Last Thursday an 18 year old student named Hart Sligh used a pen to stab the principal of St. Casmir’s, a Worcester Alternative School for students with frequent behavioral problems, repeatedly in the face. Sligh has since been arrested and is charged with assault and battery with a dangerous weapon.

Here’s what we know about the background for this incident:

  • On Wednesday September 2 the student told a Latina teacher that “whitey is keeping me down.” He seemed genuinely upset with all white people and took out his aggression on principal Michael O’Neil by stabbing him in the face with a pen. The incident occurred before the first period of the day had even begun.
  • Clearly the attack was racially motivated, as this student is buying into the Gordon Davis, RBG, black lives matter rhetoric that imaginary white supremacy and white privilege is keeping kids like Hart Slight down. Not their own person choices.
  • Nothing prompted the attack. The attack was premeditated and happened before the school day had even begun.
  • Another teacher named Guy Angers attempted to stop the student but was also assaulted (punched several times including in the face). He sustained a shoulder injury while doing so.

So why are you just hearing about this now? That’s the best part about this – Melinda Boone tried covering it up. After the principal was assaulted not one person form the DAB, including Boone, decided it was worth even making a phone call to the school. St. Casimir’s is considered a Worcester Public School and Melinda Boone is their boss.

Now that it’s gone public Melinda Boone finally released a statement yesterday that the student will be subject to “appropriate disciplinary processes” and those authorized by state laws. Funny how it took over a week and a media expose for Boone to let the public and the school committee know about this. Wonder why. Oh yea, because stuff like this makes her look bad, screws up her charts, and goes against the narrative and the lies being fed to us by Joe Petty and Boone that our schools are safe. They are not.

Here’s my question – where was Jen Roy on this one? I mean, Melinda Boone literally created her job out of thin air in order to have a “communications specialist” between the DAB and the public. Where was the communication on this one? Why did it take a media report a week after the incident in order for them to even acknowledge that a principal of a school was stabbed in the face?

The student of course is out on personal recognizance, because judges in this state adhere to the same hugs and rainbows philosophy that Boone and Petty do. But if someone was stabbed in the face while shopping at the store or walking down the street, would they be released like this? Nope.

But because it happened inside a school it basically doesn’t count. That’s the mentality of the establishment. Crimes in school aren’t really crimes. It’s the same reason why the hippies were so opposed to having cops in the schools. Because they want them to be halls of lawlessness so that Melinda Boone can look good and Joyce McNickles won’t whine about the “school to prison pipeline.”


According to a teacher at St. Casmir’s that we interviewed, “Boone is a murderer of human spirit. She has caused more damage than she’s worth.”

Well, if that isn’t an acknowledgement of confidence in your boss than I don’t know what is!! But then again Melinda Boone has proven that she could give a fuck less about the opinions of teachers. It’s the reason she never once answered questions from North High teachers last year but still gave Brenda Jenkins, Joyce McOldBalls and Keesha LaTulippe a private anti-cop meeting.

Look, over here in grown up world your job performance can be tied to the confidence you instill in your employees. Look at Bobby Valentine. Dude was terrible because the players all thought he was an asshole, they didn’t play for him, and the public demanded that he be fired. Melinda Boone is the exact same type of leader. Her employees have no confidence in her but instead of being fired Tracy Novick and Joe Petty voted to give her a brand new three year contract.

Here’s my question – why are we forcing this kid to be in school if he doesn’t want to be? Here’s a Facebook post from last year:

Cool. You’re 17 and don’t wanna go to school? Sounds good to me. Saves us all the time and money and it keeps the schools safer. See ya later! But no, we can’t do that. Because Melinda Boone has to improve her 4 year graduation rate. After all, one of the main reasons she was given a new contract, and her go to defense in general, is that SHE has improved the graduation rate from 55% to 71%.

Here’s what she told Worcester Magazine last year while she was campaigning for a new contract from the school committee:

These rates show that we are moving in the right direction,” School Superintendent Melinda Boone says. “While I think it is appropriate to take a moment to recognize the efforts of our students and staff, these data show that there is more hard work in front of us. We must continue to provide our young people with the supports they need so that they graduate on time and are prepared for their lives after high school. We will not rest.”

Rates, data, graduate on time. These are hack buzzwords 101. Well how do you think she’s improving these rates? She’s doing it by ignoring safety concerns and keeping dangerous 18 year old students in schools who have made it clear that they do not want to be there.

This quote right here sums up the fantasy world she is living in:

“I believe that all children can learn and all have a right to a high quality education. Children will meet whatever bar we set for them…if we set the bar of high expectations, they will rise to the occasion. Our role as adults is to ensure that we provide these high quality opportunities for students and that we support their attempts to be successful.”

How fucking STUPID do you have to be to think that ALL students will meet whatever bar you set for them? How naive can you possibly be if you think that all students will “rise to the occasion?” Either she’s stupid or she’s full of shit. Probably the latter. Because people who get to where Boone is now don’t get there by telling the truth. They don’t become superintendents by saying “some kids are unreachable and should be removed from schools because they’re a danger to everyone else.”

But that’s the truth. Does she really expect us to believe that these are the words of a student who will “rise to the occasion?

Yea, FuCc probation. Shit’s wack. The kid doesn’t wanna be there, plus he’s already got a job:

Screen Shot 2015-09-09 at 11.58.03 PM

So why force him to go to an environment every day in which he feels the need to violently stab the first “whitey” he sees that is “keeping him down?” Let him do what he wants to do instead:

Screen Shot 2015-09-09 at 11.58.55 PM

This is America. When an 18 year old man doesn’t want to be in school, we shouldn’t be forcing him to be there. This is the REAL story behind Melinda Boone’s charts that she and Jen Roy aren’t telling you.

The bottom line is Boone MUST go. The good news is we 100% have control of this in November at the polls. Five of the seven current members of the school committee (Petty, Novick, Hilda Ramirez, John Monfredo, Jack Foley) voted for Boone’s new contract and stand by her despiteher massive public failures and incompetence. Here’s what SC member John Monfredo said about her:

Dr. Boone and her staff continue to move our school system forward and our school district continues to have the reputation as one of the best urban systems in Massachusetts.

Our reputation in Worcester is as one of the best in the state? Did I just read that right? This is Melinda Boone’s BOSS!!! Let that sink in for a minute. And he was elected to office. Monfredo, like Joe Petty’s campaign manager Paul Giorgio writes for Providence resident Josh Fenton at GoLocalWorcester. Apparently he enjoys employing people who have been previously accused of sexual indecency with minors.

All five of them have steadfastly opposed police in schools as well. Your duty as a Worcester taxpayer is to vote ALL of them out. We implore you to vote for Nicola D’Andrea, Donna Colorio, Brian O’Connell, and Diana Biancheria for school committee. We also implore you to vote for Michael Gaffney for mayor, since the mayor is also the chairman of the SC.

The 5,084 people who voted for Joe Petty the other day said with their vote that they support a man who supports a woman who created a system that enabled this 18 year old man to stab a principal in the face. Make no doubt about it – if you stand with Joe Petty then you stand directly against the safety of the students, principals, and teachers of the Worcester Public Schools. You can tell yourself that Joe Petty is a good guy and the city and schools are safe. You can choose to believe the lie that the media is exaggerating all of this and making up stories. You can choose to believe that these are isolated incidents. But clearly time and time again we have seen that Joe Petty is a dirty, filthy liar who will tell you whatever he thinks sounds good in order to win re-election. This is borderline criminal. Don’t let him get away with it.

More people need to be aware of this, as clearly the preliminary election showed us that 5,084 people aren’t getting the message. Share the crap out of this blog and take your city and school’s back.

    North High a remarkable 52%graduate in four years. Refreshing to know Worcester may have better schools than Springfield or Brockton.

    Mrs. Bineda from South warned the superintendent last year about allowing this stuff to go on and turning a blind eye to it. She reminded her of Jerome Johnson getting killed at South in 89, and I was a senior at South at the time and was there during and after . Was a very tragic day . She was told by Dr. Boone to “get over it”. Tells you all you need to know about Boone!!!

      Am I correct that Maureen Binienda tried to keep the kids from wearing hooded sweatshirts in school but this was overturned by Melinda Boone? She needs to focus on her budget and let the principals run their own schools

    Like I’ve said in the past…. This low life criminal…. We’ll call him Mr Sleigh. Was a cute 10 or 11 year old boy seven years ago when Obama and Erick Holder came into the picture and over that time period this young shit head has consistently been told that “the man” is out to get him. Now look what these ass holes have created, a generation of young black men who think the cards are stacked against them…. Good work Obama!

    I have a feeling this losser kid will be doing a stretch up state soon enough and working on some tear inside the jail. He looks like he’s about as smart as a donkey actually I won’t give him thatt much credit

    Every district in the state seems to be proud of its graduation rate, but few note that the state started using
    a new formula to calculate the rate several years ago. Even if you focus on the four-year graduation rate,
    you should realize that the numbers are self reported and never audited.

    Where can we look up the charges against a sub-adult? Was the jerk really just released? Even for a violent and in TB’s opinion “racially-motivated” assault? Something’s not adding up here.

      In MA, when you turn “17” you are officially an “ADULT” as far as the courts and the law goes,
      this punk jerk can and should go to Walpole for this felony, “assault with a deadly weapon”.
      Melinda Boone is telling the “other punks” it’s ok to do this, but not if your white !!

    Dr. Boone and her staff continue to move our school system forward and our school district continues to have the reputation as one of the best urban systems in Massachusetts.

    Umm…there are only 3 real cities in Massachusetts. I don’t know what the criteria is for considering something an “urban system”, but there can’t be more than, what, a dozen in Massachusetts? Being “one of the best” of an extremely small number isn’t particularly impressive.

    • Dude
      September 10, 2015 at 1:37 pm

      There are 42 official cities in MA (I don’t know how many of those would be considered “urban”). So, saying Worcester is one of the best out of 42 cities is actually pretty good.

      I didn’t think this claim carried too much weight till I looked at some of the other cities rankings. She is probably right with that particular claim. The vast majority of “good” school systems are all towns. Worcester had to beat out the likes of Brockton, Southbridge, Gardner, Fitchburg, Lowell, Pittsfield, and Lynn (just to name a few) to get up on the rankings.

      • RJ
        September 10, 2015 at 2:42 pm

        See, that’s what I was saying. Southbridge is a city (technically by government structure), but nobody would consider Soutbridge an “urban area”

        • Dude
          September 10, 2015 at 3:06 pm

          I think she needs to define “urban area” better.

          • RJ
            September 10, 2015 at 3:14 pm

            I’m sure it has a really specific definition, it’s just either way too broad or way too narrow. They never nail things like that, and they can also fudge rankings that way by making enough categories or grouping them in such a way that what they’re saying doesn’t actually mean what they’re saying.

    Quoting you “When an 18 year old man doesn’t want to be in school, we shouldn’t be forcing him to be there. “. Get your facts straight. This is not a man. Just a punk thug. He will be spending two thirds of his crap life eating baloney sandwiches in various prisons. Unless we taxpayers get lucky and some other gangbanger shitbag shoots him. This POS will make homeschool a great option.
