New York police decline to file report after 6th grade Muslim girl is called ‘ISIS’ and punched at school

Police officers were forced to respond recently after a Muslim girl was reportedly attacked at a Bronx public school, but no official report was filed.

According to Inside Edition, the attack occurred at P.S. 89, known as the Williamsbridge School, on Nov. 19, just days after 130 people were killed in terrorist attacks in Paris.

The report said that boys at the school called the 6th grade girl “ISIS.” The girl was allegedly placed in a headlock and punched while the boys tried to rip off her hijab.

Although officers responded to the call, no police report was taken, Inside Edition revealed. It was not immediately clear why a report was not filed.

A disciplinary hearing has been put on hold while the boys’ parents obtained legal representation.

“Unfortunately young Muslims have been experiencing this for quite some time,” Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) spokesperson told Corey Saylor. “Since August of last year… we’ve seen a cycle of Islamophobia that’s had a much more violent tinge to it than we’ve seen in many, many years.”

In a statement, the Department of Education insisted that it was “committed to promoting safe and supportive environments and a community of inclusion in all DOE schools.”

The skit featured a house in San Francisco, California, a second in Charleston, South Carolina and a third in Atlanta, Georgia.

Each dinner table debated impeachment, and the differences between President Donald Trump and his predecessor, President Barack Obama.

But then the snowman said that none of their votes matter.

"They'll debate the issues all year long, but then it all comes down to 1,000 people in Wisconsin who won't even think about the election until the morning of," the snowman said. "And that's the magic of the Electoral College."
