A group of Springfield, Ohio, elementary school White students were allegedly threatened and assaulted after a group of Black students told them to say, “Black Lives Matter,” or else, according to reports.
The Springfield Police Department said an officer responded to Kenwood Elementary School just before 10:20 a.m. on Feb. 13 in reference to an incident that happened on Feb. 10.
