In one of the STUPIDEST things I have heard all day, a Maryland teen was bullied while being interviewed on TV about BULLYING!
Seriously – what is wrong with people?
Full Article but…
Here’s the breakdown:
1. Boy suspended from Frederick County school for three days after fighting back against another bully.
2. Local News Station decides to do a piece on bullying, and to interview Boy.
3. As the Boy gets ready for his interview, “three boys approached and one began hitting him in the head” [WHAG-TV].
4. Boy runs to get help.
5. Cameras keep rolling.
Warning: The video may piss you off.
Frankly, I am more than just annoyed by this – I am seriously questioning how this happens ON-CAMERA — AND NO ONE CALLS THE POLICE.
The reporter witnessed a crime. She had video of the perpetrators. What should she do?
Call Police. Oh wait – give it to the school officials! That’s a GREAT idea.
On the bright side, his MOM sure is happy:
“I’m hoping now that they take this more seriously than what they have,” Cheryl Deener told the station.
The school system is now “investigating”.
