Mighty Mama Sues School for Failing to Stop Endless Bullying of Gay Son
The mother of a gay student in Marion Central School District has had it up to HERE with school officials doing nothing to protect her son from relentless bullying within the hallowed halls of his school.
So rather than wait for this tempestuous scenario to result in her son taking his own life, like we’ve seen over and over and over again over the past two years, Traci Lanzone is going on the offensive, and has filed a lawsuit against the adults who are doing nothing to help keep her son alive.
“Everything from being pushed, kicked, having food thrown at him, his clothes being hidden…it was just relentless,” Lanzone said.
The boy remains a student in the high school.
“No child should ever have to go through that. You shouldn’t have to go to school and worry about what the day is going to bring,” Lanzone said.
A representative for the school district released the following statement: “The Marion Central School District takes bullying very seriously. The district has strict policies against bullying and established procedures for handling reported incidents. Student safety is a primary concern for the school district.”
Except they don’t, and it’s not. Lanzone filed over 30 specific complaints with the school district over the past two year. Thirty instances of bullying that went unanswered and allowed to continue! Strict policies, indeed.
Best of luck to Ms. Lanzone and her son. Although, from the sound of this case so far, it doesn’t sound like they need it.
