school violence

Modesto police are investigating a White student for a possible hate crime. He appears in a Snapchat video with a noose and gun, directly threatening a Black classmate.

A group of parents and a pro-charter school organization sue New York for allowing violence to go unchecked in classrooms. But the city's mayor says major crimes are decreasing.

Video surfaced on YouTube showing Texas school police officer body-slamming middle school girl. Officials placed him on paid leave while they investigate the incident.

A pro-charter school group released a report that claims violence surged last year in New York City public schools by 23 percent. But education officials reject that claim.

Based on a viral video of Deputy Officer Ben Fields assaulting a Black female high school student, a local sheriff has requested that the SC FBI and the US Justice department intervene for an independent investigation.
