‘Serial Bully’ Banned From All Schools After She Beats Up Classmate & Videotapes It (VIDEO)

by Kiri Blakeley 5 hours ago

A judge has decided that one 14-year-old girl in Jacksonville, Florida isnot fit for any of the schools in that county. Not because she's a genius. And not because she has disabilities. But because she's allegedly an inveterate bully. The eighth grader allegedly lured classmate Aria Jewett off school grounds and then attacked her while 30 students stood around watching. The fight was videotaped. Aria suffered a fractured skull. The attacker girl was arrested. Aria's parents asked for an injunction to keep the girl out of Aria's school but the judgment surprised even them. The judge declared that the girl was too much of a danger for her to be in any of the public schools in the entire county.

Said Florida Circuit Court Judge Henry Davis in his ruling:

This child is a threat to all of the children at any school. The injunction is a permanent injunction barring this child from returning to any public school in Duval County.

Seems like a common sense approach, but the school's superintendent actually disagrees. The superintendent, Nikolai Vitti, says:

I don't think we should use the bad decision that children make outside of school as an example or scapegoat to make a message.

He reportedly went on to say that education is a constitutional right, and that even a girl who smashes another girl's head and videotapes it deserves one. The unnamed girl already has a lawyer and the lawyer is trying to return her to county public schools.

This shows you just about everything that is wrong with schools (and parenting) these days. Students are living in fear of kids like this bullying girl, and yet what appears to be more important to the girl's parents and the school's superintendent is that she gets her education! Never mind that the education system had failed her so far. Perhaps it was teaching her math and science, but it certainly wasn't teaching her empathy or humanity. I think she needs a different school -- the school of Hard Knocks.

I don't mean like the hard knocks she gave Aria, that fractured her skull and could have killed her. I mean the school that says if you screw up, you pay for it. And if you screw up repeatedly -- as allegedly this girl had numerous videotaped beatings to her name -- then you pay royally. And that means maybe your parents -- who seem more concerned about hiring you a lawyer than teaching you how to behave -- have to move away or home school you. Sounds like instead of spending money on a lawyer, they could have bought their daughter a tutor and a lifetime supply of anger management classes. I wonder if Vitti would be fine sending a daughter of his into a classroom with this girl?

Do you think this girl should be allowed back in schools?

Do you think she should be allowed back in to school?

Myself, no.

Nor do I agree with the statement that school failed to teach her empathy and humanity.  While schools, or some of the teachers and admin, can certainly teach a child along these lines by their own actions, it is not the school responsibility to 'teach' these things.  There is no class designated for this.  This should be taught, and shown, at home.

Hell no she shouldn't be allowed in school with other kids.

That judge isn't saying she CAN'T get an education, he is saying that she can't go to the public schools. Her parents could home school the little thug or put the money for that lawyer to privet school.

Quoting UpSheRises:

She has the right to and education...asshole or not.

Yes, I agree.

However, that education can be obtained without attending a public school on a daily basis.

Nope...lol..i dont even want him in gen pop. My child goes to private school.

If shes such a danger, which she seems to be, she should be in jail.

She should be in juvenile detention.     I'm sure she'll get a fine education there.

I would hope that all of those who watched this found themselves in trouble as well.  

I can't comprehend the mentality that standing by, watching, recording and such is in any way acceptable.

So, I just asked my 13 year old what she would do if she saw some one beating up another person.  She said she would go find an adult.  What if there was a crowd.  She would probably see what was going on and if there was no adult there stopping it, she would go find one.

I hope she holds true to what she said should this ever come about.

Kind of how I feel about the out of control gun thugs like George Zimmerman.

She has issues, that's for sure.


She can go to school online or her parents can have her homeschooled. Her right to an education does not trump other children's right to not get their faces pounded by a thug who can not control herself.

I agree she should be in jail. where she shouldn't be is endangering other innocent children at the public school. i think there comes a point where you lose your right to an education.


Without ME there would be no awesome!

I'm not seeing much usefulness in the author of the piece, either.

I agree with the judge. He did not say has she has no right to an education, only that she too volatile to be around other children. Most school districts have teachers for home bound students.

I don't necessarily disagree... but does her right to an education supercede the rights of others to an education (one where you are free to learn without fear of being beaten)? Or can we assume that this bully has lost her right, because of her actions, in order to maintain the rights of other (innocent) children?

Is it any different than a free person having the "right" to be free, but losing that right when they break the law?
