I would just like to say that I am disappointed in the Barbourville School System. I am disappointed that we as a school would allow a child to be wrongful accused and hurt in the manner that this particular child has been hurt. Please, parents control your bullying childern, be adults and handle this negative publicity properly. We are the adults, if there is proof lets bring it forth and get the accused child some help. Children are the backbone of our community. If there isn't lets apologize and move on with our lives. As far as, I can tell this story, no matter what the ending, is not going to be one that has a positive impact on the children of either side. I challege you as parents to act swiftly in resolving this manner, and please do it respectively without futher hurting another innocent child. I can accuse anyone of anything but without proof it is simply an accusation. Instead, of involving the media and make a negative slurr on our school why not be adults question your child to make sure that he/she hasn't been harrassing another child themselves. It is wrong that we cannot be adults. Hurting a child is not the way to handle this situation. I have children I never want them to be hurt but in the same respect they had better not hurt some other child. There is enough love in our small town to overcome a problem such as this; however we have to be willing to realize that maybe our child could be in the wrong. Again, I challenge you to dig deep and find the real truth of the matter. Use the words I'm sorry and put this mess behind you. One more thought to ponder. Never think that your child is completely innocent and would never do something because they will fool you ever time. A child is just that a child.

All of you trying to say that your child is on the "hit list"...how do you know because no list has been found!None of you stopped for one second to think about what these accusations would do to this tormented child.Calling the news and the newspaper was absurd and embarrassing for our town.Is there ever anything good to talk about in Barbourville?Politics, money, and power seems to be the neverending topic of conversation.People get over it!Nothing good will become of this except for the truth!The parents that stirred this are in for a rude awakening.I believe that karma is real and when these slanderous people find out what really went on at Barbourville Elementary School and what their "perfect children" did to this innocent child...the #### will definitely hit the fan!I think this family should stand tall and proud and pave the way for other children in our community that have not been accepted and/or bullied!Everything happens for a reason and if any good becomess of this it is that these and other children will think twice before they are demeaning to other children!Good luck to this family and may you set a precedent for other victims of bullying!

I don't know what is wrong with the school system here in knox co. I do know that any parent who wants to give their kid a chance to succeed should move and take their kids to a different community. That is what we did, after our kid was cut, beaten, and ridiculed by other students and staff, all the while handing out 1 day suspensions or less for the offenders. This place is lucky I haven't decided to file suit for the abuses of my child because that's how I feel about it. And to all who know the situation, parents and staff, you know Im right.
