According to the 12 year old boy, it was a staring contest and the girl was “laughing” the whole time. But when the girl’s parents found out that a black boy was staring at their daughter, the boy was suspended from school the next day.
“I never knew she was scared because she was laughing,” the boy wrote in an apology letter. “I understand I done the wrong thing that will never happen again. I will start to think before I do so I am not in this situation.”
The incident happened at a school in Glendale, Ohio. The boy’s parents files a lawsuit against the school claiming their child was denied due process, but a judge dismissed the suit and the suspension was upheld.
According to a statement from the Archdiocese of Cincinnati:
Judge Patrick Dinkelacker listened to the plaintiff’s arguments yesterday, rejected them, and dismissed the complaint against the school. We aren’t going to comment any further on particular issues concerning our students.
