You have to even wonder about the other kids on the bus. If that girl is not there, the bullies will find another victim.
When I was a kid I just hated people making fun of the "retarded kids". I would tell on them or even beat them up myself. I hated having bullies in my school. Most kids would not bully me physically because my parents taught me to hit back twice as hard. I was taught to take the verbal taunts and throw them back as a joke. Most of the time it worked. I doubt this little girl could stand up to bullies herself. Why were none of the other kids doing anything about it when it first started? This generation of *** for brains will grow up to raise the same type of kids.
The thing is - if you read one of the other articles - it says that the school responded )after beign asked whether they knew of the bullying incident that supposedly incite the father) that "they had heard of the incident the day before but that it had happened to another child " (not his daughter).
So, let me guess - nothing ever came of that "fact". I also wonder whether any one else told their dad...
