A teenage student who brutally beat a 9-year-old girl will now face felony battery

The aftermath of the brutal beating of a 9-year-old girl on a school bus last week continues to unfold. One of the men responsible for the attack now faces criminal charges, according to Miami-Dade prosecutors.

TGP previously reported on a horrifying video showing a large 15-year-old black teenager and others pouncing on the helpless little girl and beating her in the head, neck and face. He had no chance to repel these monsters.

The mischievous teenagers then started assaulting the girl’s 10-year-old brother.

The mother of the child who was brutally beaten told Local 10 News Miami that she reported the violent incident to Coconut Palm K-8 Academy, but the school refused to do anything. Instead, they advised her to withdraw her children from school.

The mother, who wished to remain anonymous, also revealed that she is filing a complaint against Coconut Palm K-8 Academy and pursuing criminal charges against the juveniles who beat her children.

Another mother said there is a huge problem of violence at Coconut Palm K-8 Academy and nothing is being done about it no matter how many parents complain.

“It needs to be taken care of now. Our children are in danger in schools where we trust other people to do their jobs,” said the mother, who wanted to be identified only as Jenny. “It is not reasonable. It doesn’t matter what was said. Our children need to learn that violence does not solve anything.”

But as Jim Hoft reports, the 15-year-old received a slap on the wrist when the school police officer issued a mere civil citation, which is just a written arrest. Other assailants got a complete free pass.

According to the Office of Justice Program, the primary purpose of a civil citation is to “divert first-time, low-level juvenile offenders out of the juvenile justice system early in the process. The purpose of the program is to limit eligible youth’s contact with the system and reduce the potential stigma associated with an arrest record.”

Prosecutors appear to have misunderstood the school police and now at least one perpetrator must be held accountable.

From the Miami Herald:

Miami-Dade State Attorney Catherine Fernandez Rundle said in a news release that the footage “clearly shows that this beating was much more serious than a simple student dispute.”

“We believe that, based on the evidence and the circumstances, the use of a civil citation was not commensurate with the level of violence that the 15-year-old displayed against his much younger and younger victim,” Fernandez Rundle said. “As a result, we filed criminal battery charges in our juvenile court.”
