was taken by juvenile delinquents. One reader wrote the attacks were taped and then reposted on on TikTok, Instagram and other social media, such as Snapchat.  “They used postings as sort of trophies. I know kids who refuse to come forward out of fear. The list is long.”

After running the photo of the kid who was knocked out and left unconscious, several kids wrote CTN defending the attacks. One said that the kid was drunk and passed out.

Yet, another said, the photo was taken two years ago and the kid laying there was unhurt and just laying down in the grass after playing basketball, another wrote “Bro got his shit rocked.”

Another student wrote, “he was sparring. They were all boxers, they do not beat up random kids.” When CTN didn’t post the comment, the student wrote, “Stop censoring me.”

With the photo of the kid holding a knife, one student wrote “The kid supposedly holding a knife is not true it is not a knife it is a bottle of sparkling water by the name of ice. . ..This is not okay it looks like you have only covered half of this story and its one sided get the other side of the STORY!”

The knife was verified by several people.

Parents said the victimization of teens has gone unabated since last summer and the kids doing the beatings have not been held accountable.

Under the Executive Director’s report “Community Collaboration to Address Behavior Incidents on the Board” agenda Pam Magee wrote:

Reports of aggressive behavior involving students in the community have been reported to school officials. PCHS administrators are working with law enforcement to identify offenders and in some cases issue citations, notify parents, counsel students, and assign consequences when appropriate. Training for students in strategies targeting de-escalation and conflict resolution will be provided when school resumes after Spring Break.

PCHS continues to provide a variety of student support including Peer Mediation, mental health resources and counseling, and Schoology behavior intervention courses focused on a variety of topics including substance abuse cessation and anger management. In addition, we are reaching out local schools and agencies to form collaborative partnerships focused on addressing current concerns and preventing future occurrences.

Senior Lead Officer Brian Espin wrote: “Due to the recent activity regarding juvenile behavior in Pacific Palisades, we would like to host a community meeting to disseminate and share information to dispel any rumors and clarify what actions have been taken and what we can facilitate for the future.”

    At last! Thank you, Sue, for your frequent reporting of and leadership on this problem!!
    I always wonder how parents of the ‘kid-criminals’ react to reports of their behavior. That would never be made public, but I suspect “deny” and “minimize” take top prizes. And threats of lawsuits for character assassination would be right up there. Their kids are recidivists. And selfies or posses’ photos are sometimes run in CTN. PROTECT YOURSELF, PLEASE. We would rather not do without you.
