He Beat Up A Bully That Tormented Him For YEARS, What His Mom Said….

Sometimes you need to take a stand.

A mom in Missouri is not apologizing for backing up her son’s decision to fight back against a bully. Allison Davis’ son Drew has been suspended from school after he laid out a kid who had been bullying him since middle school.

Davis from Springfield, Missouri, shared how proud she was of her son, who stood up for himself. His son, Drew, and his younger brother, who was 11, were on the bus when the young lad decided to take matters into his own hand to protect the both of them.

Her Facebook post has attracted lots of attention, notably for her stance that the school and the bully are both in the wrong, and that her son using physical violence to solve a problem was in the right.

In her post which has been shared more than 145K times, Davis describes in chilling detail the years of abusive treatment her son endured from taunting to threats at the hands of his bully, some of which were caught on video, and the school refused to intervene.

Drew didn’t just randomly get violent with this other student. His mom says the punch came after years of asking adults for help.

“For years the school has failed Drew. When this kid has constantly threatened to beat Drew up along with several of his friends, the school did nothing,” she wrote. “When this kid followed Drew down the hall threatening him and making fun of him AND it was all captured on video, the school did nothing.”

In fact, other kids even went to teachers and administrators that the kid was threatening Drew, but his mom said that wasn’t enough to get the school to stop it.

“When this kid took to social media, voicemails, and texting threats, the school did nothing,” she wrote. “When this kid threatened Drew over and over in every class they have together. The school did nothing.”

According to AWM:

The problem did not go away. Drew became so disappointed in the school’s response that he lost hope. He quit talking to the adults at the school and did not bother reporting the abuses he suffered because he knew nothing was going to be done about them.

Then, Drew took matters into his own hands. The bully approached him on the school bus and threatened Drew’s eleven-year-old brother and his father. That was the final straw that broke the camel’s back.

Drew punched the bully three times and made him cry. In response to the attack, Drew’s school punished him for getting revenge on his bully. He was sentenced to five days of out-of-school suspension and made to suffer like he was the one who had done wrong because he had reached a boiling point with the bully’s behavior.

This left Drew with a hefty suspension, but his mom isn’t angry at him. Instead, she’s mad at the school for letting things escalate. 

“Not even a little bit,” Davis said unapologetically. “I know as a parent I’m suppose[d] to be upset with him for resorting to violence or getting suspended but I’m not.”

Many online are beyond proud of Drew for standing up for himself when the adults wouldn’t and are oozing with praise.

“I always say. Tell a teacher, tell the school, and then… handle it if you have too,” one person commented on the post. “He did nothing wrong and hopefully, the school teaches bystanders to start standing up for the person being bullied.”

Another commenter also pointed out the sad statistics of bullying. “So glad he took care of himself. Too often we hear of the child who hurts himself and even kills themselves to get out of it. He did the right thing. Be proud.”

“Good job, Drew. I’m so sorry it had to come to that. One of the reasons I don’t do children’s social work anymore is because I was tired of seeing my kids and their parents do things the ‘right’ way to no end,” another commenter posted.

Sometimes, you have to speak to a bully in the only language they understand. We’re often taught that violence is never the answer, but self-defense laws exist for a reason.
