Concerns are growing about increased crime at Los Angeles public schools in the aftermath of the Board of Education voting to defund and slash the district’s police force.
Reports of violent assaults between students and weapons brought to schools in Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) have parents worried, and some are reluctant to even send their children back to school every day, according to an investigation by CBS Los Angeles.
One video showed a 15-year-old girl getting allegedly assaulted and knocked to the ground at school by other students. The girl’s nose was broken, and she ended up with a concussion as well. Her mother came to pick her up shortly afterward.
