Description

We exposed how the Paradise Valley Unified School District worked hard to keep the sexual assault of a special needs student hidden from parents and students and worked to protect their own teachers when they failed to properly chaperone the Pinnacle High School Homecoming dance. During the course of my investigation into that I discovered a nugget of information in a police document. Then I asked if any of the surveillance cameras were working at Pinnacle High School. The answer was shocking, no. Then I was asked repeatedly not to disclose it to the public. We did what was in the best interest of student and staff safety. We forced their hand when they admitted they do not work and then proceeded to attack us for our reporting. https://youtu.be/0S5niegxyXA http://legacy.12news.com/story/news/local/valley/2016/02/05/feds-investigate-wake-alleged-rape-pinnacle-hs/79902264/
