Bully for you!

That's a positive spin on a negative word you don't hear outside an English period piece much anymore.  I say we bring it back and threaten to beat the tar out of those who refuse to adopt it and take their lunch money which we can spend on pints and congratulate each other on a job well done with a few rounds of BULLY FOR YOU!

While I'm all for giving bullies an epic beatdown, this seems like two crazy ghetto weasels fighting.
 
2014-03-07 01:55:03 PM  
Can't say that I blame the mom for doing this. If she had complained about her daughter's bullying to school officials, they wouldn't have done anything, anyway.

The Stealth Hippopotamus: I bet she'll never forget that lesson


I don't know the situation here, but supposedly a lot of bullies are themselves abused at home, and just take it out on others in school. So this kid might not think of this as a "lesson".

In my experience that's very true and really goes to the heart of the problem.

I was gonna tell at you to stop watching too many teen comedy movies, but considering the state, I'd say that's about right.

the mom isn't bad looking, so that's nice....
 
2014-03-07 02:17:46 PM  
Really, who hasn't considered taking matters into their own hands?
Many times have I felt like taking care of business when my kids get harrassed.

As it stands, especially where my son is concerned, if a kid is busting his balls, I give him all sorts of clever advice on how to go about publicly insulting said bully.  Usually something along the lines of, "Tell him his mother is a whore, and he looks like a bucket of shiat."  Doing that loudly enough, in a manner that is embarassing enough, and the bullying stops.

It's true.

If that doesn't work, throw him through a window.  I did that once.  That kid never messed with me again.
(I had a really bad temper in high school)

Short answer, no.

Long answer in the form of a rhetorical question: "Who said you could get out of your locker and remove the underwear form over your ears, Pencilneck?"
 
2014-03-07 02:22:00 PM  
Well if the school isn't going to do anything about it, pain might.

Though one time some old guy shoved one our friends off campus at lunch time and we absolutely mauled him. So you know...bring a gun too.

It's tossed around in too many of the wrong places and not enough of the right places. Bullying is everywhere and it's part of life. It probably shouldn't be, but that's the way it is.

I have been there. Closest I came was when my five year old daughter came in crying after being at the park because Jake (an older kid in the neighborhood, 8) kept throwing sand in her face and wouldn't stop,

Park was across the street and so I went to talk to Jake. He was a mouthy little punk who knew I wouldn't touch him.

"Look Jake, you need to understand that she has 3 older brothers and, while I never condone fighting, if they were to be angry because you were picking on their sister they might lose their temper and KICK YOUR FARKING ASS! If that happened I would probably punish them, but you are still lying in the dirt crying."

Wasn't particularly proud of myself, but it is what it is.

2014-03-07 02:44:02 PM  
good, a mom who lovers her kid.  12 year olds arent like what they used to be.  they have way more avenues for bullying while maintaining their halo of purity with their parents.  She seems rather well-spoken for a 12-year old talking to the news crew. FTFA: "That's why I walked to the car, because usually, if it was another mother, she'll be like, 'Oh, what's happening to my daughter. Let's fix this up." How's a 12 year old know what "usually" is from parents dealing with bullies?  Either she knows what to say to sound innocent or she knows from prior accusations what to expect from parents.  Either way, i dont trust that girl is somehow a genuine victim here.  I'm curious if a follow up shows any cyberbullying on top of these accusations.

I could be wrong too.  Im also capable of believing the other side, that crazy helicopter mom jumped to too many conclusions but based on what I read I reserve that opinion for later.
 
2014-03-07 02:44:24 PM  
When was about that age, I made a smart ass comment to my neighbor.  She came out and smacked me.  As soon as my mom came home, she came over and told me mom what I said, and I got smacked again from my mom.  When my Dad got home from work, mom told dad what happened and he smacked me too.

The lesson I learned from all that, dont be a smart ass punk kid.

Lets see a month ago a kid jumped to her death over bullying, now some mom beats up a "possible" bully. Florida really needs a Retarded tag of its own.

"Trolling" is what is abused the most. There's a section of the internet that learned of the term 1-2 years ago and now can't resist using it to describe anything and everything.

Did you see the neck on Ashley? She's a sasquatch. The kid's got back hair for farksake.
 
2014-03-07 02:48:33 PM  
I'm no fighter, but I'm pretty sure if I decided to beat up a 12 year old for bullying my son the kid would look a lot worse than a few scratches on the neck. What kind of pathetic adult can't beat the ass of a 12 year old? Not saying you should, but IF you decided to I would expect the kid to be a lot more farked up. FFS, a twelve year is what, 90 pounds? You could literally pick that up and throw it into the ground.

Also, fark bullies, I'm sad she didn't get curb stomped. Get rid of a bully and a crazy woman goes to jail, all in the same incident. Wins all around.

yeah, me too, kind of.  i watched that very scenario happen to my older brother.  he got 3 spankings in a day - one from mom, one from grandma, and one from dad when he got home from work (for saying a curse word to another kid).  i learned not to curse that day, at least not get caught doing it, haha.

I'm thinking we don't have the full video because moms attire may become disheveled during the altercation.

If you get caught and or they find the bodies.
Usually when they find a body they keep looking until they find the attacker.
The trick is to make the  body disappear.

What's most disturbing to me is the quote from the alleged bully:  "That's why I walked to the car, because usually, if it was another mother, she'll be like, 'Oh, what's happening to my daughter. Let's fix this up,'"

What that says to me is that this is a familiar scenario to her.  She knows how things "usually" go.  So at least one, probably several, other moms must of approached her about her bullying their kids.  And apparently, she learned absolutely nothing from it.

Also, for the vast majority of parents a physical altercation with your kid's bully is the desperate act of last resort.  If the girl had been respectful, kept her distance, accepted the criticism and admitted being even partially in the wrong, the parent wouldn't have taken it to the next level.  From the limited video, it looks like the testosterone laden little she-man thought that she didn't have to give her respectful attention to an adult.  That doesn't excuse the parent for what she did, thow.

Kidnapping the bully and making him vanish would work, actually.

/recommend save that option for last.

The only way to deal with a bully is a 2x4 to the back of the skull.
You just have to make sure it's not on film.

The Stealth Hippopotamus: I bet she'll never forget that lesson


It won't do anything. It will make things worse for the daughter. If this girl was really bulling the daughter, she is going to go even harder now for revenge, especially knowing now the mother can't do anything. When I was in high school these guys had called this other kid over to their car to talk to him. When he stuck his head in the window to talk to them they grabbed him and the driver hit the gas and they dragged him down the block and let him go. Well the driver and the kid that grabbed him were arrested and released to their parents, but not suspended from school, mainly because it didn't happen on school property and the judge didn't see fit to issues an order of protection. So when the kid that was dragged came back to school these guys and their friends teased him about it to the point he left school in the middle of the day and ran home crying. The next day his father came to school with him and had him point out everybody who was involved, then proceeded to start handing out ass kickings. What resulted was the father being arrested, charged and ordered to stay away from the school and people under 18, and the kid being threatened so badly that they had to pull him out of school and send him to another school. The kid couldn't even hang out outside because people were waiting to kick his ass if they saw him out.
