Burlington Bullies Caught in Facebook Video

There’s a video out there, it’s on Facebook, and it shows several middle school aged boys teasing, pushing, and hitting another boy at Perkins Park, and stealing his hat.

It’s relatively tame, but it’s gone viral. With all the focus lately on bullying, it’s drawn the attention of the school district and law enforcement…

“I think it’s criminal, and we’ll pursue it as such until we’re told differently. Just want everyone to  know that the department is aware of it and we will address it”

-Burlington Police Chief Doug Beaird at last night’s City Council Meeting.

    I’m so glad this got posted to one media outlet…maybe others will follow. Hopefully it will go viral nationally and call some attention to a problem that many just want to ignore. I don’t live in Burlington any more, but I did catch this on Facebook yesterday. It’s horrible. Even though it may be “relatively tame”, it’s still bullying. The school district and the police need to be involved and all four (this includes the girl videoing it) need to be punished. The school district needs to adopt (and enforce) a zero tolerance policy. The Burlington PD need to work harder on the crime that is hitting Burlington. The “one sock” is a gang message….get it under control NOW!

    Im glad that something is being done about this case! But what about all the other acts of violence and bullying being done? My son has been bullied by a neighbor and ended up causing him to have stiches because of the bully. NOTHING was done about that and apparently nothing will be done because the police think it was an accident.. its total bs for any bullying to be going on point blank period!!! #pissed off mama
