Special needs child gets abused with racial slurs and more

This is just sickening.

This video shows the shocking torment suffered by a 10-year-old boy on his way to school.

For 40 minutes Cequan Haskins was abused by a pair of 15-year-old bullies in May 2011.

They called him names, made sexual and racial slurs and held a scorching cigarette lighter to his skin.

In the chilling footage Cequan can be heard screaming and pleading with the bullies to stop but they are relentless, clambering over seats to get at him.

They are visibly much larger than their victim and he is unable to get away from them as they yell at him to 'sit down and shut your mouth'.


'My son, he was a special needs child and he didn't deserve this. He was entitled to a safe transportation just like any other child in the Appomattox County Public School System.'

Cequan was left with physical and emotional scars in the aftermath of his ordeal, Ms Haskins said.

He continues to suffer from post traumatic stress disorder and has undergone hours of therapy.

Both of the teens involved were found guilty of disorderly conduct, assault and battery.

Ms Haskins has launched a civil case against the Appomattox County School Board and is awaiting a trial date.
