This is no time for fence sitting.

Right!
I feel strongly about this one, and wish to allow you all to have your say.
Warning the video shows real violence.

So now you’ve watched the video, what’s your view?
Do you think it’s wrong the victim is suspended?

What I would like to see is the bully charged with assault, the camera person charged with failure to assist and the victim apologized to. And the school should be sued for not dealing with the issue before it got this far.
99% of schools brag about having a Zero tolerance stance on bullying… so why has it taken 3 years and a double suspension for them to see just what an epic fail their system really is.

After alleged years of being picked on, bullied and abused, the boy finally decides enough is enough. Nobody else has done anything that worked. So he took the situation in hand… literally.

But….

The bully has be receiving death threats. THAT is not okay. It’s just sick.

Violence is not the answer, but as a last resort it was pretty gentle. One act, and there were no fists involved. There was no kicking. There was no act beyond the impromptu lift and drop.

Did the bully deserve it..? You betcha
Did the victim deserve to be suspended..? No!
Does the school now have to wake up and listen for a god damn change? They’d better.

Leave comments. I want to hear what you have to say.

    I think the bully got what he deserved, wonder how he felt being on the receiving end for a change! i notice he left the area quite quickly! maybe because he was embarrassed……. i dont think violence is the answer but everyone gets to that point where enough is enough! schools DO NOT do enough to educate kids on the effects bullying has on ppl! more needs to be done and maybe more suspensions need to be handed out and expulsion for repeat offenders! i know this is just passing the buck to another school, maybe there could be a school thats just for bullys???
    This is such a hard one, but i must say i smiled when i saw the kid defend himself! thought bet no one messes with him for a while!

    Anyways just some thoughts!

    Is giving the bullies a day off gonna help them though. Maybe a mandatory tour of a jail. To see where the big dogs end up when they decide to bully people in the real world. Get the inmates to scare them straight.
