A gay Atlanta high school teen who has been the constant victim of bullying now has injuries to back up his story.
Tim Jefferson, 16, says he and his other gay friend were dipping out of class when they were ganged up on by a mob of homophobic students where one even stabbed him in the face with a screwdriver.
To make matters worse, the principal and other members of the faculty allegedly witnessed the entire incident and did nothing to stop it.
CBS46 obtained exclusive video of what Carver School of Technology students described as a five-round fight with punches being thrown by about 20 students at one point, all because classmates hurled racial and homophobic slurs at two students.
During the fight, Jefferson said one student even pulled out a screwdriver and jammed it in his face, right next to his eye. Jefferson said he has several injuries.
“My face, my eye, my lip, on my back, my spine right in the middle, the back of my neck and I got hit in the back of my head,” Jefferson said.
Jefferson’s mom, Sabrina Giles, said this is about the eighth time this year that her son and his friend were attacked because of their sexuality so she’s transferring him to another school.
Jefferson hoped to teach the bullies a lesson of their own.
“I’m going to press charges. I want some justice. If God willing, I’m going to get justice and I want the boys who did this to go to jail,” Jefferson said.
The Atlanta Police Department managed to round up four students and charge them in the fight.
