It all started about 8 months ago, when my children complained to me that a child on their bus was swearing at them and hitting them on the bus, so me being the mama bear I am waited at the bus one day to speak with the mother and hope that I could get things resolved once and for all. The kid was yelling things to my kids such as "fucking losers, dumb shits, ugly pieces of shit, fucking fags".
I approached the mother at the bus stop and said "Hey I am not sure if you are aware but your child on the bus is swearing at my children and hitting them, please speak with him, and if we cannot resolve it, than I will contact the school for further assistance. The mother turned to her child and said "are you swearing at these children" and the child looked at his mother and yell "SHUT UP" to his mother. I said I will leave this with you, and my children and I proceed to leave. When we got home, I explained that the child's reaction to his mothers questions simply showed that there is obviously something wrong with the child or that the mother has no control, so I explained that I did not think there was much more I could about it, and advised my children to stay away from the child as much as possible.
Starting in September, it all started all over again, and I continued to tell my children to avoid the child and ignore him. One day the child even punched my 3 year old in the stomach and my eldest pushed him back and said "DO NOT TOUCH MY BABY SISTER". My son Armani reported all incidents to the school officials giving them the opportunity to step in and assist, however all his complaints were ignored.
On November 2nd, 2015, things escalated even more. My son got on the bus and the only seat left on the bus was beside the child that has continued to verbally and physically abuse my child. So my eldest took that spot to avoid his little siblings from having to deal with the child. The kid proceeded to say the following to my children "you are all niggers, and need to go back to Africa, and my mother is going to beat up your nigger bitch mother, you black pieces of shit, do not fucking sit beside me".... THIS CHILD IS 8 YEARS OLD, SPEAKING LIKE THIS!
My son came home and told both me (mama) and his dad and I promised my son that it would be dealt with in the morning with the principal.
On November 3rd, I proceeded to work and was waiting for the kids school to start so I could call and speak with the principal, when I received a call from Armani (eldest) sounding scared and in a panic, and I could hear a lady yelling in the background. I asked Armani what is going on and he says this "mom the kids mother is hear swearing at me telling me I touched her kid, and told me to wait to see what the father is going to do to me after school." I LOST IT.... I got in my car and headed straight back to Milton to the school and my husband met me there....
When we arrive, by chance the parents involved are walking into the school at the same time, so I was thinking "perfect they are here to resolve this once and for all with the principal"... I was wrong they came to the school for other matters. I proceeded to speak with the principal in his office, when my phone goes off and my son says "his dad is in the office and tried grabbing me and the office got mad at him *thumbs down*"
I flew out the principals office and started to freak out, and the parents involved then left. This man grabbed my sons arm asking the wife "is this the kid".... WTF
Long story short.... the police finally arrived, and was VERY rude to me, and confrontational, and telling me that "I do not decide if I want to press charges" and that it is "her choice" if she does, and that is if she believes their is criminal intent, and advised that she does not see much evidence of criminal intent. The officer spoke down to me and lacked any empathy, and would ask if I had any questions and when I proceeded to ask a question I was accused of "not working with her". It was a very upsetting situation....
After taking a statement from my son, my husband and I, and meeting with the other parents, the officer did not believe there was criminal intent..... how much more needs to happen before there is criminal intent? The parents threatened and proceeded through with their threat IN THE OFFICE of the school imagine what they would/will do to my children outside of the eyes of other adults.
Halton (Milton) in particular continues to show us that they do not care about the youth the way they should. The police did not only let down my husband and I, but they showed my children that they meant nothing at all to the system(police and school).
I am so frustrated with the way the officer spoke to my husband and I and the way officer disregarded the derogatory terms used to my children.
I am disappointed that the child was not suspended for his behaviour and that the school was still considering recess and trying to figure out which time he should go outside to avoid my kids... When I was a child, recess was a privilege and when you got in trouble recess was taken away for a couple days. The only thing the school did was arrange a different bus for the child.... where is the discipline, or the apology letter from the child who said such disgusting things?
I was so upset when talking to children last night trying to explain how the police came up with her conclusion that their was "no criminal intent and that the parents seemed rational, and that the step-father had chemical burns on his feet so he could not do much anyways".... What kind of world do we really live in....
We are not NIGGERS, we are beautiful human beings with a heart and soul, yes we are MIXED, we are proud of our background, we are all part Jamaican and PROUD, we ALL bleed the same colour as everyone else....
