Muslim middle school students singled out for interrogation
Two Muslim students faced a day-long interrogation because of rumors that on of them had a gun.
In an interview with WABC, Hoda Metwally said her son was pulled out of his 8th grade social studies class at Dolan Middle School in Stamford, and questioned by the principal.
Metwally states that her son overheard two boys in a his social studies class say of another boy that he “looks like the kind of kid who would bring a gun to school.”
She said that her son talked to the bullied student, saying “they were just joking,” before telling another friend about the incident on the bus ride home that day which, Metwally claims, sparked the rumor.
According to the woman, her son and the boy the comment was made about were called into Principal Charmaine Tourse’s office.
