And nobody stopped it, including the two ADULTS on board!
Three Long Island teens face serious charges of assault and harassment after they brutally tormented a young 14-year-old boy they believed was gay. The teens, two 16 and one 18, have reportedly been bullying the kid for awhile, but only this week did things turn violent.
According to police, the three teens allegedly kicked and slapped the 14-year-old while taking the bus to school on Tuesday. The harassment continue yesterday, as they got in his face and began berating him. On both occasions, two adult females were present, the driver and the monitor, but neither of them intervened, nor did they report the situation as they should.
We can understand not wanting to put yourself in a violent situation, that can be scary. But why would you keep quiet? That poor boy was being BEATEN and you just turned a blind eye?! How heartless!
Two of the teens were charged with third-degree assault, a misdemeanor, and second-degree aggravated harassment, a felony. The other was only charged with third-degree assault.
We hope they get everything that is coming to them for tormenting someone like that!
And to that 14-year-old, we says this: IT GETS BETTER!
