People don't just become assholes when they reach adulthood.  Maybe Levi Null is a dick who needs to be punched in the head.
 
2013-11-20 04:35:55 PM
unsolicited cock in the mouth?
 
2013-11-20 04:39:33 PM
Wait, is Cole the name of the kid, or an unintentionally capitalized and misspelled word?

There's a huge difference between "my nephew cold-cocked him in the mouth" vs. "my nephew Cole cocked him in the mouth"
 
2013-11-20 04:41:41 PM
That article discombobumalates my dumb cracker mind.

"Cocked" him in the mouth? Two people named Levi? One guy named Nate Goof?
 
2013-11-20 04:48:16 PM
Sometimes a special child needs to be reminded that he ain't THAT special.
 
2013-11-20 04:55:41 PM
Sometimes kids just need a good cocking, and other need to cock. Glad to see it all worked out.
 
2013-11-20 05:02:06 PM
Because being called a name is a good reason to punch someone... great parenting.  I'm sure this is the message that they get in Church.

"I would say three-fourths of this stuff he brings on himself and probably a fourth of it is bullying that shouldn't be going on," said Levi Weatherly, father of the teen accused of posting the video online.

The kid brings it on himself by acting all retarded!

1.  Aspergers.  Yes, it's a form of autism, but it's not like the kid is silently rocking in the corner.

2. "Aspergers" is quite often shorthand for "my kid is socially awkward, but I don't like to think he's anything but a precious snowflake, so let's make it Not His Fault and not require him to learn social norms".

3.  If the kid is mainstream enough to be in classes with normal kids, then he's mainstream enough to be held responsible for his actions.  If you think he should be removed from the environment, then you have to admit your kid is a tard.  You can't have it both ways.

even if that kid is an ass or is a tard, Cole cocking him in the mouth because he says some shiat isn't appropriate behavior. I think. Really, I'm not sure what Cole cocking is. We should track down Nate Goof and ask him.

Shouldn't that be "clocked"?

"Cocked" has a different connotation entirely.

Is the term "coldcocked" (in the sense that one is sucker-punched) not a thing outside of where I grew up?
 
2013-11-20 05:58:23 PM
This headline has me all confused.  It's either "cold-cocked", "Cole clocked", but NOT "Cole cocked", unless the nephew did something VERY DIFFERENT than punch him.

Respond with a witty retort, bully boy. Oh, let me guess that's not your strong suit.
 
2013-11-20 06:02:23 PM
n a video interview with the station, Principal Josh Ehn actually said it is the students' responsibility to handle cases of bullying. "We try our best to educate our staff, to educate our students to react to the cases, to investigate the cases we have," Ehn said. "But ultimately, it's got to come down to the kids to take ownership for this and to stand up for the kids who can't stand up for themselves."

/So in other words Principal Jackass, you are saying that it's ok that a kid with aspergers is taunted and bullied by other kids, even when it happens in front of you? That you are perfectly comfortable with letting the kids decide how far to go? And you and your staff wont step in? Wow. You Sir, are a complete jackass. What is your exact purpose there? To get a paycheck?

What was the name?  I'm pretty sure that there are some ethnic/racial/sexual orientation slurs that even Aspergers kids know they shouldn't say.  If this Cole was say, African American, and called a n***er, or openly gay and called a f****t, I'm pretty sure no one would have a problem with him punching this kid in the mouth, no matter how "special" he is.  And this probably wasn't the first, second, or even fifth time this kid has mouthed off.  I don't know about the rest of it, but, the punch in the mouth sounds like it was probably earned.

No, I think the poor kid got cocked by Cole. He probably shouldn't have dressed that way or it wouldn't have happened.

I have Asperger's and I agree with all of this. But punching someone just because they're an asshole isn't allowed, either.

There's an Urban Dictionary definition for cole cock.  From back in February.  It's about what you would expect.

Tragically, it's the way all too many people behave. Unless of course the mean name caller is bigger than they are. Or they have a gun handy.

Actually it is.  It isn't separated from Autism Spectrum anymore, that is all.  It is now a notch on the spectrum instead of something that is treated as a different disorder.

Don't knock him in the head.

He might have Aspergers now, but once he finishes school he'll just be another mouth-breathing dipshiat.

You might as well let him get used to it.

Bullying is completely unacceptable. OTOH, I have seen many people that are considered 'special needs' to purposely get away with outrageous and unacceptable behavior because they could.
 
2013-11-20 06:09:52 PM
Two things:

1) If everyone is already taunting the kid why punch him when he talks back? You're already winning the insult race, getting offended when he slings some back is lame.

2) They admit seventy-five percent of the time the kid brings it on himself. Meaning one out of four abuses is unprovoked predation.

"The kid was a jerk," is a valid excuse in some cases. Here it just sounds like a town inhabited entirely by jerks.

If I was in charge of a school my response to a bully would be suspension for the first offense and expulsion for the second. And any teachers who turn a blind eye to bullying would be dismissed.

It's true, but parents and teachers shouldn't be condoning it, I guess is my point. At least not publicly. They're just telling kids it's fine to hit people you don't like.

OR- maybe he doesn't belong in class with a bunch of 13 year old boys who aren't going to be very capable of understanding the nuance of a peer who can't control his behavior vs one who simply does not want to control his behavior. Maybe the boy with the issues should be segregated so the normal children can learn in a less disruptive environment.

"He called my nephew a nasty name, and my nephew Cole cocked (sic) him in the mouth," resident Jamie Harrison wrote to the station. "I'm proud of my nephew for doing that."

So this guy is proud that his nephew beat up a handicapped kid. I guess he thought taking candy from babies was too easy for him and his glad he stepped up his game.

This towns water supply must be contaminated with lead.

/And the last time I ever heard somebody use the term cocked to mean punch was when I was in Mississippi visiting relatives when I was a child.

The family of a teen with autism ... say bullies are targeting the boy and even posting videos of his reactions to medications online.
"People tell me to run into things and I don't really like it. And I tell them that I don't want to and they just laugh at me, whenever I do it," says 13-year old Levi Null who has been bullied for years.
 ...
But now his classmates are ramping up the bullying, posting videos of Levi online using school issued computers. "They're hitting him upside his head. You know, smacking him


Null reference exception.

Seriously though, why do you have special needs children in normal school classrooms?
 
2013-11-20 06:16:12 PM
Everything I needed to know about dealing with bullies was taught to me by Bill Waterson.  I've lost track how many times a 'bully' would only counter with such amazing wit like "you farking...fark!"
