A 9-year-old Florida girl was videoed being brutally beaten by two boys (1 of the boys is a 14 year old) on a school bus, her parents plan to pursue criminal charges against her attackers, according to reports.
Video of the sickening assault shows two boys repeatedly punching the 9-year-old at Coconut Palm Academy in Homestead as she tries to defend herself from them.
The video is almost 30 seconds long and was recorded by a classmate.
The victim’s mother told the news outlet that she will demand criminal charges against her daughter’s attackers.
The school administrators are overwhelmed by continuous violence in and around the school, their solution was to advise her to enroll her three children in another school.
The devastated mother added that her two older children have also been bullied during their short time at the school. Counselors and administrators at the school have done nothing to stop the bullying.
The girl’s father posted on social media to express his anger and promised to protest in front of the school.
“I want to set up a rally and confront the school head-on,” he wrote on Facebook. “The lack of security is unreal, and the lack of security on the bus is ridiculous … The bullying must stop!!!”
The offenders have been arrested, said Miami-Dade Schools Police.
“The safety and wellbeing of our students are of the utmost importance,” it read. “This school district goes to great lengths to promote the values of restraint and respect as well as using social media responsibly. We ask that parents reinforce these principles at home.”
Great parenting. 😣
The parents are using social media well as the school did nothing!!
