Bullying in schools is a big problem. It was so bad in this case that the father went out and got a restraining order. Smart move to protect your children in school. The Los Angeles Times reports:
A Riverside County man says he has secured a restraining order against a fourth-grade boy who threatened his son with a knife.
Robert Casteel told the Riverside Press-Enterprise that earlier this month a student at Mission Bell Elementary School pulled a knife on his 10-year-old son, Christopher, and told him that he would “get you after school.”
He said he pursued a restraining order to protect his son because the school has been lenient with the alleged aggressor.
“We’ve already got too many things happening in schools. Kids are getting shot and stabbed,” Casteel told the newspaper. “This isn’t something to take lightly.”
