Fire School Staff Who Allegedly Lied to Child’s Mother About Attack That Lead to His Suicide

Target: Erica Copeland-Dansby, Cincinnati Board of Education President

Goal: Hold school officials responsible for allegedly lying about an attack against 8-year-old who committed suicide.

An 8-year-old boy committed suicide after reportedly being attacked and left unconscious at school. The homicide detective said that surveillance footage shows another student punch the victim in the stomach, causing him to fall to his hands and knees. When he gets up, the victim tries to shake the aggressor’s hand, but he’s jerked to the floor. According to the detective, the aggressor then begins celebrating as the victim lies motionless on the floor, where he was left for over seven minutes before school administrators come to his aid. Other children walk over him, some of them mocking, poking, nudging, and kicking him, said the detective.

According to his mother’s attorney, Carla Leader, she didn’t learn of the bullying incident until after she found her son dead. On the day of the attack, Leader says school officials called the mother and told her that her son had fainted. They also told her that his vitals were fine and that he was alert, but they didn’t bother telling her that her son had been attacked and left unconscious. Had the school officials told this mother the truth, there’s a good chance this small child would still be alive today. Please sign this petition to demand that the school officials be fired if guilty of lying to the mother of this little boy.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mrs. Copeland-Dansby,

An 8-year-old boy committed suicide two days after allegedly being attacked by another student at school. The mother’s attorney says that school officials didn’t even tell her that her son had been attacked, even though the incident was caught on surveillance video. They instead told her that he fainted, but his vitals were fine. The little boy, who laid unconscious for over seven minutes before school administrators came to his aid, was reportedly left unconscious, vomiting, and with stomach pain. His mother didn’t find out about the attack until her attorney had obtained a police investigative file regarding the event.

This little boy lost his life in the most tragic, lonesome way possible. Had school officials handled this appropriately and told the truth, perhaps he’d still be alive today. We, the undersigned, demand that the school officials be held responsible for this, if guilty of the allegations.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]
