The laywer for Gabriel Taye's family released a statement in response to CPS' media statement today:
Response to Cincinnati Public School’s Media Statement Regarding Carson School Video
On the eve of Mother’s Day, it is unfortunate that CPS chose to blame Gabe’s mother for not taking him to the hospital after he was injured at school. No one from CPS told Gabe’s mother that she needed to take him to the hospital. The nurse’s notes verify this. In fact, if his mother had been told that Gabe was assaulted and was unconscious for over seven minutes on the bathroom floor, she would have taken him to the hospital and not let him return to Carson. It is helpful that CPS did not deny that Carson officials withheld this vital information from Gabe’s mother.
As to whether Gabe was assaulted, we trust the opinion of a Cincinnati Police Detective.
As family’s gather this Sunday to honor Mothers across the school district, please remember Gabe’s mother, who has lost her only child.
