Live Boston 617 is reporting that BPD was called to Boston Latin Academy on Monday morning for a stabbing. A video was also obtained by the LB617 Team that shows a brawl in the hallways of the  Townsend Street BPS school.  Warning – the video is graphic and disturbing.

From “someone in the know” – a student was in fact slashed on the hand with a pair of scissors and suffered non-life-threatening injuries – no confirmation yet whether this recorded fight in the hallway is related or if they are separate incidents.

This news comes less than a week since Boston Public Schools district leaders were presented with some school safety recommendations as part of a report by the Council of Great City Schools including:’

  • Consideration of BPS forming an internal, sworn police department
  • Designing a process for Boston Police and BPS to share information
  • Speeding up the recruitment of hiring safety specialists
  • Creating an anonymous reporting hotline

Boston Latin Academy Responds:

City Councilors Erin Murphy, Ed Flynn, Frank Baker and Michael Flaherty respond:

    The jive ass doing the filming and narrating should be expelled for starters. How can a fight go on in a school that long without any intervention?

      I’m not sure what you mean. There are two schools – one is Boston Latin School and the other is Boston Latin Academy
