This happened at Lanier High School in Georgia… a mother got a call from the school in the middle of the day to pick up her son who is hearing impaired. What the school failed to mention is what happened to her son there and why she smelled burned flesh when she got there to take him home. Her son was in chemistry when two boys came up behind him with red-hot tongs and grabbed his arm, branding him, while laughing and shouting: “We branded you like that fat pig that you are.” These two boys are bullies and evidently get away with whatever they want at the school. A teacher saw all of this happen and rather than marching the boys to the principal’s office where they should have been immediately expelled, he sent the victim home saying ‘boys will be boys’. I don’t know about you, but as a parent, I would have a really hard time not getting violent over this one and there would definitely be attorneys involved immediately.
From Mad World News:
A Georgia mother received a call in the middle of the day, while her child was in class. It was school administrators casually telling her she needed to come pick her student up early without providing further detail. However, when she arrived, she could smell the burnt flesh and was instantly horrified by what had happened.
Brooke Graves is demanding answers and getting nothing but ridiculous excuses, after her son is now severely scared. The school doesn’t think it’s a big deal. The teen at Lanier High School in Sugar Hill was intentionally branded on his arm, much like an animal, leaving burnt and scarred skin. When administrators were asked what was going to be done about it, Graves was slapped with a massive insult to her son’s injury.
The hearing-impaired teen is often picked on in class by a set of bullies who are apparently allowed to do whatever they want at the public school, including burning another child in the presence of a teacher. According to WXIA, Graves’ boy was sitting alone in chemistry when a pair of poorly raised future criminals came up to him with metal tongs one had just heated up and held it on her son’s arm. Admiring their abusive “work” the bully laughed and shouted, “We branded you like that fat pig that you are,” the victim’s mother told the news station.
This would be a crime out in the real world, but since it was at school, the adults in charge want it overlooked. Too freaking bad. These monsters are going to be held accountable for what amounts to torture and assault. The accused student may have to testify about what happened. And the school district said they are referring the case to the Gwinnett County Sheriff’s Office. You can bet they are doing that because they sense a lawsuit coming on. The teacher should be fired and the staff that did not act on this should also be let go. The student who did the deed needs to be prosecuted and should not get away with this. There is no doubt in my mind that the so-called ‘accused student’ is guilty here. The school district told WXIA-TV that they will have a disciplinary hearing for the student, who is currently not in school, on March 9. School officials said that while they cannot comment on specific cases, it is typical that the student would be out of school until that hearing. I would bulldog this one if I were that mother and make them rue the day they did not expel that monster.
