PEEKSKILL, N.Y. – A couple in New York have gotten themselves into some trouble after they tried resolving a bullying problem by holding down a 10-year-old girl so that their twin 7-year-old daughters could hit her.

Police say Samuel Randolph, 25, and Latena Fitzgerald, 26, came to the Peekskill’s Kiley Youth Center with their girls to confront a girl who they say was bullying their girls and try to put a stop to it.

Going by the news reports and the charges that were filed against the couple, things didn’t go exactly as planned.

“The 10-year-old alleges she was held by the mother of the other girls, and the parents allowed their two daughters to assault her while she was being held,” Peekskill Police Chief Gene Tumolo said.

The girl also says that Randolph hit her in the back with a chair before the facility’s staff were able to break up the fight. Fitzgerald says she never touched the girl and simply told her to leave her kids alone.

She said that she and Randolph, who works at the center, have repeatedly talked to the alleged bully and her mom about the issue to no avail. So Randolph told the girls to do the same thing I told my son in a similar situation; hit back and that would be the end of it.

But after yet another altercation between her daughter and the older girl, an altercation described as “minor” by officials, Fitzgerald decided to confront the girl herself.

She says things escalated because the girl got out her chair and slapped her daughter right in front of them. If that’s true, I’m not gonna lie. If an older kid slapped my 7-year-old in front of me, there’s a good chance I would be serving time in jail while paying for a kid’s dental work.

Not because I flew into a rage or anything, my fist plowing into the kid’s face would just be an immediate, reflexive action.

No one was injured in the melee, but police felt that they had enough evidence to charged the couple with child endangerment.

Because everyone involved lives in the same public housing complex, the couple have sent their daughters to live with other family while Randolph waits to see if he still has a job.

    The 10yo was demonstrating a strong need for someone to step up and show her where the boundaries are. Corporal punishment would have been the most appropriate response.

    well,  not that I totally agree.but many parents are getting sick of bullies picking on their children.When the schools and the law don’t do their jobs to remedy the situation. I can understand how many parents can get really pissed over it.I hate bullies myself.

  • LeaveMeBe

    I’m with Morbid on this one. I would never conciously smack a kid. If an older bigger kid had ever hit either of my children right in front of me instinct would’ve taken over before my brain could engage. When my son was in 2nd grade, a 4th grade girl on his school bus choked him from behind, literally using the seat for leverage so he couldn’t break away, because she thought she heard him making fun of her when it was actually another boy who was in front of him. It took 4 other kids to free him. When he got home, he came in crying and I could literally see the hand prints on his neck. I managed to go outside and stop the bus before it left the complex to talk to the bus driver. I made sure I stayed on the ground and didn’t touch the bus. As I was speaking to the driver, who didn’t understand what I was saying because he only spoke Spanish, the little beast came forward, walked to the bottom step and began screaming at me and spitting on me. The driver did nothing. I finally told her to shut-up and go back and sit down because I was sorely tempted to snatch her off the bus and spank her butt. (To this day I don’t know how I had that much self-control). After all was said and done and investigated by the principal, I got a call and she said that video and interviews corroborated my son’s story but was told that they had talked to the girl and her parents and were declining to impose consequences, such as kicking her off the school bus for the rest of the year, because it would create a hardship for her family. I said OK, then I’ll file a report with the PD for assault with bodily harm because even though my son was the victim in all of this we would suffer hardships and I wouldn’t tolerate that and then I hung up on her. Two minutes later she called me back with news of the girl’s expulsion from the school bus. The same girl attempted to bully my son in school for what had happened, pushing, shoving and spitting on him but when his 1st grade sister got wind of it she took care of things, first in a bathroom, then on the playground, before I ever got to make a phone call to the school. :)

    my son dealt with this shit forever and i tried everything and now in the same school a friend is dealing with it also..i hate to say this but get a lawyer and file a lawsuit against the school for not protecting your child..bullying is against the law these days and that is the only way they listen..when you sue them..it’s sad

    i had a similar issue..it was memorial day or labor day and they had the flags at the bus stop and one kid decided to take the flag out of the ground and poke my son in the back and break skin, i was told to move my bus stop..i couldn’t even believe it

    Kids these days can be big… I know at 10 I was even bigger than I am now (As in chubby lol,maybe shorter by like an inch or two though.I was 145 at that age, now i’m about 110 lbs)   So I agree with Morbid, I don’t even HAVE children, but  if I saw someone bigger than my child picking on them and trying to victimize them, you better believe that natural instinct to protect would probably kick in before my common sense did, lol .
     I think this is fair, considering no one had any injuries from the incident, it shows the 10 year old what it’s like to be picked on by someone bigger than them.
    And maybe, just maybe, that 10 year old will think twice before trying to act out and bully someone. I personally hope they’ve been scared shitless lol.

    Heheh, I love how the sister stepped up. Sometimes a little sibling-schoolyard justice is called for ;)  your story definately made me smile. and you have some great self control, kudos for that lol. I can’t imagine how much self restraint it would take for me not to wrap my hands around her throat and squeeeeeze if the little bitch who choked out my son showed her face then attempted to spit on me. I’m only 19 myself, but what the fuck is WRONG with this generation? jesus.

    once at football practice the “popular” kid decided to take my son by his helmet and flip him onto the ground the mother came over and i told her she needs to talk to her kid she said “i can’t  help it if my boy has alot of fans..umm i mean friends” i said these aren’t friends they side with your bully because he’s bigger and when he isn’t around my son doesn’t get treated this way and he always forgave instead of hold a grudge…

    First off the bully’s parents need to pay her some attention cause the kid doesn’t even know to be discreet. We all know you’re supposed to wait until there are no adults so that no one can place the blame.

    Second, these people did what every parent of a bullied child dreams of. And third, I would take my punishment & then call a lawyer cause that lil’ bastard spat on me too so I’m fucking giving her a free trip in a pop cruiser to Juvie.

    “I’m not gonna lie. If an older kid slapped my 7-year-old in front of me,
    there’s a good chance I would be serving time in jail while paying for a
    kid’s dental work.”

    I was at a birthday party with my kids and one of my boys was playing in another room with another boy (whom they never met) and I looked in to see him punching my kid in the stomach – not full force, but enough to where my kid was like “wtf is this kid doing” and trying to get away. I snapped and was like “EXCUSE ME?!?! GET YOUR HANDS OFF HIM!” as I grabbed his arm- this little bastard (of about 7 – my kids just turned 8) was like – “he told me too” (in a snarky attitude voice) I gave him the death stare and said “don’t you DARE lay another hand on him.”  Of course the kids mother wasn’t there – she just dropped him off and bolted (free babysitting- yay :|  ) and he was a royal pain the whole time. I was livid. Even another mom was like “good job!”. I’m not an idiot and  I know my kids aren’t saints- but I also know that they wouldn’t ask to be punched.

    Thanks for making me think this late, Morbid! Of course as a parent, who wouldn’t want to punish the bully and give them a taste of their own medicine? Especially after complaining didn’t work?  An adult holds down a child to get smacked by another child or two? What a good role model! Oh wait a minute, he worked where it all happened! Way to go, Dad. Let’s not forget everyone lived at the same place, too. Hmm.

    When my son was 7 (he’s 12 now) a 12 year old boy on our street kept picking on him, pushing him down, shoving sticks in the spokes of his bike when he rode by to make him crash, etc.  I spoke to his parents, etc., with no results.  I even tried talking to my son about defending himself because at the time his 5 year old sister was getting up in the kid’s face after each incident while my son came in and went immediately into his room (what can I say, my daughter never did take any shit, but my son used to be very tender-hearted).  Finally, one day I heard the bully yell “go back inside Killian (that’s my son’s name) I told you not to show up out here” when my son walked outside to play and I just freaking lost it.  I walked out and got the little fucker by the front of his shirt and made him cry.  I was a school teacher at the time and I’m damn lucky his parents didn’t call the cops on me.  But the little bastard left my son alone.  I however had to deal with “cunt” and “whore” being written in the dust on my minivan for the next year or so.  Small price to pay.  Figured it gave my van some street cred…

    Lol! I loved the “squeeeeeeze” part. And I do have to say, I never catergorize and blame a whole generation. I knew and know a lot of engaging and polite kids who are in your age range. My 18 yo daughter & 19 yo son are adored by all the adults they know. As for how they are with me, mostly it’s grand, but there have been a few times I can understand why animals in the wild eat their young. ;)

    Anti-bullying laws are useless bullshit- they’re never enforced. Parents, this is dangerous territory, as taking the law into one’s hands will result in the same problems Ms. Fitzgerald is now facing. Do it legally- call the police and insist the child is arrested for assault, then get a lawyer and file assault charges against the parents who probably beat the shit out of their precious little punk to turn him or her into a bully. It’s sad that defending one’s self is illegal nowadays, so the best course of action is the legal system.

    Being a mom, I know firsthand the frustration of childhood dramas. And being a parent one needs to know when it is and isn’t okay to step in. And when we DO step in we have to know how to handle ourselves. But it is hard, these kids is bad as hell. And we want to protect our children in any and every way we can….Hard to be mad at some of these parents I have seen taking certain “drastic” measures. It is all fine and good until the shoe is on the other foot and it’s one of our own children involved in either the bullying….or the wrath of the other parent.

  • wyrosjr

    Kids are happier and more well adjusted when they have structure and boundaries. The 10yo was obviously too far gone for some other kind of intervention to be successful. I simply don’t understand why they seek to chip at the rights of parents to use corporal punishment.

    I don’t know that “they” are actually seeking “to chip at the rights of parents to use corporal punishment.” Other than the grandma who also took a hose to her grandson (which speaks to a loss of temper more than thoughtful discipline), we don’t generally hear about parents being arrested for spanking their kids. 

    In this case, I was talking about spanking someone else’s kid though, which I’m generally against. But if your ten year old slaps a seven year old in front of me, and it’s part of an ongoing problem, I will spank them, and will defend myself to a jury of my peers if I have to. If (god forbid!) my child did that, and you spanked them, I would spank them AGAIN when they got home and then make the little brat wash your car for a month.
