This is our second report on violence at public schools during the new school year.
Three shot, one killed at Choctaw High School in Oklahoma City during a game against Midwest City High.
Cordea Carter, a 16-year-old Black male, was killed, and a classified juvenile has been arrested. One of the victims is an unnamed 42-year-old man who was shot by an off-duty cop working security.
Choctaw is only 5% Black, but perp came from Midwest, which is 43% Black.
Brett Semien, 48, the principal of Central Middle School in Eunice, LA, was charged with a misdemeanor for allegedly putting two students in an empty room and telling them to fight.
In 2020, Semien was charged with cruelty to a juvenile, battery on a cop, and resisting arrest. The 2020 charges stem from an alleged attack on his own son. It is unclear if he was ever prosecuted. The school system promoted him from assistant principal to principal since 2020.
