A boy was being bullied by several older boys. These boys hung him on a fence, and when he fell off, hung him in a tree. His friend attempted to intervene and was tackled. Adults were just driving by doing nothing. One woman stopped to help. Good grief this poor kids assault is on Youtube. I saw it on the View. Sick, Sick Sick!

Seriously it makes you wonder how come more adults do not try and stop this type of thing instead of just driving by and acting like it is no Big deal. Makes you wonder what will it take for more people to choose to want to step up and get involved before we see more deaths again from bullying as well. I would hope somehow the parents of the kids doing the bullying would step in and want to help out the kid their kids hurt, or be a little responsible for their childs actions as well.

I think the real reason why adults stay aside, is that they have no love in their hearts and they are selfish and egocentric. These type of people are danger to all people which are near them, as they are latent abusers and killers. They have no feelings nor empathy. It is pity some people occupy space on earth.

I call the police and try to get a photo of the bullies to give to them. I'm not capable of defending myself against several opponents.

I've read or heard that kids nowadays purposely do stuff like that & film it just to post on YouTube to become popular. That's just absurd. As an adult, I'll definitely intervene as I utterly hate such stuff. Sad to say, the world is getting sicker each day. Yet one man can make a difference. Let that one man be you & me. All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing. Edmund Burke

So unfortunate that this day and age bullying is so escolated leading to deaths. It is no longer the teasing, picking on or fist fighting anymore. I know as a parent I would do everything in my power to protect my child. I do realize that at times as parents we are at time left powerless due to gang activities. I could not simply just drive by, maybe drive to clear area and call police and or do something. Poor kids.
