And the attacker is wearing black military style assault shoes.  We need common sense legislation to curb this kind of shoe violence.

I think it's exemplary that this kid refused to stoop to violence.

It took me along time to figure that out but now I walk the path of righteousness, you know, like Kung Fu except without all the messy auto-erotic asphyxiation part because that's just passive aggressive towards maids and cleaning staff.

Seriously. I got my ass kicked all the time. I was teased and harassed for being a fat kid, smart, and nerdy. (Yes, the anime and video games might have helped). I couldn't fight back because the other kids were fit and much faster. They'd punch me and run off, and then laugh when I'd give chase.

Got fed up. Put cayenne pepper in a little container, got off the bus first, turned around and threw the pepper in the face of my long-time assailant, and then beat his ass while he was stuck in the doorway. First time I ever won a fight. It was also, coincidentally, the last time I ever *had* to fight. The assholes left me alone after that. I couldn't best them with physical prowess, so I had to even the odds and fight dirty.

Of course, this was 1993. It was a different time.

Snort: Teknowaffle: Nickcole Whitfield, of Wilkinsburg, said her son, Aisa, 13, attends Wilkinsburg Middle School.

Well there's your answer to why he gets the shiat kicked out of him all the time.

Anyone could tell that is a geeky/Aspergers kind of name.  Might as well have named him "Beat me."


Maybe the bully's name is Chaprelle, and he wants to divert attention.

maelstrom0370: Only bullying CSB I have:

It's 1st grade and I'm getting terrrorized by this 2nd or 3rd grader every day. Fights in the school yard, chases me home, the whole nine yards. My dad, for reasons I can't recall, taught me how to make a "slush ball" (It was winter time).
So I'm running home, again, and I desperately scoop up a double handful of slush and snow (thinking I could distract him or something). I wad it up, turn and blindly throw it back at him.
I take no credit whatsoever. To this day, I swear the God of picked on children guided my snowball. In making my hastily packed slush ball, I must've scooped up some gravel as well. It hit him square on the nose and busted it open like a ripe melon. Next thing I knew, there was screaming and blood...LOTS of blood! I ran home crying I was so scared. This was 1976 or '77 so there were no lawsuits or anything like that. All I knew was he had a bandage over his nose the next day, his face was swollen up and I never got chased home again.
No ITG, I didn't exploit the fact that he didn't chase me. I was still scared of him and avoided him at all costs. It wasn't until years later that I realized he also started avoiding me!!
As for the rest of my school years, I hit my growth spurt when I was 12 and was 6'3" in the 5th grade. I wasn't a tough guy by any means, just big enough to make other guys think twice.


Similar CSB, bro!  When I was in 6th or 7th grade I was chased home daily by a big high schooler in my neighborhood.  One day he almost caught me, but I turned mid-stride and threw my backpack at him.  To my surprise, it tangled up his legs and he sprawled/skid into the grass, totally ruining his perfectly white Miami Vice style pants.  I kept on running and got about 50 ft away.

He was pissed.  First he yelled at me for ruining his pants, then he yelled, "You'll have to get your backpack sometime!".  I told him to keep it.  Let him try to explain to my parents why he had it.  Then he spun up like a shot-putter and flung the backpack toward me.  No more chases after that, but did have one further run-in with him.  But that's a CSB for another time.

One particular bully was constantly giving me shiat in middle school.  One day I was walking home after a side trip to 7-11 for a drink (RC Cola, 16 oz glass bottle, old school) when I hear girl yell "Look out!"  Of course I turned around and got punched in the face by my nemesis.  I immediately broke the soda bottle on the sidewalk and started for him.  His eyes popped out and he started running like crazy.  It's probably best that I did not catch him, but it was the last time he messed with me.

I was a scrawny little kid and rarely won fights.  On the other hand, I probably make more than all the people who bullied me combined.

Good old fashion kick in the face.


I love that the bully's girlfriend is there to comfort him after things went so horribly wrong.

Hell, I went to a solid, all male private school. When the geeks and smart guys got bullied, we got creative. I helped a friend of mine build what amounted to a stun gun from batteries and capacitors, one guy carried a decent set of homemade nunchaku (and practiced until he was pretty good) and it was not uncommon for a bully's floppy disc to "mysteriously" get erased the day before a paper was due.

Yeah, I was getting the crap beat out of me by a kid daily too. My uncle told me to walk around with my Algebra book all day, and the first time I saw him, just whack him in the face with it as hard as I could. That one hit farked him up because he was looking into his locker when it came. Never a problem after that.

These days I'd be in jail, I guess.


see? the teacher was right... Algebra is useful in real life.

dj_bigbird: Bullying is an evolutionary/biological imperative. It's a way for the strong to weed out the weak from the gene pool (or for the weak to find the strength to fight back and become one of the strong). If the bullying were carried to its logical conclusions, these weaklings would be destroyed and they wouldn't pollute the gene pool.  Females see the dominance of the strong ("bullies") and want to mate with them, thus producing a stronger offspring.


Or the weak to gang together in large groups, producing civilization.

WhyKnot: As a father of grade schoolers, although we have avoided any bullying this far, it is a concern.

I think if my kid was beat up or continually picked on, my first stop would be the principal next would be the police. Next I would find out who the parents are (including following the bully home I needed). I would confront, threaten if needed, the ass-bags and tell them if anything happens, I will be back. If it continues I would be back at the kids house to follow through on my threat. Additionally, I would make a poster of the kid and publicly sham him/her. If the school or parents had an issue with the shaming I would confront them (on camera) asking why they are so worried about protecting a bully, but not the victims of such bullying.

I wasn't picked on, so I don't expect my kids to be picked on... kids seem to walk the same line the parents walked.


You are terrifying and sound insane.

A Shambling Mound: Speaking strictly from my own experiences in middle and high school, the only thing that prevented further harassment from the fighting types was a concerted effort on my part to hurt them badly enough the first time that consideration was required before engaging in additional physical violence.  Not sayin' I didn't get my ass kicked, because I did. Just sayin' I usually only got my ass kicked once.

No intervention required on the part of parents, school administration or the police.


You might want to re-read that.

I was not Rambo delivering righteous beat-downs to the big bad bullies. I was a scrawny little dork biting, scratching, kicking and generally just trying to make them work for it. I can't say I've ever "won" a fight, but most of the kids that picked fights with me didn't do it again. To be fair though I don't think anyone wins a fight, either you get beat up or you're a barely evolved ape that has to hit people to feel better. No winners there.

If you want to take that as some kind of "internet tough guy" statement feel free but I will feel just as free to assume you're an idiot.

Yes, because every kid ever bullied just stood there and took it.  Not one kid ever fought back. Ever.

Not fighting back is a sign of intelligence, as walking away probably keeps him from getting seriously hurt by this gang of canadians. Unfortunately for this poor soul, the system forces him to endure the agression for years and years.  Seriously, bullied kids have it worst than most adults.  Once you grow up you can complain, change jobs, sue, threaten to sue etc, etc.
