A student captured footage of a violent beating in a Mississippi high school cafeteria, and the mother of the victim, who has since pulled her children out of school, is now threatening to sue.
The mother, Rhonda Hughes, says her 13-year-old 7th grader suffered multiple bruises after being punched over and over again, WTVA reports.
“It makes you outraged and makes you sick at your stomach to watch the videos. You know, the school has a policy against bullying and violence, but if they’re not going to enforce it, it’s not worth the paper it’s printed on,” said Destiny’s mother, Rhonda Hughes.
This is not the first time Destiny has had issues with this bully, Hughes said. The teachers’ failure to intervene has forced her to withdraw her children, and she is pursuing legal action against the school for negligence.
I hope and pray these children are safe, and the bully herself gets help as well. That needs to start with some sharp discipline that starts her on a process that leads to a bit more self awareness.
