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.
This genuinely makes me sick. There is no excuse for the actions of children and I hope no one brings psychology into the matter. Schools do a shit job protecting their student body. The fact that no one realized these kids were gone is also alarming because aren’t teachers supposed to keep track of students? Especially the young ones? Rape culture is no joke and I hope the parents of this little girl sue as many people as possible. This is a wake up call, schools are supposed to be a safe place. Principles as well as the super intendants of any school district are OBLIGATED to protect the kids attending these schools. Not only from adults but from children who act out in adult ways. No one on this earth is entitled to tell that girl and her parents that it “wasn’t that serious”. Her parents ought to smack the ignorance out of that principle. - end rant
