An insane video caught on CCTV shows the moment that black children at an Ohio elementary school forced white students to kneel and pledge to Black Lives Matter. Multiple kids reported being punched and assaulted as well.
The incident, which occurred earlier this month in Springfield, Ohio, was previously alleged and unproven by video.
But Thursday, the city of Springfield released the footage, which was taken from CCTV.
WHIO originally reported on the wild incident:
Police were informed by the school’s principal that “a group of Black students had gathered several white students on a specific spot of the playground and forced them to state ‘Black Lives Matter’ against their will,”, the police report states.
Students who tried to avoid the situation were “chased down and escorted, dragged, or carried to the playground,” the report alleges. The group of students also allegedly filmed the students who were forced to make the statement.
One student was punched in the head by one of the suspects, the police report states.
Ryan Springer and Ashley Henthorne said their 12-year-old son was one of the students forced on the playground.
“I mean I’m angry as a parent but I understand they are children. It’s not okay to hate anybody because of their skin color, or their gender or sexual orientation, or anything like that. Nobody should be hating anybody,” Springer said.
Henthorne said she was not notified of the incident when it happened Friday, but noticed a change in her son. When she was notified of what happened Monday she said the changes she saw in her son made sense.
“I kept asking him all weekend, are you OK? And he kept saying, ‘yeah, I’m just tired’ And then when I got the phone call Monday about it, I was like, ‘that explained a lot.’” Henthrone said.
Some believe this is the result of Critical Race Theory on steroids – even in a deep red state.
