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

On January 26, two days after the altercation, Taye hung himself with a necktie from his bunk bed.

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.

For five minutes, Gabriel lay there unconscious as students stepped over his body, pointing, mocking, nudging and kicking him, until an assistant principal entered the bathroom and found him, according to the detective's description.

School officials did not notify her that her son was assaulted or unconscious - they simply told her he had fainted, the family's lawyer, Jennifer L. Branch, told The Washington Post.

"As we learn things, it's been hard to share them with (Reynolds) because her response is, 'if I had only known, " she said. Walsh released a school system statement expressing concern over the delay at Carson Elementary of adults in responding to the 8-year-old child, who the statement identified as Gabriel Taye.

'I just feel like enough is not being done, and I feel like stuff is being swept under the rug, ' Reynolds said. Branch said she discovered the video through the police report, which describes the footage as "alarming" and "bullying". Karaguleff had said that it showed "bullying bordering on criminal assault", at least if not for the age of the perpetrators. When his mother asked him what happened at school the day he was bullied, he said he didn't know, her attorneys said. Third-grader Gabriel Taye took his own life in January.

"Hanford made more than 20 million pieces of uranium metal fuel for nine nuclear reactors along the Columbia River". Jay Inslee said the Department of Energy and The White House reached out to his office after the incident.

Branch said the video shows a student slam him against a bathroom wall, but her client was told by the school only that her son had "fainted".

Cincinnati schools on Friday released choppy footage from a hallway security camera of the interaction, blurring out students' faces to protect their privacy. She said she doubts she would change the manner of Gabriel's death but might add other contributing factors to the case file. They said Reynolds decided herself to pick him up from school and that she didn't take him to the hospital until her sister, who was baby-sitting while Reynolds was at work, called to say Gabriel had vomited and was complaining of stomach pains. Also Thursday, Hamilton County Coroner Lakshmi Sammarco announced that her office is reopening the investigation into the child's death. A coroner has asked Cincinnati police to treat the suicide "as a homicide until proven otherwise".

The aggressor hit another boy in the stomach, "sending him to the floor in all fours" and threatened another.

"She's devastated that her son's second-to-last day was so painful for him", Branch said. "I feel robbed. My only child, my best friend and my first true love isn't here with us physically but I know he's here in spirit", she said.

The family's attorney, Carla Leader, describes Gabriel as a "happy-go-lucky kid" who displayed no signs of mental issues. He was sent to the nurse's office, then taken home by his mother.

The school spokeswoman says the school had zero reports of bulling that year before the incident.
