Union City District Schools Pay $725,000 in a Civil Rights Lawsuit

It is a shame now days that we still have racial harassment in our public schools. Parents can’t send their children to school to get an education without the fear of gangs coming on to campus and targeting them because of the color of their skin. This law suit claimed that the Union City school district ignored complaints that members of a mostly Latino gang were coming onto campuses and attacking African American students. In 2007 Vernon Eddins a student of Union City school district, was shot to death by a Latino gang. I think their civil rights were violated because their complaints were ignored for years. Union City school district should have not ignored the complaints all of these years they wouldn’t have to pay $725,000. I think the school district should have had some kind of security already in place, so anyone could not just come on to campus. It does not matter who is complaining, all of our children have the right to an education in a safe environment. As far as all gangs are concerned, they need to be sent over to Afghanistan and Iraq. They think their so bad, lets see how bad they are when their being shot back at and blown up.
