Students walk out amid threats against Missouri high school following brutal beating controversy

After a brutal fight that left a white female student hospitalized from her head being repeatedly slammed against the concrete by a 15-year-old female charged with assault, Hazelwood East High School in Missouri was sent threats that led to many students leaving the campus.  

According to the St. Louis Dispatch, students left the Missouri high school on Monday as police investigated threats after the fallout of an arrest of the 15-year-old girl who, during a fight with another student, hit the victim's head against the concrete three times. The victim is in critical condition as of Monday.  

The Post Millennial obtained social media posts from students discussing the threats online. One student at the school posted that the school is in “danger” because students could not move forward from the incident. The same student appeared frustrated in the post and insisted that people at the school “grow up” and that if students did that the school wouldn’t be in the position it is in.

The Dispatch reported that Jordyn Elston, the spokesperson for the school district, stated police conducted a "bomb drill" on campus at the school, but did not give official word to leave the school. Police were seen outside the school at around 1:30 pm, when students began leaving.

Tracy Panus, spokesperson for St. Louis County police, said officers were investigating "many" threats at the school and were providing additional patrols.

Another teen posted online responding to the initial reports of a “bomb threat” saying that in reality, the threat was about a different situation at the school.  

A parent, Lisa King, told the outlet that she was concerned for her daughter's safety but was not surprised by the developments at the school.  

“(Safety) has been a problem here for a long time,” King said. 

Sophomore Shalimar Ross told the outlet that the girl who was beaten on the road had been bullied recently by other students and that she was encouraged to "fight back" against it. Ross added that because of national news coverage students "don't know what to believe and what not to." 

Police responded to a call at around 2:30 pm local time last Friday to the situation by the school. The black 15-year-old in the video was charged with assault the day after and the white teen identified in other reports as Kailee, went to the hospital with a severe brain injury.  

Anaya Bluiett, who is a parent with a junior at the school, said that violence and bullying has been a problem for years.
