    My son attends Cope Middle School where he has been routinely bullied by students. I sent him to school with an audio recorder on his cell phone after the school and authorities failed to respond appropriately to the bullying. Yesterday I told the AP of Cope, Tony Beckermeyer, that I had audio-tapes of the bullying. By the way, the bullying was also on camera in the school surveillance system. Beckermeyer immediately began badgering me, saying "you should consider the source of your information" as though my son was lying. I have an audio-tape of Beckermeyer yesterday when he said this to me, among other things. Beckermeyer had no concern at all for my son's welfare, and refused to assist me. His verbal attack I endured was extreme. Beckermeyer threw me out of the office after falsely stating to a law enforcement officer that I refused to leave. Beckermeyer never asked me to leave. He slipped back to his office to call the deputy so I wouldn't know he'd done so. Today I went to the school to pick up my son's cell phone and meet with Beckermeyer and the school Principal Judy Grooms. Judy Grooms handed me a letter stating that I was banned from the campus of the school due to "my behavior" in the office yesterday. I told Grooms that I had the incident yesterday on audio-tape. Grooms replied to me "that doesn't matter." Only someone who really doesn't care would say that. My son's cell phone was in his pants pocket when Beckerymeyer demanded my son give it up. The Sheriff's deputy tried to get my son to give him the password to his cell phone. He called me at work to get me to give it to him. My son was given two days of suspension because he was audio-recording at school. That is the reason plainly stated in the voicemail I got from Beckermeyer. I was badgered terribly again by Beckermeyer and Grooms today when I went to get my son's cell phone. I stated simply "I will not sit here and be badgered this way." I got up to leave with my son. Beckermeyer and Grooms followed me from Beckermeyer's office to the front desk of the office, yelling after me the entire time as I was walking out of the office to protect my son from these abusive administrators. When I got to the office door, Grooms held up an audio-recorder and triumphantly pointed out that she had been recording me the whole time today. I replied to her "I recorded too sweetheart." Then Beckermeyer said "Good for you sweetheart." The false accusations against my son are on tape. I can prove he is innocent. These administrators are covering up their negligence and failure to discipline the students. Somebody please give me the name of a good lawyer who can help my son. The entire Bossier School Board should be replace for allowing these kinds of guerilla antics and intimidation tacts go on in our schools. We pay their salaries. Doesn't anybody actually care enough to make a change for the sake of our children? doublestrouble2@gmail.com. I will play my tapes for anyone who wants to hear them.

    I honestly agree with everyone speaking on this site. She didn't take care of anything when I was even there. I'm not speaking for just myself when I say that she is a terrible example of someone who is supposed to teach the kids in this area how to do anything. She is not being a role model to anyone and deserves more than just getting fired.

    Can someone get Randell Medley a medal? What you said was so well put, non-offensive, professional, I'm running out of adjectives here...but seriously. I think the bias and silence from higher school board officials speaks volumes. Maybe it is time for bigger changes...

    I applaud you for "contacting the principal", Presley. She needs to see all of this to help understand why she lost her position. Looking forward to that day and Sobo returning back to peace.
