UPPER DARBY, Pa. – Seven boys, ages 13 to 17, have been arrested for their part in an alleged bullying incident caught on tape.
Back on January 11th, a 13-year-old boy was walking home from Beverly Hills Middle School when the group of teens began assaulting him on videotape.
The video is only 7 minutes of an estimated 20 minute long attack that shows the attackers kicking the boy on the ground, dragging him through the snow as he screams and stuffing him in a tree. After he falls out, he tries to make a run for it but is caught again. The group continue to punch him before hanging on a metal fence by his jacket.
Police say this goes far past the line of “kids being kids” and straight into the realm of full-blown assault, and they are taking it very seriously. They have arrested all seven boys involved. Six of them were walked out in handcuffs from an alternative school program for troubled students on the grounds of Upper Darby High School.
“And we took out the six individuals in handcuffs, put them in wagons, made sure everyone knew what we were doing and that is we’re not tolerating bullying in any way, shape, or form,” Upper Darby Police Superintendent Michael Chitwood said.
They face charges including kidnapping and false imprisonment.
Come on really? This is a bully attack? I don’t see it. What I do see is 7 dudes showing some love to a fellow student. I mean, when I saw the headline for this video I was like, “Awesome, lets see this little bro get his head smashed off his shoulders.. Oh boy.!” Then I made a whole bowl of popcorn and got ready to watch it like a Sunday Fight on Spike.
Build up, build up. Matt Lauer. Police Chief…. Where is the blood? Where are the fat black girls running around screaming like in the fast food fight videos on Worldstar? Nothing.. Not a damn one. Just some little tattle tale getting tittie twisters and pink bellied then hung on the fence by his jacket.
See, these kids arent whats wrong with America. The fact that we think this is fighting is what is wrong with America. Throwing 7 youths in jail and making them a criminal is not the right approach. All that does is set them up to become hardened criminals. Did they even take the time to look at these childs records? Or their grades? Maybe they are great students. We shouldn’t be so quick to ruin the bullies lives just because some import from another country got bullied.
I don’t know. I wouldn’t consider this a bad fight. Dude looks fine to me.. Grow some balls.
