Father Forces Son to Hold Pink "I am a Bully" Sign on Texas Highway

by at .  Updated at . Comments

A Texas dad made his son hold a pink sign declaring "I am a bully" on the side of a local highway because he says frankly, "we don’t need another Columbine.”

When Jose Lagares found out that his son got in trouble for bullying in his fourth grade class, he sent the boy out to a major intersection to make his point.

KCEN captured the video of the fourth grader holding a pink sign that read: “I am a bully. Honk if you hate bullies.” People did, early and often, that day.

“Bullying is also a form of public humiliation,” Lagares told the station. “Maybe he understands that when he humiliates someone publicly that doesn’t feel good.”

“Hopefully the next time he tries to bully someone he’ll think about it twice.”

In an interview after the story gained attention, Lagares said that he had received his share of negative criticism, but he did not regret punishing his son.
