The police haven’t released the race or the gender of the victim who was urinated on, but multiple witnesses took online and to interviews to express their outrage about what they witnessed, stating that they saw a boys targeting a group of black girls and hurling racial slurs at them, then peeing on them.
According to The Trentonian, who conducted a few interviews with students and parents, the girl who was urinated on was black.
Lawrence Mayor Christopher Bobbitt told the Trentonian he was “deeply disturbed” by the incident that targeted African American students. He stated that the incident only involved Lawrence students, and no one from the other school, Steinert. He insisted that the incident “100 percent” only involved Lawrence, and Steinert was in no way involved.
But one of the parents they interviewed stated that the incident definitely involved Steinert students as well, according to her daughter who witnessed the incident and immidiately went to tell her mother. Her mother said one of the first words out of her daughter’s mouth was the mention of Steinert students targeting them. She said her daughter said:
“boys from Steinert were trying to piss on us.”
The mother continued:
“I said, ‘Don’t use that language, but what happened?’ She said, ‘They were peeing on us.’ I asked, ‘Like they put pee in a cup?’ And she said, ‘No, they ripped their penises out and peed.’”
According to The Trentonian, another parent posted about the incident on social media, saying:
Other students and parents also posted to social media that they witnessed black girls being peed on.
