That Teen Who Defended A Blind Classmate From Being Beaten By A Bully? His High School Just Suspended Him!
UPDATE 6:34 PM EST: Contrary to initial reports, the teen who punched the first attacker did not receive any kind of punishment for stepping in and defending his classmate. Additionally, the student voluntarily left the football team at the end of the 2014-2015 school year, and was never even on this semester's roster.
You may have seen the viral video already.
When a student at Huntington Beach High School in southern California began punching another student — who was blind — a third student came to the rescue and delivered an incredible example of schoolyard justice!
It all started when a bully ran up to the blind student and started harassing and punching him — leaving the blind child virtually unable to defend himself from the unprovoked attack.
Then, seemingly out of nowhere, another kid swooped in with a knockout punch — right to the side of the bully's head!
