Awesome.

Wouldn't "child not bullied in the first place" be more inspiring?

So, when the 100 people leave, the bully just resumes bullying?
 
2013-10-19 07:39:24 AM
I'd imagine needing your aunt to call in a bunch of "friends" (who are actually strangers) to stand up to a bully and then making sure the media knows about it mayhaps make you a much larger target for bullies.

But the one kid backed down... for the mob. So that's nice.

As someone who is witnessing something similar occurring with my sister and her daughter the confidence building part is actually very beneficial. Yeah, the guy will probably continue to bully the kid some more but this has to help him.

Nice to see that, even in some small way, the usually useless Facebook is indeed proven useful. The shocking part was the principal exercising restraint and good judgment by letting it happen. I'm sure Facebook will get back to the useless slacktivism with the ubiquitous 'share this blah blah blah to show your support' crap we've come to dislike so much.

Facebook used to rally 100 to stand behind boy being bullied

So they were using him as a shield?

Sadly, like most people that stand up to bullying, it probably got worse.

What's with all the cars with their hoods up? Coincidental car trouble or did they turn it into an impromptu car show?

FTA: '"The bully was there, too, and with a hundred people standing behind Halsey, the bully had a change of heart. He high-fived Halsey and said: "I apologize. I apologize. I take it back." '

So.... am I missing something, are y'all missing something, or are we supposed to agree that this reported change of heart was insincere or temporary?

It was to make a point about friendship.  All my friends know the low rider, you see.

Farking idiot people arranging themselves according to the goddamn cyber motif. Dull sheep that punish each other for trivial things until a bad thing happens and the whole situation escalates into a afterschool special. If I was a student at that school I'd take a long look around at the end of my childhood and start smoking.

I wonder when we will return to the actual definition of "bullying" instead of using the term whenever someone disagrees with us or does something we don't like.
 
2013-10-19 08:12:30 AM
On my life, if anyone ever loves me and I have a child, they will be taking martial arts classes from a young age, so they have the confidence and physical capability to stand up to bullies. I was fortunate enough to be a bigger kid with older siblings so that I could competently defend myself, but I can't imagine survicing as a bullting victim in a digital age where the bullying can spread to social networking.

I wish this would have turned into an impromptu vigilante mob violence event so this little douche would have learned a real lesson. Also, all the hoods being up and the event turning into a car show is pretty rad.

Haha, I noticed that.  Being royalty doesn't give you indestructible ankles...  I don't think she was actually playing, just making a few shots.

I think the bully found out that whomever he chooses to bully, he'll never know how many friends they CAN show up with! Until it's too late, of course...

I've always felt this to be the biggest flaw in bullying: mostly, you know you can get away with it and feel better about yourself (yeah, yeah, I know) but you only have to pick the wrong target once to end up with your ass in a sling. Luckily, my older brother got me into martial arts from age 7 so I became the "wrong target" a couple of times. Felt righteous, indeed!

Too lazy to link...

That YouTube of the fat Aussie kid being bullied is still pretty awesome. He finally has enough of it, picks up the bully, and slams him to the ground.

Not great seeing a kid get hurt, but that little bugger earned it.

The next soul-crushing link will be the parents of the "alleged bully" suing the principal, school, et al, for allowing this "gang activity and assault" on their precious butterfly.

Actually, for me, this is the most inspiring part of the story.  Nowadays I would have thought the school would have called the police right away and the SWAT team would have showed up and started firing on people.

It takes more strength to be tolerant and compassionate to those who are different than you than it does to lash out at them in an attempt to make yourself feel superior.

It takes even more strength not to just cap a tiny dicked bully.

Yup, seems like a lost art.  Quiet types like me got picked on a lot back then, and frankly, a little violence went a long way.  Often, once you sting a bully, they don't come back.  They prefer their targets to be easy marks.

I didn't learn how to handle teasing and bullying until some girl at school was twitting me and I shoved her out of her chair. She sprawled out on the floor and said, "It's about damned TIME you did something."

We're still friends 44 years later and the rest of my academic career was a breeze.

Clearly you don't know bullies. They respect power and authority, and are absolute angels when a teacher is around.

They wait until the teacher leaves or the teacher isn't looking.
 
2013-10-19 11:26:24 PM
so begins the cycle of this kid having others fight his battles for him.
this kid doesn't just have helicopter parents, he has a fleet of people watching to make sure his widdle feewings are never hurt.

/got bullied
//punched the kid in the face
///we moved on.
