Why did this man take out an AVO against a 5y/o?

 

A father has taken out an AVO on his daughter’s bully.

“I want to slit your throat and watch it bleed.”

These are the words this father says spurred him into action.

His little girl – aged just six – was being bullied at school.

She was being pushed around the playground. She had rocks thrown at her.

Her dad Brian Metzger says that the five-year-old boy made the life of his daughter and those around her a living hell.

Her father decided enough was enough.

He approached the school for assistance but wasn’t satisfied with their response.

Brian Metzger wants the boy removed from school.

So the dad, from Wisconsin in the US, filed a temporary restraining order against the kindergarten boy.

He told CBS News that it was his only option after the school’s lack of resolution.

“Now that I’ve done all this, they finally took him out of the classroom my daughter is in, but it’s not enough,” said Brian Metzger.

“I want him removed from the school district, period.”

CBS reports that a second family have now also filed a police report against the same boy.

After the story went public, social media slammed the Metzger family for taking things too far and many made comments saying he should’ve contacted the parents of the boy first.

“If they knew the facts, they’d know the parents have been contacted by the school,” said Metzger.

The school confirms the boy’s parents were notified of the situation and say they are working to accommodate both families.

He took out a temporary restraining order.

Brian Metzger, however, wants the boy simply removed.

A hearing is scheduled for this week where a course of action will be decided.
