Video released showing 8-year-old boy who committed suicide getting bullied by his classmates

8-year-old Gabriel Taye committed suicide last Friday, after he was knocked unconscious by his classmates (read here). New surveillance footage has just been released to show the moment his classmates slammed him into a bathroom wall, knocking him unconscious for over seven minutes. While Gabe lay unconscious, his classmates can be seen kicking and prodding his unconscious body before school staff came much later to attend to him.

School authorities initially claimed that Gabriel fainted but after the boy's mother accused the school of covering up the attack which occurred on January 24th, the CCTV footage had to be reviewed and was released by the Cincinnati Public School system.

See the sad video below.

For seven minutes the school authority couldn't report. Such school is unworthy of existence. RIP poor boy

These kids are gonna be a future menace to the society, either they send them to juvi or they all get "mistakenly" killed. I don't get why kids who are supposed to be innocent and kind will do such a horrible thing. What is the world turning to? Then their sorry ass parents that are void of good example will say "they are just kids they didn't know what they were doing". Do these kids look like they don't know what their doing. And black peeps will be shouting racism up and down when yet they still act savage.

What a shame. Please please pay attention and teach your child to be more resilient.
How bad can things get to commit suicide and the parents couldn't pick up any signs?
I suspect it was a spur of the moment decision in a desperate child.
We need to get closer to our kids to prevent such tragedies.
May his soul rest in peace.
