A sixth-grade student in Jackson Township, Ohio, was harassed by a gang of Trump-loving classmates who made a “racially charged threat against her life,” according to Fox 8.
The incident occurred Tuesday in the lunchroom at Jackson Memorial Middle School, when the 11-year-old girl and a friend were surrounded by 10 boys, The Hill reported.
Nicole Arnold, the girl’s mother said her daughter, whose name has not released, and her friend had finished lunch when the boys surrounded them, locking arms, chanting, “This is Trump (MAGA) country and we are the wall and all Black people should die.”
Arnold who described her daughter as “smart, sweet, and very soft spoken,” said the incident scared her.
“She’s never had to deal with an issue where it’s been about her skin color and that’s disturbing to me and it’s disturbing to her,” Arnold said.
Mark Brink, the chief of Jackson Township Police department, took the necessary measures and turned the report the mother made about the incident over to detectives, stating that all threats relating to violence “will be taken seriously.”
“We are going to interview the kids that were involved,” he said. “There’s video of the incident. We are going to look at that and we are going to find out the truth, then we will make decisions based on what that investigation shows and it will be forwarded to the prosecutor. They will look at it then to determine whether charges are warranted or not.”
The school district released a statement pertaining to the threat saying:
“We are aware of the allegation involving a sixth grade student(s) that may have taken place in our middle school’s cafeteria. We will be interviewing students that can provide information regarding this complaint. School safety continues to be a top priority of Jackson Local Schools.”
Arnold said she is pleased about the school taking the necessary measures in handling the situation. She said she wants her daughter to be safe when she goes back to school.
“We need to pull together as parents of these children—of the youth—and let them know that this behavior is not ok. It’s not going to be tolerated for anybody. If we can help prevent this from happening to another kid, that is our end goal here.”
