Horrific Video Shows Student Beaten Unconscious While Teacher Does Nothing

School violence is on the rise, and this latest incident caught on video is repulsive and extremely hard to watch. Be warned. It should be noted the incident was filmed by students on their cell phones, students who sat around and did virtually nothing while an attempted murder was i progress. Their teacher also, basically did nothing., as you’ll see from the video.

The footage shows a girl sitting at her desk being grabbed from behind by the hair, by another girl. That girl then proceeds to punch the defenseless girl sitting in the head dozens of times until the girl goes unconscious. Then she keeps punching and punching and no one does anything. Note before you watch the video that the girl does survive, however there have been no specific details on her current condition. Here’s the video…

The incident happened at Las Vegas High School in the Clark County School District. In the video, while the girl is getting her head beaten, you can see one person attempt to reach for the arm of the attacker, to no avail. You can also hear someone, possibly the same person trying to grab the arm, to “stop, stop, stop.” You can also hear. Possibly the same person, say “get off her.” And in the background, in the far corner, stands the teacher, apparently unwilling to help a student in risk of being killed.

You can see that at first, the victim tries to protect her head by putting her hands up and over, but as the beating continued, her hands dropped, as did her head, to the desk. Even though she sat motionlessly and clearly unconscious, the girl behind her continued to punch her in the head. No one around moves, some in the class don’t even turn around to look at what’s going on, suggesting that perhaps they’re used to seeing this sort of extreme violence in the room.

The entire incident, as recorded, last about 18 seconds. For around ten of those seconds the victim appears to be unconscious. There has been no word on what precipitated the ugly school violence assault and so far, no report on how badly the young lady sitting was injured. The attacker landed over 30 punches to the prone girl’s head.

The Clark County School District stated disciplinary action has been taken against the student but because of privacy laws, they cannot comment on what kind. Superintendent Jesus F. Jara said in an emailed statement, “Violent acts, assaults, and bullying will not be tolerated in the Clark County School District, and those who choose to engage in these activities will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.”

As far as the law is concerned, Clark County School District Police Department announced that a Las Vegas High School student was cited for battery. There has been no indication of any reprimand or punishment for the teacher who allowed it to happen. No other details were given but Las Vegas High School Principal, Ronnie Guerzon, sent an email to the parents regarding the school violence incident. In it he said as follows…

“Earlier this week your student may have witnessed an altercation in one of their classes. Administration is aware and responding to this matter and it is being addressed through the appropriate channels. As a reminder, we expect all students to adhere to the CCSD Student Code of Conduct. Please discuss with your student appropriate behavior on campus.”

The Oxford dictionary defines the world “altercation” as: “a noisy argument or disagreement, especially in public.” That doesn’t seem at all like an accurate description of what happened, but the school has refused to go any further to inform parents of the true nature of the violent assault.

The Clark County School District also released their own statement concerning the horrific act of school violence…

“School administration is aware of the matter and is taking this incident seriously. CCSD investigates every reported case of bullying and takes appropriate action if needed. We are unable to discuss individual student disciplinary matters due to privacy laws. However, in general, students can face administrative disciplinary action at school or be referred to law enforcement for possible criminal prosecution depending on the severity of the matter.

“We strongly encourage students and members of the community not to share footage of this incident or any other student fights. Showing this video serves no purpose other than to further ridicule and embarrass the victim and embolden bullies.

“Any student who captures photos or video of an assault on-campus, off-campus, on a bus or during a school activity should immediately turn the footage over to a teacher, school administrator or police. We investigate and address all concerns of bullying.”

This is only one of many many incidents of public school violence seen since kids have returned to in-person learning. We recently reported on an incident that took place in Pennsylvania at Pittsburgh’s Brashear High School where one male student picked up another and body-slammed him to the ground. The attacker then stands over the downed boy and proceeds to face stomp him numerous times. Just when you think it’s over, the attacker quickly returns to add a few more boot stomps to the unconscious boy’s face. It’s sickening. That incident was one of numerous scenes of violence seen at the Pittsburgh-area high school that eventually got the Brashear High School Principal some paid time off.

Many comments on social media had little empathy for the teacher or the students in the classroom with some calling for the teacher’s job. Others have asked for charges filed against the teacher for not helping the assaulted student. Some even want charges against each and every child in the classroom who did not stop the school violence they were witnessing.

Of course, there are others, who are not on the side of the teacher or students but are quick to point out that the level of gun violence seen in schools in the past could be a major reason why so many are now afraid to step up and do anything. They refused to blame teachers or kids.
