Bully gets a hard lesson
Bravo! Good job!! Thanks for stepping in! Thanks for coming to the rescue! A modern day Batman!
At Huntington Beach High School, California, there exists a student who has displayed amazing character at the young age of 17; this boy’s name is Cody Pines. He intervened because it was the right thing to do. It was the right thing to do. The officer said the argument had begun after the victim walked past his tormenter, and quickly escalated into a physical fight.
Another student saw the fight and intervened to prevent the suspect from further assaulting the victim,’ Marlatt said in a news release. Students told KCAL9 the visually impaired student was attacked for no reason.
The parents of Cody Pines must be, and should be, so proud. He stepped in when needed, and protected the underdog. He handled the situation, and didn’t go overboard. One punch, that’s all it took. He then gave fair warning to the bully to never touch this kid again.
How great for this kid, he no longer has to worry about getting beat up at school … It’s a nice way to go through your day, unafraid …
Sometimes, most of the time, if you put fear into people about the consequence, that’s all it takes, it won’t have to come to the point of an actual beating Parents should start putting fear into their kids about what might happen to them when they get home from school if they misbehave, like back in the day, remember …
“put the fear of God into them” – to frighten you a lot.
Meanwhile, the parents of “Noah,” should be horrified at the behavior of their boy … It’s on video, so they can’t say, it wasn’t my boy. Maybe Noah needs “the fear of God put into him.”
The teen tormenter, Noah, was arrested for misdemeanor battery and released to his parents after a video of him hitting his visually impaired peer, Austin, at Huntington Beach High School circulated on social media, police said.
Sometimes, social media comes in handy.
There’s no denying what happened. It also seems the bully is somewhat taller than his victim, so as well as the victim being partially blind (he can only see out of one eye), he’s smaller in stature. Wow … makes it a little worse, don’t you think?
Didn’t anyone ever tell Noah to pick on someone his own size?
We can only hope Noah, and his parents, learn from this experience. There is always going to be someone bigger and stronger than you, to put you in your place. If you’re already conducting yourself properly, you won’t have to worry about any consequence.
We should bring back another mantra from back in the day, “treat others the way you want to be treated.” Luke 6:31 “Treat others the same way you want them to treat you.”
Maybe Noah hasn’t heard this enough. Sometimes, all it takes is someone to knock, literally “knock” some sense into a bully. Now they know, there are consequences to the actions.
I’m sure Noah is “a good boy,” as they always are described by their parents, but the video shows otherwise, in this instance. In this instance. We won’t judge his entire life by this one episode, but he’s going to experience some backlash … consequences…
Kids fight, kids don’t get along with all the other kids, it’s been going on since the beginning of time, but in this day and age, to pick on a smaller kid with a visual disadvantage, is particularly offensive. Life is tough enough, without being picked on at school.
“Huntington Beach High School firmly believes that all students are afforded an opportunity to learn in a safe and secure environment. Because of this, safety is the highest priority,” it said in a statement to the news. “Huntington Beach High School has a very strong anti-bullying code of conduct and will not condone this type of behavior from any student.”
And where were the adults from the school? Why did a student have to come to the rescue? (Which said student will probably be punished for his heroics by said school).
Kudos Cody! Kudos to Cody’s parents! Both jobs well done!!
