Father forces son to hold pink ‘I am a bully’ sign on Texas highway

A Texas father is refusing to apologize for forcing his child to hold
a pink “I am a bully” sign because he says that “we don’t need another
Columbine.”
When Jose Lagares found out
that his son got in trouble for bullying in his fourth grade class, he
sent the boy out to the intersection of Ft. Hood Street and W. Veterans
Memorial Boulevard in Ft. Hood on Tuesday.
KCEN captured video of the fourth grader holding a pink sign that read: “I am a bully. Honk if you hate bullies.”





“Bullying
is also a form of public humiliation,” Lagares told the station. “Maybe
he understands that when he humiliates someone publicly that doesn’t
feel good.”
“Hopefully he’ll take that with him so the next time he tries to bully someone he’ll think about it twice.”


In an interview with KCEN on Thursday, Lagares said that he had received negative criticism, but he did not regret punishing his son.
