Oswego, NY - Here’s another story involving a mother enticing her daughter to fight her alleged bully. This time it’s out of New York, where 40-year-old Amie Loughrey was captured on camera egging on a fight between her 15-year-old daughter and another girl.
Police got involved after the video was posted on someone’s Facebook. In the video, you can see Loughrey encouraging her daughter to fight another girl who had supposedly been harassing her. The victim consistently says she does not want to fight, but Loughrey’s daughter throws the first punch at the insistence of her loud-mouthed mother, just like another mom we featured today.
Throughout the fight, in which Loughrey’s daughter definitely gets the upper-hand, Loughrey can be heard yelling choice bits like “beat her fucking ass” and calling the victim a stupid bitch. After Loughrey’s daughter delivers a sound beating on the other girl, who suffered a flurry of punches, a kick to the face, and being spat on, the girl walks away as Loughrey shouts after her not to come back because “this is her block.”
Amie Loughrey was arrested and charged with endangering the welfare of a child and second-degree harassment. Her daughter will be charged as a juvenile in family court in what would amount to third-degree assault if committed by an adult, police said. Loughrey would later take to her Facebook page to intelligently explain her position.
“I just got out of jail for endangering the welfare of a child and harrasment in the 2nd for letting my 15 year old daughter defend her self against 12 to 15 teenage girls her age and big josh…. Who came to MY house NOT ONCE BUT 3 TIMES!” she posted. “ur dam right i stood by and made sure 12 girls diid not jump my daughter while THEY took video witch ended up prooving my inocents, she whooped that istagating lil bitches ass!”
(*that quote just caused my spellchecker to flip me off and then shit its pants*)
She continued to show her intelligence by issuing the following warning:
“So be prepared the next time YOU protect ur child from a gang of 12 other girls and protect your own property YOU WILL BE ARESSTED! You have no rights to protect your children or your own property but you best belive i am 100% right in what i did and will fight to superior court IF I HAVE TOO!!!!”
Good luck with that, Annie.
You know, I get the aggravation that comes with having a kid being bullied. I had a case long ago where my son was being bullied on the bus. After repeated calls to the school and attempts to talk to the other kid’s parents, I simply instructed my son to punch that motherfucker in the face if he laid a hand on him again.
I then called the school to inform them of what I had instructed my son, and told them I would be contacting every news station about it if something happened on the bus and they attempted to discipline my kid for defending himself against a threat they were unable to neuter. Of course, the school then had a meeting between my son and his bully, and they never again had an issue.
Every case is different, of course, but no matter what the situation, there are ways parents can handle it – even if it isn’t the “preferred” method. I could never imagine myself screaming at a kid like an idiot while refereeing a fight between them and my own child. Not even because all you end up doing is providing more fodder to be used against you and your kid, but mainly because it is FUCKING ILLEGAL.
