(Ezekiel Loseke, Headline USA) A gang of black elementary students attacked white children while forcing them to profess that “black lives matter” in an Ohio school, according to a video of the event, but the NAACP says they should not be charged.
The 17-minute video shows the black gang interacting with three white students.
One white student was escorted to a place by a swing set, pushed to the ground, and forced to speak.
Another white student was carried over by the black gang and dropped to the ground.
A third white student was pushed to the ground in the same spot.
All three were forced to profess, “Black Lives Matter.”
One student was punched in the head, and more students report being carried over to the same spot, according to Dayton 24/7 Now.
The principal of the school, Kenwood Elementary, told police that white students who refused to announce “black lives matter,” were “chased down and escorted, dragged or carried” to the area near the swings, according to the New York Post.
Police say that at least one of the white children were punched in the head.
Allison Elliot, Springfield’s female Police Chief, described the event at a press conference before the video was released.
“Multiple students were assaulted on the playground,” she said, leaving out the political and racial nature of the assaults.
“We are actively pursuing charges for the identified assaults,” she said.
Krystal Harr, reported that her 12-year-old sixth grader was victimized by the black gang.
“Watch your babies! This is getting unsafe!” she wrote on Facebook.
Denise Williams, president of the local NAACP, said the incident was blown out of proportion according to Dayton 24/7 Now.
“This is a teachable moment,” she said. “We need to really educate the school, and the parents.”
Williams said she does not believe charges should be brought, but rather that parents should have an open discussion.
“I’m calling on all parents,” she said. “Let’s talk instead of talking about each other.”
