I don't know who in their right mind puts a child out in the freezing rain, and handicapped at that???? Her parents under armed guard, as she was also??? What in the sam hell??? The cops need to go back to school and learn what the word empathy means and feels, for the community job they have. Very cruel, imho.

Here, the bus drivers can submit a request for a student to not ride the bus, however; the principal makes the final decision. Again, lack of communication from the school to both parents. Were the bullies on the bus, talked to by the principal/or assistant principal?? I can't imagine how Tymier felt walking 40 minutes to/from school, unreal, in this day and age, in 4 degree weather!! Talking to a student, or to a counselor, can resolve issues that are concerning to them. Personally, I find the school's response to this student concerning, as they did nothing to correct his dilemma.

Get the Furies out on a mission to correct both of these egregious behaviors of both the school & the police, in these matters.

Thanks, Joanne for post.
The hits just keep on a'coming, don't they? Sad.

Totally unacceptable in all aspects of life. Better communication is needed in every aspect of this issue, the school principal, the bus driver, and both the parents or whomever is responsible for the child’s safety.
Boy am I ever glad I my son is grown up and not having to deal with the craziness that goes on in the schools today.
When I was, we had regular parent meetings to address and speak out about the various problems the kids were facing.
One thing I can certainly say now…they’s seem minor compared to what goes on in the school systems today.
Thanks Joanne

Even if their suspect had been at that house, stealing a few phones, is no reason to send in a SWAT team and have them point military rifles at a small boy’s head – especially not when he has cerebral palsy, which should have been noticeable – nor at the elderly couple in the house. As soon as police enter a black suspect’s house al humanity and logical thinking seems to go out the door. Officers in Raleigh, and most elsewhere are in need of some serious ‘reprogramming’. I honestly don’t think all officers are racist but their response training has seriously compromised their thinking as has the culture in these Police Departments. I wouldn’t be surprised if this way of thinking included the African-American officers in these departments. Lots to be done here, ladies.

Tymier Tazewell and his sister’s story could well have a racist background, but also could be just a cover up by people who made the wrong decision of having Tymier suspended from the bus (for whatever wrong reason) and not being able to come back on it and thus only making matters worse with each action they take. The Furies need to sit down with this Principal and find out where all of this was coming from and then have him apologize sincerely to Tymier and his parents.

I agree with Pat. Now I am making a presumption that the kids harassing Tymier’s sister were never disciplined. My mother always reminded by brother and I that it takes two to tangle. At the very least, both parties should have been suspended from taking the bus. But even before that decision is made, both parties must give their story and then a decision made. The fact that Tymier walked to school in cold weather for 40 minutes each day suggests he is no slouch.

As far as the Clark’s are concerned, it seems that Raleigh NC police have the credo “if black, guilty until proven innocent”. To have an assault weapon pointed at a child and elderly adults is unacceptable. To have them outside in the cold just makes things worse.

The Furies have their work cut out for them.

Resist, Persist, Remove!!!

Lock HIM up!!!

Silence is Consent!!!

I strongly suspect that this would not have happened to a white kid, or family, he said, expressing the obvious!  Sadly, racism is rampant!  Bunch of bozos!

As for the first incident; no one in their right mind would put a child out in freezing weather and then make them sit on the ground. Totally out of line and they should all be held accountable. This is a nightmare no one should have to deal with.

Regarding the second incident: I can only bet the bullies were white. I can only guess that since Tymier didn't tell his parents right away, it was assumed he was the perpetrator and the school acted accordingly. We still don't know the outcome, though the school should be apologizing to Tymier and his sister for not bothering to investigate.

One thing the second incident brings to mind: it only takes one parent to change things, for good or bad. In this case, the bullies complained to their parents (I assumer) and the parents complained to the school, who did nothing to find out the truth of the matter. Agree with Mitchell; racism is rampant. Stupid stupid.

Thanks for the post, Joanne.
