LAGUNA NIGUEL (CBSLA) – A mother has been banned from a school in Laguna Niguel after she was captured on cellphone video threatening a classroom full of students Tuesday morning regarding the alleged bullying of her daughter.

Cellphone video shows a woman confronting a class at Niguel Hills Middle School in Laguna Niguel about the alleged bullying of her daughter. May 15, 2019.

The woman entered a Niguel Hills Middle School classroom during second period and threatened a class of students she believed had been bullying her daughter, Principal Tim Reece informed parents in an email Tuesday afternoon.

“If you all bully my daughter, if you look at her the wrong way, if you breathe the wrong way, send your mom to me,” the woman can be heard saying in the video that appears to have been recorded by a student and was provided to CBS2. “Sisters, aunts, anybody over 18, I’ll f— them all up. Do you understand me?”

The teacher of the classroom contacted the front office for help, and the assistant principal eventually escorted the woman out, Reece disclosed.

On Wednesday, the Capistrano Unified School District confirmed to CBS2 that the mother had been banned from campus.

CBSLA’s Michele Gile spoke with the mother, Christian Tinsley, who said she might not have handled the situation in the right way.

“I think that sometimes when you’ve done everything you can do the way you’re supposed to do it, and it hasn’t been resolved, then sometimes as a parent…you have to decide if you’re going to go a step further and deal with any consequences,” said Tinsley.

According to Tinsley, her child had been bullied by a group of boys for months.

She says that despite disciplinary action, the bullying not only continued but that it got worse. She said she wanted to let the bullies know she wasn’t playing around and it prompted her to enter the classroom herself.

She said the final straw was when she dropped her daughter off on Tuesday and she started crying and begged to stay in the car.

“She made a comment to me that if she wasn’t as strong as she was, she would have killed herself,” Tinsley says, “That’s when Mama Bear mode went into effect.”

The Orange County Sheriff’s Department has been asked to investigate the case, Reece disclosed.

“When a parent or student shares concerns about bullying or harassment with administration, teachers, or staff, they are immediately investigated at our school site and both students and their parents are contacted,” Reece wrote in the email.

It’s unclear exactly how exactly the woman got on campus. Reece said that visitors are required to sign in at the front office.

    Do you have proof readers? “Principle Tim Reece”

  2. The only “bullying” that seems to be occurring is the mother threatening a whole classroom full of middle-school children. Did it ever cross her mind that maybe, just maybe, her daughter is making the whole thing up to avoid going to school?? And now thanks to the mom’s antics, the daughter’s gonna be the laughing-stock of the whole school!!! Way to go mom!!

    1. Go to hell you white pig racist. Go f— yourself. Go have sex with your mother.

  3. Schools always deliberately look the other way when bullying is brought to their attention. Schools are complicit when any of their students get hurt by bullying. I don’t blame the mother for blowing up at the kids. She was fed up and pushed to the brink by the bullies and the school was asleep at the wheel. I sincerely hope authorities do not bring charges against her. Instead this should be a wake-up call to bullies that if you mess with the wrong person, there will be consequences, regardless of whether the school/authorities get involved or not. I would do the same in a heartbeat without question regardless of what consequences I bring myself. She gave the school an opportunity to correct the problem and they failed miserably.

    Always the kneegrow

  5. I understand how this happens, i have been close to the same thing. We went through same thing, Capo Unified does not act until the word “suicide” enters the discussion. Sometimes that it is after the child has taken their own life (Aliso Viejo). This is not a black/white thing. This happens everyday. Rondog you know nothing about what these people have been through. For someone to be pushed to take this approach , I guarantee they were at their wits end.

    If the mother and daughters claims are true, and I’ll assume they are, the mom did exactly the right thing. This would have been perfectly appropriate 60 years ago. And it would have worked.
    Sometimes people need to be yelled at and threatened when they’re repeatedly doing something stupid.

  7. The schools have “programs” on top of programs, unfortunately this soft, sensitive way of trying to stop bullies from bullying only works when the staff can see the bullying take place. I can guarantee that kids that are considerable bigger than the other kids are your main problem in any grade. Most every school district has a middle school or high school separate from the rest for kids that can’t seem to stop beating down other kids especially kids that are a little different. It might be a good idea to start a elementary school for these special, anti-social bullies.

    She didn’t threaten the kids — story totally taken out of context. She clearly said — anyone over the age of 18 — your Mama, sister, aunt – whoever – they can deal with it. She brought the kids a message to deliver to their parents or whomever. Sadly, the schools are complicit when it comes to students bullying other students — teacher report — and the report dies at the administrative level and then a child dies. School boards across the country need to do more then what they do and make bullying a reason for suspension.
