If you’ve read my book (I Am Turtleboy) or read my blogs on this topic, you know that I feel very strongly that not enough kids are suspended from public schools. But because politicians run on a platform of “every kids deserves an education,” and “abolish the school to prison pipeline,” schools are often handcuffed by the government from suspending students who are a danger to others. That’s why this headline out of North Andover was sadly unsurprising.
Yes, that’s right. The North Andover Public Schools forced a victim of sexual assault to sign a document promising to stay away from her attacker. Here’s a rundown of what happened:
- Eliezer “Eli” Tuttle was accused in April of 2018 of attempting to sexually assault a classmate. The victim wrote in a sworn affidavit (AKA After David) that he drove her down a dead end road and jumped on top of her. She told him 3-4 times to get off and had to fend him off with her knees when he didn’t take no for an answer. He drove her home and told her not to tell anyone.
- Tuttle’s case in juvenile court was continued without a finding until his 19th birthday, which means he admits to sufficient facts that a reasonable jury would convict him for, without actually pleading guilty. The benefit of a CWOF is it disappears from your record if you don’t violate the terms of your virtual probation.
- Despite this he was allowed to not only remain as a student at North Andover, but was a member of the track team.
- The 18 year old victim felt uncomfortable with him being in the same school as her but was forced to sign a “school safety plan,” which put several burdens on her, and was signed by Assistant Vice Principal Brooke Randall.
- The safety plan forces the victim to “refrain from any avoidable contact or communication with Tuttle,” including through a third party. It requires her to travel in a pattern outlined in the plan so as to avoid Tuttle in the hallways. She also is required to immediately tell school staff about any contact with Tuttle, and comes with the caveat that she will be disciplined if she violates any of those terms until they both graduate.
- The victim was too traumatized to be around Tuttle so she enrolled in night school at NAHS, which also came with stipulations. This included not being allowed to loiter by the gym because Tuttle is a member of both the track and wrestling teams which practice long after school ends.
This is everything that is wrong with public schools today, and it didn’t happen by accident. Let’s start with the fact that the victim is required to alter her life in any way, shape, or form, and face discipline if she doesn’t. High school kids are not lemmings. Their schedules change day to day. Sometimes kids need a pass to go the library to work on a project, or visit a teacher for extra help. This victim is unable to do that because the “safety plan” makes it impossible for her to be flexible.
The solution is to kick the accused rapist out of school. He admitted in court that the facts against him were sufficient. That’s really all you need to know. From that point on he has given up the right to attend North Andover High School. The victim should not have to adjust her life; he should.
It certainly didn’t hurt that he’s one of the school’s top athletes, and is still promoted on the school’s Twitter account for setting the school record in the shuttle hurdle relay.

Of course this happened largely because of an executive order signed by President Obama that keeps students like Eli Tuttle in schools:
The discipline guidance put in place under President Obama suggested schools could run afoul of federal civil rights laws if they disciplined students of color at higher rates than their peers. Federal data show black and Latino students are disciplined at higher rates than white students, and the discipline guidance said schools have an obligation to address those disparities.
Disciplinary policies, even those drafted without discriminatory intent, may also violate the federal laws if students from certain racial groups are disproportionately affected by them, an effect commonly known as “disparate impact,” the guidance says. If students of one race are sanctioned at disproportionately higher rates under a given policy, educators should be prepared to demonstrate that the disciplinary measure is “necessary to meet an important educational goal” and that they have considered alternatives, the document says.
In other words, North Andover High School was incentivized by the federal government to keep Eli Tuttle in school because he falls into the “racial groups disproportionately affected” by school suspensions.
This mandate from the federal government operates under the misguided assumption that students from marginalized groups come to school every day eager to learn, only to be suspended without cause by racist teachers and administrators. Thus the federal government had to protect their right to remain in school.
But none of the people who write educational policy in this country have ever actually worked in schools. Had they done so they would realize that students like Eli Tuttle are a danger to other students, and take away other student’s rights to an education by being in the same building. Just ask the victim:
I wasn’t sleeping or eating and my grades were going downhill. I was having nightmares. It just wasn’t me,” the victim said. “I was late to school every day because I had to hold back when he was walking into the building. Eventually, the only way for me to graduate was to go to night school.
Since her incident Eli has once again been accused of sexual assault in New Hampshire, and it’s almost the exact same story from Andover.
Eliezer Tuttle, 18 was arrested again last week for raping a New Hampshire girl twice in the same day. In New Hampshire, Tuttle is accused of raping a 17-year-old girl in the back seat of his car in two towns during the same day in February. He’s charged in Salem, New Hampshire, with two counts of aggravated felonious sexual assault (no consent), aggravated felonious sexual assault (use of force/violence), two counts of simple assault and second degree assault (strangulation). In Epping, he faces charges of aggravated felonious sexual assault, attempted aggravated felonious sexual assault, criminal restraint and two counts of simple assault.
The victim in the New Hampshire cases told Salem police on Feb. 18, the day after the alleged rapes, that she had been on a date with Tuttle, but he pulled her into the back seat of his car and forcibly had sex with her before the two could make it into a restaurant in Salem. The victim told police that Tuttle then drove her to a movie theater in Epping, where he raped her again.
The October 2017 incident involved her 15-year-old daughter, and the police report was filed the day after the incident. Tuttle was 16 at the time. He first denied to police that anything occurred, then a half-hour later said the girl initiated sex, the report reads. According to the police report supplied to The Eagle-Tribune by Crowe, the girl and a male friend were at Tuttle’s house playing video games and relaxing. Tuttle started to massage the girl over her sweatshirt and eventually slipped his hand onto her bare skin, according to the report.
The girl told police that she “continued to slap and push his hands away and tell him not to touch her.” The male friend, also in the room, announced that he was going to Dunkin Donuts and asked if anyone wanted to join him. The girl told police that she tried to send “signals” that she was uncomfortable and wanted to leave, but Tuttle pulled at her arm, making her feel like she couldn’t get up. The rape happened soon after the two were left alone, the police report states. Also according to the report, the girl felt “shocked” and “frozen” while “thinking why is he doing this?” She reported that she “didn’t want to say anything because it wouldn’t make a difference. He wouldn’t get off me.” She told police that she answered a phone call from a friend during the attack and Tuttle “kept going.”
That friend told police during an interview later that the girl sounded “out of it” and upset during the call, and that after the attack, the two met. The girl told her friend the same story she would share with police the next day. The girl said she told Tuttle “four or five times that she had to go,” according to the report, “but he would not answer her.” Eventually, the girl said she was able to get Tuttle off her in order to put her clothes back on. She told police she left the house, where the friend who had left for Dunkin Donuts picked her up. He told police during an interview included in the report that he could “see it in her face” that something was wrong. Her eyes watered as she spoke of just being raped, he states in the report.
It’s almost as if there’s a pattern here.
Stories like this are way you should be weary of any politician who uses words like “school to prison pipeline,” or cites data that suggests that schools are suspending too many students in certain groups. When they do that they’re saying that once elected they will enact laws that make it much harder for schools to appropriately discipline dangerous students for fear of the wrath of the government.

You kinda miss the point of the Obama rule.
If you are going to suspend or expel white kids then you can definitely expel or suspend black or hispanic kids.
The problem is when you suspend or expel black and hispanic kids but give white kids a free pass.
Apparently, North Andover has opted to giver EVERYONE a free pass.
So no, Tuttle was not given a pass because of his color. He was given a pass because he lives in North Andover and, I’m guessing, his parents have a ridiculous amount of money.
Given the most recent statements from his parents, I hope the legal system buries this predator for life.
First of all, contracts signed by minors are unenforceable. Secondly, the assistant principal should be fired immediately for forcing a student, one who is a victim of a sexual assault, to sign such a document. I hope the parents sue the school.
So much for looking out for the rights of women. Throws a girl under the bus to show how woke she is. This is what is wrong with our society, much of which starts with our educational system.
I heard North Andover admins was seeking advice from Andover’s Shelly Berman!
So calling the rapist one of Obama’s sons makes perfect sense here
The reason that cunts like this are out of control is because schools have not been allowed to punish their cuntish behaviour in the past.
The reason they think that they’re untouchable is because they are.
Always let off. Always have excuses made for them. No repercussions for their actions.
This fucker has “future murderer” written all over him.
Pro-rape, pro-Kavanaugh. Fight me, liberals.
The hands of the school were tied because of the shit laws in this state that protect the predator and not the victim.
How many more women need to be assaulted, raped, kidnapped, and murdered?
Happy yet, Massachusetts?
A criminal who isn’t incarcerated is a criminal that can vote so yeah, this is a pretty good arrangement.
I blame each one of these events on the girls parent(s). White, upper middle class liberal utopia not teaching their daughters and sons street smarts and to stick with your own kind. Hopefully these progressive liberal parents got their daughters implanted with iud’s before they even entered high school because you know ole eli went in every one of those girls raw. These girls were taught to welcome and embrace diversity and be extra kind and “woke”. Look where that got them.
OMG. Fuck Obama and his policies, fuck the school administrators who treat the victim like a criminal. This is disgusting. Every stupid policy can be traced back to liberals. Maga
Kid n Play’s retarded cousin.
Go to the MIAA Website and on the front feed is a notice for a conference they are sponsoring on “Teen Sexuality and Healthy Relationships.”
I wonder how this story fits in with that concept?
Oh, and the next ad is for their “Mental Health Summit.”
Can’t make this up. Makes you wonder if they are aware of what is going on at NAHS with their track arrestee.
I graduated from NAHS.
If we are being 100% honest, one must add to the report that a few yrs. ago., (circa 2009), NAHS built a $50+ MILLION brand new highschool (old one was better but I digress…)
AND a couple yrs after that, NAHS opened the doors of that new high school to many, many new citizens of Lawrence with skincolor ranging from; brown, white, black, purple, & green… to blue, yellow, red, magenta, and indigo, to turquoise, coral, Barbie pink. Etc etc. … So *LOTS* of shitty kids of all colors. (Also ☝more Athleticism than NAHS ever dreamed possible.)
A couple days or weeks after that someone spray-pained the like, marble sign to the school but I’m sure there’s no correlation whatsoever.
I’m jw WHAT TOWN this turd is from?????????
If you’re from NA, this was likely an early question in your mind too, but you won’t admit it since you prob voted for Hillary.
Victims should file a sexual harassment suit against the admins at the school.
Ms.Mann, aka, the principal, is a disgrace for putting on the onus on the victim to stay away from the creep…AS IF the victim wouldn’t do that already!
If the principal had any skills at all, she would have figured a way to get this offender out of the school and into alternative school.
I have no doubt that if this involved a gay student claiming he/she was even looked at wrong by a straight student, Ms.Mann would have said straight kid shipped to Siberia.
Sorry, should have read “Ms.Mann, the assistant principal…”
However, what the &%*# is the principal doing regarding this?
I d have to ask though…this victim’s statement makes no sense: “She reported that she “didn’t want to say anything because it wouldn’t make a difference. He wouldn’t get off me.” She told police that she answered a phone call from a friend during the attack and Tuttle “kept going.””
Eli – it is coming!
If one of the parents of the victims shot and killed this piece of garbage I honestly wonder if they would even be prosecuted.
I’m sure the liberal DA would push for an indictment but would a jury follow suit? I know if I were a juror I’d refuse to indicate anyone on this situation. I can’t be alone.
The shitlibs have coined the phrase “School To Prison Pipeline” to force kids to share a school with predators. They even get federal money for refraining from prosecuting/disciplining them.
Nicholas Cruz of Parkland fame is a famous example.
Some kids were meant to be left behind
Some kids were born to be burnt.
This is one of those kids.
I am so tired of hearing about how are poor black young men are treated, blah, blah, blah. This fucking animal is a serial rapist but its ok because he is black. WTF is wrong with this world. So sorry for all the young ladies that are truly being victimized over and over again. If this piece of shit was a white male, would he still be attending school? The assistant principal is probably fucking this star athlete..
Once again the victims pay on the count of someone’s race. We have lost that age old wisdom of common sense. I feel extremely sad for these women. They have the balls to let law enforcement and school administrators know what has happened to them. Yet they are the ones victimized further. Seeing as doing it the correct way doesn’t work perhaps eye for an eye is the solution. Prayers for the victims. Karma for the POS Rapist.
Crazy. O’Bumf**k’s stupid policy doesn’t take into account the disproportionate percentage of these scumbags being the perpetrators. And the schools have no balls. Brokeback Randall is a useless waste of administratorship; maybe someone can get her a one-on-one with Mr. Skuttle. I hope the girl’s family have a good lawyer.
OMG now we can all see why there is so much bullying going on in our schools today. If you can’t count on the school to help protect you then what do you do. This sob needs to be taught a serious lesson. I’m sure his parents are real proud of the man he’s becoming. My thoughts and prayers to the victim in this. She could not even count on help from her school!!
Why haven’t the families of these girls killed this cocksucker yet?
Somebody needs to go “Tonya Harding” on the jackass.
Here we are in The Twighlight Zone, again. In what sane universe does a sexual assault victim have to sign any document stating they have to alter their life to stay away from the perp? The cunt Healey will do nothing.
Nothing of consequence will happen to this lively young fella. He’s got a smile for everyone and always lights up the room with his laffin’ and funnin’ . He’s got a promising future if he can just focus his energy and talents on making positive choices.
Keep voting Dem, you dumb fucks.
Wouldn’t be surprised if this rapist suddenly moved to Connecticut, started claiming he wanted to identify as female, got on the girl’s outdoor track team and started to attempt to rape his team mates. Back to reality, this is shameful. How can anyone defend the actions taken by the administration at NAHS? What have they done to protect the victims? What kind of restrictions have been placed on the male student? Finally, just fuck anyone that went along with anything that ever came out of the Obama White House.
Well, thank god he’s at least a male on the male track team.
Sports build character.
The wrestling too. That’s probably how he got so good at raping.
I laughed at this. Yet you remain an enormous fucking chode
A kid I went to HS with tried to force finger a chick at a party. My friends and I played Micky the Dounce, and we invited him to a keg party in the woods the following weekend. I don’t know what happened in the woods, but he showed-up to school the following Monday in a cast with crutches.
None of us were suspended, expelled, etc.
If whites are disproportionately victimized as a result of policies designed to allow perpetrators to avoid punishment is that not disparate impact?
In a dump truck. What in the actual fuck. There are no words for this.
My daughter is 17 and if any cocksucker ever tried this he would find the bad end of a wood chipper. Exterminate these fucking assholes. Won’t be the first scum bag I’ve ever killed!
Literally given a pass because of the color of his skin. Sounds a lot like black privilege. If the ethnicities of these two were reversed there would be RIOTS. This piece of shit belongs behind bars.
Expose the fuck out of this kid, his public defender, and the school system, TB. This one needs to go national.
Except whitey doesn’t rape black women.
Honestly, NAME ONE TIME a white d00d has raped a black woman outside of a fantasy or a R. Crumb comic.
Someone needs to bash this fuckers face in. He’ll keep doing this shit until someone fucks him up good. Then if he tries it again……………… well you know eventually he’ll piss of the wrong Dad or Brother………………………
The girl had it coming. Haven’t you people read Brave New World? Gimme your tax dollars.
Send the cunt to the Big HOuse.
These stories anger me more than any others.
Pretend victims like SJWs get all the attention and act like savages. Whereas genuine victims of crime like this poor girl are actually made to feel guilty and they are forced to accommodate the fucking criminals!! Fuck I’m angry!!!
Who believes the school administrators would be walking on eggshells around this punk if he had freckles and red hair?
The public schools and their socialist indoctrination administrations are putrid cesspools beyond fixing….go private at any cost
Ps – if this happened to my daughter this asshole would find out how justice really works… he wouldn’t be running track that’s for sure
What would you do?
cut his Achilles tendons then his throat
more importantly, what would you do? like the fact that your daughter got raped by some scumbag?
What an animal. He’s going to need his track skills in prison when they try to rape him. What the school did sounds illegal. People in a position of powere made a young girl who is the victim of a crime sign something that threatens her with discipline. She is the victim of a crime and has rights that the school doesn’t get to violate. Once again another case of intimidation of a witness. This time it was committed by the school on behalf of the scumbag who tried to rape her. I hope this girls family sues the balls off of the school and that vice principal should at a minimum lose her job and not be allowed to work with children ever again. I don’t care what race anyone is. Rape and the attempt to rape is a vicious and despicable crime
I feel sorry for this girl. This is wrong and should have been handled different. My opinion only
Except that he was tried in court of law…Did you not read the blog? He received a sentence. Talk to you lawmakers. I’m not arguing it’s wrong, just that your aim is wrong
