Pennsylvania 8th-graders suspended for throwing rocks and racial slurs at black cheerleaders

Published

Two Pennsylvania eighth grade students have been suspended after throwing rocks and hurling racial slurs at a visiting football team.

“High school football, as we all know, can provoke some strong emotions and some hot tempers, but what happened here Friday goes well beyond trash talk — this was racial hatred in verbal form,” Fox 29’s Bruce Gordon reported.

Cheltenham High School’s football team had rocks thrown at their bus upon arriving in Quakertown, witnesses told officials from both schools.

“Our cheerleaders and members of our band were insulted, using racial terms– the most divisive racial terms you can use,” Cheltenham superintendent Dr. Wagner Marseille said.

“The n-word?” Gordon asked.

“The n-word,” Dr. Marseille noted in affirmation.

The superintendent of the responsible students suspended two eighth graders after an investigation that interviewed a dozen middle school students.

“My heart is broken. Fortunately, it’s just a few children and I say children middle school students, but they embarrassed me, they embarrassed our school board and our community,” Quackertown superintendent Dr. William Harner admitted.

"Bond is about the guns and the girls," Shapiro said, noting that a woman in a seductive role was not realistic.

Published

Federal investigators have been able to “dramatically expand” their investigation into financier and sex offender Jeffrey Epstein as prosecutors bring sex trafficking charges against him, Assistant U.S. Attorney Alex Rossmiller said in court on Monday.

The government revealed the expansion of the case at the day’s bail hearing. In searching the defendant’s house, investigators found an old passport with Epstein picture and a fake name that listed Saudi Arabia as the location of his residence, the prosecutor said.

The judge was surprised at this revelation, NBC News reported, asking the attorney, “Say again?”

Will Hurd becomes first GOP lawmaker to condemn Trump’s ‘racist and xenophobic’ attacks on Dems

Published

on

Rep. Will Hurd (R-TX) on Monday became the first Republican lawmaker to unequivocally condemn President Donald Trump's racist attacks against four Democratic lawmakers.

When asked by CNN's Christiane Amanpour about Trump's weekend tweets, in which he told Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) to “go back” to their countries despite the fact that all four are American citizens, Hurd did not hold back on repudiating the president's statements.

"Those tweets are racist, and xenophobic," he said. "They’re also inaccurate. The four women he’s referring to are actually citizens of the United States."
