Congratulations, David Hogg, Parkland activists, their leftist backers and the Parkland Middle School. His death is on your hands. Schools are not supposed to be involved in supporting political protests. But if they do, they’re responsible for the safety of the children. Most of these kids don’t care about protests, they just want to be let out. And why is a sixth-grade class of 11-year-olds being let out to protest?
Via El Paso Times:
A Parkland Middle School sixth-grader who left campus during the National Student Walkout was killed when he was struck by a vehicle Friday morning on Loop 375 in Northeast El Paso, school district officials said.
The boy, who was 11 years old, was hit by a Ford F-150, which was traveling north on the loop, at 10:27 a.m., police and school district officials said.
He was taken to an area hospital, where he died at about 11:30 a.m., officials said.
The child’s name was not released by police or school officials.
However, a news release from University Medical Center of El Paso identified him as Jonathan Benko and said a memorial fund has been set up by the UMC Foundation for his family.
The news release states, “Jonathan was struck by a car this morning outside of his school, was transported to University Medical Center of El Paso and did not survive. Jonathan’s mother, Ashley, works as a Registered Nurse in UMC’s Emergency Department. His uncle, Michael Benko, is also an employee at UMC, where he works as a Respiratory Therapist.”
