And the entire thing was caught on film.
A student at Union-Scioto High School in Chillicothe, Ohio was brutally beaten this week by another student for being gay. Class members watched as the bully waited for the student to arrive in the classroom, grabbed him, pushed him to the ground and punched him in the face several times.
Another student recorded the assault on his cell phone. The video was posted to Facebook.
The bully had harassed the gay student (who has not been identified) on Facebook a few days earlier, writing, as the comment on a photo of him: “You fag. Check out the definition of a fag.”
According to an email received by Towleroad from Equality Ohio, “The victim has suffered a possible concussion and dental damage. The attacker was suspended from school for just three days. “
Andy goes on to note that the school district has an anti-harassment policy that excludes LGBT students. Below is the video of the beating from an ABC News story.
