Defending one's daughter is not a crime — James Willie Jones Stormed Fla. School Bus to Defend Disabled Daughter, Gets Arrested. A local broadcast news story — Father Storms Onto A San Francisco School Bus And Threatens To Kill Students & Bus Driver. Mr. Jones' statement — Dad Who Stormed Bus, Threatened Kids Apologizes:
- As a dad, my No. 1 priority is providing for and protecting my children. Since the school year started, my wife and I noticed that our daughter had become increasingly distraught about school and riding the school bus, but she wouldn’t tell us exactly why.
As the involved parent of a child who suffers from cerebral palsy, it broke my heart. When I walked my daughter to the bus that morning, she broke down in tears and finally told me about the bullies who had tormented her on the school bus. She was afraid.
In the heat of the moment, I wanted to confront the individuals who had bullied my daughter and the authority figure who failed to protect her. I sincerely apologize for my inappropriate use of language and for the way I handled the situation. As the protector of my daughter I could not stand by and helplessly watch her suffer.
