Video released of racially motivated violence at Springfield, Ohio elementary school

Police say they are investigating it as a hate crime

On Friday, February 10th, Black students assaulted White students and ritualistically humiliated them at an elementary school in Springfield, Ohio. They forced the victims to kneel and swear loyalty to Black Lives Matter.

School officials did not bother to call the police until parents complained on Monday. Almost three weeks later, the school released a surveillance video showing some of the violence. Local police say the incident is being investigated as a hate crime.

It has yet to be explained why no teachers intervened while the incident was occurring.

Kenwood Elementary houses grades K-6 and is described as 58% White, 16% Black, 16% Mixed-race, and 9% Hispanic.
