Achille ISD parents plot hate crime against a preteen transgender student

achille ISD

Adults posting on the official Achille ISD Oklahoma Facebook page conspired to physically and emotionally harm a transgender 12-year-old student.

The threats ranged from making life difficult for the transgender child so ‘it wouldn’t come back’ to threats indicating a parent’s willingness to ask their children to beat up her up.

One parent commented that he had a knife with which he could stab her with.

UPDATED 8/13/2018
The family of the transgender child has been traumatized to the point that they now fear for their lives. They haven’t been living at home.
Achille ISD will be closed until Wednesday for ‘safety concerns’.

Kevin Lee Bickerstaff, age 58 of Ada, suggested, “Just tell the kids to kick it's ass in the bathroom and it won’t want to come back!”

Jay Standifer added to the thread, “Seth Shelbie Cooper sounds like we are going to have to get a case of beer and a big ass fan to get him and his dad smoked off Bernie Crenshaw.” [

Eddie Belcher, age 79 of Broken Arrow, said, “If he wants to be a female make him a female. A good sharp knife will do the job really quick."

Gina Segraves refers to the child as "thing" in one post, while clearly not having seen herself in a mirror lately. In the intro area to her Facebook, Segraves refers to herself as a "bitch".

Seth Cooper said, “Let Parker [son of Burney and Jaime Crenshaw] whip his ass until he quits coming to school.”

The Bible-thumping Eddie Alford McCroskey II, age 43, of 35136 Pleasant Valley Rd in Wister, OK has a felony record that includes child abuse by injury, transporting a loaded firearm, and possession of a firearm while under supervision. The divorced man is currently engaged to Melissa Lycklama of Broken Bow. It will be the Bible quoter’s third marriage in eight years.

Ty Andrew Hays, who refers to the child as a maggot, has a criminal record for assault and battery in the presence of a minor in Custer County. Hays, age 42, resides in McLean, Texas and is married to Lacey Hays. Hays, who is native to Weatherford, OK, has had protective orders filed against him by a former wife. He currently has an outstanding warrant in Blaine County for failure to have insurance..

Jacky Billy Upton, age 35 of Stigler, shared with Jamie Blanchett a meme implying that, if you went into the wrong bathroom, you'd need to use the handicapped stall.

Jamie Crenshaw (middle) began the hatefest by posting a warning in the Achille ISD Parent Group on Facebook. accusing the transgender 12 year old of 'looking over the tops of bathroom stalls".

The Achille ISD (Independent School District) Facebook page is a personal profile which can only be accessed by a friend request. But concerned individuals with access to the Achille ISD facebook profile shared screenshots of the egregious comments with Hate Trackers which published them on their website.

Hate Trackers reported that on Friday, August 10, 2018, an emergency protective order was filed against Burney Crenshaw in Bryan County Court by the mother of the transgender child. Crenshaw appears to be heading the group of adults trying to do harm to this child.

Understandably, the transgender student and family are currently asking for confidentiality. They live just north of the Red River area where Texas AG Keneth Paxton went for a transgender bathroom lawsuit by a crony Texas ISD superintendent.

Someone using a Yahoo email address contacted Dare James via his website possibly committing a felony by impersonating a police officer.

You may remember the delightful Seth Shelbie Cooper. He messaged Hate Trackers Dare James making a threat on behalf of himself and Burney.

The Achille Police Department has no website and calls to a number listed on Google went unanswered.

NewsOK is reporting that Superintendent Rick Beene said he could not talk specifically about the targeted student, but told The Oklahoman the school takes the social media comments seriously.

“Achille schools and administration take the safety of every student very serious,” Beene said in a statement he read over the phone. “Private discussions held on the social media do not reflect the views of Achille school, staff, administration or school board. Achille school believe everyone should receive a safe and free education. We have a very talented staff that cares about each and every student.”

Another school official, who was not authorized to speak for the district, told The Oklahoman the district has been in contact with local law enforcement concerning the matter.

Concerned parties can contact the Achille Elementary School by calling principal Lora Stanglin at (580) 283-3002 or emailing her at

The Achille ISD superintendent Rick Beene can be reached at (580) 283-3775 or by emailing

It only took a few days for this to get national attention. One of the better news reports to date.

    These “parents” need to either a) be locked up (Half of those parents…Why aren’t they locked up?) or b) have their children removed from the school. I know that sounds harsh removing their children from the school. They don’t seem to get it. Until it affects them personally, they wont get it.

    Charges should be filed against all these people.
