A “race riot” broke out at Hoover High School in Glendale last week between what parents say was Armenian students on one side and black and Hispanic students on the other.
A meeting was held Monday after video posted online showed what appeared to be dozens of students involved in a melee at Hoover High School in Glendale last week.
Students involved in the fight — described by concerned parents as racially motived — were reportedly kept in separate rooms on Monday and speaking to counselors in “restorative circles.”
Police were called when the brawl broke out last Wednesday on the upper quad on campus at Hoover.
Parents told KTLA their kids say there is racial tension on campus between Armenian students — said to be the largest ethnic group in the school — and football players, who are mostly black, Latino, and other ethnicities.
[…]A screenshot of a Snapchat message shared with KTLA read “whoever it not Armenian we’re going to shoot.” Parents said that message circulated Thursday night, yet they were not informed by school administrators until Friday, one hour after classes had begun.
Hoover High School students said such violence is routine. A mass stabbing incident occurred at the school in July 2017:
Another similar riot occurred at Hartford Public High School in Hartford, Connecticut last week involving some 75 students, many of whom “stomped” on a security guard trying to break up the fights:
Another large brawl involving five students broke out last week at Sahuaro High School in Tucson, Arizona.
I wonder why none of these stories made the national media?
