I just saw read a sad story about a girl with cerebral palsy who has been bullied by a man and his son;
"Stop, please," a tearful Hope Holcomb says in a TV news segment. "Try to be nice."
Holcomb, a 10-year-old from East Sparta, Ohio, who has cerebral palsy, was pleading for her neighbors to stop bullying her. Disturbing video first aired by Fox 8 shows next-door dad William Bailey and his 9-year-old son appearing to imitate the girl's limping shuffle. Holcomb's parents, Tricia and Michael Knight, say the incident caps a pattern of torment, and they're pursuing charges of aggravated menacing against the Baileys.
There seems to be a lot of discord between the two families, but it doesn't excuse their behavior towards this little girl. Have you ever had to deal with a situation like this?
