Clearly that day has stuck with him, I gotta think that Lance is lucky he hasn't caught a bullet.

Bullies suck period.....I wasn't bullied much as a kid, I was the class clown in middle school and in high school I supplied people with things that they could put in little tiny square papers and light on fire so nobody really bothered me.....if they did all I had to do was report them to my bigger customers and the problem was solved.....:p I teach my son to take on bullies in his school today, there is no room for it in today's time.

seriously, there is the difference between Us and Them--maturity.  granted, things must have been ABSOLUTELY HIDEOUS for him, but he survived.  which is something that a lot of these kids nowadays (*how old do i sound?*) cannot do because they haven't been taught about basic disappointment.  not everyone loves you; not everyone cares; not everyone is going to pat you on the head and tell you how wonderful you are; etc., etc., etc.

He had a .45 and didn't shoot Lance. I'm pretty sure I would have. He's a better kid than I was.

That snigger after the testimony?  If were a more charitable person I might see that as a nervous reaction,  but I'm not.  Unfit to work in education let alone superintendent.

Well seeing as there seems to be some corroboration.  This guy is NOT qualified to be superintendent.  The fact if he denies it and it happened will make this even worse.  If this happened and he admitted I could say he's a changed man, but given his reaction he doesn't seem remorseful in the slightest.  He shouldn't be in elected dog catcher.  time to get a real job.

I expect we'll now hear stories about how some valiantly faced their bullies, how some stopped them somehow, some recommendations to ball up and confront the bullies, and so on. Yawn.

I found this man's story to be touching, very emotional. And this is the replay, miles away. Unbelievable, to respond to this story with a chuckle or a laughter as this superintendent did. Even with an accusation, I can't imagine turning to derision. I feel sorry for the kids under this supposed superintendent. How unsuitable he is for that position.

Wow, what an unbelievable asshole. That superintendent should be removed for his reaction alone, let alone lying about what happened (witness backs up bullying allogations). I can't believe he laughed after hearing the story.
