Jose Lagares of Killeen made his fourth-grade son stand on a streetcorner this week with a sign reading, “I am a bully. Honk if you hate bullies.”
The youngster had apparently — and repeatedly — gotten into trouble in school for bullying.

“Bullying is also a form of public humiliation,” Lagares told the website.

The father reportedly added that most passing motorists responded positively to the unusual punishment
