When this young boy was fed up with his bully and finally fought back, he was the one that copped the punishment.
An Imgur user called wolverineprostateexams recently posted a story of his younger cousin (gr 10) who had been tormented by a school bully for months, until finally, he decided to stand up for himself.
After being provoked and pushed around one too many times, he ultimately chose to protect himself.
“My young cousin (started 10th grade this year) received a three day suspension for fighting on school grounds. Doesn’t matter that the other kid has a history of bullying. Doesn’t matter that it has been documented that he has been bullying my cousin since the school year started. Last Friday was the final straw. Bully was blocking my cousin from getting on the bus. There is a video of my cousin repeatedly telling bully to move. Bully then pushed my cousin with enough force he trips. As my cousin tries to get up bully kicks my cousin in the stomach and punches him in the face when he tries to get up again. That was the last of it.
My cousin rushed his bully and proceeded to beat the living crap out of him. SRO pulled my cousin off the bully and both are brought to the principle. Parents are called. According to my uncle the other kids parents are demanding my cousin be expelled, even after seeing the video of my cousin being kicked and punched on the ground. My uncle compared them to Harry Potter’s aunt and uncle. Principle announces both students will receive a three day suspension. My uncle makes it clear he will not be punishing my cousin and the three days will be leisure days. This pisses of the bullies parents even more. They tell my uncle if my cousin goes near their son again they will sue him. My uncle tells them if their son goes after my cousin he’ll just get his ass kicked again and to leave them alone. ” via imgur
The school has a zero-tolerance response and proceeded to give both the bully, and his victim, the same punishment for fighting: A three-day suspension.
The victim’s family certainly weren’t about to punish their son though.
“My uncle makes it clear he will not be punishing my cousin and the three days will be leisure days,” he wrote on Imgur.
He added, “He defended himself and I’m proud of him.”
Do you think both students should have been punished?
