Another School Year, Another Bullying Story


School has just started and already a story is starting to make national attention. On one of the first days of school in Yazoo, Mississippi a girl brandished a gun at a bus full of students, saying to them that it was due to being picked on. According to WAPT television:

A 14-year-old girl brought the gun onto a Yazoo County school bus Sept. 1 because she had been picked on, the sheriff said. 

The girl walked up and down the aisle of the bus with the loaded gun, threatening students, according to video taken from a surveillance camera mounted on the bus.

Relatives of the 14-year-old girl said she was bullied by children on the bus — specifically, her family said, by Kaleb Eulls and his younger sisters. Eulls wrestled the gun from the girl and has gained national attention as a hero. 

“I feel like if you are in school to get your education, you shouldn’t be bullied,” the girl’s cousin Royquita Dixon said. “There are two sides to every story.” A 14-year-old girl brought the gun onto a Yazoo County school bus Sept. 1 because she had been picked on, the sheriff said.

Here’s the video of the incident:

One of the football players stopped the situation and was made a hero by the town and school. But the girl’s parents have a different feeling on the situation. WAPT goes on to talk about their response to what their daughter did:

Is this another case of a child who was bullied breaking, feeling alone and taking matters into their own hands? Why would a 14 year old girl do this? Certainly a disturbing case and the factor of bullying being the excuse for the gun is one that we’ll have to follow as the young lady goes to trial.
