Mother of autistic son reports 2nd incident at Warren school

Published: Thu, May 3, 2012 @ 12:04 a.m.

Staff report


The mother of an autistic 7-year-old boy who attends Warren’s Jefferson K-8 School has reported a second incident in less than a week involving the behavior of a fellow student at the end of the school day.

Vanessa White of Charles Avenue Northeast first reported Friday her son was assaulted as he was walking to the school bus.

The boy said another student pushed the boy in the chest, causing him to fall to the ground, then punched him in the eye five times and kicked him in the hip.

The boy was treated at ValleyCare Trumbull Memorial Hospital and had swelling, redness and bruising on his eye, police said.

On Tuesday afternoon, the 7-year-old reported another boy on the school bus said he was going to bring a gun to school and shoot the victim because the victim had gotten his friend into trouble over Friday’s incident.

Aaron Schwab, spokesman for the school district, said the two incidents are being investigated, and the district has been in contact with the boy’s mother.

“The district takes all reports of violence or harassment very seriously, and all students found to be involved with causing harm to or harassing another student will be punished,” Schwab said.

What a shame this poor kid has to put up with being beaten and harassed.
These 2 recent incidents are by no means the only times this 7 year old autistic boy has been bullied.

Just a shame the school can't or won't take the necessary auction(s) to stop this nonsense so this kid isn't afraid to go to school.

There's an issue here and I think I know what that issue is but I'll reserve comment for now

i remember when i was in grade school....the teachers would walk you to the corner to cross the street..........or get on the school bus.......but now they go have coffee......remember by law a school is responsible for a student to the time they enter their front door..........i don't mean to walk them home....bus drivers are responsible for them to get off and into their door........but what's to walking out the school door....and walking a few feet to the bus.......exercise helps ....do you think a child will remember you for being there? or not being there when their hurt?...poor baby every child doesn't need bullying.....sorry to the mom..hug the baby once for me.......i know what bulling does.......to their mind.....it stays forever.......

Someone needs to "punish" the parents of the offending hooligans...i.e....dad needs to go to their house and whoop some a$$...
