These pictures are disturbing. They show a badly beaten teenager who was attacked by bullies on his way home from school in South Wales. Look at how swollen his face is, who could have done this? The boy, 15, had reportedly just gotten off the school bus when he was attacked. His jaw was broken, and he was taken to the hospital.
One 17-year-old boy was arrested for this crime and is now out on bail. A family friend, Sarah Davies posted the photos in the hopes of finding the people responsible. She, with the permission of the family, is asking anyone with information to call the police.
As you can imagine once social media got a hold of these photos, they circulated quickly and elicited comments. According to the police report, the attack happened at about 4 pm on February 8, 2017.
The victim had just gotten off the bus at Woodland Place when he sustained serious facial injuries. The punishment of bullying to this degree should have a serious penalty. We cannot allow young people to get away with this.
What kind of adults will they become? Parents, it is up to you to talk to your children about the dangers of bullying. Don’t allow your children to be bullies.
Teach your children to be kind to one another and be supportive and helpful.
Children are not born with hate. Hate and anger are learned. Be nice to your children and raise them to be responsible.
