|An 8 year old boy's life is lost to bullying. The boy commits suicide. This nonsense has to stop.|
The nation is talking about the tragic death of an 8 year old boy. The poor child committed suicide after he was assaulted in a restroom just a few days before he took his life.
This happened in January and the family is calling upon the feds to investigate the boy's death.
This happened in Cincinnati and the Hamilton County sheriff is looking into this.
Gabriel Tye knocked unconscious by students at Carson Elementary School in late January.
The child was described in a police report by Det. Eric Karaguleff as being attacked for nearly five minutes before the school's vice principal Jeff McKenzie breaks it up.
The family is saying that school failed to inform them about the boy's assault. The school said that Gabriel fainted. The allegations of the boy having stomach flu was proven to be false.
His mother, Cornelia Reynolds was angry about this. Why didn't Cincinnati Public Schools notify her of this?
The public school released a statement.
"While we are concerned about the length of time that Gabriel lay motionless and the lack of adult supervision at the scene, when school administrators became aware of the situation, they immediately followed protocol by call the school nurse to evaluate Gabriel. The school nurse checked Gabriel's vital signs, which were normal. She also contacted Gabriel's mother and asked for her to pick him up and take him to the hospital to be checked out."
"Though the connection between this incident at school and Gabriel's suicide are not clear, the district shared this video with police investigators at the time of the incident. Their investigation has concluded and no charges have been filed. The video also has been shared with Gabriel's family's attorney. The video will be made available after steps have been taken to ensure the privacy of any student depicted."
"We will continue working to determine all the facts surround that incident."
Gabriel's attorney, Jennifer Branch said that the school is trying to blame the victim and scrub any accountability.
"It's unfortunate that CPS chose to blame Gabriel's mother for not taking him to the hospital after he was injured at school.. No one from CPS told Gabriel's mother that she needed to take him to the hospital. The nurse's notes verify this. In fact, if his mother had been told that Gabriel was assaulted and was unconscious for over seven minutes on the bathroom floor, she would have taken him to the hospital and not let him return to Carson. It's helpful that CPS did not deny that Carson officials withheld this vital information from Gabriel's mother."
"As to whether Gabriel was assaulted, we trust the opinion of a Cincinnati Police Detective."
Poor child's bright future is cut short by a bunch of ignorant children. The parents of these ignorant children should be sued for this poor boy's death.
I can't stand bullies. I was a victim of bullying when I was a child.
Black America's worst enemy is ourselves. We can hate Donald J. Trump and white extremism. But when it comes to our own, sometimes, we have to look with both eyes open.
