Good for you, chin up!
Today in school, after I spoke at National Honor's Society convention in the auditorium, I see two sophmores absolutely wailing on each other. The second bell had rung at least two minutes previous and I had left the NHS reception early to go to history.
It's about 7:30, and I see a big, muscular bully versus a little sh*t dork. Maybe 100+ yards down the hall, see the bully on top of the helpless dork, who is so beaten into oblivion by now he isn't even fighting back, just trying to get into a fetal position to protect himself. Now, the little kid is unconscious, so I figured the bully was going to spit on him and walk away. Once the bully walked away, I was going to pick the kid and make sure he wasn't dead. That wasn't the case. The bully proceeds to walk away and pick up a lead pipe from the open janitor's closet and begin to hit little man on the head. No pussy shots, full force swings. The small boy began to moan, had a white fluid running out of his nose and was bleeding out of the ears.
I got scared sh*tless that he was going to murder the kid, so I drop my books and literally sprint down the hallway as fast as I can. I gave his neck a running headlock and tossed him at the wall, which ricoched him into a locker 15 feet in front of him. The kid springs up up and gives me a roundhouse to the nuts and a crack in the jaw. Seeing that I was in danger, I grabbed him by the neck and started an assault of punches to his stomach and chest, snapping his collarbone in two with one of them. Then, I heard him wheezing like when you try a ciggarette for the first time, so I grabbed him by the armpits and tried to toss him at the wall. I missed, so instead he goes sailing through half-inch thick glass (first floor) and onto a bush outside. Hearing him screaming and crying from all the glass in his back and his broken collarbone, I spit the blood out of my mouth and run over to the beyond-battered nerd now with some serious head trauma.
I immediatly whip out my cell phone and call 911, then sprint down the hall to the security desk, only to find that they already heard the ruckus and were at the scene when I returned. A LifeStar helicopter landed in front of the freaking school because the nearest hospital is about thirty minutes out and considering the degree of head trauma the little guy has, they rush into the school. About half the school is now crammed into the hallway trying to get a glimpse of what's going on.
By now, LifeStar is already inbound to the hospital with the little guy. The fight instigator gets bandages on his back and a sling for his collarbone and is arrested on the spot. I figured since I gave my testimony to the police officers and school security about two dozen times, I begin to walk away. Not so fast.
Vice principal kicks open his office door and screams for two security guards to "get me." They literally tackle me and then next thing I know I'm in handcuffs. He had me charged with TWO COUNTS OF AGGRAVATED ASSAULT, BREACH OF PEACH AND DESTRUCTION OF PROPERTY.
Admin's claim that when I threw the bully through the glass to prevent the murder of a helpless student, I was acting "in my own interests to participate in a fight." They also claim that even if I was acting in self defence, the "destruction of school property was unnecessary and reckless." Then they had the balls to claim that when I ran to find security I was "fleeing the scene of a crime."
Because this happened so early, I faced a magistrate at 10 sharp this morning. The school's attorney's come in and say that they're dropping the charges. No arrest would be on my record, but I was ordered back to school to have a meeting with my parents in front of the superintendant and my principal.
After a big shouting match between parents, students who witnessed the fight from outside and even damn security guards who were watching the tape, trying to defend me, they put me up for expulsion by the school board. The deliberation is at 7:30 tonight at town hall.
Once word got out to my classmates, local News Channel 8 reported that out of 1,500 students at my school, over 600 walked out of their last three classes and stood around of the flagpole, refusing to move. Numerous teachers and other faculty members were also involved. The president of the student council, who's also one of my closest friends, received a permit to have a demonstration outside town hall tonight.
What a crazy day.
Wish me luck tonight.
jesus man talk about crazy stuff. good luck
given the school boards acting maybe the message was if you see sombody getting murdered dont do anyhting since you might get arrested or otherwise in trouble

Sounds like fun. Your defense at the meeting should be that you regret having to protect yourself and another student but had no choice as the school is unable or unwilling to provide said protection. If it gets any thicker, threaten to sue for the security guards that put their hands on you.
Good luck man, you did the absolutely right thing.
The part that perplexes me is that I've had ONE detention for my entire high school career, and that was gum chewing. My lowest grade I've ever had in any class is an A-, and I hold office or captainship of every club and sports team that I'm on.Originally Posted by CountZero
I could slightly understand better if I was a big troublemaker or something.
[EDIT] Meeting has been rescheduled for 5:45. We're thinking that they're trying to throw the protestors off. It's too bad that half of them are already outside town hall.
Exactly.....do that. ^Originally Posted by demotivater
And Hooorah for stepping up and doing the right thing!!!
Good for you! most kids just stand around and watch the little guy get beat up....you stepped in, I'm hope things turn out right, you have a lot of people behind you, I'm sure they will
Good to see someone had the balls to cowboy up and do the right thing. Well done
I'm glad someone stood up. Be proud, no matter what happens.
Good on ya mate. I guarantee you just made a friend for life with the little one.
And no matter what the outcome, go and see the kid if you can. He may not know you, but he deserves to know you helped him out.
You rawk!! I demand custom title for our hero of the dorks!
Oh, and fight the system. it sucks in most cases.
EDIT: Did the guy that got beaten survive? Not the stereoid junkie whos ass you kicked but the dork.
You did the right thing. Good luck.
