I was seriously bullied by a guy at school in the fourth grade. I went home and told my mother. She told me to ignore it and he would stop. Well I tried to ignore it and it just got worse. I told my mom again and finally she did something. She went to the principal's office but nothing was done on the school side of things. My mom even called his mom and his mom hung up on her. I guess he eventually stopped but that didn't help him in adulthood. I read the local paper a few years after we graduated and he shot at a cop and was charged with attempted capital murder. A few years ago I ran into a girl who remembered the bullying and she said she heard he was in Huntsville doing a life sentence. Sure enough, I went to Texas prison website and looked up his name. He's in prison until 2021.
In memory of a wonderful actor who left us way too soon - William Holden 1918-1981.
