School Volunteer attacks 3rd grader with a hammer

OAKLAND, Calif. ? 

Students said they were scared when they saw the police arrive at Lafayette Elementary School Friday morning.

 

An Oakland Unified School District spokesman told KTVU that a third grade student was outside on the playground about 10:40 Friday morning. They say a parent volunteer lured the girl into a nearby bathroom and then the woman allegedly assaulted the nine-year-old with a hammer.

The district says a security guard and a teacher walked in during the attack and called police.

 

A district spokesman Troy Flint says the woman was identified as Haseemah Diame. Diame was arrested on charges of assault with a deadly weapon. School officials say she likely did not have difficulty getting on campus because she was not a stranger but a parent, who was well-known at the school and was a frequent volunteer.

 

The girl was taken to Children's Hospital in Oakland. Other children who were playing nearby say they were scared.

 

"I just saw the police come into the boys bathroom and one of the kids I was playing with they said somebody came into the school," said Tracy Logan, a third-grade student who told KTVU that teachers ushered the children into classrooms.

 

Investigators are still trying to figure out a motive. District officials say it appears the woman did have a connection with the student's family.

 

"It may have something to do with rivalries and feuds that occur off campus spilling over onto the site," Flint told KTVU Friday after district officials met with staff at the elementary school.

 

The school supervisor sent a letter home with children Friday saying she was "outraged" and "in disbelief." She also wrote, "The child is incredibly resilient and is conscious and communicating despite her ordeal."

 

"That is very scary. I mean, if I were here and I see a lady with a hammer...I'd have taken my daughter right away," said Antoinette Badio, a parent.

 

"Why would somebody come and assault a little kid at school. it makes you afraid to send your kid to school cause it makes you feel like it's not safe for them to go to school," said another parent Christopher Slaughter.

 

School officials say the alleged attacker Diame could face additional charges. The district plans to have extra staffing at the school next week and discuss with the Lafayette students and parents how to assist the victim and her family.

The ###### is wrong with people these days?

 

Let me guess, the woman was an avid player of violent video games as well?

Guns don't kill people.  People kill people.

No, guns help, and guns do all the killing. Try to kill 10 people with a hammer. isn't as easy.

 

there is a topic to discuss this. Lets keep this related to this article, nothing to do with guns.

In a 2012 mass murder in San Francisco 5 people were taken out with a hammer. They were also used in several Chinese mass killings. The recent mass killer in California killed his roomies with several weapons. including a machete and hammer.

Mass killers are the problem, not the implements. You can adapt most anything into an effective killing implement. Hell, a crooked stick (atlatl) can throw arrows 200-300 meters.

That's oakland for yea. Seriously, it is one of the most dangerous cities in California. Another article also mentions that the attacker and victim were both immigrants from Yemen.

Pretty quiet now that DocM has spoken (as it usually is). Anything is a weapon, and my father in-law was stabbed in the heart last month and died, by a knife.

Sorry for your loss; however... A hammer is a tool that can be used as a weapons, whereas a knife is a weapon that can be used as a tool! :p

Iti s true, I use my KBar combat knife as a hammer (literally) when putting together furniture from Ikea. (I keep forgetting to bring my hammer from work, and I can't find a rock haha).

That's not an excuse to not have gun control.

Anyhow, this lady is an idiot and I hope she gets plenty of time to think about that in prison.

Not to derail this any more, but you do realize "more gun control" will do jack squat but make more victims for criminals, right?

This page has some good stats. It is especially awesome since only 15% of Canadians own firearms, compared to the 43% of Americans. It also shows that crimes are now committed with other weapons rather than firearms, proving that criminals exist no matter what the laws.

 

The site is obviously bias against firearms, trying to prove that there is less gun violence, while ignoring the fact that violence is still substantial.
