Yeah, that needed to be handled through the school and or police. Props for wanting to fend for his daughter but wrong way to do it.

Back in my school days I used to ride a bike to school. Every day I got hassled/bullied by this one kid. I went the appropriate route, went to school officials, security and the vp. They all said they would take care of it. After about 2 weeks, nothing happened, and I was still getting harassed every single morning. I had to take matters into my own hands. So one day the bully got in front of my bike like he always did and went to grab my handlebars, and I just sped up and ran his ass over. Never had an issue again. My point is that the system didn't work for me and obviously didn't work for this girl either. I agree with the father's actions, I bet that girl gets left alone from now on.

well , I have a daughter she is grown now and glad of that, cause back in the day you did not see to many crazy assed people do this kind of stuff.
And yes kids take care of it themselves. But if you had a kid on the bus and some crazed ass father gets on the bus who knows what this person is going to do. People flip out way to easy now.

When I went to school we got our asses paddled by the principle if we screwed up. and our parents whipped our ass if we screwed up.

Today you can't even whip your own kids , so why in the hell would you want some other fool YELLING at your kid.

The parent is the one to have a BRAIN and the bus driver too.

He didn't assault anyone, just yelled. I still see no fault.

Hmm.... I'm going to say he did the right thing but also did the wrong thing. He did the right thing by confronting the bullies but saying you're going to kill them doesn't help him out much with the school system.

PC thinking like yours is the reason why this goes on. No one wants to do their jobs and disipline the kids for fear of losing their jobs. Good thing it wasn't my kids who got harrassed because they would have put the bullies faces through the windows. Sometimes you have to make a stand....right or wrong. No it is not assault to yell at someone, that is disorderly conduct. Charges are always dropped in the righteous cases.

He did the right thing in my opinion. He was protecting his daughter, and he still has his freedom to protect his daughter another day...So all in all, mission accomplished. Sure, he didnt get away with it scott free...but the objective was worth the consequences imo. Good job dude!

As for the crying mother of the future woman beater, fuck you bitch, get off your ass and raise your fucking kid right and other people wont yell at your kids for sticking condoms on their daughter's head and hitting them.

Bravo......If their parents took care of their kids, someone else wouldn't have to yell at them. If the were not little shits, they wouldn't get yelled at.

He is just getting ready for the real world, where you screw with the wrong person, you get screwed with as well. Morale of the story, don't mess with people to the extent that goes beyond "kids will be kids" and "they all get picked on"....BS sure, some stuff happens, bullies will bully, but what ends up of the bully? Someone always kicks his/her ass and they no longer are a bully

Seems like today bullies are getting so bad because the second someone stands up to them, kicks their ass, "yells" at them....they are victimized and coddled which just enables them more to be bigger "untouchable" bullies.

Time I call that company selling land out in Utah and build my compound lol
