An alleged bully was in for a major surprise after she decided to violently attack a boy on her school bus. While the victim initially sat helplessly as she punched him in the face, pulled his hair and slapped him, his eventual reaction stunned the young woman.
In video of the attack that was captured on a cell phone and subsequently uploaded to YouTube, the vicious assault unfolds as another boy begs off-camera for the girl to stop.
But she doesn’t listen.
As the berating and beating continues, the victim desperately tries to shield and protect himself, but to no avail.
But then something changes. When the alleged bully starts kicking the boy in the head, he springs to his feet and starts fighting back.
The tables instantaneously turn, as he grabs at her hair and puts her in a headlock, at one point seemingly dragging her over one of the seats; choking sounds can be heard.
The scene isn’t easy to watch.
“Get his hand off my eye please,” the girl says in the midst of the brawl, a hint of desperation replacing her once-aggressive tone.
Another boy — presumably the girl’s brother — becomes dismayed by what’s unfolding and he steps in to try and stop the bullying victim from getting his revenge.
Eventually, the brawl ends and the girl who seemingly started it all looks completely stunned by her victim’s response. The boy who countered her attack then asks if she is “ok.”
Watch it all unfold below (caution: strong language and violence):
The clip is likely to create debate and a plethora of emotion. In the end, it certainly raises numerous questions about civility, youth violence and bullying.
And a natural question one might ask is: Where the bus driver was during the attack?
While it’s unclear, a female’s voice can be heard in the background saying, “I can’t stop a thing.”
“There’s nothing I can do. That’s why I tell ya’ll don’t fight,” the woman added. “Nothing to do but call the police…callin’ 911 now.”
