Florida dad threatened kids on bus who bullied his daughter.
SANFORD, Fla. – A father furious because his 13-year-old daughter who suffers from cerebral palsy had been bullied stormed onto a school bus and threatened the children who teased her.
The dad boarded the school bus Sept. 3 because several boys were allegedly bullying his daughter. They placed an open condom on his daughter’s head, smacked her on the back of her head, twisted her ear and shouted rude comments at her.

Attention Parents! Join With Our Martial Arts School to Stop Bullying Before It Starts
Please take this opportunity to educate yourself about an issue that affects 30%, or more than 5.7 million, of children and youth in the United Statesbecause that is how many of them are estimated to be bullies, have been the victims of bullying or both.
Many of you may remember bullying incidents in your youth, and now in adulthood may think it’s just part of growing and it never really affected you. You would be one of the fortunate ones, for bullying has much to do with stunting a child’s emotional and intellectual growth, even if it never has more than minor physical effects.
Studies and statistics support the conclusions.
- Studies show that bullies are generally physically aggressive, hot-tempered, easily angered and impulsive, with a low tolerance for frustration.1
- Children and youth who are bullied are typically anxious, insecure and cautious and suffer from low self-esteem, rarely defending themselves.1 Bullied students often have problems concentrating in school.2
- There appears to be a strong relationship between childhood bullying and adult legal and criminal problems.
- Adults who were bullied as youth have higher levels of depression and poorer self-esteem than other adults.2
The evidence leaves little doubt that bullying is an issue that requires the attention of all adults in our community; and maybe the biggest reason is that social scientists and the studies they conduct support the concept that bullying is a precursor to the deadly gun-violence occurring in too many high schools. In many cases, bullying escalates to violence because of earlier confrontations over relatively petty issues or intolerance for others’ points-of-view.
