Teen Bullied In Cell Phone Video Speaks Out
WILKINSBURG (KDKA) — Two brothers are now being charged in connection with a fight that was recorded inside a local school bathroom.
But police are still looking for two other people who were in the bathroom while the brutal beating happened.
“I just want them removed from school. I want them to go to Schuman Center. I want them to feel what it is like to be bullied.”
That’s what 13-year-old Aisa Whitfield told KDKA’s Brenda Waters Friday afternoon from his home.
The seventh grade student at Wilkinsburg Middle School is talking about the teens who allegedly beat him up in a boy’s bathroom on Thursday afternoon.
As the attack was going on, another boy recorded it with his cell phone. The video was then posted on Facebook.
In the video, you can see that at no time did Aisa fight back, saying he did not want to. He just wanted to get away from a beating that continued to the cafeteria.
Aisa’s mother, Nickcole Whitfield, says her son was bullied long before Thursday afternoon, and if school officials had listened to her, perhaps the fight would have never happened.
She says the problems have always been with the same boys.
Meanwhile, two brothers, ages 13 and 14, have been charged with assault, conspiracy and unlawful restraint. Both were taken to Schuman Center.
Police are also looking for two other boys who were in that bathroom.
But the superintendent of the Wilkinsburg School District says: “There is a lot more happening in this investigation.”
Exactly what more will come out, the superintendent isn’t revealing just yet.
