A video showing a teen girl brutally taking down a ‘bully’ has emerged online.
The footage, which was posted on Facebook, shows a teen girl throwing a boy down on the ground then smashing her knee into his face – twice – before fleeing the scene with a teacher in hot pursuit, the Sonoma Index-Tribune reports.
A woman is heard yelling, ‘Get that girl! Right now! Who is that girl?’ as the attacker runs off, leading to speculation the girl was not well known among high school students and teachers.
Allegedly the boy who was beaten had been bullying girls on the school campus and provoked the girl’s violent response. Many Facebook commentors suggested that the boy had gotten what he deserved but the school has denied the allegations.
We never condone violence in any shape or form. People are commenting on Facebook without any knowledge of the incident, and it’s just unfortunate that those are the things we deal with.
Neither the girl nor the boy can be identified from the video and the police were not called although an ambulance was contacted to check on the boy’s condition.
The video was shot on the campus of Sonoma Valley High School, and the Principal Kathleen Hawing confirmed the incident took place last Thursday.
More of a concept than a journalist, Tom Percival was forged in the bowels of Salford University from which he emerged grasping a Masters in journalism.
Since then his rise has been described by himself as ‘meteoric’ rising to the esteemed rank of Social Editor at UNILAD as well as working at the BBC, Manchester Evening News, and ITV.
He credits his success to three core techniques, name repetition, personality mirroring, and never breaking off a handshake.
