TEMECULA, Ca. – The mother of a high school student in Temecula shared her story about the bullying against her son after a child bullied at a Moreno Valley school died earlier this week.
Bridget Waters said that her son Nolan, a cancer patient, was attacked in the boys bathroom at Great Oaks High School in Temecula around 2 weeks ago. Waters said that the child knew that her son has a shunt in his brain as a result of cancer but still attacked him. Nolan an 18-year-old student knew that if he hit the other student, an 11th grader back, he would have been put at fault being that he was an adult.
Waters said that another boy stood by to watch while Nolan was hit in the face numerous times. “The tragedy is the school suspended both kids equally,” said Waters. “The bully got away with it all, no consequences for bullying!” His mother said that his injuries could have been as serious as the 13-year-old boy from Moreno Valley who died on Wednesday as a result of bullying. Waters said that rather than listening, the Vice Principal of the school mocked her son and said that he “provoked the fight”.
She said that he son told teachers as well as other staff letting him know of the impending threat, but no one took him seriously. “This kid who attacked Nolan has been bullying him for over a year, slapping him in the head, startlingly him, preventing him from leaving his classroom,” said said. She fears for his safety and is dissatisfied with the school districts response to the issue. “A parent doesn’t even have the right to press charges only the DA can decide. The only witnesses were the bully’s friends in the bathroom,” she said.
