Police told a father to delete an online video of his son being attacked in the hallway of Scott High School in Taylor Mill City, Kentucky. The man’s son was allegedly attacked by a fellow student who believed him to be a racist. {snip}

{snip} The Taylor Mill Police Department (TMPD) said it was notified of the assault on the same day and is investigating. {snip}

The video, recorded at a distance by a third person, shows the attacker running up to another male student from behind, punching him in the back of the head and throwing him to the ground. The attacker then swears at the other student before punching him in the face and straddling his chest to rain more blows upon him.

As the beatdown continues, a female teacher wearing a skirt repeatedly yells, “Stop!” {snip}  A male teacher eventually pulls the attacker off of his victim.


The father of the assaulted student uploaded the video to social media. However, he said that the TMPD told him to take it down while they investigate.


The assailant was allegedly told by some of his friends that the victim was part of a class “full of racists,” {snip}
