DECEMBER 17--In response to the reported bullying of her teenage son by classmates, an Iowa woman allegedly posted a Facebook message suggesting that the boy would “shoot up” his high school and “only get the ones that caused this. He is an excellent marks men.”
Police allege that Teri Pallat, 39, acknowledged that she posted the troubling message yesterday afternoon, but then subsequently deleted it. “She admitted that her intent was to ‘get peoples’ attention,’” according to a criminal complaint sworn by a Council Bluffs Police Department officer.
Another great example of stupidity strikes the Web. When I first saw the picture of the lady busted all I could think of was Honey Boo Boo made a Boo boo.

The cops should be arresting the bullies not her. Bullying in unacceptable and if authorities are unwilling to do anything to stop it then victum/s are entitled to defend themselves are they not???

in the "old days" if you were bullied, Dad taught you to fight. Then along came Zero Tolerance, permissive parents and attorneys. Those that fight back against a bully are often charged with a crime these days.
Given the way the law treats school kid issues (playground fights) it is no wonder kids are growing up feeling bullied.
