San Diego Police Investigating Fight At Lincoln High School

GUESTS:

Vernon Moore, Office of Youth Advocacy, San Diego Unified School District

Tasha Williamson, director of the center for community cohesion, National Conflict Resolution Center

Emmanuel Iheke, senior, Lincoln High School

Transcript for audioclip 27960

On Monday classes at Lincoln High School were suspended to give students a chance to share their feelings following a brawl that took place on campus Friday. The fight led five students and a campus security officer to be taken to the hospital.

Lincoln High School senior Emmanuel Iheke said the social media reactions to the fight unfairly depicted students there as thugs and gang members. He challenged anyone who passed judgement on the incident to “experience southeast San Diego as a whole before we jump to conclusions.”

The San Diego Police Department is investigating what happened.

“Two arrests have been made for the assault on the School Police Officer and more arrests are expected in the near future,” according to a police department press release published Monday night. “Video evidence have been reviewed and once the investigation is completed, it, along with all evidence will be turned over to the District Attorney’s Office for review.”

KPBS media partner 10News reported one of the students arrested is the son of San Diego rapper Brandon Duncan who goes by the name “Tiny Doo.” Duncan made headlines in 2015 after he was jailed on a gang conspiracy charge over his rap lyrics. A judge tossed the case out. Duncan said he plans to meet with San Diego Unified Superintendent Cindy Marten to get his son cleared.

The American Civil Liberties Union of San Diego and Imperial Counties released a statement Saturday saying the incident requires investigation into multiple issues, including answering the question, “What is the proper role, if any, of school police officers?”
