Being the genius that I am, I did not check if it was already posted. So the moderator is free to delete this thread or to merge it with the other thread.


A high school bully went up to Korean classmate, called him a racial slur, then escalated to a punch in the mouth. The Korean kid responded in kind by breaking the bully's nose with his left hand which was his weaker hand.

What is bullshit is that the Korean kid has been suspended and at one point was ordered to be expelled even though he was target. The Korean kid has never been in trouble and in fact is an excellent student and has never caused any trouble at school.

One thing that is ironic is that the kid is a black belt in Tae Kwon Do, yet he never kicked the guy.

What is really cool is that the Korean kid's classmates banded together 400 strong in protest of his suspension and now the case is being reviewed as a hate crime because of the bully's words and actions.

One of things that always pissed me off about school is that if someone attacks you and you defend yourself, you both get suspended for fighting. I think that is a bad policy for two reasons:

1. If a kid decides not to defend himself out of fear of suspension and is unable to run away he may end up getting seriously injured or even killed especially in this day and age.

2. If the kid knows he is going to be suspended for protecting himself, than he might think "to hell with this" and ending up beating the attacker within an inch of his life because he has nothing to lose at that point.

A bully getting injured through an act of self defense is always a good thing because that is the only way they learn not to be bullies.

It sounds primitive, but you have to remember these are degenerates that do not understand the concepts of being civilized human being.

Yeah it's **** logic but think of the whole "do we know who hit who first" argument. Principals and school boards are naturally distrustful of students now due to the usual suspects of school shootings, drugs and gang violence. They just don't want to be responsible if there is the least bit of legal liability involved.
