No place for bul­ly­ing

Re “Fa­ther lashes out at bul­lies,” Sept. 18

Los Angeles Times - - Opinion -

With re­spect to your story, which de­scribed James Wil­lie Jones con­fronting boys who were con­tin­u­ally teas­ing his 13-year-old daugh­ter who has cere­bral palsy: Both school of­fi­cials, who re­port­edly were no­ti­fied, and par­ents, who should have taught their chil­dren bet­ter, should be ashamed, along with the ado­les­cents who acted so cru­elly.

There can be no ex­cuse for school of­fi­cials and par­ents to sit on their hands when some­thing like this is tak­ing place.

As for Jones, there is only one word that de­scribes his ac­tions: heroic.
