MIDDLETOWN, Ohio - Police have charged three students after they allegedly set a fellow student’s hair on fire while on a school bus.

Police say that on Friday afternoon, 15-year-old Devin Lewis was on the bus returning home from Middletown High School when three other students began harassing him.

“I was sitting in my seat listening to music, and the kids pulled my hood and earphones out, and the one sitting next to me pulled a lighter out and held it in front of my face backing my head up,” Lewis said. “One of the people behind me took their lighter, put it up to the back of my head and lit my head on fire.”

When Lewis arrived home, his mother, Stephanie McKeehan, quickly realized something was wrong when she smelled burnt hair and then saw the damage that had been done to the back of her son’s head. Furious, she called the school and met with the school principal, Dennis Newell.

“I was ready to hunt somebody down,” McKeehan laughed. “The redneck was going to come out in me definitely.”

Police were called and a male freshman and a male junior were charged with aggravated menacing. The junior was also charged with assault. Another junior was charged with obstructing official business. All three have been suspended for three days with a recommendation to be expelled, and all three were scheduled to appear in juvenile court sometime this morning.

Lewis has a message for other kids out there who, like himself, are bullied at school.

“It’s not right, and you shouldn’t have to go through it. Don’t just sit there and be quiet. That never gets it done. You got to speak up.”

    It’s frightening the lengths bullies will go anymore.

    In one article I read, the bus driver did pull over and threaten to expel the bullies from the bus, but apparently did nothing further. I have to wonder if the bus driver had any radios or guidance on dealing with violence of this order.

    At least in this story the school’s reaction was swift and appropriate.

    Probably because the modern connotation of “redneck” is of a person who is aggressively ignorant. I’m familiar with the origin of the term… and that’s not what this mother was referencing. In that respect, I agree with runawayuniverse. There’s nothing pride-worthy about being uncouth and uneducated with violent tendencies.

    That said, I don’t know this mother was expressing pride. The fact that she said the redneck was “going to come out” suggests she keeps it hidden most of the time. :P

    Burning hair is one of the worst smells ever! I know because one time after a 3 day bender I fell asleep with a curling iron in my hair.

    You know I claim the title “Redneck” in the forums Athena, and I remember at one time there was a rather in depth discussion on exactly what a redneck is, or was, although I don’t remember the term “aggressively ignorant”.

    Yes, us rednecks may lack culture and may be “uncouth” to some, but the rednecks like me would never look down their nose at someone else because they were different. We also stick up for what is right, and I’m guessing that’s what this mother was referring to. For that, yea, I’m proud.

    When people talk shit about other peoples upbringings and vocabulary choices it makes the redneck come out in me too. Thats a good mama there. Everybody sits here on these forums talking crap about how these kids parents sit back and don’t do nothin…well someone fucked with this womans baby and she was gonna kick some ass for it. If you ask me, more mothers should be ready to fuck someone up for their kids.

Stupid freakin’ kids; my daughter had some friends over for Super Bowl Sunday, all 14-15-16 YOs, and one of ‘em had a lighter. You BET I brought the redneck out and that kid didn’t see that lighter again ’til I handed it off to his mother… Heh.

    I don’t ever look down my nose at people who are different. I will, however, gaze down that slope all day at someone who takes pride in a lack of education (whether that education is formal or not is a non-issue).

    I understand that “redneck” seems to mean different things to different people. The problem arises, however, when your personal definition lacks any resemblance to the standard or generally understood definition. From Dictionary.com:

    red·neck? ?
    Informal: Often Disparaging .
    –noun
    1. an uneducated white farm laborer, especially from the South.
    2. a bigot or reactionary, especially from the rural working class.
    –adjective
    3. Also, red-necked . narrow, prejudiced, or reactionary: a redneck attitude.

    As you can see, the term “redneck” cannot be separated from the “bigot” and “prejudiced” connotations (the majority of online dictionaries list a similar definition). I understand why you’d want it to be, because over the years you’ve been here, I’ve not seen you be bigoted OR prejudiced. This is why I would implore you to describe yourself differently. To claim the redneck title is to falsely advertise yourself, in my opinion.

  • Athena

    Excuse me?!? Well, thank you for accurately portraying the listed definition of the term “redneck”.

    Reactionary? Check.

    Bigoted? “When people talk shit about other peoples upbringings and vocabulary choices it makes the redneck come out in me too.” Check.

    Uneducated? “Everybody sits here on these forums talking crap about how these kids parents sit back and don’t do nothin…” Check.

    Coyote’s no redneck. You, on the other hand…

    And, for the record, I can’t think of a single instance that would justify a parent “fuck up” a minor. Luckily, this mom’s redneck didn’t come out and, as a result, she did the right thing by contacting the school and the media. That’ll go a lot farther than fucking someone up. Bruises heal. A criminal record and some public humiliation lasts forever.

    I think it is hilarious that you called me uneducated. I probably have a much stronger higher education and literary transcript than you do, but you assuming I am uneducated doesn’t bother me. Why should I reply in technically correct English when I am making a point about my heritage? The best literary pieces in history contain improper grammar and slang, if it is good enough for Samuel Langhorne Clemens it’s good enough for me. (Bless your heart, I bet you had to google who that was)

    I didn’t say she should go kick some kids asses, I did say that it’s a good paternal instinct to want to. There is a difference.

    Have you ever talked to a New Yorker? They are reactionary, does that make them a redneck?

    I am not sure why me saying it irritates me for other people to be hateful towards a certain group of people makes me bigoted. I’m sure my circle of friends is much more open and diverse than yours is.

    Also, fuck yeah…I’m a redneck.

    You know what’s brilliant, Andy… If your post wasn’t made in direct response to mine, people would have NO IDEA who the hell you were talking about.

    I’m not “always attacking people with racial slurs”. I don’t have a “bandwagon”. I’ve never even referenced reparations or slavery on the front page, good or bad. In fact, I very vocally oppose Affirmative Action and hate crime legislation. And I find it HILARIOUS that you continually accuse my lilly-white ass (who is married to a white guy and just had a white child) of being racist… against my own race!

    Who’s trolling who now, Andy? Yesterday, you invoke my name in a thread I haven’t even responded to, and today you come after me with straight up delusions.

    …and all this from a guy who uses the term “zebra” to describe mixed kids in a derogatory manner and, when called on it, uses the cliche “I have black friends” defense. Do you even realize what a joke that is?

    I was pointing out to Coyote that the internationally recognized definition of “redneck” is not noble or kind, and does not describe her very well at all. Be proud of being Southern. Of being American. Of being hard-working or willing to stick up for yourself. But being a redneck is synonymous with being ignorant… and that’s not Coyote, or anything to be proud of.

    Thank you. Just because the negative connotation of a word is what is commonly accepted doesn’t mean it is right. The problem is people forget our origins and what our ancestors went through to get here. It is unacceptable to give up our own definition and pride in ourselves just because others see it negatively.

  • Athena

    Gosh. Now, why would I assume you’re uneducated when you speak with improper grammar? That’s the thing, Ms. Rebecca – you’re not writing a book, nor are you a fictional character (you’re going to have to delve a little deeper than Mark Twain to get my Google juices flowing – I was in Hannibal, Missouri less than a year ago). You’re speaking for yourself, and your manner of speech gives a significant first impression. I’m plenty educated (and not done yet) and it would be a lot easier for me to assume the same of you if you made possessive apostrophies a habit.

    As for the content of your initial reply to me, “If you ask me, more mothers should be ready to fuck someone up for their kids,” does not say to me, “I didn’t say she should go kick some kids asses, I did say that it’s a good paternal instinct to want to.” In fact, it’s entirely too ambiguous to make either point. I was stating my position… glad you clarified yours.

    I was not being hateful toward a particular group. I was being observant. Surely, having an interest in literature, you could understand how powerful connotation and stigma are and how useless it is to use a word in a way contrary to its definition. If what you say is true about your level of education and your diverse set of friends, by definition, YOU ARE NOT A REDNECK. I’m sorry (and confused) that this disappoints you.

    If you’ve got an issue with the definition of “redneck”, I recommend you take it up with the various publishers of dictionaries. I am only the messenger.

    “Rednecks were originally coal miners in West Verginia”

    Wrong, even if using the link YOU provided. Go back to that same link you posted, and scroll up just a little bit. Rednecks was originally a political term for “poor white farmers”. In the early 1900’s, poor white farmers were typically uneducated or under-educated and more often than not were extremely prejudiced.

    Coal miners later “appropriated both the term redneck and its literal manifestation, the red bandana”. They simply took a term that was already well-known and attempted to make it their own. That isn’t to say that Redneck has always been a negative term, but it wasn’t originally used by the coal miners.

  • Athena

    This is absolutely true – pro-union workers who were identified by the red bandanas they wore around their necks. The Battle of Blair Mountain was perhaps THE most impressive and progressive show of force against corporations in American history.

  • aka jas

    All that for a little hair burning!? It’ll grow back! Hang by the toes and whip eh? Geeze you people need to relax! Bunch of funky ass rednecks up in here. (LMAO)

  • Athena

    Actually, that’s true. I might argue that the Battle of Blair Mountain popularized the word, but, having not been around back then, I can’t say that with any certainty.

  • Athena

    That sounds great, the fact of the matter is that definitions evolve and current perception is reality.

    I was simply trying to bring that perception into light, pointing out that this particular perception is so pervasive that it has become a part of the official definition. I wasn’t trying to disparage Southerners or whatever else. I was only trying to explain why someone would say that being a redneck is nothing to be proud of (how this conversation got started) and how Coyote should pick some other more accurate label.

    For God knows why, other people decided to take this personally. The reasons people pick to get offended never ceases to amaze me.

    It makes me very sad to see the lengths that bullying has gotten to in the past 10 years. When I was in high school, we didn’t run around shooting each other, setting each other on fire, killing each other, stalking, and all the other bullshit that kids do now. Now, granted, if two kids didn’t like each other, they might have a fight, but that was about the end of it generally. If you didn’t like someone, you stayed away from each other. With that being said, y’all calm down. It is the internet, who cares who is smarter than whom, and who can use spell check and grammar better. This isn’t a job interview you are attending or a resume you are typing, it is a silly forum post.

    Yes, I realize that the miners were called rednecks because of the red bandanas. The bandanas were also borrowed from the farmers for whom the term was originally used.

    On a serious note, fucked up bullying has been going on for as long as kids have been attending school together. The guns issue has been going on for more than 30 years. I went to a pretty chill high school and it sounds like you did too. But that doesn’t mean this shit wasn’t going on elsewhere back then.

  • Parrot Toes

    I went to high school in a tiny speck of a town that combined high school with a neighbouring tiny speck (but slightly bigger) of a town in the 80’s. I was bullied severely myself. I remember knife fights (not with me) and gang beatings.

    One time, on a school bus, there was this guy in front of me who had cerebral palsy and epilepsy. He was minding his own business, listening to his hip walkman, when a few guys from my town started tormenting him. The goal was to induce an epileptic attack. It had been done by others and for some reason, idiots thought it amusing. Somewhere from inside of me I mustered up enough courage to tell them to fuck off and leave him alone, loudly. I was actually blown away that they listened (it was one of my proudest moments).

    Damn right this shit happened “when we were young”. I think the difference today is that there are more of these idiot bullies because they know they can get away with it for multiple reasons AND it seems that many parents have lost the ability to teach their children how to respect other peoples feelings, in my opinion any way.

    There’s not anything wrong with being a farmer and being poor.
    Farm work is hard, dangerous at times and obviously belittled. My grandfather had 75 acres 50 head of cattle and raised tobacco back in the day. I spent every summer on his farm. I cut tobacco and helped the guys cure it by hanging it up on the rafters of a barn, picked rocks out of the garden, picked beans, corn, tomatoes, hilled potatoes- fed cattle and God forbid chickens (hence my hatred for chickens). I also happen to be a girl- I’d hate to have to depend on the land to make a living now as an adult with things the way they are today.
    I just had to defend farmers when you work hard (physically demanding work in particular) all day to keep what you earned it tends to harden you a bit both inside and out.

    Completely aside from the heated discussion by, for and about rednecks, I’m wondering how the bus driver missed someone’s hair being lit on fire on his bus. And why nothing was done about it if he did notice. I would be wanting to drag it all in front of the principal too, but I’d have had the bus driver’s ass right there along with him.

  • Shauna Olsen

    I have to wonder what these three bullies would have done had that kids clothes ignited? You never know, it could have happened. Would they think themselves funny still? I have to say that the mother did the right thing in going to the school and media and not getting violent and getting arrested herself. In the end these immature jerks will get their “karma”. About the whole argument about rednecks….WOW! My step dad considered himself a redneck but more out of a joke since his neck was red from sun burn from working outside in his job. We got a laugh out of it cause it was true! The main fact here is that three juviniles intentionally set another kids hair on fire with not one worry about possible serious injury to him or others. That is scary.

  • melb1970

    If people don’t choose to react aren’t they just allowing themselves to become victims?
    Isn’t bullying about belittling/ beating someone into behaving the way you expect them too?
    When people don’t chose to stand up for themselves even if it’s by pushing their oppressor into a corner aren’t they contributing to their victimization?
    I think redneck is one of those words like the n-word (which I won’t type because someone will get mad) if we use it to describe ourselves it’s ok but if someone else uses redneck/n###er it’s not ok. IMHO

    “What was the bus driver do while this was happening?”

    – probably driving the bus

    Things like that can be over in an instant. It’s not like the bus driver can have full attention on the road AND every single kids at all times. If they want that to happen, they should have a bus driver and a bus monitor. One to drive and one to handle the kids. They aren’t miracle workers and sure don’t get paid like one. They take on the duty or making sure your kids get to school and home every day. If the bus driver did do something, they’d probably get fired. No one can win anymore. We all live in fear of our jobs or of getting sued. I hate to say it, but I’d rather have someone’s hair get burned a little than have the bus driver freak out and flip the bus in an intersection in order to calm shit down. You can’t always just pull over or stop the bus.

    I hope those little shits pay for what they did and have parents who care like this boy’s mother does. Parents that care enough to kick their son’s balls up into their stomachs. It’s a different kind of love…

  • Athena

    Since I can’t refer to yours, Ms. Rebecca, I’ll refer to my own:

    Athena is my name, not simply a forum handle – and she was the goddess of war, wisdom (generally in regard to strategy) AND useful arts and crafts. But I still can’t crochet, unfortunately.

    If you chose to be insulted, it was just that – a choice. Unless you are uneducated and prejudiced, I did not insult you. It’s as nonsensical as a skinny girl being insulted by being called fat. If she’s not fat, why be insulted? Again, whether you accept it or not, rednecks are, BY DEFINITION, bigoted and prejudice.

    I was simply pointing this out. If you are not these things, you are not a redneck. I can’t change the definition. It’s not up to me.

    I’m very sorry that you’re dying for this word to mean something other than that which is widely accepted. I wish you and all self-ascribed “rednecks” the best of luck in changing the definition, which has been derogatory in nature since its inception (it really is similar to “nigger” in its history). But, please understand that, until you are successful, describing yourself as a “redneck” will say something about you to those outside your circle which you do not mean. Why do you think that runawayuniverse said what they said? Because, beyond “redneck” circles, “redneck” is a bad word. It’s derogatory. And to be so attached to it is beyond me. It’s like me believing “bitch” is something other than derogatory and fighting to use the word in a way contrary to its usage.

    Standing up for ones self is completely different from being “reactionary”, which is generally a negative term, similar to “knee-jerk” or non-thinking.

    I do agree, though, that “redneck” is similar to “nigger”, as I stated in an above post. Here’s the problem, though – “nigger” says something bad about a black person outside of black circles. I implore black folk to not use that word to describe themselves because, no matter how positive they want the word to be, it was created by people who thought they were better than you to make fun or disparage you. There’s no making that word – be it “nigger” or “redneck” – beautiful and noble.

I don’t remember ever thinking of going to the cops or the principal for anything. Not because you would be tattling, but we just dealt with that crap ourselves, one way or another.

    @Tundratot,
    In my kids school district, the drivers have radios to communicate with the bus terminal AND have a written protocol to follow for such circumstances. In an incident like this, their protocol would have been to halt the bus have the terminal contact the police.

    Now, whether or not drivers FOLLOW this protocol is another story…
