The federal lawsuit says the school failed to prevent the bullying and attacks despite many incidents happening in front of football coaches and other officials at Dietrich High School
Three teens have been charged in the Oct. 23 rape, which took place after one of the victim's football teammates pretended to give him a hug, according to the lawsuit. Instead, the player held him down so 17-year-old Tanner Ward and 18-year-old John Howard could assault him with a clothes hanger.
In August, football players and coaches encircled the victim and Howard as part of a "toughening up" program that involved nighttime fistfights, the lawsuit says. The victim wore boxing gloves, while Howard fought bare-fisted. The coaches are accused of promoting the fight that eventually knocked the victim unconscious as students called out racial epithets.

Looks like the lunatics are watching the asylum...disgraceful...
This is called hazing...poor attempt to legitimize this whole bathroom agenda issue..
“Mr. Howard is a relative of prominent individuals in the community and, at least in part due to his athletic ability and community connections, the Defendants ignored or were deliberately indifferent to the behavior of Mr. Howard which included aggression, taunting and bullying of The Plaintiff and other students in the District. With deliberate indifference, the Defendants did nothing to curb the vicious acts of Mr. Howard who brought with him from Texas a culture of racial hatred towards the Plaintiff.”

Predominantly white town of 334 people and kids capable of that level of violence learn it from somewhere.
