Last week was great for getting hot under the collar with our school systems and the law.
Grandson is 14, he is 6 feet 2 and heavy set. He has had bullies since middle school. This past week he had someone start a fight by hitting on the head with a bottle. He had "enough" so he punched him. Well, even so h did not start the fight that started an ugly ball rolling for both parties.
No longer do w say "boys will be boys".
Fine, thought this was over with when a face shows up on his site.
The face of another 14 year old holding a cocked gun towards the camera with a threat: If you do that again I will kill you.
Something in that vein.
He also had photos of a bunch of riffles and guns and a Confederate flag.
I am sure the weapons belong to his father but to see this on the site was alarming.
It took almost a week before it was taken off the .
Reports were made to the school principal, the police, the magistrate.
At this point we have been told that it is in the "right hands".
W can only hope.
Grandson who is in advanced math/algebra studies had tests this week and could hardly concentrate.
We can't say again "boys will be boys", we now had Virgina Tech, Columbine, a girl committing suicide over bullies and so on.
No doubt the boy needs help , he was not involved in the original argument and is not even a friend of either my grandson nor the other kid.
The police tell us that it is not a threat if you have a condition first....like if you do that I will do that.
So that makes it then????
OK to point a photo with a gun aimed for you to see this as aimed at your face?
Frightened? maybe not but concerned ?
hell , yes. I am.
