      there is no excuse for this type of violence, I don’t care if they “told him to stop”, unless he was physically assaulting the girl then this is unforgivable. You make it sound like this was justified in some way, like it was the victim’s fault. If that’s the case you are no better than the animals who did this.

    ‘there is no firm reason to anticipate that the intellectual capacities of peoples geographically separated in their evolution should prove to have evolved identically. Our desire to reserve equal powers of reason as some universal heritage of humanity will not be enough to make it so.’

      Well put.

    The mother who’s son was attacked so viciously needs to sue the school for negligence. SOMEONE should have called 911, as well. No one bothered. Maybe through a lawsuit, these schools will finally wake up that they have to have guts or get the heck out of the school business. Kids have been entrusted to their care.
