The handling of textbook bullies is broken beyond repair. My friends brother is in the seventh grade at my old public school. Good kid, kind of introverted however. Some girl has been full on fighting the poor kid. Back in September, she threw his glasses outside of the schoolyard into this little swampy area and started pulling his hoodie over his head. Now, this kid is blind as a bat, and even if he hadn't literally had the wool pulled over his eyes, he still wouldn't see his hand in front of his face because his glasses are gone. Now, she starts punching him when he's given this bogus handicap in this "fight" and he starts flailing, naturally. From what I know, he wasn't punching back, just waving his arms around, completely defenseless. She accidentally gets hit and a teacher breaks it up. For flailing his arms in blindness, he's given a one week suspension. Apparently, her punishment is still in the works, but this happened in September, and I'm not stupid. She's completely off the hook for definition assault, and for not even fighting back, he's not allowed to show his face in the building for seven days, along with his parents having to pay for new glasses, of all people. Let that sink in.
