You know after multiple meetings with police, school officials, parents, and still the assaults continue, what Dad would not go "Bezerker" on a group of Male teens? This Father did what any Father did, to protect his child, possibibly fearing if this continued his child would commit suicide over being constantly bullying, and now all of the sudden Police act! Against the Father., There is no Justice!
BOWMANVILLE -- Dave Clarke lost it Monday night. But the angry family man now charged with assaulting a 15-year-old pleads guilty with an explanation.
And under the circumstances, what would you have done?
The 45-year-old father of two has been closely following our recent series of stories on bullying. Like hundreds of other readers, these tales have struck a chord because his daughter Heather has been going through months of harassment by a group of kids at Bowmanville High School.
Clarke has been in and out of meetings with the school's administration and even had a sit-down with the police to address his concerns. One of the teens involved has been suspended twice, once for lying in wait for his daughter and whipping a handful of coins at her head.
