We live in Johnson City, KS and my 12 year old son is bipolar and has adhd. We are doing everything necessary for him to be a normal kid in society. The school children as well as the staff in his elementary school has bullied him repeatedly for 3 years. 2 specific children have beat him up and tortured him these last few years and have never been punished, Teachers and custodians have left marks on my son, called him names and bullied him, they would single him out and make fun of him, and never punished. The principal had made his life hell and picked on him for every little thing. Excuses are always made and blame is always put on my son. They have neglected to inform us of ANY problems he was/is having at school and we have been reported numerous times to SRS (which finding have been found in accurate every single time!!!) My other children ages 6 & 7 have been bullied by other children and the staff ignores them and the other children are NEVER punished. We have taken them to Law Enforcement to report the abuse and take pictures, and conviently for them the reports have disappeared or the officers deny ever speaking to my children. We have a long list of many incidents not only by us but other children in our school and nothing was ever done to the bullies but punishment happens when the bullied kids fight back. My child has done so and he knows it wasnt right but he felt threatening and because nobody would help him, he is now paying for his actions. No child should have to go through what he and our family has endured. I want to make sure EVERY STATE enforces their laws and stops the Bullying not only against ALL CHILDREN but especially against children with disabilities!!!!
