That's what I was thinking as well.  If a sixteen year old Black child had did that to a 12 year old[really, any age] White child, that Black student would have been expelled from school and The School would have had criminal charges filed against that Black student and been adamant about following every step of the prosecution of that child through. 

 

I'm also wondering what school system has 12 year old and 16 year old in the same school or in such proximity to each other in school in the first place.  And, maybe it's me, or the circumstances of the incident, but I'm not seeing other 16 year old Black kids standing back doing nothing while a 16 year old White kid is brutalizing a 12 year old Black kid at a school.  So, I don't know, just thought I would post it, as I'm trying to spread as much information as I can about the systematic and the resurgence of Black people being brutalized, harassed, and murdered in this country with by whites with impunity, as I believe it is only the tip of the iceberg of what's to come at this rate.

Shannon Grant only said 'hello' before a 17-year-old student struck the 12-year-old with a lunch plate and began beating him. The attack left Shannon with brutal cuts on his head and face that required 50 stitches. His mother wants answers from the school.

I'm gonna get hurt again,"  Grant said.

Grant, 12, is a student at  the Pressley Ridge school on the North Side, a school for children with  emotional and behavioral challenges. 

Grant was rushed to  Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC after a 16-year-old boy became  violent. Grant has a slash mark from the middle of his cheek to his neck

"My child has over 50  stitches in his face right now, could possibly live with that scar for the rest  of his life, and he plays football and he's not even allowed to play the sport  that he enjoys the most," said Grant's mother, Sheheda Manley.

Grant said he was throwing  his food away after eating lunch when he saw the other student and said hello.  He said the teen cursed and hit him in the face with a plastic plate before  beginning to beat him.

"I said, 'What's up? Hi,'  to the boy, and he said, 'Don't (expletive) talk to me,' and he picked up the  plate and tried to hit me with it," Grant said. "I started running, and I fell,  and he hopped up on me and stated punching me in my face, and I kept on  bleeding."

The teen was charged with  aggravated assault, and was taken to a juvenile detention center.  Manley  said she is now looking for answers and a way to help her son feel safe in  school.

"For my child to be  terrified to go back to school, it hurts me," Manley said.

 

Fourteen students and  seven staff members were in the school cafeteria at the time of Wednesday's  incident, according to Kelley Reed, a corporate spokeswoman for Pressley Ridge.  She also sent the following statement by email:

 

 

"Pressley Ridge's primary  focus is to help children who face serious emotional and behavioral challenges.  We are dedicated to protecting the safety, health and well-being of our children  and families and the community. We, at Pressley Ridge, take situations of this  nature very seriously and are deeply concerned for the welfare of all of our  students at all times. Pressley Ridge is working closely with the family and  Pittsburgh City Police to investigate the incident fully and determine the  facts. If there are any further questions regarding this incident, individuals  should contact the Pittsburgh City Police Department."

 

"I don't understand why or how this took place when there was a million staff  around, and my child was beat almost to death for nothing," Manley said. "School  is supposed to be his safe haven when he's not at home, and I feel they didn't  do their job today."

  I agree. The school SHOULD be SUED and I would also SUE the principal individually...for his lack of judgment and obvious racism.  But!

First of all I want to express my deepest and sincere sympathyto the mother of Shannon Grant, myself as an Ethnic Scilian/Greek background have also been denigrated, hated by the "White Anglo-Saxon and Northern European Immigrants" that are responsible for the Genocide of American Indian and other Indegeneous People of America, and of course the Symbol of Slavery that they are repsonsible will never be eradicated, I am ashamed to call myself a White Person, because of the systemtic and underhanded Racism that exists today in America and will never go away.  I also see that the Aftrican American Community is still enslaved, through systematic and intentional Addiction of African American Community by the White Slave Masters that Run America, White America will NEVER accept people of Color as one of their own, and the Racism today will not go away, the only solution is through strong family strurctures in the African American Community, is through education, that the African American Commnity can raise themselves out of their current circumstances and we need people of Conscience in the White Community to come out and talk about the continued Hatred and Injustice that is perpeterated on a daily basis against people of Color, and I too consider myself a person of Color, because I too have been subjected to Racism and Dsicrimiantion.  Wish for a Speedy Recovery for Shannon and you should go after the School and parents of this kid with all legal might you can muster.

You are preaching to the choir, Piruzzi.  With racism being so tightly woven into the fabric of American politics, we know that racism is not going away anytime soon.  But, voices, even lone voices will NEVER cease crying in the wilderness on this issue in America, a democratic country, who claims belief in "Freedom", "Equality" and "Justice".  America has allowed its racists to paint it into a corner, where all other nations now know that America does not have a ground to stand on to tell other nations what to do, or speak of their "atrocities" 'against their own people' or that their system is unjust or unfair, etc., etc.  Other nations around the world have grown and are growing in power and wealth and they have and are growing weary of America's condemnation of their forms of government and the wrongs they are accused of committing or allowing to happen in their countries, while America only gives 'lip service' to the racism in America, and to the countless murders, brutalizations, harassment, and discrimination that is occurring right here in America.  How can America continue to have the respect of other nations while trying to exact a double-standard[in only its own favor] onto the rest of the world?  They say if you live by the sword, you will die by the sword; America was built on Racism, and it will be Racism that will take America down if America continues on this lower-based path of Racism and hatred. 

Hi Sunnubian:

 

The Elite and Wealthy Americans, who give us the "LOOK" when we drive through their neigborhoods, as if saying "your KINDS....should not be traveling in our neighborhoods", they think that, by hiding behind their fences and their security guards, they are safe, and when their kids get into drugs and alcohol, they blame the "Black Men" but they are ones who allow the drugs to come into the country and are also repsonsible for proliferation of the kind of Music that denigrates and humiliates African Women, but we should shame on those Musicians who Proliferate Filth, and Rape and Demonic Sacrifices as a way of life for our young people, the intention is very clear, keep them occupied with these things so that, they don't think about improvinf themselves through education, and destroy the church so that nobody will any longer have any moral values and we all become followers of Satan!
