What a remarkable thing to happen:
Parents of bullies in a New York town could face jail time thanks to a new law passed unanimously last week.
It’s the no tolerance crackdown a group of parents in a western New York community lead by Victoria Crago, had been pushing for after Ms Crago’s 13-year-old son was assaulted in front of her earlier this year.
“This young man just sucker-punched him right in the face and hit him as hard as he could,” the mum told ABC News of the attack. “What really alarmed me about the situation was the brazen act of violence in front of a parent
The little scrotes know that bleeding heart liberals have made kids untouchable. And for them to remain untouchable, now the parents will get punished for rearing a piece of shite kid.
The incident prompted Ms Crago and her husband Will Crago, to create a Facebook page “North Tonawanda Coalition for Safe Schools and Streets” for concerned local parents, who were increasingly alarmed at what they called the “culture of violence” around North Tonawanda Middle School.
Their efforts lead to a new anti-bullying law being passed by the North Tonawanda Common Council on 1 October. Under its terms, parents can be fined $250 and sentenced to 15 days in jail if their child violates the city’s curfew (unaccompanied children under 16 years aren’t allowed on the streets after 11 pm on weeknights or midnight on weekends), or any of the city’s laws – including bullying.
“We hope to never need to use this law but it’s there in extreme cases,” North Tonawanda City School District Superintendent Greg Woytila told ABC News. “But we need to do a better job and we are continually trying to do that.”
Tonawanda City Attorney, Luke Brown, says the law is more about getting parents to engage “in the process” and to find solutions.
If you have parents that don’t care that their kids are running around terrorising the place, then I see no problem with giving them two weeks in jail as a reality check.
But don’t expect it to help.
“When you’ve got 3,000-plus students and two or three are out of control, that’s too many,” he said. “One’s too many. Sometimes the police officers are the only ones trying. The families have given up.”
People who create children that go on to become violent, dishonest and a continuous cost to the general taxpayer need to be locked up until the child is a legal adult. It will prevent the creation of more children for starters.
