This attack took place at Union-Scioto High School in Chillicothe, Ohio.
Here's more info:
In the clip, which was filmed on a cell phone and then posted to Facebook, the attacker, who has not been named, can be seen waiting for the gay student, who wishes to remain anonymous, in a classroom.This is unacceptable! The student should be arrested and the school needs to act on the safety of gay students. It's such a shame this happening in the schools and no one jumped in to stop this! I have to ask... Is it getting better?
Once the student arrives, the bully begins severely beating "the holy living crap out of him," says his mother.
Even though the boy tried to get away and asked "Why are you doing this?" the attack continued.
WSYX reports the student received a possible concussion and a chipped tooth.
The student also says that the perpetrator wrote "Check out the definition of a faggot" on his Facebook page two days earlier.
The attacker received three days suspension, but the mother of the gay student says that is not good enough and she is going to file charges.
She added, "For all those people that have hate in their hearts, they need to let it go because people are going to be who they are".
I hate to say this but, "no".
More to come on this tragedy.
