Two teens arrested for arson, ...

That's low, pathetic and sad stealing from a disabled person. Seems to be an ongoing issue for him and he also seems to be widening his reputation area. It follows you every and anywhere. There's no escaping it.  (Apr 28, 2011 | post #20)

Former Itasca County Deputy Charged

Dave S always thought he was the shit. Cocky at work, thought he was all high and mighty etc. Its hilarious he sees how the other side feels!! Same with the other one. Don't forget the same department was sued and had to pay 60 plus grand for making sexual gestures, phone calls comments etc to the court house janitor whom I know very well all because hes a little slow. GOOD FOR HIM BUT HE SHOULD HAVE WENT FOR MORE!! Guess who had to pay that? Not any of the several who were involved and still they all never had to miss a day because of it and still work for us. How much more has been kept hidden from us? Vic has a lot of clean up to do....but hes the man who can do it!! Need to get rid of the immature, sick, unprofessional deputies this county has had since Medure didn't have the guts to.  (Dec 22, 2010 | post #10)

Bullying still concerns Blairsville parents

Our schools here where I live do in fact have a cop at each school called "Liasion Officers" But that doesnt seem to matter. The problem at schools now days is that these liasion cops and these teachers act more like these kids "friends " then they do the authority type figure that they should keep it at. And let me tell you, I have 4 strait years of incidents I could talk to U about where my son was bullied and nothing was ever done. At one time, because I do in fact confront and stand up for my kids and I DON'T back down which the school doesn't like would get a letter every day even on Saturdays for like 2 months strait where my son was getting an hour of in school detention everyday for one thing or another they said he was doing after I went in there and wouldn't back down. So I came to see where the REAL BULLYING starts and that's with these teachers and liaison officers. I suppose they thought that it would stop me from coming to the school and standing up for my child. Unfortunately it only pissed me off more and they would see me twice as much as before coming in to make them explain why these things would happen when I would confront the issue.Then my son was left feeling he had no choice but to let others bully him because going to the principal to tell or telling me and me going to the school would do nothing but add the adults bullying him and also the kids. You know what I am saying? Its a vicious cycle that will NEVER end but only increase. Kinda puts a bend in the "parent involvement is so important" ideas.  (Nov 30, 2010 | post #2)

Just wondering if by chance anyone seem the small little news bit Titled "NO COMMENT NEEDED" listed under "LAW REPORT" in the Wednesday November 17th, 2010 issue of the Herald Review? I was not shocked by the story, knowing first hand that this happens more then alot of parents know, but by that title alone. I'm curious about who titled it and why they would title an incident like that like it was?? Are you kidding me? A parent went to meet with teachers about a punishment his son was given for what ever reason that they felt was unfair. And it ended up with him being escorted off of school grounds for being disruptive, feeling embarressed I am sure, not to mention the sons peers seeing it Im sure. I am in the process of writting to the editor about this because even though I only know what I just mentioned, I bet I can tell U exactly how it happened. I went through it for 4 years strait. It was handled in the way they always handle these types of situations as proven in the article this is posted under. Although they strongly suggest "Parent Involvement" it always ends with them winning and parents and students not being able to be heard but in fact "BULLIED " into frustration that ends disruptive because it is the only way U may get them to hear you. But in the end they all end up finding no fault in their staff and no reasoning or explanation on how they have come to their decision even though some are still wondering why. And then soon its forgotten and its a vicious cycle. Why we as parents, victims of this type of 'BULLYING", tax payers, students are not allowed reasoning behind ther dicisions cant find a way to be given why they came to the conclusion is beyond me. So therefore their form of bullying will not end and our kids will be targets as I have seen first hand and I have alot to back that up. Can no one else see that if we want bullying to stop we need to realize and stop it where it REALLY begins?  (Nov 29, 2010 | post #9)

As More Bullying Victims Commit Suicide, Right-Wing Group...

I started a discussion titled Minnesota Teachers , Bullying & ADHD Discussion If anyone wants to express their opinion I would appreciate it. Please if your going to be immature and just start arguements do not even post because then your bullying others in a discussion. Be mature and lets discuss our opinions with out insults and name calling because that would make us no better, actually worse, then these kids at schools.  (Nov 25, 2010 | post #170)

Minnesota Teachers , Bullying & ADHD Discussion

What training, if any, are teachers required to take to learn about ADHD/ADD? I live in Minnesota & would like some imput and opinions on this topic. It also relates to the whole bullying issues that have recently been all over the news as if it's a new issue that needs to be dealt with. It's because it's allowed to go as far as it does that it has become this. And my main issue is until the TEACHERS THEMSELVES, stop bullying students, this will never end but only worsen. Now, I do not mean to insult all the GREAT teachers that are out there. But those teachers are also caught in the middle and bullied as well. I've seen this happen, have proof of it happening, proof I have tried starting groups to deal with these issues, and proof of how some teachers deal with, and treat students and parents when any type of bullying issue is brought to their attention. Its very very sad people. Sad as it is, NO MATTER WHAT ANYONE DOES, this will always be an issue.  (Nov 25, 2010 | post #1)
