PRIOR LAKE (AP) - Prior Lake-Savage Area Schools administrators say the district is conducting its own investigation after the father of a black student confronted his daughter's bullies in a posting on YouTube.
Brad Knudson's YouTube video has gotten more than 260,000 hits. On the YouTube posting, Knudson plays Snapchat video of two students using a racial slur that he says was directed at his daughter. Knudson says he repeatedly tried to contact the students' parents by phone and at their home. But, when he had no luck he went to police. Knudson says the students' father eventually called him and left a racist message.
School administrators issued a statement saying racism, harassment and bullying is not tolerated. The statement says school officials have reached out to Knudson directly to offer support for his daughter.
