When a Pennsylvania sophomore with learning disabilities could not get help from his teachers, he decided to take matters into his own hands. The boy, who was not named, had been regularly tripped, shoved, nearly burned with a cigarette lighter, and generally tormented since moving to the South Fayette School District, just 20 minutes outside Pittsburgh, PA.
According to sources,
The boy had been diagnosed with comprehension-delay disorder, anxiety disorder and ADHD. According to his testimony, he recorded the audio to show his mom that he “wasn’t lying” about the continuous abuse.
“I was really having things like books slammed upside my head,” he said. “I wanted it to stop. I just felt like nothing was being done.”
Angered by what she saw, she took the audio recording to the school principal, Scott Milburn. What Mr. Milburn did next is nothing short of shocking.
Despite the abuse that the boy had to endure, he was eventually found guilty of disorderly conduct by District Judge Maureen McGraw-Desmet. This marks the first time that a bullying victim recorded abuse, and was later charged with a crime.
They plan to appeal the ruling on April 29. The bullies were never punished.
