When Rebecca Sardoni, from New Jersey, discovered that her daughter was being viciously bullied on the ride to school every morning, the mother decided to do what was necessary for her daughter.
She boarded the school bus along with her daughter's grandmother and slapped the alleged bully while also slamming the bully's head against the window while the grandmother screamed at him.
That boy had to be taken to the hospital for neck injuries, and now the bully victim's mother has been arrested, although the mother denies physically attacking anyone.
Here's what the mother said:
"They (the boys) weren't the ones who were suffering; my daughter was. They're making us look like bad people and we're not. This little girl has been through a lot. She had to write it on a piece of paper because she was so embarrassed. She was hysterical."
We totally understand the desire to help one's children, but attacking another parent's child is DEFINITELY not the solution to ending her daughter's bullying.
Unfortunately the mother and the grandmother will now have to go to court with the mother receiving charges such as simple assault, criminal trespass, and making terroristic threats. The grandmother will receive a charge for criminal trespassing.
There definitely isn't a winner in a situation such as this.
