I was watching my local news last night and I heard about a 15 year old boy being beaten so bad at school by school mates that he was hospitalized in critical condition. I immediately felt sick to my stomach. My son is almost 15 and this really hit home. I can only imagine how this childs parents feel. From my current understanding the child may have bumped into the two 17 year olds who attacked him.
This is no reason to slam a childs face into a stair repeatedly. This just sickens me. I think these young adults who did this should be punished severely. This is tragic and absolutely uncalled for. This type of action can not be tolerated. I pray the school system takes care of this issue as well as law enforcement. I have posted the story I got from my local news also:
Manchester (WTNH) _ A 15-year old boy is in critical condition following a fight at Manchester High School. Two other teens are under arrest in connection to the assault.
Police say the fight happened Thursday morning around 7:30. A school resource officer found the 15-year old bleeding in a stairway in a semi-conscious state. The boy was transported to St. Francis Hospital in Hartford and is listed in serious condition. His name has not been released.
Two 17-year old boys face a slew of charges including assault, risk of injury to a minor, and conspiracy to commit assault. Their names are not being released due to their age.
No word if the school will take disciplinary action.
What are your thoughts?
