What punishment did the other child get? Probably nothing. This has been an ongoing problem. A child is backed into a corner and when he/she defends themself they are the one that is labeled the bully and troublemaker. Seen it happen numerous times in Vernon.

So "backed into a corner" can also mean beating up another kid so he has to see the nurse and throwing books around at will and that is OK? Let's talk about the anger management issues that are clear if you care to read the article. Seems to me "like father like son" and yes I know Frank.

What for, you have never listened to me or anyone else I have seen interact with you yet. You are so far in denial I am surprised you can sh*t at night.

Not sure what's going on here, but the post is about bullies. Isn't that exactly what you're doing? Where's the difference?

Are you suggesting anyone is bullying Frank let alone his offspring? Have you ever met or talked to Frank or any/all his offspring? While he chose to name his 12 year old, I accept we should have left him out of this at least for a few years but that was Frank's decision. Plenty are speculating but who knows how this will end but I do not buy into the story told, do you? To me, the signs are not good though and that is my point!

Wow, I'm so sorry that your child and family had to endure this. I had a similar situation with one of my kids in CM, a Vernon primary school. It started in third grade and i brought it to the attention of the principal but nothing was done. The second incident was physical and my daughter came home bruised, but nobody saw anything. I then called the parent to gain their support and was told that their child would be spoken to. The third time was also physical but I noticed a personality change in my daughter this time. After speaking with the child's parents yet again, I realized they had no control of her and nothing was going to be done about this. So here's how I solved it... I was a frequent visitor at the school, SCA, ran several fundraisers, you get the picture. So I camped out on the playground talking to the teachers one day and observing when the bullying was taking place and sure enough, my daughter was knocked down to the ground by this same bully. At that point, I walked over to my daughter to see if she was alright, then went over to the bully and squatted down to her eye level. After checking to see that no one was within ear shot of our conversation, here's what I said... If you ever touch or speak to my daughter again, I'll break your arms and legs in four places, and if you tell anyone about this conversation, I'll deny it and who do you think they'll believe. That was the LAST time she ever bothered my daughter. The only person I told about this was my husband. Would I do it again... HELL YES.

My daughter went to Vernon schools. Repeated abuse from the same child. They made my Daughter move her seat on the bus like she was the problem. The bully resumed picking on another kid making him cry. The bully still picked on my child. This went on for years. The bully's mother worked in the school system and nothing was done. I had gone to school several occasions. When it got physical, still nothing even though they were running the Anti Bullying Campaigne. Finally after I threatened to report it to the papers, something was done. So from second grade to seventh, this child was able to run their reign of bullying on several victims.

Might not be "classy" but it did stop the little brat from hurting her child ever again....I personally like it. They were harsh words but the little twit understood exactly what she said without saying anything else...now, where would a child get the fear of God over that sentance, FROM HE PARENTS THAT PROBALY BEAT THE HELL OUT OF HER, which is why she is a bully at school. Good job and congrats!

I don't think so. Big Frank has made his childs name public. He and his wife refuse any blame for Frank jr's unacceptable behavior many times before this incident. He didn't take into consideration that many who have had to deal with either him or his bullying son would speak up and let it be known he is an arse, in denile refusing to acknowledge the fact that his kid is a monster. The BOE representatives are not picking on Frank Jr they too are at their witts end with the whole family.

Lisa, I am not sure I would have gone that far but I would definately have made it clear that if my kid was not left alone, there would be consequences. Following through is another story of course, and all it can be is a convincing bluff. Tough situation.

As for Big Frank's problems and my attitude to them, given he still tries to bully and acts superior in my experiences with him, and his wife is no better, I am dubious the situation is a straight forward case of picking on the weak or different. Belittling people and taunting is second nature to Frank, you think the child does not pick up on that and might even think it is acceptable? The sooner Frank realizes where a major part of the problem is, the better for all concerned. That is not to say of course that the kid is not being bullied, would not surprise me at all if he was. That to has to be stopped as soon as possible but an attitude change by the whole family would help that, even more so given the child is at a new school and (hopefully) the kids there have not read the very unfortunate article naming him.
