Georgian First Grader Beaten and Sexually Assaulted by Male Classmates…School Says Boys Just “Rough Housing”
Valdosta - Three first grade boys kept a female classmate outside after recess by hiding in the woods, pushing her face first into the ground. The victim, whose name is being withheld, has suffered scarring to the right side of her face from broken tree branches and rocks that she was allegedly assaulted with both physically and sexually.
The victim was able to escape the male classmates after fifteen minutes of torture, running into a fifth grade classroom and alerting a teacher of what had happened. The principle of the elementary school said he had a “man to man” talk with the boys and their parents, giving them two days of suspension. He neglected calling the local authorities claiming “it did not seem like a police matter, just simple rough housing gone a little too far”.
The parents of the victim are looking to press charges on the boys for sexual and physical assault, as well as a possible law suit against the school district. District superintendent was not available for comment.
This is called rape culture you guys. The girl was 7 years old and they called it “rough housing” between boys.
This is actually called “making shit up for notes.”
I thought it was curious that the post didn’t link to any actual article, and yet they DID take the time to add a source link to CNN’s main page.
I did a google search for the article, and the only results I got were this post. I used CNN.com’s search function, and again came up empty. So I sent OP a polite ask inquiring about an actual source before I reblogged it.
Then, while I waited for a reply, I decided to do an image search of the girl pictured at the top of the post (by the way, if the girl’s “name is being withheld,” why would they have published a photo of her? That’s another major red flag).
The girl pictured above is named Makayla McEvoy, a young Australian girl from Orange, New South Wales. On January 1st of 2012, she was attacked by a kangaroo (that link is to the article where I found the photo — another article with a video of the news report is here).
I’ve since sent OP another not-as-nice ask telling them not to bother trying to come up with a plausible reply to my first ask, since I’ve already discovered the ruse.
I can’t for the life of me figure out why dropmycumberbritches would make something like this up. Is having a minorly successful tumblr post really worth the cost of your integrity?
