Texas father pickets school over son’s alleged bullying

Texas father is hitting the streets to support his son, who he says is being punished for standing up to a bully.

Duke's 14-year-old son, Max, was disciplined for allegedly fighting with a student who had been bullying him, Duke said.

Local school district officials declined to comment on the disciplinary issue, citing privacy laws, according to the Victoria Advocate.

Randy Duke is a Navy veteran recently returned from the Middle East after training Afghan police officers for the last year.

"I left one war and came back to another," Duke told the Advocate. "This is not about this one bully; this is about the school district not standing up and doing something about it.“
