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

Published

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.”

WATCH: John Oliver exposes Trump’s lies about vote-by-mail — and the Fox News ‘cult’ claiming the election is already ‘rigged’

"Last Week Tonight" host John Oliver's main story Sunday refuted President Donald Trump's latest crusade against vote-by-mail. Trump announced on Twitter that the more people who vote in an election, the more Republicans tend to lose. So, he wants fewer people to have access to the ballot in November, even if people are too scared to go out during the coronavirus crisis.

Oliver called out Missouri Gov. Mike Parson (R-MO), who outright told people not to vote if they were too afraid to vote in the local elections next week.

"Well, hold on there," Oliver interjected. "Voting is a right. It has to be easy to understand and accessible to anyone."

John Oliver rips Fox News’ Tucker Carlson for urging ‘order’ from people of color — but never demanding it of police

Published

on

John Oliver opened his Sunday show, shredding Fox News host Tucker Carlson for uring "order" among protesters, but refusing to urge "order" to police and "wannabe police" who can't stop killing people.

It's a lot, Oliver explained. "How these protests are a response to a legacy of police misconduct, both in Minneapolis and the nation at large and how that misconduct is, itself, built on a legacy of white supremacy that prioritizes the comfort of white Americans over the safety of people of color."

While some of it is complicated, Oliver conceded, most of it is "all too clear."

Cars set on fire blocks from White House as DC protests turn violent

Published

on

The Washington, D.C. protests turned violent as the city approached the 11 p.m. curfew the mayor instituted Sunday afternoon.

The policy of D.C. police is that when they are attacked, they advance forward. So, when fireworks were fired, the line of officers began pushing the protesters back further from the White House. Behind the line of police officers also stand a line of National Guard troops that President Donald Trump has demanded stand watch in the city.

Lights that normally shine on the White House have also been turned off, reporters revealed.
