Jamie Rathburn, a South Carolina mother, was arrested last month for going into her son’s elementary school and confronting his homophobic bullies. She claims the bullies called her son “gay” and “stupid,” but that her concerns were dismissed by the school. The mother entered the school without permission and confronted a group of third grade children, as well as a teacher.

Beforehand she posted a video on Facebook saying she was going to the school, which prompted someone to alert the police. Rathburn said, according to Fox 32: “He was told that he was ugly, that he was stupid, nobody cared, and he was called gay, he was cussed out, and when he reported those things he was told to ignore it.”  She claimed the school had told her the behaviour was “boys playing rough.”

Nurse re-arrested by police investigating baby deaths

Nurse re-arrested by police investigating baby deaths A nurse has been re-arrested by police investigating the deaths of a number of babies at the Countess of Chester Hospital's neo-natal unit. Lucy Letby, 28, was arrested on suspicion of murder in July last year in relation to the deaths of eight babies and the attempted murder of another six. She was released on bail pending further inquiries.

Posts on the page, and on Rathburn’s Facebook page, are largely supportive.

According to Fox 32, Rathburn’s son will not be allowed to return to the school but will be attending another in the same district.

(GoFundMe) Rathburn wrote on her Facebook page that she would be attending a court date soon, and Greenville News reported that she had publicly apologised but had received a “no trespassing notice”, meaning she is no longer allowed on the school property.

“Maybe in her mind she was going there to confront a bully or a couple of children, but in not knowing who those were and choosing to yell at dozens of innocent kids, there is nothing appropriate about yelling at other people’s children’s in a school setting after you’ve snuck in illegally,” Beth Brotherton, director of communications for the Greenville school district where the incident happened, told Fox 32.
