A Central Texas mom says a video being circulated at her daughter's school proves her claim that her daughter is being bullied and attacked.

"About a week-and-a-half ago, my daughter was assaulted in the city of Lacy Lakeview. It was an incident that started at school," said Jane Carter after her 14-year-old was involved in an incident. "This is a very scary feeling to watch two children even to fight at this level."

Carter says a group of Connally High School girls has been bullying her daughter for years, but never at this level. "Fourteen-year-old girls are known to run their mouths and that's your freedom, your right as an American citizen to say whatever you need to say. But it is not your right to put your hands on other people."

Carter says the video of the attack is making the rounds in the school causing her daughter to go into a severe state of depression. "At this point, (she's) kind of suicidal. And it's very very disheartening as a parent."

Now, Carter wants Connally ISD to do something about it. "Since the video was circulating at the school, there are children that should be punished. Not only the children that shot the video, but the children that consistently review the video at school."

The school district released a statement saying it can't comment on disciplinary issues concerning specific students. Carter says if nothing is done, she will consider moving.
