Buy That Kid A Pair Of Western Boots
Flopping Aces ^ | 12-03-11 | Skookum

Posted on 12/03/2011 4:15:12 PM PST by Starman417

Liberalism Run Amuck

A seven year old boy takes the John Wayne image of manhood seriously, and is now in big trouble.

A 7-year-old boy is being investigated by his South Boston elementary school for possible sexual harassment after kicking another boy in the crotch.

A seven year old boy was being choked and robbed of his gloves, when he kicked his attacker in the nuts. Thus he ended the assault and prevented the theft.

The school system now claims that the response was an example of sexual assault and they are conducting an investigation.

The mother of first grader, Tasha Lynch:

“He’s 7 years old. He doesn’t know anything about sexual harassment.”

Mark Curran the perpetrator, said his attacker had been bullying him all week on the bus.

His mother says the boy reported to her:

“He just all of a sudden came up to him, choked him. He wanted to take his gloves, and my son said, ‘I couldn’t breathe, so I kicked him in the testicles,'"

“He couldn’t breathe. He was trying to defend himself, I don’t find that sexual harassment. I find that defending himself.”

Ms Lynch says she received a phone call informing her that the incident will be treated as sexual harassment because of inappropriate touching.

The kid did the right thing. Red Wing shoes needs to donate a pair of steel toed boots to the kid.

Each and every day, public schools show us that there is no limit to their stupidity.

Public schools = massive fail.

How long do you want to put up with these cretins educating your children?

Women in charge of schools is nutz...all the crappy decisions they make should be an embarassment to them. Too many of these types of decisions are made by females in charge....The touching was totally appropriate for the incident...I’d have done the same thing...

It’s Massachusetts. You’re supposed to meekly submit to assault, battery and theft. A model citizen would volunteer to be raped and murdered.

Krav Maga - windmill technique breaks that chokehold. Usually sets up to HAMMER your elbow into the attackers teeth, nose, throat, eyes, etc. too.

I saw a 115 lb girl put a 260 lb guy flat on his back with this.

Unfortunately, the Massholians Talibani who run the schools in Boston would likely then charge him for a felony for assaulting and injuring a person with a shod foot.

I guess choking someone, in an attempted robbery, is considered appropriate touching.

My daughter is 13 and a boy at school was accosting her, hitting her, tripping her. She came home and told me about it and that the teachers hadn't done anything to stop him. I told her to kick him in the nuts first chance she got. She did. I also told her that I'd stand beside her and fight the teachers and staff if they gave either one of us any crap. Nothing has happened except the bully boy has quit harassing the girls.

My post makes perfect sense. Your belief that women are incapable of functioning as human beings is what makes no sense. It may reflect the reality of your world, but not all women are dismal failures. If you are the kind of person you claim all women are, it’s your own fault. Stop blaming God for making you be born female. At some point, you have to take responsibility for your own actions, and stop using the excuse that you can’t help it because you’re just a female.

Um, okay. How does that relate to the Boston School Committee’s mishandling of the situation?

I think it has to do with the fact that they aren’t answerable to the people, who passed off their civic responsibility when they decided to stop voting for members, and instead let the mayor appoint members based on the racial, ethnic and socioeconomic diversity of the city. http://www.bostonpublicschools.org/committee

It was meant primarily to relate to your disagreement with goat granny that women generally make poorer executive decisions than men. Her statement relates directly to the Boston school situation. The two things are related because making sound decisions requires being well informed to some extent.

Sounds to me like the bully was choking and robbing the boy of his gloves, but settled for pounding his crotch on the boy’s foot and shoe. Talk about a foot fetish!

The authorities are coming into this as accomplices after the fact. Witness intimidation regarding a felonious act (yoking someone else for the purpose of theft probably qualifies) is a crime all by itself.

I have no problem sending school officials to prison for requiring students to submit to crime.

It appears that a kick to the groin does the job too.

Sadly enough, I believe that quote came from a fellow Texan and not from Marion Morrison (John Wayne) of Iowa.

Lyndon Baines Johnson said it regarding getting politicians to come around to his point of view.

I told my kids about the story. Then explained the politically correct bull crap. I told them to kick the bully in the nuts, punch his throat, and take his eyes out, if he was still attacking them. Then when they are safe (he stops because of major pain), get away. If the morons(out of control officials) press charges against my kids, I’ll deal with them, and their stupid charges.

PS- I taught my kids to be nice!

That’s all well and good in a controlled setting. Unless you frequently practice(spar) with contact, it’s usually only good for such a setting. I’ve seen “students” in the martial arts get their clocks cleaned because they had no idea what to do in a real situation.

He could have kicked him Texas-style, then performed a Heimlich maneuver to keep the other kid from choking on his . . . well . . . there are ladies present, but I think you get the point.

Men don't have any better track record for making any better decisions.

It's not the gender of the person in charge but the common sense and considering these are educrats being promoted to their level of incompetence. It's irrelevant whether they're men or women. They're a product of the system. THAT'S what the problem is.

The kid shouldn't have kicked his assailant in the nuts. He should have torn the heart out of the chest of his assailant and eaten it while the bully still had the breath to watch. Just my opinion.

Sadly, this child was at a compound disadvantage; he is not only too young, he is living in the people's socialist democracy of Massachusetts where he can't even have hope of the availability of Sam Colt's vision of equality.

He's headed for sex offender status, and naturally should be sterilized... oh, and his mother, too.

You are making a broad assumption I never made...You don't know my beliefs but think you do. Your the one that said women are incapable of functioning as human beings...... NOT ME....I never even commented women are dismal failures YOU DID. I did not mention my self except to say I would have kicked the bully also......I never mentioned God YOU DID. I never blamed God since I never mentioned him YOU DID. Your babbling about responsibility, excuses and that I cannot make excuses for failing as a woman...YOUR NUTZ....

Time for you to take responsibility for your stupid post that did not even come close to rebutting my remarks...

There have been several posts this past week about some boy as young as the age of 6 being called a sex offender for defending themselves by some male hating female in a position of power over them....This kid I posted about kicked another boy in the nuts for bullying and chokeing him and the dumb ass female principal called him a sex offender for touching a private part of the bully's body and out of all that you come up with your stupid rant about me and my beliefs....

Good God, get back on your meds....

My wife and my bro's wife went down and took some training to get their concealed carry permits without a word to us...

I later heard that my darlin "shot the dog... you SHOT THE DOG!"

LOL, it was a live fire exercise using video scenarios... and yes, she shot the dog, then the crackhead. She got the highest score.

Getting back to your post... assault is assault, no matter your age, agility, ability, size, stature, or gender. If a kick in the nuts isn't acceptable as a defense, then we have to teach our kids to poke out eyes, break knees, and stifle breathing. I highly recommend it, though a kick in the crotch would be good too... except maybe in Massachusetts.

Unless your original post has been removed, it’s foolish for you to lie about what you said. In any case, it’s foolish for you to lie about what I said. I was replying to your ridiculous claims. My clear statement that “it’s not God’s fault” is not me blaming God. Only a liar would claim that it is. I don’t know if you believe what you said, but I do know you said it. If you now want to claim that you don’t believe what you said, I’ll take your word for that. Not that I would generally take the word of a proven liar, but your claim that you don’t believe what you said is more believable than your claim that the reason the school board is acting irrationally is because women are just like that. I guess I must have been successful in showing you how ridiculous your claim was, or you wouldn’t bother denying you said it. Maybe next time you think about saying something that off the wall you’ll consider whether or not you actually believe it enough to stand behind your words for a change, or if you’re likely to deny your own words again.

You are right, common sense seems to be lacking in some. It seems that more lately have been poor boys being called sex offenders or harassers when they don't even know what it means....2 kids playing doctor at age 5 or 6 and the boy is called a sex offender...this is the legacy of women that find all men nasty dirty things that they have to put up with.

I am really getting tired of it and it may be both sexes but usually a female principal doing this kind of crap to young boys...

Like some pathetic female that wrote and said all sex is rape. That goes back to the rabid lib days...too bad she never met a man that knew what he was doing and she got published.

I'd say most little kids play....if you show me your, I'll show you mine and now it a criminal offense and some elementary school boy lives on the sex offender list.

.every woman should fight this attitude..Its your sons, brothers, nephews etc. Sex offender lists should be about real sex offenders, not kids 6 or 7 years old...

Free republic recently had a story about a female prosecutor that was going to prosecute some little kid (boy) with criminal sex charges as he touched someone on the butt (I think that was what it was). She said that the Law has no age limit....Another stupid women on a power trip with no common sense....

Just because I am a female doesn't mean I find all females intelligent, bright and never wrong...Not a fan of Ann Coulter but agree with her when she said she'd give up her right to vote if all other women did also...cause lets face it some of female sex are stupid....Look at how many are democrats, love abortion and hate anyone that comes close to being a man...I rest my case on that remark...(if they aren't metrosexual, female dems don't like them)

No offense intended, cause I don't think you fall into the catagory I am writting about. Rant off now...

You're making the broad assumption that goat granny believes "Women in charge of schools is nutz." Just because she said it doesn't mean she believes it. And if you can get her to see how stupid her statement was then she didn't make the statement after all. Yeah, that's the ticket. She didn't say "Women in charge of schools is nutz." Anybody who disagrees with that statement must be the one who said it. Yeah, that's the ticket.
