Prior Lake dad uses YouTube to share the bullying his daughter in going through

This is unbelievable. Just sickening. If you have a child at Prior Lake High School or live in the city, demand the district expel these bullies. Prior Lake High School Phone: (952) 226-8600

A Prior Lake father is calling out his daughter’s bullies on YouTube, Snapchat evidence and racist voicemails included.

In a nearly 6-minute YouTube video, father Brad Knudson opens by saying his words aren’t scripted, but they’re emotional.

“We have a very beautiful African American daughter that we were very fortunate enough to adopt 11 years ago. We’ve dealt with a little bit of racism, you know, stares, things like that when she calls us mom or dad, but she didn’t notice so we just blew it off because it was directed towards us,” he says in the video.

However, on New Year’s Eve, Knudson says a set of twin freshman girls from Prior Lake High School sent his daughter a few Snapchats, smartphone video messages that disappear after they’re viewed. Knudson said his daughter’s friend, who was with her at the time, brought the incident to his attention, and upon receiving the fourth Snapchat, he and his wife recorded it with their own phones. In the Snap, the speaker calls the recipient “such a slut, “a n*****,” and a “fat a** b****.”

Upset and aware of the destructive behavior bullying can prompt, Knudson called the twins’ parents, left messages on their home phone, went to their house, but couldn’t get in touch with them. Then, he went to the police. Police at Prior Lake High School apparently talked to the girls and the parents, who issued their cell phone number. Knudson called the twins’ father, Deron Puro, who told Knudson the explicit language was commonly used around his house and didn’t think much of it, Knudson says in his YouTube video.

A voicemail, apparently from Puro, said the following:

“Yeah, Brad, tides have turned, huh? I guess you’re n***** lover. Call me back.”

He called back, told Puro he planned to post about their correspondence, and Puro allegedly told him that was fine.

The Knudsons want to put an end to racist bullying and the emotional damage it can cause.

“I just had to get this off my chest, I just don’t know what to do, other than say I love my daughter and I don’t want her committing suicide because of this,” Knudson said.

Boy asks Santa to make kids stop bullying his sister


The financially struggling single mother of fraternal twins recently asked her 8-year-olds to write down a list of things they would like from Santa.

Suffern felt tears fill her eyes as she read her son’s letter asking Santa to help stop the bullying his overweight sister was experiencing at school.

Ryan-and-Amber-Letter-to-SantaKids can be so cruel.

Karen Klein bus monitor bully video reminds me of Casey Heynes story

A video of a 68-year-old school bus monitor being mercilessly taunted by seventh-graders became a rallying point against bullies Thursday, with a fund for the New York state grandmother raising more than $400,000 and a deluge of people demanding harsh punishment for the boys. Karen Klein, 68, of Greece, N.Y., gets verbally assaulted brutally in the video below. It is hard to watch.

It reminds me of the bullying story of Casey Heynes from 2011. Remember him? He was the Australian boy who snapped and slammed his pint-sized bully to the ground after being punched in the face. Here is a painful interview with Casey where he explains the torment he endured.

I wish Karen Klein would have been able to body slam some of her abusers too. These kids deserve every bit of retaliation they get from this incident.

Bullying or Assault? Australian boy fights back

A new video has emerged featuring an Australian boy named Casey ‘Little Zangief’ Heynes standing up to a school bully.

Heynes, a pupil at Chifley College Dunheved’s Campus in New South Wales, first takes a punch in the face from a smaller kid named Richard Gale, but avoids fighting until it’s obvious the attack is not going to stop.

Heynes grabs his bully, picks him up and delivers a stunning piledriver into the merciless asphalt.

Both kids were suspended.

First off, I applaud this kid for standing up for himself. He will do fine in life, and this was a good learning lesson for that tiny dipwad who started it.

Bullying has become topic du jour across the U.S. lately. When I was a boy in school, fights like this happened on a regular basis. It is a problem. After this video came out, I heard teachers commenting that the bigger boy should not have fought back and that there is never a reason for violence. I think that is bullshit. Teachers who say this are being a bit ridiculous. Richard Gale needed to get stomped, and I am glad he got what was coming.

There is a difference between bullying and assault. Casey Heynes was assaulted here. He defended himself after showing amazing constraint. His parents should go to the police and file charges. The school should expel the antagoniser.

I believe YouTube has pulled this video now. Try watching here on CBS.
