A police probe is underway after a group of young students from Springfield, Ohio were reportedly assaulted and threatened by their peers.
An officer with the Springfield Police Department made contact with Kenwood Elementary School Principal Evan Hunsaker who confirmed that an incident had taken place on the playground during recess last week. The allegation claims that a group of black students rounded up several white students and demanded that they say “Black Lives Matter” against their will as the black students filmed, according to WKEF.
Hunsaker further claimed that if any of the white students attempted to escape the situation, they were chased down by the suspects. One student was reportedly punched in the head.
The report indicates there were five total victims and four assailants.
In a statement to WKEF in Dayton, district officials say they were aware of the allegations and are “committed to providing our students with a safe learning environment, where they look forward to attending every day.” Authorities are gathering evidence, and say the suspects could face assault and menacing charges.
“This incident is still under investigation and detectives continue to conduct interviews in the case,” said police on Thursday. “The Division is working in conjunction with the Clark County Prosecutor’s office to determine potential next steps in this matter.”
“I don’t understand how it got as far as it did because the teachers should’ve been paying closer attention,” said Krystal Harr, a mother of one of the students she said was allegedly “thrown to the ground” during the incident.
Twitter users were quick to react to the news:
…but they probably won’t do a damn thing about it.

This is a hate crime.

If the situation was reversed, there would be people screaming about it being a hate crime.

The fruits of CRT, teachers, adults and culture who teach children to demand superior recognition because of their race and promote resentment on whites. This has nothing to do with equality. Gee wonder where they got the idea that assault for noncompliance was justified hmm?

And people wonder why there is gun violence, why there are school shootings… Educators have made bullying worse with their woke nonsense.

Imagine that. The indoctrination having the desired result. It will only worsen

The fact that these were elementary school kids doing this to other kids the same age is just downright disgusting
