Default Child being bullied snaps.

You may have heard or seen the recent viral video of a Fat kid being bullied but only to snap and drop the runt on his head. After going viral the runts details were leaked and both were suspended.

Personally, I'm proud of that kid. I've been teased practically my entire school life and I never did a thing about it, mainly because I was too scared to. Now because I didn't do anything about it, it's haunting me in many personal aspects of my life. :/

I also find it sad that most schools promote standing up for yourself and going to a higher authority to report a problem, yet also treat it as if it's a bad thing to stand up for yourself. If you stand up for yourself, you get punished for it. If you go to a higher authority, they do practically nothing but say "back off" and it also provokes more bullying.
Or at least in this area that's what I've come into contact with.
Sometimes there may be a situation where there's no one of authority around, and you have to take matters into your own hands, yet depending on the outcome, you still get punished for it. It's very sickening.
I've also heard that at some schools, if a teacher breaks up a fight, the teacher gets the blame for the fight, hence why they can't do much of anything. It's happened to my bf's grandma, and it cost her, her back, as well as her job.

However, if I were in that situation now, I would stand up for myself, and I will raise a ruckus if the school tries to suspend me for it. Schools shouldn't be promoting "stand up for yourself" if they're not going to stand by and support it. If there must be punishment, it shouldn't be severe, and it should be explained as to why it's being given.

That kid got freaking owned. I couldn't tell if the limping was fake, but if it wasn't, he deserved it.

tbh, snapping like that was a bit extreme. You don't have to use violence to stand up for yourself, but it is important to do it. I think it's a phase that a lot of kids go through (myself included), but it takes some personal fortitude to actually do something about it. In that sense, the kid did well.

I concur. Violence ain't always the answer, but if it's going to mark your territory with a thick paint of red, then hats off to that guy for doing such a risky thing.

Although there were probably less violent ways to handle this, better that the skinny lad get taken down a peg now, rather than later in life where he could get seriously maimed for picking a fight he can't finish.

I don't blame the kid, I wouldn't let some kid sit there and punch me in the face. I think he reacted the right way, considering it will get the kid to stop.

Honestly, I think the kid was too soft on the bully. Personally, I would have thrown him against the wall.

I have anger issues. I almost killed 3 kids cuz they bullied me. I had to be pulled off them. Here's my favorite experience: Kid bothers me for 5 years, I put up with it. Finally in 9th grade he throws a rock at my lip, and I snap. I charge at this kid and 3 11th grade football players try to hold me back. I shake them off. 2 of my friends try to hold me back, I shake them off. Meanwhile the bully is scared shitless, he's trying to climb a tree for safety. The only thought on my mind is how easy I can break him in two. My best friend runs up and throat chops me. I pass out, and they escort me to the main office where I recieve no punishment. The bully gets a week of suspension and I talk the dean out of suspending my best friend (he throat chopped me: physical contact that causes harm=suspension in my school, hence why I was not suspended). The best part: on our walk home the bully didn't learn his lesson and threw twigs at me and my best friend. So i look at my bro and he just nods his head. I pretend to snap and run at him, and he pisses his pants and runs home. He has not caused me any problems since.

That kid got every part of that deserved. But what really struck me, was that older girl not doing anything. She stopped the bigger boy from hitting the kid but not before the bullied kid dropped the bully.

I think it's all down to parenting. I believe the bully's parents may not have taught him to accept people the way they are, or maybe he's just deprived of something. I used to bully kids when I was little, but that's because I was in boarding school and hardly ever saw my mum, I wasn't taught. Environment and influence, I think.

But the kid who was being bullied, I can't really blame him. Enough was enough for him, and I'm sure the bully won't bother him anymore. It's unfortunate that some kids don't know how much damage they can cause.

Good job, bigger kid.

Anyone who's ever been to a school knows that if you get bullied, you're on your own. Teachers won't help you, school won't help you, parents can't help you, and the other kids sure aren't going to. So, unfortunately, the only way to get it to stop is to fight back. (Anyone who's ever been to a school also knows that ignoring, avoiding, or trying to be nice to bullies or telling the teachers never works.) I'm very glad this kid was one of the ones who was able to fight back. Sure, violence isn't the best way to solve anything, but nobody was going to help this kid (and even if they wanted to, they probably couldn't do anything), so it was probably only a matter of time before he snapped.
