The boy deserved suspension. Period. But put suspension in perspective. A couple days isn't the end of the world. Schools use what intimidation practices they can to keep kids and parents in control. In the bigger picture, it doesn't matter. It means nothing in the long run.

The only connection he would make with the non-punishment of the bullying and the punishment of the urinating would be because of the mother pointing it out. Because the bullying wasn't punished, doesn't mean it's ok to urinate on the playground. Making an issue of that thinking is what sends the wrong message. It's telling him that because he was bullied, he doesn't deserve punishment for urinating outside. One has nothing to do with the other.
