This story is truly horrifying. Hope Holcomb, 10, of Canton, Ohio, who suffers from cerebral palsy, has been cruelly bullied by a neighborhood child and his father.
The incident caught on tape by Hope’s grandmother, showed William Bailey, the father and his son apparently imitating Holcomb’s limp as they walk from the school bus.
According to Holcomb’s parents, the two did this every day. ‘It makes me sick to think that grown man would tease a 10-year-old disabled girl that has never done a thing,’ Hope’s father said.
Vickie Bailey, wife and mother of alleged bullies, said, ‘It was no offense to Hope, so why they’re taking it as that, I have no idea.’
William Bailey, the father seen in the video mocking the girl, does not have much to say in his defense though for his horrifying and shameful act.
