Temika McClure, 26.

A 26-year-old Conway woman was arrested for second-degree battery Wednesday evening after she boarded a school bus and advised her children to attack another student.

According to a news release from the Conway Police Department, Temika McClure walked onto a school bus at 1st and Ingram streets on Aug. 20 and made contact with a boy who had allegedly stabbed her daughter with a pencil. She then called two of her other children onto the bus, telling them to "handle that (expletive)." The two children then attacked the boy.

It was later found that McClure's daughter did initially have marks that could have been caused by being stabbed with a pencil.

McClure refused to leave the bus during the attack after being asked several times by the bus driver, who radioed for help. The children beat the victim until another man boarded the bus and dispersed the fight.

Witnesses and video of the incident assisted in the case.

The male victim suffered minor injuries from the incident, and the children who attacked him are being handled by the school district.

In the release, McClure added that she should not face charges because she instructed the children and did not commit the act herself.

I understand that she is trying to teach her kids how to stand up for each other, but this wasn't the right way to go about it. At least the bully who stabbed her kid got a taste of what it's like so maybe he'll think twice before lashing out at other kids.

How in the world do you know it was a bully and he was not protecting himself from this crazy woman's daughter? There is nothing to suggest the girl was bullied; if she was fine but let's not assume anything. If this is the kind of leadership she offers I hope her kids learn the phrase "would you like fries with your order" or possibly "which pump are you on".

Razorback, I like that comment. Another phrase they may need to learn is "How long you in for?"

Right on jgbear; I was just trying to be a little more positive. You are being more realistic as I think that is likely a destination for them.

While I detest and condemn the actions of this mother, I am also disgusted that you people feel it gives you license to let loose with the racial comments. You are small minded ignorant bigots who are as bad an example for the community as this woman is.

What did I say that is racist Sandman, except in your racist mind? You are one of those that make racism so much worse in this country.
