On January 16, 2012 a student in Chicago was bullied and severely beaten by seven students. The video is horrific and hard to watch.
It shows the six teens mercilessly beating and tormenting an Asian man while one of them films. They steal his money, shoes, and backpack. They throw sucker punches and kick him while he is down, laughing and saying things like “Am I speaking Chinese to you, nigga?”
This example of extreme violence and bullying cannot be tolerated in the city of Chicago. These young criminals must be held accountable for their actions and steps should be taken to educate young people about the dangers of bullying.
Please join us in calling on the Chicago Police Department to arrest and charge all seven students involved with the beating and for their schools to hold them accountable. We're also asking that Chicago Public Schools establish an anti-bullying course that all seven students attend before being allowed back to school.
The attackers in the video are:
