"A school board cannot avoid summary judgment as a matter of law when a school administrator willfully ignores a plan to use a 14-year-old special needs student as bait to catch a student with a known history of sexual and violent misconduct, and as a result, the student is sodomized," wrote attorneys for the U.S. Department of Justice today.…
Medical evidence confirmed anal tearing and bruising. The girl withdrew from school and moved to another state.
The federal brief argues school officials minimized the incident, listing it in the boy’s extensive record as “inappropriate touching.” The federal attorneys note one assistant principal, despite seeing photos of the injuries, contended school officials could not know if the girl had consented.
"Vice-Principal Dunaway testified that (the girl) was responsible for herself once she entered the bathroom," wrote federal attorneys.
Following a five-day suspension, the boy was sent to an alternative school, but soon returned to Sparkman Middle, writes the Justice Department.
The brief contends ”…a jury could easily conclude that the school acted with deliberate indifference when, despite two sexual misconduct complaints against (the boy) days before he sodomized (the girl), it provided him unsupervised access to students and failed to protect (the girl).”
"In fact, Sparkman’s practice of recording unrevealing and misleading descriptions of past incidents, coupled with its failure to maintain any record of unsubstantiated complaints and documentation for proven infractions beyond the current academic year, amounts to intentionally closing its eyes to (the boy’s) dangerousness."
So this happened in my home town, and it’s horrible. What’s even more horrible is that it doesn’t look as though any criminal charges are being brought against the adults at Sparkman Middle School who knew what was going on and allowed it to happen. Like I straight up don’t care where you’re from, this needs to have about 500% more media attention than it’s currently receiving. This happened in 2010, and has been so neatly covered up by my home town’s school board that I’m sick just thinking about it.
Here is the contact information for the Madison County schools administration. A friend of mine suggested titling any emails you send to superintendent with “Sparkman Middle School Rape Case,” just to drill home that in no way was what happened to this girl “inappropriate touching,” as was actually put into the school’s incident report.
More people are concerned with why women stay in abusive relationships than why men are abusing women
because as a society we are fascinated with the idea of a woman “wanting it” and “asking for it” but we don’t think twice about the idea of a man hitting a woman. To us, it’s normal. It’s not unusual.
Hello!! I’m in need of a HUGE signal boost right now (and maybe a big reporting session) because my best friend is being blackmailed by her ex boyfriend.
I’m not exactly sure what I’m supposed to put here, but I feel like this should be a warning for anyone who knows him and just a general informative thing. Jacob lives in Australia and is 16 years of age. They’ve had a very unhealthy relationship and he’s threatened sending out her nudes multiple times. Jacob is very manipulative and emotionally abusive towards her and even ends up pulling me and her other friends into not being able to do anything because it’ll end up hurting her. He’s made around 7 Twitter accounts to contact my friend in the times that she was trying to get out of the relationship.
In the picture above, he’s posted her nudes and threatened her.
ALL IM ASKING IS FOR YOU TO REPORT HIM ON EVERYTHING AND ANYTHING:
His Twitter accounts all start with @/neinthousand but the one that was most recently used was: @/neinthousand12 (but it was apparently deleted)
His Facebook account is:Jacob R Hynes, and he has more but I am unable to find them. They’re under Jacob Hynes and the like.
********** UPDATES!!! **********
First, we thought we had a compromise.
Then this happened not even a minute after:
PLEASE CONTINUE REBLOGGING THIS. My friend is only 15 years of age and this is absolutely horrible. We’re getting ahold of local authorities but if you see the pictures anywhere (namely twitter) REPORT THEM IMMEDIATELY.
Oh god I feel so sick for this poor girl
Get the police at his house immediately, blackmail is a serious crime, and this also constitutes emotional and sexual abuse. If he uploads ANYTHING he’ll be breaking child porn laws. Get him on anything you can.
My brother sent me a picture of a few young girls protesting outside of Party City in Harlem, today. They want Princess Tiana back.
Amazing! “Kids don’t see racial differences.” “Tiana is available online only” You go girls!!!
"Representation doesn’t matter."
"Kids don’t see race."
These girls just proved you all wrong.

"Protip: If you want white America to care about the due process of people of color, place the crime in the context of professional sports."
Or, hell, just sports period. (See: Malik Richmond of Steubenville, Jameis Winston of Florida State.)
