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 KUAM News.

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.
