Texas school district hid sexual assault of 6-year-old

Students at a Plainview, TX Elementary School won’t be going to class on Monday. The South Elementary School is being closed temporarily due to teachers claiming to feel threatened.


Why, you might wonder, would they feel that way?

Perhaps it has something to do with the fact that the School administrators, teachers, and School District officials were covering up the fact that a first-grade student was forced to perform a sexual act on another student IN CLASS and the act was recorded on an iPad.

The iPad was seized, the “inappropriate” recording was viewed by the adults, child services investigated, and the incident was swept under the rug. It wasn’t until the little girl had recurring nightmares and refused to go to school that her parents got involved and began protesting the school.

Nobody had told them what happened to their daughter.

It wasn’t until her parents organized others to join them in protest that the district admitted something happened.

Then the facts came out. We are hearing about it this week, but it took place in mid-April. Because the district covered it up. They even left the students who abused the girl to remain in the same classroom.


Everything about the incident is revolting. That it happened. That it was tolerated. That the School Superintendent said he did everything that was required by law. That they stonewalled. And that not one damn person at the school seemed to care a whit about a young girl getting abused.

Everybody was watching their own ass; nobody cared about the child. Now the Superintendent says he hopes he can work together with the parents so they can find a way to move forward.

Let’s hope not. “Work together?” How about resigning in shame and leaving the state?

Is it any wonder that people have threatened violence if such a thing happened? Parents across the district are rightly angry as hell, and clearly, nobody in charge has given them any other path to justice in this situation.

I am not a fan of vigilante justice, but vigilante justice is the inevitable result of refusing to even pursue any other kind. The state shouldn’t exist to defend malefactors, but the innocent. It is failing its duty–it has chosen the wrong side all too often.

The district did nothing until the girl’s parents forced them to even acknowledge that it happened. Can you imagine?

“Everything was ‘no comment. I cannot tell you. No comment,’” Gonzales said. “So, you mean to tell me abuse has been happening for a week and a half and these kids are still at the same desk. My cousin is still at a desk with all boys, having to see her abusers every day.”

Plainview ISD Superintendent H.T. Sanchez commented on the district’s response.

He said when the content was found on a school device the day after the incident happened, a report was made and CPS was contacted.

A state investigator then started working with local law enforcement and arrived in Plainview the next week.

“He had asked that we hold confidentiality because he wanted to be sure that he was able to get the full story from each of the students, the minors, that were involved,” Sanchez said. “All of the steps that we’re required to take, we took.


Bureaucrats followed the rules, and the rules are designed not for the benefit of the children but for those same bureaucrats.

Disgusting cowards. I am shocked that it has taken this long for the community to rise up in arms.

They are “investigating” the incident still. They have a video of it. They know what was done, and at least some of the people who did it. They are children and should be treated as such, but the adults should get no mercy. Tarred, feathered, and exiled. They likely violated no law but those of God and Mercy, but that is hardly an excuse for the callous behavior.

That the parents should have to worm the story out of a traumatized child is bad enough; that the school district stonewalled is worse; that the “educators” evince no remorse makes them evil. Have they no soul?

This reminds one of the Uvalde police, who not only failed in their duty but failed in taking responsibility. That every one of them didn’t resign in shame is shocking to me.

Adults are charged with defending children, not themselves. It isn’t just a moral duty, but it should be an ingrained response, especially for those to whose care the children are entrusted.

Yet it has come to this. We are told that we should hand over our self-defense to the police, and yet they fail too often. We are told that educators know better than parents what is good for children, but they can’t even respond to a sexual assault on a 6-year-old.


They protect themselves while demanding that we defer to their superior judgment.
