    Link: Chubby Kid And His Bully: What Happened To Them? - Well, we were all wondering if the kid got in trouble and what happened to the bully. The outcome still seems unfair.

    If people could just make this a bigger deal and give the chubby kid som more recognition, so much recognition that the principal will see it and give the chubby kid a price, a price so big that everyone in the school will yell "Winning, Winning, Winning"

    It`s pretty normal for both sides to get a suspension in school. I do disagree with it, though. I`d say that little kid had plenty of chances to stop, and the bigger kid calmly neutralized the situation and went about his day. Sure he could of stuck around and whooped on him some more but he didn`t, good for him.

    I agree that both should be suspended, but 4 days for the kid that was getting bullied is a little too much.

    I think the outcome was reasonable. If both kids got the same punishment it would be unfair, but 4 days vs. 21 days is pretty good.

    I thought it was even funnier when that kid got dropped. Dunno why riseplease19 didn`t find it funny. That kid clearly deserved it.

    As for suspension? The zero tolerance poo is BS. That kid clearly stood there trying to stop the fight for awhile before finally fighting back. Teaching kids it`s never okay to use violence is hippie bullpoo. Sometimes you DO have to use violence.

    I`m happy that the aggressor got 21 days, and the big kid only 4. Too often the school `pencil pushers` just suspend BOTH kids an equal amount, evidence (and common sense) be damned!
    I agree it`s too bad he was punished at all, I think he displayed amazing restraint.

    Don`t really think it`s the best caption for this article considering the kid has been bullied about his weight for years!

    I agree with them both being suspsended, schools can`t be seen to condone violence for any reason but I do think it`s great the bullied kid only got 4 days.

    Four day suspension for what was clearly self-defence? Next time, fatty needs to hold onto that kid`s ankles while face planting him onto pavement. If you`re going to get reprimanded, might as well make sure it`s earned. Besides, that bully-twig will definitely exact revenge some day (soon) so stay tuned.

    Lastly, do we really know for certain why fatty was target of being bullied? He may have done something unseen in video to cause the bully to be agressive towards him and therefore earn the 4 day detention.

    (kinda felt good watching it though)

    Seems pretty fair to me, I loved watching that video but even if it was self defence it was excessive and he needed some sort of punishment. A few days off school to let the situation cool down was actually probably a good thing and its not as if the bully got off lightly, 21 days suspension is a punishment, 4 days is a holiday.

    I think it`s fair. 4 days is nothing compared to what the other kid got. a body slam seemed to be a little bit over the top. If all he did was push him away, then I don`t think there should have been any punishment.

    Getting suspended for defending himself is a load of crap. What the fat kid did wasn`t excessive at all. If anything, he used too little force. The bully was unharmed and walked away, so I`m sure he`ll be back again.

    this is the world we live in today thanks to today parents. they teach kids to be WUSSIES of the first order.

    if you defend yourself you get suspended too for being "violent".

    BULLCRAP. parents, stop coddling your children and teach them to EARN accolades and praise and what right is and what wrong is. When their teach calls your home complaing about them, DO NOT defend the brat, spank his/her ass.

    oh and yes I have kids, so don`t bother. there are few real parents left these days and all we have now are parents teaching children they are "special" no matter what...sorry but that is BS.

    this kid defended himself and should be praised for it not suspended.

    Everyone is saying "The bully was ok, he`s fine no halm done."

    Look at the potential? He was turned upsidedown and thrown into conrete. It was so close to his head a hit like that could of actually killed him.

    That kid deserved a smack. A few smacks. A good kick. But not that.

    So I can see why they would suspend him as well. But look, it was only 4 days. That`s nothing.

    Same thing happened to me once. I was being beat up and I pushed a guy down the stairs. I got suspended for a week. He got 2 weeks.

    HA! Only four days for a body slam like that? I almost got suspended for giving a friend a joking slap upside the head, I was afraid they would have expelled the poor chubby kid. Let this be a lesson to tiny aggressors that being skinny doesn`t give them the upper hand because it just means they`re easier to throw around like rag dolls! If this were my kid I`d let him do whatever he wanted during those four days.

    On the one hand, I see the point of suspending both kids, since both of them resorted to violence. We should always try to teach kids to find better solutions.

    On the other hand, I totally feel for the big kid. That was me when I was in school, and trust me...the little Gollum bullies NEVER get in proper trouble. Teachers, parents, principals, etc...seemed to ignore the situation, until I took things into my own hands and then I was the only one to get in trouble. I say, good on the big kid :)

    The fat kid did not want to resort to violence but what he did was necessary. The bullying would have continued indefinitely unless he defended himself. By letting people know that he would defend himself, he has stopped the bullying.

    I dunno, some people would embrace the time off from school for the suspension. Everytime a kid messed with me in jr high, I made SURE the yard lady saw me break the punks nose. 4 days off from a place I hated for standing up for myself. I now tell my son that he will NEVER be in trouble at home when he gets suspended for standing up to a bully.

    "Look at the potential? He was turned upsidedown and thrown into conrete. It was so close to his head a hit like that could of actually killed him."

    And the punches that little kid threw in the first place could have killed the "chubby kid" (whose name is Casey, I believe).

    If you start the violence, you have no right to complain when it escalates back at you.

    Casey resorted to violence in response to a violent assault that had been made, and was continuing, against him. He acted to stop the assault, and was successful. He did not then continue to fight back once the assault had been stopped; he walked away rather than continuing to hurt the little kid (which he was clearly quite capable of doing).

    In my book, that makes it an act of self-defence. If I were his father, I`d be behind him 100%, and he`d spend those four days having all the fun he wanted.

    Of course it sucks that the kid defending himself got suspended, but there are reasons schools have and must have a zero-tolerance policy on fighting. They mitigated his punishment - but whether one starts it or not, fighting in school will get you in trouble.

    I feel like four days is pretty fair for the big guy. He probably could have reacted better (held the bully down for a few minutes until a teacher came by) but kudos to him for remaining calm as long as he did. He gave the bully many chances to leave him alone, but I guess the bully just really wanted to get his sh*t f**ked up.

    I used to get bullied, so I`m glad the bullied kid came out of it alright.
    Still shouldn`t have been suspended, he was defending himself, it`s not like it wasn`t provoked.

    I think it`s a disgrace. We seem to punish strength and fortitude at every given opportunity. He should have gotten an award and a handshake. Something to the tune of, "Hey kid, that was an awesome thing you did there. You were angry, but gave the bully an opportunity to back off. And it was only until you saw that he would not that you decided to act and then walk away when you could have done more damage. Good for you..."

    But, no... Our feeble human brains think they have a concpet of what is fair, disregarding any intrinsic, ontological value whatsoever...

    *obhwfgirl, are you fuxking serious? If this isn`t the first time the bigger kid`s been pushed around, good on him. This is exactly what self defense is. He removed the threat after giving the skinny kid a chance to screw off.

    Good on him for standing up for himself, and the school board should be ashamed of themselves for suspending the kid being bullied.
