Monday November 14th, a video was recorded of two boy students being forced to fight in an after school program, located at Stagg Elementary School in Englewood, IL.
The Chicago police department is beginning an investigation of this recorded fight between the two boys that were forced by the supervisor of the class. This same video was posted to social media almost hitting viral.
Now in the video you don’t only just here an voice egging the fight on but forcing it to continue by locking the door, students’ say. The two boys fighting in the video are reported to be 5th and 6th graders. Gerald Jackson, one of the fighters, said that both boys were forced to fight attached with threats.
“She said if we didn’t fight, we were going to get beat up, by her,” said Gerald. Afterwards, Gerald was rushed to the hospitals from the school for having a panic attack. The schools previously addressed the incident with some parents before the video went viral. Sending out a letter in response, in part, it reads:
"The safety of your children is always our top priority. This adult is not a CPS employee and is no longer supervising after school activities at our school.”
