are underrepresented at flagship schools while public schools that attract large proportions of Black students are underfunded. Those factors, along with laws, policies and customs, “uphold a racial caste system” that disadvantages Black students, Allen said. “Narratives of meritocracy and colorblindness and neutrality continue to be leveraged and used by those in dominant positions to defend their absolute right to exclude.”
Gradualism “is not to be accepted and not to be taken as a convenient excuse for not pushing for dramatic change, because we are capable of dramatic change,” he said. “And it is necessary. Change is possible, and that becomes the beauty of higher education and education writ large.”
“We search far and wide to find students to come into these programs,” she said. “There are all kinds of barriers, both real and imagined, that these students encounter.”
Most are first-generation students who are smart but just don’t know how to navigate advanced-degree programs, she said.
“The students are talented, so it’s often small things – other things in the system – that are roadblocks that we help remove,” she said. “And we have been successful.”
Dr. Renita Miller, associate dean for Access, Diversity and Inclusion at the Graduate School of Princeton University, said Allen’s remarks caused her to think “more broadly about what is happening,” particularly his observations that not all Asian students support the highly publicized discrimination lawsuit against Harvard University.
“When you think about the setbacks to Black enrollment from different policies, you have to change things at a legislative level,” she said. “And there are things you can do in your own communities and universities as teachers and administrators to increase the pipeline. It’s going to take multiple people working in multiple ways, and working together at all levels.”

A black 9-year-old girl in Alabama allegedly took her own life after facing relentless bullying and racism in class, according to reports.
McKenzie Adams’ relatives said she hanged herself Dec. 3 in her home in Linden, about 100 miles west of Montgomery, and was discovered by her grandmother, according to the Tuscaloosa News.
Since the start of the school year, the fourth-grader had been the target of bullying at US Jones Elementary School, where she was teased over her friendship with a white male classmate, according to her family.
Her aunt, Eddwina Harris, said the group of students taunted McKenzie by telling her to commit suicide.
“She was being bullied the entire school year, with words such as ‘kill yourself,’ ‘you think you’re white because you ride with that white boy,’ ‘you ugly,’ ‘black bitch,’ ‘just die,’” Harris told the newspaper.

Jasmine Adams daughter was a fourth grade student at U.S. Jones elementary school in Demopolis.
According to Adams McKenzie told her teachers and her assistant principal she was being bullied
a number of times.
"She told me that this one particular child was writing her nasty notes in class. It was just things you
wouldn't think a 9-year-old should know. And my baby to tell me some of the things they had said to her. I was like where are they learning this from" Adams said.
On December 3, the 9-year-old's grandmother found the child at their home in Linden
after she hung herself. Alex Brasswell says the case is under investigation. Brasswell is the City Schools attorney.
According to Adams race played a factor in the bullying. A white family friend drove 9-year-old McKenzie Adams to school everyday.
"Part of it could have been because she rode to school with a white family. And al ot of it was race, some of the student bullies would say to her why you riding with white people your black, your ugly. You should just die".

The research from the Center for Community Solutions finds that there is no question that race matters when it comes to outcomes — health, economic, and more. It quantifies what has been anecdotally known for decades.
The infant mortality rate is higher for black babies, who are six times more likely to die.
In schools, the study found, black children are disciplined at higher rates, which leads to a higher number of African-Americans in the juvenile justice system — and that disproportionately higher number continues in the adult prison system.
When it comes to health —those living in the highly segregated black neighborhoods and cities on the East Side are at a much higher risk of having asthma, high blood pressure, and diabetes.
Warren said the racial disparity stems from historical racist policies like redlining but continues because of what is happening now.

Among the nine people arrested after a melee early Saturday in which a black disc jockey at a Lynnwood bar was assaulted is a 34-year-old man the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) says is associated with some of the nation’s “oldest and most violent racist skinhead groups.”
Travis David Condor was booked in the Snohomish County Jail at 1:31 a.m., shortly after the fight. He and others arrested are being held for investigation of malicious harassment, assault, malicious mischief and DUI. In Washington, a hate crime comes under the malicious-harassment state statute.
The Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office says racial slurs were used during the attack on the DJ.
He’s also head of American Defense Records, which advertises itself as a “patriotic record label.” Titles of records it carries include “Liberals Can Die,” “American Skinheads … Armed With The Truth!” and “Strength Thru Hate.”
The SPLC said Condor was seen with other supremacists at the August 2017 white nationalists rally in Charlottesville, Virginia.
The DJ said that at one point in the brawl, one of the men told him, “We will find you, and we will kill you.”
The DJ had been playing tunes ranging from rhythm and blues to Top 40, and even Phil Collins, he said, when someone in the group told him to play “hard stuff,” meaning heavy metal.
The DJ said fine, and he showed the man he had cued Iron Maiden and Black Sabbath on his Mac computer holding 9,000 tunes. That wasn’t fast enough for the man, the DJ said.
“What, they couldn’t wait a minute and a half, two minutes? That’s all they had to wait to get to their music?” the DJ said. “For that they beat my ass, and called me a (N-word)?”

NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH) - Brutal video obtained by News 8 shows a violent fight between two girls at Hillhouse High School in New Haven that left one of them with six stitches above her eye. The brawl happened in September in the middle of a crowded classroom with the teacher present.
"To see the students sitting there so complacent and to see some of them calm and moving chairs and desks aside, I thought that it looked like it was par for the course. They've seen this picture before," Fletcher said.
News 8's Mario Boone talked to the mother of one of the girls in the fight. She declined to be named out of fear of more violence against her daughter. The woman complained the teacher in the classroom should've intervened before the first punch was thrown.
"That's an individual preference, although, I have heard of teachers not stepping in for fear of being injured," said Fletcher. "We have to do a better job as teachers, administrators, school resource officers."
A schools spokesman condemned the behavior and released the following statement:
"New Haven Public Schools takes the issue of student and staff safety extremely seriously. We have defined expectations of student conduct within our learning community through the Student Code of Conduct. We also work to support students to make good choices, particularly when in the classroom setting, as all students deserve a safe and healthy environment in which to learn. When situations arise where bad choices are made by individuals we seek to correct that conduct through restorative practices, mediation and support where possible. In certain cases discipline is required and appropriate consistent with the Code of Conduct and school rules.
While the District is not at liberty to discuss individual student matters, we can say that any form of physical violence or aggression is not representative of our expectation of appropriate behavior. In instances where there is an issue of any form of fighting or similar disruption, School Security and Administrative staff as well as other support staff are in place to respond quickly and immediately separate the students, restore order, check on the well-being of all individuals impacted and set about investigating the incident internally and with local and state partners as needed while seeking mediation/restorative practices within the school community and appropriate disciplinary consequences if necessary."

New Haven’s black students are more than four times as likely to be kicked out of class as its white students — a disparity that’s even worse for boys.
Among the 494 suspensions and 1 expulsion, 43.3 percent went to African-American boys, 19.0 percent to African-American girls, 20.1 percent to Hispanic boys and 10.9 percent to Hispanic girls, said Michele Sherban, the district’s research supervisor. Only 3.2 percent went to white boys and 1.9 percent went to white girls, she added.
Board member Tamiko Jackson-McArthur said the starting point was painfully obvious to her, as the mother of two black children. “We need to start looking into how black males are viewed from pre-kindergarten,” she said. “I have a girl and I have a boy, and I see the difference. I had to speak to the teachers from day one, because my son was getting treated differently for the same things that I would see with my daughter or someone who wasn’t a black male. This is happening from the gate, and it continues to spiral out of control — until you have a middle-school male who is viewed as a threat, who is viewed as unable to achieve, as someone who is not going to be anything.
Superintendent Birks said that the district needs to learn more from those schools. “Of course, the goal is to use more restorative practices at large, as a system, not to suspend for every infraction. We need to ensure that we are providing students with the social-emotional supports they need,” she said. “We are going to go to schools, like Martinez and others, to ask them to share the practices that they’re using with all of us, so we can use those pockets to repeat the excellence they’re demonstrating.”

EVERGREEN, Colo. -- The wife of an Evergreen man who was killed over an Xbox in Aurora is speaking out.
“He died protecting me,” Miranda Clymer said.
Clymer calls her late husband, Jacob, her hero. She said that in the frantic moments of the robbery, he drew gunfire away from her.
“I got the gun pulled on me because they wanted to rob us for our Xbox One,” Clymer said.
The Clymers had posted an ad for their Xbox on Facebook. They agreed to meet the prospective buyer, a teenager, on Halloween morning near Montview Boulevard and Billings Street in Aurora.
When Miranda got out of the car, they started talking about the price.
"Then he said give it to us and pointed the gun at me and I threw my hands up," Clymer said.
She said Jacob then pulled out his own gun.
“He drew the attention away from me and I really think he knew what exactly that entitled to come to,” Clymer said.
Seconds later, gunfire filled the air. Miranda said the teen shot her husband and took off. She rushed to Jacob’s side.
“I found him bleeding ... bleeding out,” Clymer said.

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – A man selling shoes online was beaten and robbed in Brooklyn and now police are searching for three suspects who allegedly carried out the brutal attack.
Authorities tell CBS2’s Clark Fouraker that the victim was using a popular app, ”Let Go,” which allows people to list and buy items from other users.
When a fight broke out between the seller and the three men, one of the suspects pulled out a hammer and struck the victim. The men then stole the sneakers and about $125 in cash.

The mother of a 16-year-old shot dead during a Columbus Police SWAT sting said Saturday night that she had not heard from anyone with CPD in more than 24 hours since her son's death.
Julius Ervin Tate, Jr., 16, was pronounced dead at Grant Medical Center in the early evening Friday, after he was shot on Mount Vernon Avenue. A police news release late Friday said Tate was caught up in an undercover tactic, wherein the SWAT team was setting up meetings online with people wanting to buy or sell goods. Police say when Tate showed up to the meeting, he pulled a gun on the undercover officer — and a "cover" officer nearby fired on him and struck Tate.
"No one ever came to me, Julius' mother, nor his father... and stated anything that went on," Malone said. "How can the police have a narrative of what happened, and not call me about it?"
Malone did not address whether it was likely that her son might have been involved in an armed robbery, but told vigil attendees that she doubted whether the gun recovered at the scene was her son's — and believes it may have been planted or handed over by someone else.
A Columbus Police spokesperson said Saturday evening that the investigation is in early stages. The officers involved in the sting have been placed on administrative leave; it was the second such shooting involving an undercover "buy/sell" operation in as many nights, after a similar situation in Southeast Columbus resulted in another police shooting that put a suspect in the hospital in critical condition.

Detectives say he has hit at least three since October. In the most recent robbery, the suspect described as a black male 40's to 50's years old with a possible shaved head, entered the Baskin-Robbins with a large knife at about 4:30 pm.
"As soon as I get to the counter, he grabs me by the apron and then holds his knife to my stomach and he says, 'Open the register, give me all the money in it' and I looked down and I'm like 'whoa' cause it's just like a huge knife at my stomach and I'm just like oh my god, we're being robbed," said Leslie who asked us not to share her last name for her safety.

The 47-year-old lawyer, who ran on ending “mass incarceration” and cutting off relations between Boston and the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency, won the Democratic primary for district attorney of Suffolk County in a rout, leading her closest rival by 16 points. If Rollins defeats her independent opponent in a general election that has no GOP candidate, the county's nearly 800,000 residents will have a chief prosecutor intent on remaking the criminal justice system. No more cash bail. No more civil asset forfeiture. No more racial disparity in who does and doesn't go to jail.
"I believe there are certain things we're just going to reject,” Rollins said in an interview before the primary. “I think there are certain charges that I don't want to prosecute any longer. Those are overwhelmingly the charges that fall on the mentally ill and those with substance abuse disorder."
Rollins, who spent just $230,000 on her campaign, is the latest in a string of reform-minded candidates who will be district attorneys in deep-blue cities — places that, for years, elected Democrats who ran on “law and order” platforms. The effort to elect them, which began before the 2016 election but has accelerated, has succeeded in Chicago, Philadelphia and St. Louis and failed in some other blue cities. But it's created a blueprint for electing reformist prosecutors and for shaping their agendas.
The first victory in the campaign came in early 2016, when George Soros plunked $300,000 into a PAC created to elect Kim Foxx as the state's attorney of Cook County, Ill. Foxx won the Democratic primary, tantamount to election in the deep-blue county, proving that the investments in races that sometimes attracted little money or attention could work.
In 2017, a larger coalition came together behind Larry Krasner, a defense attorney running in Philadelphia after suing the city's police force 75 times. He won the Democratic primary, then the general election, despite being opposed by the city's police union and the Philadelphia Inquirer.
"When you talk to progressive voters, terms like 'mass incarceration' and 'the school-to-prison pipeline' — those are terms we all understand,” said Noah Phillips, the attorney who lost in Sacramento. “They need to resonate with moderate voters, too. They will once we do the work and they understand."
"Soros has come and leveled the playing field, and so has Real Justice,” Price said. “You don’t think it’s fair, huh? You thought it was going to be great, to have an unfair advantage?"
But at the doors, it was clear that some voters who considered themselves liberal Democrats were unready to back a reformist district attorney. Price spent close to 20 minutes with one voter who had complained to the city about a nearby house that was being squatted in by drug dealers; Price could not quite convince her that focusing on treatment instead of incarceration would keep her neighborhood safe.
"We are one of the most progressive counties in the country, and we have one of the most regressive justice systems,” Price said. “Soros isn’t the real story. The real story is the police money that came in from across the state to stop us. The real story is who owns our criminal justice system. Mr. Soros doesn’t own the system, they do."
By the end of summer, the movement seemed to regain its footing. In Missouri's August primary, Ferguson City Councilman Wesley Bell ousted St. Louis County's longtime prosecutor in a race colored by the aftermath of Michael Brown's killing by a police officer. And in the run-up to Sept. 4, the campaign for Rollins in Boston seemed to be coming together. She had a five-way primary, a compelling story and eventually the endorsement of the Boston Globe.
