    It is not at all unusual for a victim of bullying to be punished. In fact, it almost happened to me. I was blamed, but fortunately I was not punished. The "blame the victim" attitude is common.

    It is Virginia, after all. I guess since they can't lynch blacks anymore, it's OK to beat up gays for entertainment. Wouldn't be surprised if the local sheriff's kids were in on it.

    Legally (where English common law still prevails - apparently not Virginia) if this victim threw the first punch, the guy he punched could fight back. But anyone else joining in (the other three guys) is guilty of assault and battery.

    It would be poetic justice if someone got their faces on the internet and hounded them to death for the next 20 years.

    The Henrico County Prosecuting Attorney is a democrat (Shannon L. Taylor). Southern democrats started the KKK who committed acts of violence on Gays, Jews, African Americans and Republicans. Henrico County supports obama.

    This is totally wrong. How can a kid who was assaulted by four thugs and end up in the hospital for nine days be the one charged with assault. There is something radically wrong with the law in Virginia if an assault victim ends up being charged with assault and the actual criminals get away with it. Where were adult authorities when this violent incident happenedicon_question.gif

    It is not uncommon for rules to be perverted to blame the victim. Using rules to create injustice appears common in very conservative school districts. In Minnesota, the Anoka school district has been on the news for refusing to create substantial anti-bullying policies.
