This is VERY UN CALLED FOR!! These boys need to be punished in a way to do community service and make them work out in the community to learn what they did. The parents need to be involved in there kids lives more and this is something that should never happen!! I agree with Karen these boys shpuld be punished the whole summer till school starts again in September. No one needs to put up with that and the parents need to support the punishment of there behaviors.They need to learn from this but violence wont help it just shows and teaches them to be violent.

You are kidding right? Half of those kid's parents are white trash too. Where do you think they learned to be disrespectful potty mouths. Just because they live in the burbs doesnt mean they are saints. If they said that to a black monitor on a city bus, they'd get slapped around and then beat by their momma when they got home.

The father of one of the bullies was on the news saying how his son NOW understands he was wrong. Now that's a direct reflection of HIS parenting skills. One could only imagine what conversations are like in their household.
