A seven-year-old in Colorado was severely beat by classmates, but the school didn't do anything about it.
Desmond Guilford was playing on the playground at school when a group of kids approached him and told him they were about to beat him in three seconds, reported KDVR News.
“They like ran after me and said 'Get him','" Desmond told the TV station. “Then I ran and then I ran more faster, then one of them like tackled me."
Desmond's face hit the concrete and he now has bloody bruises across his face.
"When I saw him, my heart dropped," Kevin Guildford, Desmond's father, said.
But Kevin says the school claims Desmond only fell on his own and hasn't done anything to hold the kids who allegedly beat the boy accountable.
Aurora Public Schools issued a statement saying: "Student safety is a top priority in Aurora Public Schools. We take this report seriously and are investigating fully. We can assure you that we will take appropriate disciplinary action, but due to privacy laws we cannot discuss specifics. Our goal is to provide a safe learning environment for all of our students."
Kevin has since taken his son out of the school, but worries that the same thing could happen to another student.
“The thing is this has to stop for other kids,” Kevin told 9 News. “I told my son, if we let this go and we just move you when what's going to happen when the next family goes there and sees the happy pictures on the wall and they feel comfortable sending their kid up to the school.”
