A Jacksonville, Florida, mother is outraged after she says that her 7-year-old son’s elementary school forced him to walk home through a crime ridden area.
He reportedly went to the school’s office because he knew that his aunt was going to be late picking him up. However, a teacher told him to walk home rather than stay there. His mother called the school when he did not show up, and they said that they did not know where he was.
She immediately went to go and find the door, but he arrived at the house before she was able to leave, saying that he walked for about an hour. The 2 1/2 mile area that he walked through reportedly had 23 assaults, 10 thefts, and a homicide just in the past week.
