1st grader faces sexual harassment charge for punching another boy in the groin. Mom says the other kid choked her son, and says if you consider the punch to be sexual assault, then you need to charge the other boy with attempted murder

1st-grader faces sexual harassment complaint

 

BOSTON -- The mother of a Boston elementary school first-grader being investigated for possible sexual harassment for punching another boy in the groin says her son acted in self-defense.

Tasha Lynch said Thursday the other boy had choked her son on a school bus and stolen his gloves late last month.

She tells The Boston Globe her 7-year-old son reacted in an attempt to protect himself.

A spokesman for Boston public schools confirmed an investigation but refused to discuss specifics of the incident or why it has been classified as a possible case of sexual harassment.

Lynch says because her son punched the other boy in the groin, school officials say they consider it sexual assault. She counters that the other boy should be charged with attempted murder for choking her son.

When I rode the bus as a kid, we had to sit in our seats and make as little noise as we could.  If we misbehaved on the bus we got a warning and had to go see the principal and our parents were called.  A second infraction got not only a phone call to our parents but we weren't allowed back on the bus to go home, our parents had to pick us and we were suspended from the bus for three days after as well.  A third time meant you were no longe able to ride the bus.   Your parents had to find alternative transportation for you if they couldn't take you.  I think we need to go back to those days.
