HUNDREDS Join Walkout At Shawnee Mission Schools After Felony Assault Charge

Racially charged social media sparked this local student solidarity movement . . . Here's the backstory:

Student organizers said as many as 1,000 students took part in the “Erase the Hate” initiative at Shawnee Mission South High School.

The peaceful demonstration is in response to video of a fight at Shawnee Mission East High School.

The video shows a white, 15-year-old student yelling an expletive at a Black classmate. The confrontation happened in a school hallway. The boy then shouted the N-word and pushed the girl. The two teenagers fought before other students appear to break up the fight.

The Johnson County District Attorney’s Office charged the 15-year-old male student with unlawfully, feloniously and knowingly causing great bodily harm to another person or disfigurement of another person.
