Must bullying come to this? Mother Who Gave Gay Son Stun Gun to Fend Off High School Bullies Says She Had No Choice

Carrying a stun gun in school is not kosher.  It is banned.

But, the mother of an openly-gay 17-year old student armed her son with a stun gun because of continued bullying at school and wanted to protect her son from harm.

The boy, Darnell “Dynasty” Young has been the victim of continuous anti-gay bullying since he came out including rocks and other objects being thrown at him and  name-calling. The school principal’s staff had suggested Young to tone it (flamboyance) down to stop the bullying.

His mom took the matter into her own hands and armed her child with a stun gun to protect himself.

When the boy was almost attacked, he brandished to stun gun to scare his oppressors which had worked but resulted in the boy getting arrested and suspended from the school.

However, the kids who bullied him have not been disciplined at all.

When asked if she (Chelsea Grimes – the boy’s mother) would do what she did again even now that her child faces expulsion from the school, she responded:

“I do not promote violence — not at all — but what is a parent to do when she has done everything that she felt she was supposed to do … at the school?  I did feel like there was nothing else left for me to do, but protect my child.””

What do you think?  Who’s right on this issue?
