There’s no doubt you’ve probably heard the saying kids can be cruel. What happened to a young teen named Hannah Combs last month is certainly nothing less than just that; cruel.
The freshman at Harker Heights High School in Killeen, TX was hanging out with a few friends before school started when she witnessed a couple of kids playing around with a bottle of super glue. She had no idea the nightmare that would soon follow.
One of the boys poured the super glue in her hair and it felt like it was on fire. Her parents rushed her to urgent care after being picked up from school where health professionals tried removing glue from her scalp. She suffered sever chemical burns and a significant amount of hair loss. She also had to have her head shaved where portions of the glue matted into her scalp.
The bully who poured the super glue in her hair received 3 days of ISS (in school suspension). Certainly not a sufficient consequence due to the offense’s severity. Assault charges were filed against him.
He has received numerous threats via social media and his mom [ironically] is concerned for his safety. While revenge is certainly not the right course of action, physically harming another person for no good reason tends to breed anger from family and friends of the victim.
Let’s hope he is remorseful for his actions, apologizes to Hannah, never purposely harm another human-being and pays for his assault however the law sees fit.
This will be forever etched in Hannah’s mind and possibly dipped into her subconscious. However, there’s a good possibility she will become a stronger person because of it.
How would you react if this happened to your daughter? What if it was your child that was the bully and committed the assault? Do you think the school handled this appropriately?
