What do you think?

Personally I feel that bullying is so rampant these days everywhere, so severe cases like this, it is good that further action be taken so that the big-time young bullies will stop their nonsense. It is also a wake-up call for parents with kids who love to bully.

Defendent's father said "If it was so serious, surely the teacher would have intervened? I don't know what they want, but is it serious enough to sue? This has been very traumatising for my son."




:? fracture in right wrist and head injuries is not serious ? :!: :x

This is shocking. This is really becoming the situation of children, and them thinking that it is "normal" to hurt their friends by watching shows such as "Together", the Fann Wong show, and other shows like "Fighting Spiders". This is, bluntly, scary..

I wrote a long post just now; somehow, it got lost, darn.

Whatever is being said, the facts are clear - that Peter's son tied up and hit the other boy. I wonder about the other boys involved. And to think Peter himself shows no remorse! How to teach his son this way?!

Perhaps this way when the father's pocket is hit, he will pay attention and start to correct his son. :celebrate:

Yeah this is a case where everyone else is wrong except them......the doctor has to produce evidence of the boy's injury, can that be fabricated? I don't think the doctor plan to retire so early...........

Sigh! Both boys are pitiful. The victim got physically hurt, the aggressor will live with a life of emotional imbalance... Why like that? :( Anger management issues?

There will always be parents who think that their children are angels and not capable of committing any wrong. The usual excuse that I heard from parents when someone pointed out their child's fault is "there is someone in school who must have influenced my son/daughter". So, their child cannot be the one who is bad. :roll:
