Mom takes matters into her own hands

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) – Jacksonville authorities say a mother pulled out a gun at a school bus stop because her son was being bullied. The police report says 40-year-old Johnna Briggs pointed the gun at other students getting off the bus and said, “Does anyone have something to say?”

Her son was being bullied on the school bus and authorities say she wanted to put an end to it.

Briggs is charged with improper exhibition of a firearm, a misdemeanor.

    Most of us would Beth,,you know what have been even funnier if she said;”Do you feel lucky Punk? Well,do ya?. From what I have read this bullying thing has gotten way out of control in our schools and have read some horror stories about this stuff, it is hard to make an assessment of what happened, the lady was probably trying to scare them, but someone could have gotten hurt.

    I would say on this bullying thing she should have went through channels if one would not help move on to the other one, Principal, Superintendent, Etc. Get a lawyer if need be, if you create enough waves somethings bound to hit the beach. From what I have read some children never report this they just keep taking abuse and get caught in a cycle, kind of similar to an abusive relationship.
