Luther, OK (The Oklahoman) — A teenage girl who was stabbed at Luther High School last week told investigators the boy accused of stabbing her had repeatedly tried to start a romantic relationship with her.
About 8:15 a.m. on Aug. 16, students were gathered for an assembly in the school’s auditorium when a 14-year-old boy stood up and repeatedly stabbed a 14-year-old girl. The boy and the victim were friends, but Luther police Chief David Randall said the boy wanted a relationship.
“There was one point where he approached her in reference… to try to have some type of relationship, to which she said she wasn’t interested in it,” Randall said the victim told him during an interview earlier this week.
Teretha Wilson and McArthur Bryant raise their 10-year-old son Tamarion to call their elders “ma’am” and “sir,” but that politeness got the fifth grader in trouble from a teacher at his preparatory school.
The North Carolina parents told ABC-13 that they had Tamarion moved to a different classroom at North East Carolina Preparatory School in Tarboro after his teacher punished him for calling her “ma’am.”
Tamarion had returned from school on Tuesday with a punishment he had to have signed by his parents. He went on to explain that he had continued to repeatedly call his teacher “ma’am” despite her requests not to, and was told to write the word “ma’am” written on a piece of paper four times per line on both sides as a penalty.
“He had a look on his face of disappointment, shame,” Bryant told ABC-13. “At the end of the day as a father, to feel kind of responsible for that…knowing that I have been raising him and doing the best that I can, it’s not acceptable.”
Wilson went on to explain that Tamarion had recently been in the hospital for seizure-related activity, and had been suffering from memory loss and hallucinations.
Adding to their anger was how the teacher allegedly told Tamarion during the encounter that “if she had something, she would have thrown it at him” — which the parents said the teacher admitted when they met with her and the principal the next day.
“It wasn’t right,” Wilson told to ABC-13. “It wasn’t professional. As a teacher, it wasn’t appropriate.”
Reps for North East Carolina Preparatory School did not immediately respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment, but told ABC-13 in a statement, “This is a personnel matter which has been handled appropriately by the K-7 principal.”
Coming up at 4:30 and 6 on @ABC11_WTVD: Parents of a Tarboro 5th grader are upset after their son got in trouble for calling a teacher “ma’am” against her wishes. In response, they say the teacher made him write the word repeatedly on a sheet of paper
Though Tamarion will moving to a different classroom, Bryant is warning other parents of this sort of behavior. “If it happened to my son, I’m pretty sure if not a week, a day, a month, a year, it will occur to somebody else’s child,” he said.
And as for Tamarion’s punishment, it was returned to the teacher, signed as promised — but with a second sheet of paper attached, the family said: Tamarion, writing the definition of the word “ma’am.”
Harris County prosecutors believe the man, 29-year-old Nicholas D’Agostino, was acting out of hatred for women and female drivers, citing several hate-filled social media posts.
“He rants and rambles about female motorists and how incompetent they are, and how their sole purpose in life is to give birth to male children,” a Harris County prosecutor said in court late Thursday, local news outlet KHOU 11 reported.

A young Victorian family has lost everything in a house fire after a four-year-old boy lit a piece of paper on the stove.
The mum and dad were cooking dinner at the Narina Way home, in Epping, last night when they stepped outside for a cigarette just after 10pm.
That’s when their young son used the kitchen stove to light a piece of paper on fire.
A former Homeland Security Investigations special agent raped a woman twice, sexually assaulted another and told the victims police would never believe them if they reported him because of his law enforcement position, federal prosecutors alleged.
John Jacobs Olivas, 43, of Riverside, California, was arrested Wednesday and pleaded not guilty in
a U.S. District Court hearing the same afternoon. The crimes took place in 2012, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Los Angeles.
A federal grand jury indictment alleges that Olivas, who resigned in 2015, raped a victim twice, in September 2012 and November 2012, and tried to rape another in January 2012. The document alleges he told the second victim that “police would not be responsive” if she tried to report him.
ALTENA, Germany — When you ask locals why Dirk Denkhaus, a young firefighter trainee who had been considered neither dangerous nor political, broke into the attic of a refugee group house and tried to set it on fire, they will list the familiar issues.
This small riverside town is shrinking and its economy declining, they say, leaving young people bored and disillusioned. Though most here supported the mayor’s decision to accept an extra allotment of refugees, some found the influx disorienting. Fringe politics are on the rise.

A Republican candidate for the Florida Legislature apologized Monday for saying she had a college degree that she didn’t complete, but said she will stay in the race “and lead by example from now on.”
Melissa Howard last week posted a photo of herself with what looked like a Miami University diploma after being accused of lying about her degree. The Ohio university later sent reporters a statement saying she attended the school, but never graduated and the diploma Howard posted has inaccuracies.
Howard posted an apology on her campaign Facebook page and admitted she didn’t graduate from the school.
“I made a mistake in saying that I completed my degree. What I did was wrong and set a bad example for someone seeking public service. I am staying in the race and intend to win and lead by example from now on,” she said.
Even if she dropped out, it’s too late to get her name off the ballot ahead of the Aug. 28 primary. Vote by mail ballots were sent out a month ago. The seat represents portions of Manatee and Sarasota counties, where about 20,000 Republican votes have already been cast.
While some have taken to social media to say Howard should drop out, local party officials say the matter should be left to voters.
“We should just let nature take its course. Let the voters decided if they want her to win the primary,” said Manatee County Republican committeewoman Peggy Simone.
In her statement, Howard said, “It was not my intent to deceive or mislead anyone.” It didn’t say what her intent was.
Her primary opponent, Tommy Gregory, didn’t immediately respond to requests for comment.
An 11-year-old girl who was suspected of stealing food from a Cincinnati supermarket was tased by an off-duty police officer on Monday night.
The girl, who was suspected of stealing items from a Kroger store, was shocked with a Taser stun gun after she allegedly ignored an officer and started to walk away, Cincinnati police said in a statement.
“It hit my back real fast and then I stopped, then I fell and I was shaking and I couldn’t really breathe,” the girl, Donesha Gowdy, told NBC News in an interview alongside her mother. “It’s just like you’re passing out but you’re shaking.”
The fourth-grader said that she did not try to fight the officer and that she was not aggressive toward him.
The officer who stunned the child was identified as Kevin Brown, 55, in court documents. Police said he was working off-duty as a security guard.
Cincinnati police department procedure says officers should avoid using tasers on children under 7 or on people over 70.
“I’m not saying what she did was cool, I’m not saying that, but what he did was totally wrong,” the girl’s mom, Donna Gowdy, told NBC News.”Whoever thought of these rules needs to step back and think. I’m not just worried bout my own [child]. I’m not trying to see any kid get done like that.”
The procedure also states that “an individual simply fleeing from an officer, absent additional justification, does not warrant the use of the TASER.”
“We are extremely concerned when force is used by one of our officers on a child of this age,” Cincinnati Police Chief Eliot K. Isaac said in the statement. “As a result we will be taking a very thorough review of our policies as it relates to using force on juveniles as well as the propriety of the officers’ actions.”
Donesha was charged with theft and obstructing official business. She was taken to a children’s hospital after the incident and eventually released to one of her parents, according to the police statement.
“We are saddened by this situation,” a spokesperson for Kroger said in a statement. “Nothing is more important to us than the safety of our customers and associates. Our thoughts are with the family and child.”
Joseph Blaettler, a retired deputy chief of police in New Jersey with 30 years of experience, told NBC News that the incident appears to be an “unreasonable” use of force.
“Use of force comes down to what’s reasonable and what’s not reasonable. So it comes down to what the officer was facing,” said Blaettler. “Generally speaking, tasing an 11-year-old, in my opinion, would be unreasonable.”
Brown tried to turn on his body camera but it did not do so immediately, only providing footage from after the incident, police said, according to NBC affiliate WLWT. Brown has been placed on restricted duty, the station reported.
An investigation has been opened by Vice Mayor Christopher Smitherman, according to the station.
The girl’s mother noted that the officer didn’t know how old her daughter was or if she had a condition, like asthma, that could have resulted in a serious health emergency.
“I told my daughter: ‘I hope you learn from this. You risked your life over some candy,'” Donna Gowdy said.
ST. LOUIS – The St. Louis Circuit Attorney said she’s reopening the criminal investigation into a St. Louis Police officer accused of rape.
It’s fallout from an ongoing 5 On Your Side I-Team investigation into how some police use their jobs to pressure women for sex.
For Michelle Roesch, the year 2008 wasn’t easy.
So she got help from two St. Louis Metro police officers who were also brothers. Roesch said they called her ex, and got him to back off.
“I thought they were protecting me,” said Roesch.
But later that evening, things took a turn for the worse.
Roesch was living in a top floor apartment in south St. Louis. Below her lived the cousin of those two cops. And that night, that cousin decided to have a party.
While sitting next to one of the brothers, who was in his uniform, Roesch said he started doing something strange.
“He started checking me for needle marks. He took his hands and skimmed id down my arms, legs and feet, tried to get me to take off my shirt. I was like, ‘I’m not a drug addict,'” said Roesch.
Then she says the 6-foot-plus cop pulled her into a bathroom.
“He started with forcing himself on me,” said Roesch. “He was pulling out my hair, punching me in the face.”
Roesch said then the police officer raped her.
She also said she felt like she had no way out.
“He had the gun right there the whole time,” said Roesch.
She eventually arrived at a hospital with a swollen upper lip, bruising around her nose and the back of her neck, and with pain in her genital area.
One problem: Roesch had just started her period, so a rape kit wasn’t possible.
But even without that, her medical records show she was diagnosed as a victim of sexual assault, with a recommendation that Roesch report it. She did, according to an incident report.
“I was fearful, fearful of retaliation with police,” said Roesch.
So she filed a restraining order against the officer, stating that he had raped her and hit her. The cop signed and agreed to it.
Then she said she reported the incident to police internal affairs.
But Roesch said the circuit attorney’s office eventually gave her bad news.
“They looked at me and said ‘He’s not going to be charged.’ I said ‘Did I say something wrong, did I do something wrong? What’s going to happen when he does it again?'” said Roesch.
Roesch said she just folded into herself and stayed that way for years.
“Everybody kept telling me about #MeToo,” said Roesch.
Inspired, she said she made a decision. She began protesting outside St. Louis police headquarters with a picket sign and a bullhorn, calling out her alleged rapist.
“I did use his name, but I also had checked with law enforcement. It was my First-Amendment right,” said Roesch.
But shortly after the protests began, Roesch was hit with a restraining order. It was a type of protective order that can be easily gotten without a hearing.
In this case, it had been filed by the officer she accused of raping her. It said Roesch could no longer mention him on social media or during her protests.
She was stunned.
“I had never had one before this,” said Roesch.
But it opened the floodgates.
Soon the officer’s brother and his wife filed for and got the same sort of order.
Then, people from St. Louis and Indiana also received orders of protection against Roesch. They’re people Roesch says she’s never even meet.
At one point, Roesch had twelve restraining orders against her.
And soon, someone claimed that she violated one of the orders. Police arrested her and charged her with a felony.
“My reaction was just horror,” said Chelsea Merta, Roesch’s attorney.
Merta took a close look at the orders filed against Roesch. Her conclusion: “They’re frivolous. They filed these orders to silence her to keep her from sharing her story.”
So Merta took Roesch’s case and started getting hearings before actual judges.
Earlier this month, in St. Louis County court, Merta and Roesch were ready to face off with her accused rapist, his brother and his wife, who had all filed orders of protection against her.
“We’re doing all three at one time. So everyone’s testimony will be all at once,” said Merta of the hearing.
But in the end, none of them showed up for court and the judge revoked their orders against Roesch.
Outside the courtroom, Roesch was tearfully grateful.
“I am speaking out on behalf of all of the rape victims,” said Roesch.
But she was also defiant.
“I also want to add you’re not above the law and you can’t and will not silence me anymore.”
Since then, Merta has gotten nearly all of the other protective orders against Roesch thrown out in court. But Roesch still faces felony charges for supposedly violating some of those restraining orders.
In the meantime, the lawyer for the accused officer tells us her client was previously cleared of any allegations and had even passed a lie detector test.
“Good children’s fiction cultivates empathy, imagination, social conscience, and historical awareness. Some of the best children’s novels written during the early twentieth century also raise class consciousness—Natalie Savage Carson’s The Family Under the Bridge, for example; socialist E. Nesbit’s Railway Children, Eleanor Estes’s The Hundred Dresses, and the original Mary Poppins books, which are wonderfully critical of capitalism and give magical superpowers to a nanny and her working-class friends.
While the politics of these older books hold up well, it’s hard to miss how very white the characters are. Fortunately, a new wave of multicultural, politically attuned children’s fiction is now hitting the shelves. Thanks in part to a movement called “We Need Diverse Books,” many new novels for middle graders and young adults include more people of color, gay and lesbian characters, ethnic and religious minorities, and the differently abled.”
