Taking serious action

I applaude the efforts to support Falcon but I think the bigger thing here is how to change the law and school policy. Not so much in regard to making what he did legal (although I don’t see much illegal about it) but more to make it so that fathers DON'T HAVE TO break the law to protect their daughters (or sons).

The father grabbing the boy is not the best solution, the best solution is that the father can have confidence that the school or the police will take it seriously EVERY TIME and the parents and the child find that there are consequences to bullying (assault etc).

I suggest we target the minister of education for starters Steve Maharey Minister of Education
