    Unfortunately, the victim apparently was not skilled in Krav Maga.
    Had he been, he would have been able to stop the attack and persuaded the bully to put the victim’s name at the end of a very long bully list.

    I would imagine if every student in the Mount Vernon Middle School would write down the name of someone who has bullied them, we would find out there are very few bullies, just the same ones causing all the problem’s.  Then put the bullies into a program to help them.  There is a reason they feel they have to bully someone.  If that doesn’t work, then let the victim defend him/her self.  I think in this case if the teacher had ask the ‘bully’ more questions instead of saying he would be in trouble, might have stopped the attack.  And that’s what it was, an Attack, so i hope the victims parents take the ‘bully’ to court.

    Whoever this boy is…..his criminal career is just now starting. Teenagers nowdays are violate, cruel, & unteachable. I’m sure we will be seeing his name in the paper from now on. Such a shame!

    I hope he gets whats coming to him for being a bully!
