Bullied gay teen uses stun gun at school

By the CNN Wire Staff

(CNN) – An Indiana mother who sent her gay son to school with a stun gun after administrators apparently didn’t do enough to stop the bullying against him said she would do it again – even though the teen now faces expulsion.

“I do not promote violence – not at all – but what is a parent to do when she has done everything that she felt she was supposed to do … at the school?” the mother, Chelisa Grimes, told CNN’s Don Lemon on Sunday. “I did feel like there was nothing else left for me to do, but protect my child.”

The school district held an expulsion hearing last week but no decision has been announced.

Grimes sent her son, Darnell “Dynasty” Young, to Arsenal Technical High School in Indianapolis with the stun gun after he said he was taunted and bullied for months.
