Parents demonstrate at school where 8-year-old was bullied

Video surveillance reviewed by a homicide detective with the Cincinnati police force allegedly shows little Gabriel Taye being knocked unconscious by students at Carson Elementary School on January 24, the Cincinnati Enquirer reported on Thursday.

The district released copies of a choppy 24-minute-long video that shows one boy bullying other students and then, according to the mother's attorneys, pushing Gabriel into a wall when he tried to shake the boy's hand and knocking him unconscious.

Carson Elementary School assistant principal Jeff McKenzie reportedly found Gabe unconscious in the bathroom and took him to the school nurse.

WXIX-TV reports that the mother of the boy, a third-grade student at Carson Elementary School, hired attorney Jennifer Branch to find out what happened before her son took his own life on January 26. "During our investigation we learned that the Cincinnati police detective found video recording of the child two days before he died".

Now his mother, through an attorney, is questioning whether his school handled the situation properly.

Now, the mother wants answers as to why this all happened.

"I guess he didn't know how to tell me stuff was happening", Reynolds said. The coroner's spokesman said Friday that Sammarco wasn't available for comment.

The minutes pass, with Gabriel's body alone on the floor until, finally, a child summons a school administrator to the restroom and the man tends to the boy.

"I witnessed behavior that in my belief is bullying and could even rise to the level of criminal assault", if not for their ages, a police detective said, according to that report.

"There is concern that there was more violence going on in that school", Branch said.

Judge to hear arguments on bid to erase Hernandez conviction
Due to a "binding precedent " Garsh said a legal doctrine calls for erasing convictions when the defendant dies. The issue is relevant because Lloyd's mother has brought a wrongful death suit against Hernandez's estate.

However school spokeswoman Janet Walsh said previously Carson Elementary had zero reports of bullying in the August-December term.

Two days later, Gabriel was dead, having taken his own life.

But when school officials called the boy's mother, they allegedly gave her a much different story - and simply told her "that he fainted". She also stated that Reynolds took Gabriel to the hospital that night for what she assumed was the stomach flu after he complained of stomach pain.

The Hamilton County coroner said she is reopening the investigation into Gabriel's suicide.

Another concerned parent, Carolyn Emery, said she has a 9-year-old daughter who attends Carson and that bullying is s chronic problem there.

Cincinnati schools on Friday released choppy footage from a hallway security camera of the interaction, blurring out students' faces to protect their privacy.

The district's statement Friday followed release of the video showing Gabriel Taye being bullied and falling to the floor unconscious.

He had no signs of any medical or mental health issues, and was an "adorable" and "happy-go-lucky" child. She picked up her son and took him home but did not take him to the hospital until he reported feeling sick to his stomach later that day. She said she has seen a lot of bullying at the school and doesn't think it will get any better.

"There needs to be a lot more response in that school to what is going on and the parents need to know what's going on".
