Girls Gone Wild Part II: Girl Caught on Camera

with one comment

A 13 year old middle school student reported this week that she was beaten up and threatened after she made an anti-immigration sign for a social studies project.  This is the KETKNBC version of events:

“The incident allegedly happened on Friday. Parents of 13 year old Melanie Bowers who have now hired an attorney and do not want to go on camera say their daughter was assigned to make a protest sign dealing with both a past and current issue.

Melanie chose illegal immigration and made a sign that read,”If you love your nation, stop illegal immigration.” A project school officials say was not a good idea.

“I don’t believe that we ought to have students producing protest posters,” said Hayes.

Melanie says the sign was ripped out of her hand, she was hit in the jaw, her head was slammed into a brick wall and scraped down on the side of the wall. She told her parents the group of students also tried to take her into a restroom and threatened to rape and kill her.

“We have two cameras that are in that basic area…and there’s a blind spot…and it happened just in that blind spot,” said Hayes.

Melanie says she went to the school’s office to call her parents. She says the assistant principal did not allow her because he didn’t see anything wrong with her. School officials admit the situation was not handled properly.

“The assistant principal…thinking that the young lady just wanted to be not counted tardy in the class…didn’t handle it as he should have. He should have taken it seriously…he should have taken the young lady to the nurse, which is our procedure,” said Hayes.

Now Melanie’s parents say they’re attorney is looking into the school’s actions. They hope the school will handle future incidents better than how they handled their daughters.”

Surveillance cameras showed the girl making scratches on herself and when confronted with the evidence Melanie fessed up to the whole thing being a hoax.  However, somehow I missed this story and didn’t have a chance to add my outrage to the incident.

I am sickened by the school’s attitude.  If the girl had been attacked over a sign saying something like “Impeach Bush” they would have come to her rescue, but because the girl was conservative they totally ignored the beating and sent her back to class.  The only reason the school even found out about the hoax is because they were determined to prove her wrong for attacking their liberal principals.  We must do something to create equal representation for conservatives among school boards and teachers to make sure this type of thing doesn’t happen again.  Even though the girl’s story was proven to be bogus I hope those parents do sue and show the school board that they need to treat all students equally…not just the liberal ones.

  1. This sounds like a clear case of everyone involved being completely nuts. Of course, the also sound live average citizens. It doesn’t make one optimistic.
