Georgian First Grader Beaten and Sexually Assaulted by Male Classmates…School Says Boys Just “Rough Housing”
Valdosta - Three first grade boys kept a female classmate outside after recess by hiding in the woods, pushing her face first into the ground. The victim, whose name is being withheld, has suffered scarring to the right side of her face from broken tree branches and rocks that she was allegedly assaulted with both physically and sexually.
The victim was able to escape the male classmates after fifteen minutes of torture, running into a fifth grade classroom and alerting a teacher of what had happened. The principle of the elementary school said he had a “man to man” talk with the boys and their parents, giving them two days of suspension. He neglected calling the local authorities claiming “it did not seem like a police matter, just simple rough housing gone a little too far”.
The parents of the victim are looking to press charges on the boys for sexual and physical assault, as well as a possible law suit against the school district. District superintendent was not available for comment.
This is called rape culture you guys. The girl was 7 years old and they called it “rough housing” between boys.
Please boost this post! People NEED to hear about this.
two day suspension
what the fucking fuck
A “man to man” talk?? Are you fucking kidding me?! There are no “men” here. These are first grade BOYS who have clearly learned somewhere that this is acceptable behavior. Giving them a slap-on-the-wrist punishment of a “stern” talking to a two day suspension is just reinforcing that behavior. It still baffles me that people like the principle of this elementary still exist and allow this behavior to be tolerated. ESPECIALLY in an environment where the kids are so impressionable. I am both extremely angry and deeply saddened by this situation.
