Raven-Symoné believes the student who was assaulted at Spring Valley High is responsible for the abuse she encountered. During a recent episode of “After The View,” the cast discussed the assault where a White sheriff dragged a student across the room.
Raven-Symoné mentioned the officer’s past arrest and then blamed the student for the assault by saying, “He has a record, and he’s still hired. But at the same time, get off yo phone. You are in school, get off yo phone. What you doin’ on Instagram? The girl was told multiple times to get off the phone. There’s no right or reason for him to be doing this type of harm, that’s ridiculous. But at the same time, you gotta follow the rules in school. First of all, why are there cell phones in school. This shouldn’t even be a problem to begin with, and he shouldn’t have been acting like that on top of it.”
Raven-Symoné continues to prove that she’s out of touch with reality when it comes to most issues. But instead of making this a problem about discipline or crime, it should be looked at from a psychological standpoint.
The teenage girl could be facing issues of abuse at home that’s causing her to withdraw from the social aspects of school and rebel. Regardless of the issue, there is likely a problem that should be addressed by a child therapist instead of an inept sheriff.
Raven-Symoné’s comments comes after CNN’s Don Lemon was blasted by Sunny Hostin for have a wait-and-see approach when referring to the assault.
