On Thursday evening at approximately 8:45 p.m. the Wayne County Sheriff received information regarding alleged misconduct by a student at Spring Valley High School. The video sent showed a student abusing another student who did not defend himself.

Upon notification, Sheriff Thompson immediately assigned a deputy to investigate the allegations. The Wayne County Sheriff’s Department immediately contacted Wayne County School Officials and the Prosecuting Attorney’s Office. The investigator for the Sheriff’s Department also contacted the guardian of the victim who advised that the victim had been seen by medical personnel.

School officials advised that the suspect had been suspended pending an investigation.

Sheriff Rick Thompson and the investigator attended a meeting regarding the incident at Spring Valley High School this morning with school officials. The Sheriff and Investigator then responded to the victim’s residence and interviewed the victim. Several witnesses have also been interviewed.

One juvenile has been charged with Assault, Battery, and Conspiracy. Two other juveniles have also been charged with conspiracy.

This incident is still under investigation. For further information, contact the Wayne County Sheriff’s Department.

Perhaps the kid who got his butt whooped will learn how to defend himself against skinny punk kids. I am betting the kid's parents were bullying in high school too and that the bully has his parents in prison.

Quoting Jaime:
Glad something was done.... Finally someone takes a stand on bullying... He should have a whole list of charges... Not to mention it is an African American beating a white kid... But if a white person even says something to an African American they are racist...Why such a difference?!?


It's not a black kid. Geez. Get over your racist rant here. He looks Chinese, maybe.

Quoting William Wagoner:
I think you need to re watch the video, the kid is clearly not special needs, and to top it off he wasn't even hit 10 times in total... As well it turns out that the kid did have his phone, this is racial profiling, free KG... #WVIsBroken



No Mr. Wagoner. It's not. There are better ways to handle someone taking your phone than to beat him while he is defenseless. I have mixed kids and I would beat the shot outta my own if they did this. Let him rot.

Well, as is typical, the first thing the black kid did was play the race card; as did William Wagoner. It doesn't matter what color they are, if they are bullies, they need to be suspended, put on probation, not allowed to participate in any extracurricular activities or attend them,and if there is ANY misbehaver until he graduates, he should have any scholarships or grants pulled and should be suspended from public school permanently. A little harsh? Well maybe, but maybe something needs to be done to wake the parents up and make the kids think before they act so stupid.

Well done Mr. Thompson.... These issues need to be addressed quickly and with utmost importance. Bullying must never be tolerated at any level and children being bullied need to know that it can and will be dealt with. No child should suffer this fear. Blessings.
