Florida 13-year-old speaks out after being arrested, falsely accused of threatening school violence

Letting down others can lead us into trouble. It is always better to sort the issue face to face by talking peacefully and if not, just simply ignore the matter and the individual but don’t play dirty games. 

According to a recent complaint, a 13-year-old Florida girl spent over seven days in a juvenile prison facility after a classmate claimed to be the tormented adolescent on Instagram and threatened their school. Nia Whims’ family has filed a lawsuit against the Renaissance Charter School at Pines in Miami over the incident that resulted in her detention for 11 days. 

According to the lawsuit, which also names Instagram and its parent company, Meta, the seventh-grader was tormented and arranged a meeting with school administrators. 

However, since the meeting did not take place, Nia’s mother, Lezlie-Ann Davis, chose to withdraw her daughter from the Pembroke Pines school because the bullying continued. 

According to the family’s lawsuit, a former classmate reportedly created a phoney Instagram account using Nia’s identity and sent herself messages that included dangers to explode the school and murder others. 

M.S., the ex-classmate, emailed the dangers to herself and a teacher, who reported the incident to school administration and police enforcement, resulting in the facility being placed on restricted lockdown. 

M.S. is said to have implicated Nia, who was detained while denied issuing any dangers. 

According to the lawsuit, she was transported to a juvenile detention institution on a felony charge of making a written threat to inflict physical harm or perform an act of terrorism and was compelled to undergo a psychiatric assessment. 

She was detained for 11 days before being freed after detectives found that M.S. had sent the threatening messages. 

“The Pembroke Pines Police Department’s failure to immediately investigate this easily discoverable evidence led (Nia Whims) to languish in a juvenile detention facility away from her family for eleven days,” according to the lawsuit. 

A judge who dismissed the charges asked the kid whether she had any questions for the judge? Further the judge told her to accept his/her apologies since she had to go through this and wished her the best. Nia simply said it’s ok. 

Her mother, on the other hand, stated that the family intends to bring those involved accountable. 

“They need to make sure they do their homework before handcuffing and locking up our children,” said the family’s attorney, Marwan Porter. “That medium, Instagram, was utilised to frame Nia,” Porter remarked. Police claimed the family did not help with the investigation until December, when Davis gave data that led them to subpoena an IP address associated with the texts. 

However, the family stated that they provided detectives with the iPad that Nia had used to communicate with M.S. on the day she was detained. 

The other girl has been charged with multiple felonies, including making written threats to murder or cause physical damage and faking a police report. 

“Our primary concern is the safety and security of our children,” Renaissance Charter School said in a statement. 

“We have always taken and will continue to take all required procedures to protect the safety of our kids and employees.” We are unable to discuss private student matters, and we do not remark on current litigation,” a representative noted. 

According to the complaint, Meta, Instagram’s parent company, reportedly refused to “promptly furnish or comply with the investigating authorities,” resulting in a delay in clearing Nia. A Meta rep didn’t quickly return a solicitation for input. 

“It was sad because everyone assumed it was me,” Nia. 

Share this story to remind each one of us that bullying is not right. Hope it will be a lesson for all.
