Osman Daramy, 6th grader, charged with hate crime: pulling off girl’s hijab

A 12-year-old boy in Staten Island, NY has been charged with a felony hate crime after he attacked a female, Muslim classmate and tried to rip off her hijab.

Osman Daramy was reportedly led off school grounds in handcuffs on Wednesday after he allegedly punched and kicked a young 13-year-old Muslim girl. After striking her, Daramy attempted to remove the girl’s hijab, or head covering, while some say he yelled, “Are you a Muslim?”

He failed.

Daramy is no model student…this according to the NY POST

On Monday, Osman raised hell in one class when he ran amok wielding scissors after using them to cruelly lop off a girl’s hair, sources said. But instead of being booted from school or arrested, Osman was merely “suspended in-house,” a teacher said.

Osman’s behavior is so problematic that officials at one point posted a school safety agent in front of that class just “so the teacher could teach,” a staffer said.

Two weeks ago, Osman was present when five other young punks at the school robbed a deliveryman who was dropping off pizza and soda at an after-school study program, insiders said.

The crooks demanded food and cash from the deliveryman before fleeing with just the food, authorities said. They were busted the next day.

“This child is a terror. He goes around terrorizing staff and students,” a teacher at the school told the Post.

His mother tells the Post, “I know my son is a good boy. He’s a kid, he made a mistake. It’s not right for him to bug anybody for their religion.”
