Elizabeth mom fears for son's life after threats

There are many parents across the Garden State who worry about their children getting bullied, but one Elizabeth mother is fearing for her son?s life after threats were made against him.

The woman, who is only using her first name Linda, says she is terrified an ongoing feud between her 10-year-old son and another boy may soon turn violent. Linda says her son has been pressured to join a gang several times.

According to Linda, most of the intimidation has been taking place during the school day at Teddy Roosevelt Elementary School, but the most serious threat came just outside her home.

?It went this far, for him to come personally to my house with a knife and threaten my son with it,? Linda says.

Linda says her son has been suspended for fighting back. She says he has missed so much school that she now has to go to court because of the absences. Linda claims she has filed five police reports against the boy and his parents.

Meanwhile, the school principal says she is well aware of the problem.
