adult points gun at high school boy inside his own school (CSA) in front of teachers

September 20, 2012 Leave a comment Go to comments

this incident is being talked about in twitter this morning.

we have gathered the following from a source close to the incident:

  • the incident  happened 3 weeks ago
  • no police report has been filed on the incident (tv patrol showed a police report document)
  • the boy at whom a gun was pointed at felt his life was in mortal danger while it was happening. the boy felt he was going to be shot and die in school. that will make you weep. just imagine the kind of trauma this boy must have felt then until now.
  • the boy was alone when this happened. it happened during school hours. the boy was apparently called to the principal’s office. the incident happened in front of the admin office. (tv patrol says it happened inside the faculty room)
  • it happened with teachers witnessing the whole thing plus the father who pulled the gun and his two body guards
  • last year, another kid bullied retaliated by hitting a bully with a hammer in the head
  • the father who pulled the gun has been banned from entering the CSA campus
  • boy who got bullied with a gun was suspended for 5 days
  • the 2 other boys involved in the bullying were also suspended but, get this – for shorter period of time – 2 to 3 days only
  • CSA PTA (parents teachers association) is not getting involved here
  • my source tells me they needed the interview with korina sanchez to give the case publicity as nothing was happening on the issue
  • my source appreciates the tweets on the incident and wishes to thank everyone for the concern and the effort
  • please help the family of the boy bullied with a gun in giving this attention – tweet about it, put it on facebook and email to as many people as you can
  • please give your comment on this incident. let your thoughts and feelings be heard.

we (#gangsters tweets) have been talking about this incident in twitter since this morning,  these are the reactions to the incident from myself and the others:

  • we feel for the boy and parents of the boy. the boy or any student do not need this kind of trauma.
  • have always said that the safest places in the world for our children are #1 the home and #2 the school. for this to happen in the school is terrifying and wrong.
  • this incident is not just an issue of bullying, this is an issue of a life of boy that could have been taken inside the school by a bullet from a gun from a parent of a classmate.
  • how was the father able to bring in guns into the campus? the security guards did not check? are guns allowed in this school?
  • why was the boy called to the admin office when the teachers knew the father was going to confront him?
  • why wasn’t the parents of the boy at whom the gun was pointed informed of the meeting / confrontation? and why were the parents not present during the meeting / confrontation with bantilles?
  • shouldn’t this matter have been handled first among the parents? like the school to ask for a meeting with  both sets of parents first. we did not think any of the students should have been involved in the meeting or confrontation.
  • what was the school thinking allowing a confrontation with the father (bantilles) and the boy? what were they intending to achieve? and how is this being fair or productive?
  • one can argue the boy was set up to allow the father (bantilles) to bully the boy
  • we think this is not just a CSA matter, this is also a police matter. the police needs to get involved and legal action should be take against the adult who pulled a gun at the boy.
  • the boy could have been shot to death in this incident. and the loss of a life over a bullying incident in school?  that is senseless and terribly wrong.
  • how rampant is bullying at CSA?
  • CSA needs to review its policies and procedures on settling issues among students and parents and specifically on bullying. the school needs to study this carefully and draw out a procedure and a strategy on reducing bullying in the school and how to handle or resolve  it.
  • bullying is a real problem in all schools. CSA is not the only one and this has been going on for generations in all schools.
  • but that should not stop CSA from trying to minimize it if not stop it in their campus. CSA should continue to find solutions and should learn from past incidents to be better at handling it year to year.
  • government authorities should be involved here – the PNP for sure as it involves guns and the threat of death on a boy. as mentioned in twitter the Commission on Human Rights and the DSWD should be involved as it involves a minor.
  • parents of CSA should be concerned and get involved in this incident. the parents should demand action from the school. they should realize that this incident is saying their children may not be safe inside the CSA campus. not only did this incident show a weakness on CSA in handling bullying cases, it shows a major weakness in security.
  • people in twitter (mostly from #gangsters) find the CSA action on this incident as making no sense and being grossly unfair and unjust. the school suspended the boy at whom the gun was pointed at.

latest as of 7:35 pm

the boy was interviewed at abs-cbn’s TV Patrol, his name is Jaime (jay-mee) Gonzales. the information posted here are mostly the same to what he  revealed in the TV interview.

in the tv interview, jaime said bantilles slapped him, cursed him then got a bag from a bodyguard, looked inside and took out a gun. gun was pointed to his face and bantilles said “i can kill you right now”.

why didn’t the teachers who were witnessing the incident  stop bantilles from slapping, hurting and verbally abusing the high school boy?

why did bandilles, an adult and also a father of a teen-age boy think what he did to jaime was right and justified? does he treat his son that way?

Man accused of pointing gun at student inside exclusive school

By Dharel Placido, ABS-CBNnews.com

MANILA, Philippines – A woman has accused a man of pointing a gun at her grandson inside the premises of Colegio San Agustin in Dasmariñas Village, Makati City.

In an interview with Korina Sanchez on her dzMM radio program on Wednesday, Sony Lopez Gonzales said her grandson was pointed with a gun on the forehead by Allan Bantilles last August 30.

Gonzales said the gun-pointing incident started after her grandson punched Bantilles’ son.

She said her grandson only punched Bantilles’ son after reaching his limits due to the latter’s alleged bullying.

“They kept harassing my apo. Pino-poke ba naman yung penis and pwet. For weeks they were doing that,” Gonzales said, referring to Bantilles’ son and another student.

“Ulit sila ng ulit. Then sabi ng apo ko, ‘tama na, tama na, stop it.’ Doon nag-init ang apo ko, siyempre sinuntok niya,” she added.

Gonzales said after learning of the brawl, the older Bantilles immediately rushed to the school’s campus in Makati with a bodyguard and pointed his gun at the forehead of her grandson.

She said the incident was witnessed by several faculty members since it happened inside the school’s faculty room.

“[Ang sabi ni Bantilles], ‘you’re the boy that hit my boy?’ Tapos sinuntok na siya. He kept insulting him. In the meantime ang apo ko apologize ng apologize,” she said.

“Paulit-ulit [sinasabi ni Bantilles] ‘Do you want me to shoot you? Do you want me to shoot you?’ Eh kung na-Rolito Go ‘yan, eh ‘di patay na ang apo ko.”

Gonzales said a teacher then told her grandson to run away from Bantilles.

She said her grandson was suspended for four days, while the two students were still able to go to school following the incident.

She said a friend in the police force also confirmed to them that two guns were registered under Bantilles’ name.

“[Our lawyers] are still studying the case, but definitely, you can’t let a person like this out loose with two guns,” she said.

“Imagine, in a school of more than 6,000 students, somebody entered with a bodyguard and gun and point it to the forehead of my apo… I think this Bantilles, something is wrong with him. This might not be the only incident na matapang siya dahil may baril siya,” she added.

DZMM called the school administration for comment, but it declined to be interviewed. Sanchez asked Mr. Bantilles to air his side by calling the station.

Gonzales said barangay officials also have yet to receive a response from those who witnessed the incident.

    been shocked since i heard about this. why has CSA been keeping mum on the incident? what kind of school authorities does CSA have to let something like this pass? some CSA parents say the father of boy who bullied is ‘influential’. is this the reason why school has not reported to police?

  2. September 20, 2012 at 3:56 pm

    can they not see that the boy could have been killed by a bullet from a gun? this is no simple or small matter.

    Studied there for 13years and usually, the “victims” are not the victims at all. People, stop judging. You don’t know what actually happened. Let’s just shut up and move on.

    • September 20, 2012 at 11:32 pm

      is there any justification for an adult pointing a gun to a teen-age boy’s face and say he can kill the boy at that moment?

      where in that is being judgmental?

    • September 21, 2012 at 10:31 am

      Shut up and move on? That’s bull. You are obviously not a parent. Any parent can not possibly move on from the thought of another parent being able to pull a gun on their child. I know tons of people who went to CSA and all of them are outraged. The fact that you are not speaks volumes about your character.

      And – we WOULD know what happened if those involved took responsibility for their actions and spoke up instead of trying to keep it quiet. There is no situation that can justify pointing a gun at a child.

      Who is this Carlo? You studied at CSA for 13 years ?!!!??? I will not send my child to CSA !!!! if products are like you ! What are you talking about that we need to know exactly what happened !

      Carlo, I am talking to you! You double shut up. Hindi ka matalino or hindi mo ginagamit ang pinag aralan mo sa CSA! I am so outraged about this because Mr. Bantilles pointed a gun on the face of a child. Take note I am not related at all to Jaime or (Jaymee)

      You need not know exactly all the details of what happened on that day to understand what is right from wrong !! Putting a gun on the face of a child (whichever child, the bully or the bullied) is wrong !

      Kids misbehave to the highest degree and end up hurting each other. This should be dealt by the school and the parents together so that both can guide the child.

      It is obvious that Mr. Bantilles is just the sperm cell and NOT ACTING as A PARENT. I find him mentally imbalanced; has no grasp of right or wrong, could not control his temper; has impulsive behavior and dangerous!

      Mr Bantilles, you are an evill person. I as a parent abhor you !

      CSA is supposed to be a premier school of the rich and educated (?) families.
      CSA parents, do you want your children in the same school of the Bantilles boy (?); when anytime kid fights occur with his boy, your son or daughter will be next one to be pointed a gun on his/her face ????

      I am outraged because if this happens in CSA it can happen to any good school.
      Why is there no update on how the CSA and the DEPED are handling this.

      This incident is a public issue and parents (poor or rich) must know how this issue is resolved!

        1. not everything about the report is true.
        okay, so here’s what happened.
        student A is being bullied by student b and c
        student A gets mad and punches student b
        student B goes to clinic for first aid
        student A is brought to the GUIDANCE OFFICE but since it was the LEVEL I finals for sabayang pagbigkas , MAJORITY of the teachers including the councilors were in the theater, so if the councilor is not in, they would send the offender to the LOBBY not the faculty. STUDENTS ARE NOT ALLOWED INSIDE THE FACULTY.
        student B’s father arrives, goes to the faculty to TALK to a teacher, and met student a BY CHANCE.
        father reaches for the gun, and starts shouting. the secretary, who was in a booth-like part of the lobby, tried to wean and calm the father down,
        meanwhile…
        inside the faculty room, there were a few teachers left because of, as i stated above, the sabayang pagbigkas finals. other teachers were teaching level II.
        two teachers heard the father shouting and ran to check on it.
        they also helped the secretary wean and calm the father.
        and then they told the student to run.

        2. as for the update, keep calm and eat icecream. be patient, you’ll know when it gets out.

        3. I agree with you that Mr. Bantilles is a sperm cell, and is very dangerous.
        but if he did want to kill the kid, or anyone else, he could’ve just shot him and not do anything else. still, he is a B*tch. he even has a position in the military. now what does this say about our country and its leaders?

        4. it does happen to every school. just so happens that CSA has connections with the media.

        5. and that girl at the top, there’s something called CODE OF SECRECY. its to protect your identity. something like when you get into a mental hospital, or you get out of jail and start afresh. so if you want to announce what bad things happened to you, then fine, institutions were trying to protect you, but if that’s your decision then they cant do anything about it.

        thank you and good day.

        1. here’s what really happened.
        Student A is bullied by student b and student c
        student A retaliates and punches student b
        student b is sent to the clinic for first aid
        student a is sent to the guidance center for counseling, but since it was the finals of sabayang pagbigkas, Level I teachers and the counselors were in the theater, therefore, the student who committed the offense was sent to the Lobby (or receiving area) to wait for the head teacher.
        take note, the lobby is infront of the faculty. students and parents are not allowed to go inside the faculty room.
        and I repeat, this happened during the finals of sabayang pagbigkas, so majority of the teachers were not in the faculty.
        student b’s father goes to the receiving area (most likely to speak to a teacher) after being called by the clinic to inform him about his son,
        Mr. Bantilles meets student A BY CHANCE. BY CHANCE. and pulls a gun and starts shouting and points the gun.
        the secretary (who was sitting in the booth-like area in the lobby) tries to wean and calm the father down
        meanwhile…
        two teachers hear the commotion outside and hurries to check it.
        they try to help the secretary in weaning and calming the father down.
        then a teacher tells student a to run.

        2. as for the update, just keep calm and eat ice cream while waiting. once the real official statement comes out, im sure it’ll be able to answer all your questions.

        3. Bantilles is a bitch.
        but i dont think he intended to kill the kid. just threaten his life is all. cause if he did, he wouldn’t have shouted and made a racket. he would’ve straight out shot him.
        but still i agree, he is a sperm outside the balls.
        from what my sources tell me, he does have a position in the military. now what does that say about our country and its leaders?

        4. “I am outraged because if this happens in CSA it can happen to any good school.”
        — its not it CAN happen, its “it DOES happen” cause it does, it just so happens that CSA and people from CSA has connections with the media.

        5. that girl on top with the picture.
        “we WOULD know what happened if those involved took responsibility for their actions and spoke up instead of trying to keep it quiet. ”
        umm, so there’s this thing called code of secrecy, or anonymity. It’s for protecting your identity. For example, you get in a mental hospital, would you want everyone you know to know that you have emotional and mental issues? you wont right? here’s another example, you committed a crime before, but now you got out, you’d want to start afresh and you apply for anonymity. That’s why the school didn’t say anything. It’s also for the protection of the student/s involved. If the people involved want to expose what had happened to them, then it’s their choice. they should be the one to act first and not the school. its like “pinapangunahan mo” the people that were directly involved. what if they did not want this to go public. edi the school parin would take the blame? its a lose-lose situation. think naman before you say anything.

        1. The explaination to these bullets are very simple.
        “>why was the boy called to the admin office when the teachers knew the father was going to confront him?
        >why wasn’t the parents of the boy at whom the gun was pointed informed of the meeting / confrontation? and why were the parents not present during the meeting / confrontation with bantilles?

        >one can argue the boy was set up to allow the father (bantilles) to bully the boy”

        –they did NOT know. and it was the RECEIVING area. not the office.
        –THEY MET BY CHANCE.

        1.”information from a source close to the incident and the media”

        SOURCE CLOSE -not directly
        MEDIA – really? media? where not all things are reported? where controversial topics are made more controversial? so, do you really think that EVERYTHING reported by the media is accurate and not biased?

        2. the explanation to these bullets is very simple.
        “>why was the boy called to the admin office when the teachers knew the father was going to confront him?

        –THEY DIDNT KNOW THAT THE TWO WOULD MEET NOR DID THEY PLAN FOR THEM TO MEET. sheesh,

        3. it happened infront of the admin’s office and the faculty room. (wawam says it happened in the admin’s office)

        >bullying is a real problem in all schools. CSA is not the only one and this has been going on for generations in all schools

        – just as rampant as it is in other schools. just happens that the cases of bullying in other schools are not reported publicly.
        – what can you do if its the people who get bullied/ people who know people who get bullied who don’t speak up? how would they find out? sure, they would know by other means, but unless it’s the student who reports it, the school wont be able to take action, because that would be injustice on the part of the person being accused (assuming he/she is innocent)
        – agree. but bullying isnt only limited to schools. it also happens in the office, neighborhood and even in your own family.

    I think its just disgusting! Its true there are always 2 sides to a story but that does not give any person especially an adult to point a gun at the student! Kids will be kids! What’s the difference between the kid and adult then. First of all parents should not interfere amongst children they needed to sort this out with the school officials both d kids. I think that the father should be put behind bars for intimidating minors like this. And I feel it totally wrong for the school to suspend the kid that was traumatized more than what the bullies themselves were suspended! What a big shame! The faculty members should have called the cops immediately! What were they thinking keeping quiet like that?

    • September 21, 2012 at 10:08 pm

      what bantilles did was more than intimidation, it was a threat to take the boy’s life.

  8. Crazy dude
    September 22, 2012 at 1:20 am

    The real serious issue is violence of an adult done to a minor in a school that charges almost an arm and a leg where young ones are supposed to get great education. Not to say the bullying and the fighting is irrelevant or negligable. Let the school handle it.
    The school is culpable and Bantilles should face the rap. If he’s innocent then he should face it squarely but I bet he’s gonna lawyer-up. Its more frustrating to hear that the CSA community has done so little about this, the school did not even aired their position, which I think is a big mistake.

    September 22, 2012 at 3:51 am

    The sad part about what happened is the trauma inflicted in the boy’s mind and heart. How can he now learn to trust the adults whom he looks up to as his second parents – his teachers,school counselors and priests? How can he now go to school to learn, already knowing that his teachers have not been good examples at that point in time when the incident happenned? I do not know what exactly happened and how the situation came about and i wouldn’t know if i would do the same if i am in the teacher’s shoes but common sense dictates that i wouldnt let an enraged parent speak to a defenseless child. I would keep the child out of harm’s way until the enraged parent cools down and the victim’s parents arrive. Those teachers might have panicked and not known how to react because they are not trained to negotiate with terrorists. But would the child know that? They always look up to teachers and elders thinking that they know everything. I hope that relatives and friends of Allan Bantilles reads this: whatever his reasons are, he had NO right to inflict psychological distress to a young boy. That is child harrassment. He had no right to threaten the boy with a gun. He had no right to disrespect the school and damage its integrity and expose it to reputational risks. He had no right to expose his gun to the public without any threat to his life knowing that innocent civilians surround him. He had no right to boast publicly through exposing a gun and insinuate that he is above the law and is a powerful man. He HAS NO RIGHT to make his family including his children, relatives and friends suffer because of one selfish act. Believe me folks, they will suffer the shame with him. I hope and pray that his wife would be able to go through all of these and get her family through this ordeal.

    To the victim, i pray that you will heal and go back to your normal life. Do not hold grudges and learn to forgive. In time you will forgive but let that man learn his lesson as you would learn the lessons of life yourself. I pray for you and yours. God bless.

    Yes, NOTHING justified the criminal act of the poor excuse of a father who bullies children. That’s why his kid is a bully too. Bullies are COWARDS. The pathetic father had to bring 2 bodyguards and a gun with him just to confront one little kid! He should die in shame and burn in hell. And the school, OMG. What an outrage! No integrity!

      Yes, Mr Allan Bantilles, this incident has reached the whole Philippines through the radio, internet, TV and I also share the disgust and anger felt by CSA parents.

    Hello everyone, I am a 16 year old CSA student here to calm your minds and make you see reason.

    To Mr. Lav who posted on September 21.

    “… And I feel it totally wrong for the school to suspend the kid that was traumatized more than what the bullies themselves were suspended! What a big shame!

    Sir,

    While I see the reason for your apprehension, I can’t help but to point out the old saying “two wrongs don’t make a right”. Yes, the boy bullied was traumatized by the incident, but let’s go back to basics. At the end of the day, assaulting someone because they continually poke you or irritate you or bully you cannot be justified. I would have understood if Jaime was acting in self-defense. Why you might say that this has allegedly been going on for weeks, or even months, and that he has the right to throw the first punch, I would also like to point out that why would he even let it continue that long? CSA has numerous anti-bullying campaigns, and for those campaigns to be a success, CSA needs the cooperation of us, the students, as well. Violence could have been avoided if this was all resolved earlier by the proper authorities, AKA our guidance counselors.Also, I can’t help but think that both parties were suspended not only because of their wrongdoings, but for their own safety and the safety of my fellow students as well. Also, I think it’s unwise to let a student report to school a day after such a traumatizing incident. Don’t get me wrong, Mr. Bantilles is a scum who should be punished accordingly, but you all are letting your emotions fog proper logic, and I’m also not faulting Jaime as reporting a bullying incident is a one-way ticket to being a social pariah.

    “…The faculty members should have called the cops immediately! What were they thinking keeping quiet like that?”

    Sir,

    The faculty members did alert the security. I don’t know what would have possessed you to assume that they just stood there like frozen statues. I mean, how else could the man been escorted away from the premises. I would also like to point out that one teacher alerted security, at least one tried calming down the man, and one personally escorted him away. Let me remind you that the man has a gun, and we don’t know what would have happened if the teachers acted rashly as you imply in your statement. Let me digress for a minute to remind everyone that not everything the media says is factual and complete, nor is everything here in the internet. Going back, the teachers handled this boiling situation quite well. No one was harmed physically, and we all get to live another day. I would also like to narrate that calming the man down and not doing anything to aggravate him was the first priority, because if it wasn’t, we would have had a tragedy in our hands.

    Feel free to reply,

    Hello everyone, I am a 16 year old CSA student here to calm your minds and make you see reason.

    To the anonymous one who posted on Sept. 22

    “I do not know what exactly happened and how the situation came about and i wouldn’t know if i would do the same if i am in the teacher’s shoes but common sense dictates that i wouldnt let an enraged parent speak to a defenseless child. I would keep the child out of harm’s way until the enraged parent cools down and the victim’s parents arrive. Those teachers might have panicked and not known how to react because they are not trained to negotiate with terrorists. ”

    Sir,

    The CSA faculty did not intend for the parent and the child to meet, much less for the confrontation to occur. No educator in the right mind would let an enraged parent speak to a child. What was supposed to happen was that Mr. Bantilles and a certain faculty member would speak discussing the situation his son was involved in. No one anticipated that he would bring a gun to a docile meeting and that he would threaten Jaime. Under these circumstances, I think the teachers did a good job. I don’t know why you thought the teachers panicked, because if they had, someone might have gotten hurt physically. I said this in my previous comment and I will reiterate it again, one teacher alerted security, at least one tried calming down the man, and one personally escorted him away. I don’t think that’s something a panicked person would have been capable of being able to do.
