    bully got what he deserved, the kid that stopped the fight was kicked out of the football team & suspended it seems. if you don't get along with a blind kid simply walk away :doh:

    No good deed ever goes unpunished.:confused:o_O Stupid decision by the school to suspend the kid who stopped the bullying.

    On one hand, I understand why the school can't just let these types of things slide. On the other, I well understand that some people do deserve a good asskicking from time to time.

    Kid should've gotten a day of detention and nothing more.

    Likely an asinine zero-tolerance for fighting policy.

    I wonder what caused the incident in the first place. Even an utter moron would generally think twice before physically assaulting a disabled person.

    Probably. These zero-tolerance policies are more like zero-brain policies.

    The part that I don't think either of these boys understand is that you can severely injure or even kill a person with a blow to the head. So I can't advocate for punching a person in the head. That's a really, really bad way to resolve this kind of situation.

    agreed, but it was fast & effective. no one else even tried to stop it, they were busy filming it.

    But there was no blow to the head. As far as I can tell, he just pushed the bully over.

    Sorry. My bad. I hate to get in the way of people enjoying their violence.

    Don't worry, I'm sure the bullies parents will sue if he has a TBI. They'll ignore the fact that their kid was pummeling a blind kid. I'm sure in their eyes he's a "really good kid" and they don't know what the blind kid did to their son, but he doesn't deserve what he got.

    Did the school not suspend the dumbass punching a blind kid or did they skip over that part?

    the guy who stopped the beating did not "enjoy" the violence IMHO, he could have kept punching the bully, instead he stopped after knocking him out with the first punch & asked the bully if he knew he was beating up a blind kid.

    I wouldn't mind that. Would you?

    I don't think they reported anything on that.

    However, since I would obviously be biased in this thread (my wife is blind), I'm going to bow out of it. There's way too much I could say here, to the point that I hope I never run into the idiot who bullied the blind person.

    At leas the was arrested, so that will reflect on his record; however, any LEOs here want to chime in on if an arrest nets you a criminal record, or if it is just the conviction that does?

    The PD gets it, the school has their head up their ass. I'd make the kid captain of the football team, prom king, and supply him with a family sized 48 pack of Trojans. I'd troll the kid and hang these all over the school if I was the Principal.

    he is a kid still, so Juvi at the most depending on how he pleads and that record is irrelevant once he turns into an adult, the article mentions they both have a history of not getting along, the blind kid could be the instigator to a degree, at the same time walking away from someone who is visually impaired is pretty easy.

    I don't know.. with recent events regrading bullying getting national attention, this just may get the attention it needs to warrant Obama saying or doing something, including an invitation, for both the defender and the blind student.

    While it would be nice, I wouldn't hold my breath. He seems to rally around the victims a little more than the heroics of others.

    You're right about that, but the blind kid could have also been injured. A punch from a kid isn't as likely to kill someone. Hopefully the bully learns something from this, because if he tries the same thing in his 20s, he is much more likely to wind up in an ambulance (and yes I have personally seen that happen).

    What happened leading up to the blind kid getting hit? Was there a verbal exchange that exacerbated the situation, including possibly hateful language by the blind student that provoked the other youth? Did the person that hit the blind kid even know that he was blind? Should we just assume the blind kid was totally without fault because he is blind?

    The only reason the kid who threw the last punch got suspended was because of his race and Muslim-sounding name. Had he been white, he wouldn't have been suspended.
