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

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?
facts bro, i was passing by to go to class when it happened and no one even tried to stop them
Why did call it Boston Latin School?
I’m not sure what you mean. There are two schools – one is Boston Latin School and the other is Boston Latin Academy
