Guam - A local organization that's very mission is to combat
bullying has responded to the recent incident at Untalan Middle School.
Guam Anti-Bullying Organization's Cindy Hanson say she was surprised that more
focus was placed on the irate parent whose child was being bullied at Untalan Middle School rather than on the bully.
"I know there is still talk out in the community that maybe
he should be arrested, and our feeling is at the organization if we are going
to take the law to the extreme, apply it equally across the board, if he is
guilty of something then we know for sure that the bully is," she told
Customs Major Phil Taijeron apologized for his actions of yelling and
cursing at staff and students when he went to the school upset that his
daughter had been bullied. The school has not taken any action against the
child who was the bully as the matter is still under investigation by the
department and the Attorney General's Office.
The superintendent meanwhile tells KUAM that staff have requested training
on how to deal with upset parents.
