Family of teen stabbed with pencil files lawsuit against Colorado Springs school district

Dec 12, 2019 by

Kyle Nipper’s family is now trying to hold the school district accountable for not doing enough to prevent the bullying which led to the stabbing.

Every day Kyler Nipper, 14, wakes up and looks at his collection shoes. Rows and rows of shoes, from Uggs to Nikes, he has shoes stacked to the ceiling inside a Nevada storage unit.

“We’ve given away over 28,000 pairs of shoes,” said Nipper. “We accept used shoes, new shoes, any shoes you have in your closet.”

Kyler is giving shoes away to kids like him who couldn’t afford the coolest shoes.

“All the kids in school had Jordan’s, Adidas, New Balances, Pumas and I always wanted them,” he said. “I’m stopping what happened to me from happening to anybody else.”

What happened to Kyler almost killed him. A bully stabbed him in the chest with a sharp pencil at Carmel Middle School in Colorado Springs.
