The thing that really pisses me off about this video is the adult who says I dont think hitting is an appropriate response to bullying, What a Fuck Tard! this wasn't about a kid that was bullied and hit someone the bullying escalated to a assault and in defense of his own person after being cornered and obviously not wanting to fight he was assaulted and struck back, everyone has a right to protect themselves from harm.
This whole thing is tragic but you only have to pay attention to two things to gleen what really happened here in my opinion 1. If the skinny kid wasn't a bully why in the hell did he start a fight with the kid hes huge in comparison, just screams this kid has issues. 2. He still doesn't get it he admits to not being sorry and says he hit the bigger get cause he called him an idiot.
Break it down according to those two things alone.
Little scrawney kid gets called an idiot, faces off with a much larger kid and throws multiple unanswered punches.
Larger kid tries to leave is backed into the wall both hands held low non defensive or offensive and allows multiple punches to land on him before fighting back.
Seriously this is tragic shouldnt be open to debate this isnt just about bullying its also about ones right to self defense, I agree these are children and at this point they have all the time in the world to progress to upstanding citizens but right here right now it seems clear which child needs counciling for anger issues.
And a more cohesive plan needs to be put into place to assure this type of thing doesnt happen more than it does. But for now while not condoning violence of any kind from either side I don't have a problem with the biggers kids response although it could have been devastaing. I think that based on the bigger childs demeanor he gets it and will handle it better in the future the other child if they dont get him into counciling and change his attitude he is on a rd to nowhere fast.
