Parents have no right terrorizing a bus load of students. There's a proper way to handle problems. I'm glad he was arrested.

But he terrorized the entire bus load of children over just a couple of kids. The innocent children didn't deserve to be terrorized by him.

I just commented on this in the politics section. The little girl has cerebral palsy & has been getting abused for over a month by a bunch of punk brats. I'd love to buy the dad a dinner & a beer!
So what if the other kids were exposed to it, they were ALSO exposed to watching a disabled child get bullied by a bunch of thugs! You can damn well be sure I won't stand by & do nothing if MY 3 year old w/ cerebral palsy is getting abused while the school does nothing!!

Sorry but... I can't really completely knock this. lol It was definitely the wrong approach, but bullying is a huge problem in schools.

Is that mother equally "effin P.O.ed" that her son is a punk bully who terrorizes a little girl?
I doubt it. Sure doesn't look like it.

Sad thing is, the brat kid didn't look shaken up at all. The bullying will probably escalate now, because on top of whatever they were bullying her and teasing her for in the first place, now she's going to be teased for having a "crazy dad."

They were bullying her because she is disabled due to cerebral palsy. They are brats that have parents that didn't bother to teach them properly, & it was left up to the father of the disabled child to educate them. These brats will likely continue to pick on the disabled, as they are being told by their parents that the man was wrong in defending his daughter.

That makes the story all the more messed up. I look back on what my mom would've done... she would've been livid to find out I was terrorizing a girl with cerebal palsy. And I'm pretty sure that after the dad was dealt with an arrested for making physical threats, her anger would no longer be focused on him. lol It would be me that would be up a crick. And we sure as heck wouldn't be on TV giving an interview to the world. My mom would be too embarrassed for anyone to see either one of us. Me the bully, her the mom of a bully.
It speaks volumes that this mother thought nothing at all of going on TV with her son, as if he was a "victim" in all this. Nothing's going to happen to that kid. At least no consequence will come from his parents, that's obvious.
