Mother of Black 12-year-old boy who had police called on him during virtual learning for playing with a toy gun speaks out

A Black seventh grader from Colorado had the police called to his house for playing with a toy gun during virtual art class. His mom, Dani Elliott, believes that if anyone did anything wrong, it was the school, and she says they don’t understand the severity of their actions. “I could have been easily burying my son today,” she said. “I could be planning a funeral for my son because of their negligent actions.”
