as teacher did NOTHING´

Daily Mail [UK], by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 1/13/2013 7:26:10 AM

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

The original report of this horrendous incident is linked at the site--I suggest reading that too.

And this teacher is a member of a profession that this country wants to arm with a weapon? I don´t think so.

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.

Edward Dana
Executive Director"

"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.

Of course the teacher did nothing. Do you think she wants to be sued by the boy´s parents!? Better to lose the job than her house.

Until we put the teacher back in charge of the classroom and keep the lawyers/judges/juries out, we can expect nothing less of our teachers.

The "Social Worker" at the school put the victim and one of the thugs in a room and told them "to work out their differences"!
The girl left the room with a gash over her eye!

I HATE this!

Her mother tried to transfer the girl to another school and SHE COULDN´T. They made that girl attend that school and endure mocking for MONTHS!

The liberals have lost their minds!

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.

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.

We are in the same circumstance today.

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.

Even by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change´s own lamentable standards, its new report--by Working Group III of the Fifth Assessment Report--makes no sense whatsoever. [Snip] Before the report´s formal release, US officials--who had seen an earlier draft--wrote to the United Nations demanding it be amended. "The discussion of the economic costs of mitigation is too narrow and does not incorporate co-benefits of action." Loosely translated this means: "If we admit how much we´re spending to such little purpose, the taxpaying public is going to kill us." So the report was duly amended to suggest that the benefits of wind turbines, solar panels,

Her dark, macabre tales of Gothic romance and revenge have enthralled millions of readers and remain in print decades after her death. But for Daphne du Maurier, the wealth and worldwide fame she earned from novels such as Rebecca and Jamaica Inn were a poor substitute for the acclaim she craved from literary critics who dismissed her as a second-rank “romantic novelist”. Now her only son, Kits Browning, speaking for the first time ahead of the BBC’s three-part adaptation of Jamaica Inn, has criticised the “Hampstead literati” for overlooking one of the last century’s most original literary talents.

If there was a standard operating manual for the secret services of the world´s dodgier regimes, it would no doubt omit any mention of the term "agent provocateur". In Russia, Burma, Iran et al, state-backed agents never get involved in causing trouble. Instead, there are only "patriotic local citizens", who, unable to contain themselves, rise up in righteous indignation against those who might betray the nation. That, if Russia is to be believed, is exactly what it happening in eastern Ukraine right now. According to a statement this morning from the Russian foreign minister, Sergei Lavrov, there are "no Russian

What is Vladimir Putin’s game? The recent unrest in eastern Ukraine has been presented by the Kremlin as an autonomous phenomenon, an upsurge of patriotic feeling among embattled ethnic Russians who long for the protection of the Motherland against what they see as a neo-nationalist regime in Kiev. It may be true that the initial impulse came from locals acting without Russia’s direct involvement. But it is becoming clear that, just as in Crimea, many of the “separatists” are not just taking their orders from Moscow, but are very probably Russian troops in paper-thin disguise. The key difference is that,

Ireland, once a rock-solid Christian country, has now become so intolerant of Christian beliefs that its leading opponent of gay marriage may be forced to leave the country because of fears for his personal safety. After repeated threats and obscene verbal attacks, John Waters, a nationally-known newspaper columnist, author and broadcaster who supports Christian family traditions, says he is now unable to go into the centre of Dublin at night because he fears for his own safety. The attacks began after Waters threatened the state-owned broadcaster RTE with legal action after a drag queen called ‘Panti Bliss’ appeared on a television programme

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

On Fox News Sunday, political analyst Brit Hume said that Eric Holder’s claim that his treatment at the hands of Representative Louie Gohmert (R-TX) at a House hearing this week was unprecedented toward an Attorney General, made him a “crybaby,” and that he and President Barack Obama had in fact benefited “enormously” from being the first African Americans in their respective positions. “This strikes me as kinda crybaby stuff from Holder,” Hume said. “My sense about this is both Eric Holder and Barack Obama have benefited politically enormously from the fact that they are African American and the first to

Let me obliterate a bit of confusion here: the Obama administration attempted to go to war with a rancher in Nevada. Let me amplify a little bit of truth: They tucked tail and have returned home. And let me add a bit of clarity: they had no choice! As the nation began to become familiar with the plight of the family of Cliven Bundy, many of us harkened back to another standoff in which the Federal government attempted to bully it´s outcome: Waco, Texas and the Branch Davidian massacre. It is telling that in the Nevada case the feds pulled out so

They’re both qualified, respectful of each other (shocker!), and represent the vast majority of middle America. So what’s not to like about another Clinton/Bush race for 2016? When you mention the prospect of Clinton vs. Bush 2016 a funny thing happens. First, there is the reflexive response: "Oh no, not again. We don´t need more dynastic politics in this country." But upon further reflection, you realize Jeb Bush vs. Hillary Clinton would be a great race and actually good for the country. Let´s review. QUALIFICATIONS—THEY’VE BOTH GOT THEM. Barack Obama won the presidency because in an election where the premium was on change, it mattered little

A rapid shift to wind and solar power is needed if the world is to avoid catastrophic global warming, the United Nations warns in a crucial report today. Emissions of greenhouse gases need to be cut by up to 70 per cent before 2050 to control climate change, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says. ‘Large-scale changes in energy systems’ are required, with coal power stations to be switched off and replaced by wind and solar. And the transformation needs to be made in the next 15 years or controlling climate change will become increasingly harder and more expensive. The report was published

Chelsea Clinton says when people ask her these days whether she wants to go into politics, her answer isn’t an automatic “no.” The 34-year-old former first daughter told Fast Company in an interview published Monday, “for so long the answer was just a visceral no. Not because I had made any conscientious, deliberate decision, but since people had been asking for as long as literally I could remember, it was no." Now, the only child of former President Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton explains, "I live in a city and a state and a country where I

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

LAS VEGAS — The Nevada Republican Party stripped opposition to abortion and gay marriage from its platform Saturday as state convention delegates instead focused on judging fellow Republicans on their worthiness to serve in office and adherence to GOP values. The platform, with few changes, was adopted overwhelmingly as the Las Vegas convention stretched late into the evening. The vote mirrors that of the Clark County GOP, which voted earlier to remove platform language defining marriage as between a man and a woman and statements opposing abortion. Many Republicans are re-evaluating their strong stances on conservative social issues as public

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

President Obama pulled a surprise move Monday at the White House’s Easter Prayer Breakfast when he selected Gene Robinson to lead the closing prayer. Robinson is famously known as the first openly gay Episcopal bishop. Talking Points Memo’s Tom Kludt spotted the following tweet from Robinson, who was in attendance: (Tweet) Robinson, 66, became diocesan bishop of New Hampshire in March 2004. He retired in January 2013 and is currently a senior fellow at the progressive

A Russian fighter jet made multiple, close-range passes near an American warship in the Black Sea for more than 90 minutes Saturday amid escalating tensions in the region, a U.S. military official said Monday. In the first public account of the incident, the official said the Russian Fencer flew within 1,000 yards of the USS Donald Cook, a Navy destroyer, at about 500 feet above sea level. Ship commanders considered the actions provocative and inconsistent with international agreements, prompting the ship to issue several radio queries and warnings. The fighter appeared to be unarmed and never was in danger of

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can
