Livonia student out of school after allegedly threatening to kill Black people in video, officials say

An eighth-grade Livonia Public Schools student who allegedly posted a video that is circulating on social media threatening to kill Black people while he held a gun is no longer in school and was visited by police at home, school officials said on Friday.

The nine-second video shows the Emerson Middle School student holding a handgun and saying: “I am ready for the n——. Gonna kill them now because I want a lawsuit right now mother——.”

As he speaks, the student adds a magazine to the weapon and racks the slide as if to load the weapon. A Confederate flag hangs on a wall behind him.

Livonia police Lt. Charles Lister said his department was notified of the Snapchat video on Dec. 23 and made a visit to the child’s home that day.
