Delinquent Under-age Bully gets a slap on the hand after video beating went viral and petitions demanded action

Zach Huston, a freshman at Unioto High School in Chillicothe, Ohio, was the subject of a beating, caught on video that went viral online. He says that without the October 17 attack being filmed, faculty and administrators would have taken little action against his assailant. Even his mother has been the subject of controversy online with people saying she is only looking to profit from her son's beating. What a bunch of low life snobs to think that a mother, defending her gay son, is more worried about money than ensuring the safety of her son.

Zach has continued back at school, refusing to give in to the bullies and taunts he endures every day, both at school and online by cyberbullying. An attorney, retained on his behalf, has issued a notice that there will be repercussions for the lack of actions taken by school administrators, the student responsible for the beating, and the apparent refusal to end the bullying of Zack and others.

I applaud his mother for not only accepting her son, but for standing against those who wish to harm him. People need to take a stand against bullying before this happens again and we lose any more teens to suicide.
