I'm with the mom on this one.  My son was bullied in middle school.  We talked to the teachers, the yard supervisor and the principal.  We talked to the kid's parents at a conference with the kid there. Nothing was done.  In addition to hitting him, pushing him and tearing up some of his belongings, this kid threw a farking padlock at my kid and hit him in the head with it.  Nothing was done by the school

If I had had pepper spray or ghost chili powder I would have happily rubbed in the little bastard bully's eyes.

Happily, the little farker got in trouble with the law and was sent to a troublemaker school and my son who was small at the time is now 6'4" 220 pounds.

I really think that sometimes bullies need a good asskicking from someone besides their parents. Not so popular in this day and age, but effective.

I'm not sure how I feel about this.  I'm all "YAY!  Stand up for your daughter!" but at the same time "That's not your kid, and they're just a kid".  I know, I know, kids are cruel etc etc.  I was bullied and it wasn't fun (high school too, nonetheless), but... well, now I'm rambling.

What's worse than a big bully? A little one. In elementary school I was bullied by this little shiathead and when I finally fought back I was the one who got in trouble because I was the larger kid and therefore "logically" I was the aggressor.

The time to teach a person "if you fark someone up, someone bigger might fark you up" is exactly, precisely, when they are kids, and not when they are 30 and going to prison on your and my dime.

I think that me being bullied in high school definitely helped me deal with bullying situations at work.  But I still get a bit anxious about having to stand up for myself.  But I hear ya, it doesn't always go away into adulthood.  I work with two/three bullies.

"School officials said they must first establish that there was repeated behavior and an imbalance of power to establish that bullying occurred."

The important thing is that at some point in the next 20 years, the bullying would be identified and stopped.

Yep.  At the very least, the 11 yo is probably off to middle school next year, and not their problem anymore.

I had to wait until my growth spurt to take care of my middle school bully.  He grew into a wee little man and I ... got much bigger.

My company reps a line of pepper sprays. We have enough in our sample closet to stop a post-Super Bowl riot. I've never actually used it on a living thing, but I'll admit, if my daughter was being bullied, it would cross my mind to grab the fire-extinguisher sized bear spray and burn the bully's eyeballs out.
 
2018-10-03 11:04:03 AM  
Administrators doing an investigation that's "an extensive process"? Assessing imbalance of power. And I'm guessing "establishing a pattern of behavior" means hiding behind trees and watching this kid get continuously bullied.

I don't support what the parent did but going to THESE clowns wasn't going to solve much of anything. My guess is they weren't actually doing anything and are hiding behind this "extensive process".

Aside from the bullying issue here, I think there's another thing to realize here...

The bully just got hit by some voodoo... Salt & Cayenne is supposed to be for protection, so I suppose she thought it might keep the bully away from her daughter. But it can also be used for bad luck and misfortune... I wonder how this bully is gonna fare going forward.

Of course the mother got pinched for assault, as she should have, but I just find it interesting when you read further into the story for the woman's motivations. I could be wrong and she just put together some homemade pepper spray powder, but I don't know...

"Yes."

When I started high school I was one of the smallest in my class, so I know from experience that I could fit into a locker. The kid who tormented me the first two years got expelled (ironically, the day he got kicked out they sent me to help him clean out his locker and carry his stuff out of school) and I didn't see him again until after I had graduated, and grown 6 inches. We were both with our families and when he saw me his eyes lit up briefly before noticing I was now taller than him, then started to look a little scared. It's been 40 years and I still hope to run into him again.  I never got over it.

Same here. Used to be "the fat kid" until sixth form then things got weird. Now in my 30s I still inwardly tremble as their are some awful adult bullies ie bad neighbours and colleagues who want to take you down, but I hide the trembling fear underneath demented rage.

My daughter was bullied in high school. I had a 'talk' with the kid. Apparently something I may have said but you can't prove that I said it because he's the only guy who heard what I said sank in because the jerk never bothered her again... and he started crossing the street to avoid me if he saw me coming.

She also use to share with me that all of her dates/boyfriends were very afraid of me.

I never threw pepper in someones face though... the trick is to imply that such a thing might be possible.

As a retired bully I just have to say that when you can get your victim's mom arrested that is like winning the bullying Superbowl. That kid is going to get it a million times worse at school now that her mom is arrested and her mugshot is in the news. It just warms my heart to see that young bullies today are still keeping the tradition alive.

I was occasionally bullied in school.  But there was one guy that really, really bullied me in junior high school.  I beat him to a pulp with a metal stool in art class.  After that no one ever bullied me.

There was one girl that was bullied relentlessly in high school.  A whole bunch of us told the bully to back off repeatedly.  He never did, so a few of the guys (not me), beat the living crap out of him.

Thing is, bullies almost (always?) come from broken families.  So now I sorta feel bad about the whole thing.

You don't, it's been 20 for me.  One of the girls has apologized, but I am still stand-offish with her.  It's too bad I see her when an old friend is in town.  I used to be friends with the girls that bullied me.  They continued after high school at bars.  One stole my cell phone, but I got it back.  I learned to stand up for myself.
