A mentally challenged 15-year-old New York girl endured a brutal gang rape as she was trapped beneath her desk by two boys with her teacher only feet away, alleges a lawsuit filed Friday. The special needs student, identified only by the initials K.J., was allegedly sexually assaulted for 10 minutes as another student ´hit her on the head whenever she tried to escape,´ during a science class at Martin De Porres Academy in Elmont, N.Y. The girl´s mother, who filed the suit, alleged that the teacher ignored the assault even as one student danced on the desk while another
Comments: The original report of this horrendous incident is linked at the site--I suggest reading that too.
Teacher has been fired, but no charges brought against students, or the teacher.
On the home page of the school´s website: "Dear Friends,
You may be aware, a newspaper has recently reported on an alleged incident from May 2012 at a high school run by the Martin De Porres School known formerly as the Martin de Porres Academy for Career Development. This school, which was consolidated with the Martin De Porres High School (Rosedale) moved to the Rockaways in September 2012. We serve special needs teenagers who have serious emotional, psychological, social and behavioral problems, and whose needs have not been met within New York City Department of Education’s special education programs.
We hold our teachers—indeed all our staff—to a high standard. Therefore, as soon as we learned about the allegations, we conducted an internal investigation. As a result of our investigation, the teacher was fired. We also cooperated fully with detectives from Nassau County who advised us that no charges would be filed against the alleged assailants.
Our Martin De Porres community is a family. We have seen your children through some difficult times, and we have watched with pride as they evolve into responsible adults. I want to assure you that their safety and well-being is our top priority.
"Her alleged attackers all had known ´violent propensities´ and are residents of Casa De La Salle, a home for juvenile delinquents."
Sounds to me that this was NOT a normal high school , but some alternative school at best, and certainly a detention center for known miscreants. These jobs do not attract good "teachers", but any warm body off the street desperate for a job, probably with no educational training whatsoever.
The future of government run health care can be gleaned from stories like these regarding our government run schools. I fear when all is said and done, we´ll make the UK´s NHS look almost respectable. And to those who say it won´t happen here, I dare you to take a look at the schools, the future is already here.
Charge both boys with rape as adults. Charge the girl who helped the boys as well. Charge the teacher as an accomplice. Charge the school administration who did nothing. This is way more than just a firing offense.
No #17. Given the propensity for women to lie about this subject, too many innocent men would pay a dreadful price. Now if they have incontrovertable proof such as this crime, I say definitely. And charge all the enablers too.
I am wondering if the teacher had objected to having been put into a classroom with one vulnerable girl and a pack of male wild animals? I wonder if the "let´s work things out" nonsense was from the teacher or the administration? If the school accepted criminals as students just to make a few bucks on attendance? If the teacher was a man or a woman? If the teacher was a woman, if she was afraid for her life if she picked up a phone or ran for the door during the attack on the girl? If the principal told him/her to say nothing because the girl had a low IQ and no one would believe her?
Being a case involving minors, teachers unions and the government, this will doubtless be resolved long after it is still newsworthy.
So many unanswered questions, even in a UK paper article.
Liberals are uninterested in the actual war on women. Five minutes watching the misogyny their friends in the entertainment business profit from and it´s obvious. Heck, they´re even watching their own daughters bring offered up for mass consumption now. They´re just enlightened that way. We´re the mouth breathers dontchaknow.
Your government will not protect you or your children. They will not enforce justice when you are wronged. An appeal to government authority is nothing more than an appeal to a self-interested king who couldn´t run a bake sale.
The Progressives have created social Darwinism through the politicization of the criminal justice system. Inefficacy has bread the potential for anarchy anywhere more than 10 feet from a patrol car or armed law enforcement officer.
You need to be strong. Don´t waste your time with the criminal justice system. It no longer has any interest in protecting you or I from these vermin. You must protect yourself and your family, while remaining free from the reach of the justice system just looking for a social justice target.
The gangs of early New York and the mafia of 20th century New York arose from the need to protect their citizens from corrupt government force. They fell to their own internal, moral corruption or co-option. But they started from a need for safety and security where none could be found in government.
Great point #29. Again, actual war on women uninteresting if it´s a consequence of liberal policies. And nobody can argue that our worst schools, places where no sane parent would ever send their children daily, aren´t a product of decades of liberal education and social policies.
Chillen f felonious-type behavior avoid being labelled criminals by getting labelled attention-deficit disorder in need of greater assistane, even if their folks have been bragging about their brains. Also obamacare has ordered funding of support for female reproductive organs, making them a taxpayerpfunded resource like police and parks and fire services. These resources are available to all because everyone has to pay for them.
Shouldn´t a teacher in a school for mentally challenged students have better trainging and power over the students ? What jerk put that girl in a class room full of boys ? There has to be a lot of proof for them to outright fire the teacher. In the second article it says "teachers" and the photo of the desks are different.
Fortunately, the black girl´s attackers were black. Can you imagine the scandal if it had been white boys raping a black girl? Oh, that´s right, all it takes is a lie to get that fire fanned up to an inferno- Duke University lacrosse team- remember? But, since it is black-on-black crime- Oh, well, Media gives it a pass- nothing to see here, move along.
Racism is dead in America- we elected a black President for crying out loud! Right?
Barack Obama is facing poll numbers that are now in the same territory as President George W. Bush´s following Hurricane Katrina. The Quinnipiac University Polling Institute released numbers on Tuesday showing that just 38 percent of registered voters approve of the job Obama is doing as president, with a whopping 56 percent saying they disapprove. The president has lost his landslide electoral edge among young voters, too, with a negative 41–49 percent rating among 18- to 29-year-old voters. His once formidable support among Hispanics has also evaporated: They now support him by an historically small 50–43 percent margin.
Secretary of State John Kerry boasted in a congressional hearing on Tuesday that a recent nuclear deal with the Islamic Republic of Iran will make America ´more secure than the day before we entered this agreement.´ [Snip] But ´this agreement halts the progress of Iran´s nuclear program--Halts the program!´ he boasted. ´Iran´s nuclear program will not move forward. Under this agreement, Iran will have to neutralize--end!--its entire supply of 20 percent-enriched uranium, which you know is a short step away from weapons-grade uranium.´ ´Iran will forfeit all--not part--all of that 20 percent [enriched material], that 200-kilogram stockpile. Gone!´
More than 100 members of the BBC have been deployed to South Africa to cover Nelson Mandela’s death and memorial service. Staff were flown out to cover the story in the week the corporation received more than 1,000 complaints from viewers about local news and the storms being ignored to cover his death. (Snip) Far fewer staff were dedicated to the coverage on other channels, with nine people including a presenter, correspondents and camera operator from ITV sent out to South Africa. A spokeswoman for the BBC said: “Over a ten-day period we expect to have deployed around 120 journalists, technicians and support
President Obama shook hands with Cuban President Raul Castro today, an unprecedented gesture of friendship which occurred, fittingly, at the memorial service for Nelson Mandela. [Snip] Obama greeted a long line of world leaders and heads of state attending the memorial service in Johannesburg after flying to South Africa with a U.S. delegation which included former presidents Bill Clinton, George W Bush and Jimmy Carter along with their families. Obama also shook hands with Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff, who has clashed with the U.S. President over alleged National Security Agency spying. He was later spotted in the VIP stands posing
Barack Obama today paid an emotional tribute to Nelson Mandela, calling the South African leader a ´giant of history´ as he spoke at a memorial service in a stadium where around a third of the seats were mysteriously left empty. The U.S. President, who moments earlier had shaken hands with Cuba´s Raul Castro in a historic moment of reconciliation, receivied a rapturous reception for his eulogy at the service in Johannesburg´s FNB Stadium, which started an hour late in the pouring rain. Cyril Ramaphosa, the deputy president of the ruling ANC party who opened the proceedings, said: ´In our tradition,
To those of you who may be alarmed by the notion that the US security services, helped by their obliging colleagues at GCHQ, might have access to all your internet activity--private emails included--Sir Malcolm Rifkind offers soothing reassurance. [Snip] Responding to the fact that a very impressive group of US web companies and internet providers has sent a letter to President Obama expressing concern at this wholesale hoovering up of the internet activityof ordinary citizens, Sir Malcolm observes that the signatories "have not concluded that what is happening…is necessarily unlawful." No, indeed they haven´t--because that is precisely the question at
As we grieve the loss of Madiba let us console ourselves with the happy thought that still living among us is an African-born hero whose saintliness, courage and high principle remain an example to us all. I refer, of course, to Peter Hain MP. Yesterday in Parliament, Hain let MPs into the little-known secret of his personal friendship with Mandela, which he had only previously disclosed in the dozen or so books he had written on the subject (including Mandela and Me; Mandela, My Part In His Victory; Mandela: He Owed Me Everything; Botha: My Part In His Downfall; Apartheid--I
On his way to the podium at the memorial ceremony for former South African president Nelson Mandela, President Obama walked down the line of dignitaries, greeting other leaders there to pay their respects. Among the hands shaken: that of Cuban leader Raul Castro. Obama neither made a special effort to shake Castro’s hand nor to avoid him. A snub might have been awkward: In his speech, Obama praised Mandela’s “greatest gift” as “his recognition that we are all bound together in ways that can be invisible to the eye; that there is a oneness to humanity; that we achieve ourselves by
The Obama State Department has finally released a second round of photos revealing the harrowing devastation wrought by a terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi on Sept. 11, 2012. The new photographs depict rampant damage to the consulate. They show charred walls, smoldering fires, Arabic graffiti defacing exterior walls, and scattered debris throughout. The extent of the damage would lead any reasonably serious person to conclude that this was a cold, calculated attack, carefully coordinated to mark the 11th anniversary of Sept. 11, 2001. Unfortunately for the American people, the Obama-Clinton-Rice cabal that led to the Benghazi cover-up was
A black fashion student says he was brutally attacked by a gang of Hasidic men who shouted anti-gay slurs at him while he was walking through Williamsburg after a night of partying, the Daily News has learned. Taj Patterson, 22, was headed home to Fort Greene around 4:30 a.m. on Dec. 1 when he says more than a dozen ultra-Orthodox Jewish men began assaulting him on Flushing Ave. and yelling, “Stay down, f----t!”
A “presidential selfie” featuring President Barack Obama, British Prime Minister David Cameron, and Denmark’s Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt at Nelson Mandela’s memorial service began making the rounds this morning, but it’s the person not included in the frame who caught everyone’s attention: As anyone with two eyes and a Twitter account has noticed, Michelle Obama does not appear amused. Of course, though a picture says a thousand words, not all of those words are necessarily true. FLOTUS might not have even known the photo was taking place. Or she could disapprove of funeral selfies. Either way.
Just how much do many Hollywood liberals hate conservatives? In an interview with Playboy, Ben Affleck said, "When I watch a guy [on film] I know is a big Republican, part of me thinks, I probably wouldn’t like this person if I met him": PLAYBOY: You developed a political profile campaigning for presidential candidates Al Gore, John Kerry and Barack Obama. How did that come about? AFFLECK: I grew up in a house with a mother who was a teacher and a Freedom Rider—very left-wing Democrats living in a heterogeneous working-class neighborhood. I picked up a lot of those values there, and I
MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry opened her program over the weekend with a commentary about the Affordable Care Act’s colloquial moniker: “Obamacare.” She said that the word was originally created as a “derogatory term,” designed by white men as a way to delegitimize President Barack Obama and his achievement. However, she said that the term will soon be synonymous with all of Obama’s accomplishments and she urged her audience to use the term with pride. “I want to talk today about a controversial word. It’s a word that has been with us for years, and like it or not, it’s indelibly
Barack Obama has arrived in South Africa to lead the American delegation at a memorial service for former South African President Nelson Mandela in Johannesburg. But his party is reportedly stuck in traffic and he is said to have arrived late at the stadium for the ceremony. [Snip] But Mr Clinton, Mr Carter and his wife Rosalynn have all traveled separately to the event. According to reports, Mr Obama and his delegation are stuck in a lines of traffic caused by tens of thousands of people making their way to the event. Mr Obama is among the foreign leaders who
