When I heard this story initially I was shocked. I thought that this was nothing more than over reacting from an over protective parent. But as I read the details I began to see things a little differently.
A Wisconsin father has filed a restraining order against a 5-year-old boy he says has been bullying his daughter.
Brian Metzgerwhose daughter attends kindergarten at Prairie Lane Elementary School in Pleasant Prairie, told the local media that the boy has been harassing his daughter the whole year.
The girl claims the boy said to her "I want to slit your throat and watch it bleed," according to Metzger.
Metzger said he filed a police report and filed for a restraining order after the boy kicked the girl in the face and threw rocks and sand at her.
The father says that he took out the restraining order because the school was not doing enough to help his daughter.
"They've kept him in the same classroom with my daughter throughout this until recently because I showed up with a restraining order."
Metzger also said other students in the school were having trouble with the same boy.
Kenosha Unified School District spokeswoman Tanya Ruder told WISN she could not comment on the specifics of the case, but stated, "There's always two sides to every story."
Metzger says that he's received some criticism for his decision, and that people have asked him why he didn't just contact the boy's parents.
"If they knew the facts, they'd know the parents have been contacted by the school," he said.
If this little boy really did threaten to slit a little girls throat, and attack her, this concerned father had ever right to get a restraining order. This child is clearly disturbed, and the fact that the school system was slow to respond speaks to the rampant ineptitude within that system. God help those who will have to deal with this unhinged little boy if he goes untreated and grows into an unhinged full grown man.
