WOW! I was amazed sitting in my living room watching Mr. Thompson, a man requesting to set the record straight, invite another to duel in the parking lot. The simple FACT that Mr. Thompson used the words that he had received gospel followed by asking a well respected public official to step out to the parking lot and referred to him wetting his pants in a diaper was astonishing. The real apology should be coming from Mr. Thompson. He should be ashamed of his behavior. Is this the type of example that should be set by a public official? Do we want our children making these same threats to their fellow students? I seriously doubt it. In fact if a child was caught making those statements they would be in detention or worse. After all there is a huge crackdown on bullying. The behavior displayed by Mr. Thompson is not a behavior I want my children emulating. As adults we are responsible for setting the example for our children. Mr. Thompson is right that there is an apology owed, but he should be the one apologizing to the children.
