Last month, when Florida father James Jones boarded his 12-year-old daughter’s school bus to confront some classmates who’d allegedly been bullying her on a regular basis, it vaulted the topic of bullying back into the national spotlight and landed Jones in some serious legal trouble. Since that event, however, bullying has stayed front and center in the news cycle, reinforced by a string of successively horrifying stories. But as this Newsweek article postulated, is this recent stream of bullying really a “new” epidemic? This morning, Matt Lauer sat down with James Jones, his daughter Chatari, his wife Deborah McFadden-Jones and their attorney Natalie Jackson for an emotional discussion about the incident, the legal ramifications of Jones’ actions and Chatari’s plans moving forward. Choking back his tears, Jones admitted that the episode has “turned his whole world upside down.” At this stage, Jones could still face time in prison for his actions. While James Jones’ method of dealing with the situation was, by his own admission, the wrong choice and has cost him dearly, do you believe he should serve time in jail?
