    Hopefully the cops will charge him, but I highly doubt it.

    I'd prolly kill the guy. If someone would come that hard at me. And if i knew it was a hate crime, i'd kill the guy. I've got too much anger in me...and when he'd open all those bottles be better RUN AWAY.

    I fly for free and I will meet anyone where ever this took place and make sure this kid enjoys the rest of his meals thru a straw!
    What gets me is all the people standing around not doing anything.
    It's a person, a human being. I'd risk expulsion, suspension to help someone out. I'd rather be right and in trouble than safe, and see someone go to the hospital

    It's infuriating that this punk who attacked this kid only got off with a 3 day suspension. This is assault, plain and simple, and the bully should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. If I were the parent, I would also pursue legal action toward the school. Is the school not responsible for keeping the kids safe while in their building?

    Why do high school kids get a free pass on assault? Isn't it still against the law? Throw the aggressor in prison for a few years and see how tough he is in there.

    But we don't know if this is because he is gay... oh, and bullying happens all of the time... and of course, what was he doing to cause the guy to beat him repeatedly?" */end sarcasm.

    In a lot of cases they do (unless the victim is gay or an ethnic minority). Recently at a school I used to volunteer at a grade 6 student who was turned down by a grade 8 boy gave a play station to the school bullies to beat the grade 8 boy to a pulp (think of it like baby's first hit). The result was that the grade 6 student and the two bullies were both given (and I forget the technical term for this) a charge that isn't charged against them right away, but it will augment future charges if another assault takes place.

    Although, doesn't that video just make you nostalgic for the days when we actually did things for people who were being assaulted rather than documenting it and posting it on youtube? Guys, if I'm ever getting the shit kicked out of me, for the love of fucking fuck help me.

    What a disgusting, trashy kid.

    Kudos to the gay kid for trying to fight back though ! Hardly a fair fight, that blonde kid was twice his size..........

    +1. This kid needs to be punished severely.

    As the victim for 3 weeks of a bully when I was a little kid, I wish somebody could have taken a picture of me getting beat up. The bully in my case made me afraid to tell - convincing me he'd kill me if I ever told a soul. I just took his crap, and paid him off every day for about 3 weeks. Yep, I actually paid the s.o.b. NOT to hurt me. Finally one day I refused to pay - or didn't have the money - whatever - and got the shit beat out of me. Then - it was no longer a secret. My grandfather saw me all bloody - limping into the driveway. Everything changed. My grandfather spent the next week (Easter vacation) teaching me to fight, block, throw a punch, etc. Back at school the first day after vacation, I did as I was taught. I went up to the bully (waiting for his money from me) and took the offense. I delivered a good left hook - right between his eyes - hard as I could (for my size). The bully went down - hard - in front of witnesses. End of story. I was never bothered again - by him or any other bully at that school.

    Do I blame the school? No. It wasn't their fault. They had no idea I was being bullied. I blame myself for taking his crap for 3 weeks. Things should have been stopped that first day he demanded money and shoved me around. I only wish I could tell little kids to toughen up, but more than that - to have the guts to TELL a parent or teacher that this shit is happening. Appeasing a bully or trying to pay him not to hurt you doesn't work. You have to show some guts and defend yourself - - - show the bastards you are not a target and will not just take it. Notice bullies don't pick on guys who will fight back?

    This pisses me off to no end that other kids (and often adults) will stand by and not take action to assist someone being beaten up.

    The other thing is, why don't more gay guys take proactive action on their own behalf. I was bullied by two guys quite a bit bigger than me and after I'd tried talking to them to get them to stop with no good results. I waited on one of them, bloodied his mouth real good, blacked his eye, broke his glasses when I hit him in the nose and knocked out two teeth. I was taken to the principals house along with this kid and he lied and I went after him again in front of the Principle, who pulled me off of him. The principle told me I would have to pay for the teeth and the glasses and I refused, as did my father when he told the principle off and we never heard another word about it. That was my freshman year at a private christian school, Those two never again called me even one name, the one I beat up didn't say more than about 5 words to me through the rest of High School. BY THE WAY, BOTH OF THOSE GUYS DIED OF AIDS, one at age 36, the other at age 42.

    The way I see it is, by god you pick at me and I will see to it that it stops if I have to hit the idiot over the head with a bat to even things out. The better share of the time a bully has to be shown that his actions don't pay off. Of course a person should try talking sense into the guy, and talk to authorities, but if it doesn't work and If a boy cannot handle it himself, get some friends to help. Then once a kid has done his 'deed' to protect himself, make such a scene with the authorities for letting the problem go to the point that he had to protect himself, that the authorities are embarassed to even try to take up a case against the proactive kid.

    I raised two kids and both of them had to deal with a bully, and I told them both to take their part by hitting their oppressor in the mouth (where the problem usually is) as hard as they could, I told them to follow it up with yelling at their oppressor to never call them any names or hit them again, then walk away and act like nothing happened. In both cases the bully was so stunned they didn't even try to hit back, also in both cases the teacher called me and I let them know that it would happen again to any bully that picked at my kid, but that they should let me know if mine were ever guilty of being a bully.

    being proactive usually works to stop a bully.

    I loved your story, Gregg, but I think it misses the broader point on a couple of levels. First, a lot of kids, regardless of how hard they might try, are simply NOT fighters. They can't defend themselves against someone who has the bully mentality. Especially after a good amount of bullying has gone on, some of these kids are just plain frozen in fear and have a hard time fighting back. Secondly, going to teachers and parents and reporting this, while good in theory, can also only serve to escalate the situation if/when the bully retaliates. I think the only real way to get a handle on this increasingly problematic epidemic of bullying is for schools to adapt a very rigid "No Tolerance Policy" when it comes to bullying. If a situation takes place like the one we saw here in the video, as soon as it is reported the bully should be expelled -- period. No exceptions, no discussion, he is out of that school. Let the parents figure out what school they need to get the kid into and, hopefully, let the kid learn his lesson. The laws should also be in place that IF a kid like this is a repeat offender he will be charged with assault, he will serve some time in juvenile detention, and he will have a police record. I really don't see how else society can get it into the heads of these young people that bullying is wrong, it is potentially criminal, and those who choose to bully will face severe consequences. I wish it were as easy as teaching kids to fight and defend themselves, but I don't really think that is realistic.

    Todd - I'm all for expelling a little bully - absolutely. I see that as a fine solution. The only problem is - what about the little kid who is afraid to tell? The bully tells you he'll "kill" you and you totally believe it. What can we do about bullies who pounce on little kids away from the public eye. In my case it was in Hillsborough, California - behind the big eucalyptus trees - out of site of anybody else. I had to fight. I was pale, skinny, weak, almost an albino looking little blond fairy of a kid.........but I had to put a stop to it myself. I wish I'd had the guts to tell someone - - - and I would have LOVED to see the guy expelled. But what about the kids who are afraid to report it?

    I agree - make it a law - and make it well known - so every potential bully knows he'll get expelled. Maybe that will stop some of them from even beginning to terrorize little kids. I'll bet it would stop a lot of them - but what about the little bastards who are so hard core - they don't give a damn about laws or rules - they just want to take their aggression out - and assume they won't get caught?

    I think part of the reason kids are afraid to report it is that they don't feel confident that the school's will take the proper action to put a stop to it and see that "The Bully" faces severe consequences. There can be no middle ground here. "No Tolerance Policy" means that IF you bully, you are out of school --- END OF STORY. The incident should be reported immediately to the police to make it a matter of record and IF the bully retaliates away from school there will be severe consequences in terms of legal action. Kids need to feel confident that reporting the bullying won't just result on a slap on the wrist of to The Bully, who is then free to continue the action either secretly in school or away from school. It's simply not realistic to think we can teach some of these kids to defend themselves short of them carrying a handgun in their back-pack because often-times the kids being bullied simply are incapable of protecting themselves from violent type aggression that petrifies them and leaves them frozen in fear.

    These little bastards need to get a good hard dose of discipline and face the reality that IF they partake in such behavior that is wrong, not to mention potentially criminal, then they will face severe consequences and be held accountable. Law and the school simply must get tough on this issue or it will not go away.

    This pisses me off. That poor kid has to live in hell because of a bully. If I was that kid I would just go ballistic and beat the living hell out of the bully one day since the school won't do anything but give him 3 snow days. So screwed up.

    THREE DAY SUSPENSION?

    I'm not sure what makes me more angry. That the bully attacked the kid for no good reason, or that someone had the nerve to video tape it instead of help out.
