Little story... When I was younger, around elementary school, there was this kid that used to bully me day after day after day. He used break my things, beat me, make fun of me etc. One day he gave me a good old punch to the face that left a large bruise. When i got home, my dad saw my face, asked me what happened then told me to go beat the guy's face in. And so i did. I picked up one of dad golf clubs, went over to the guy and struck him across the face. I broke his jaw so bad he could barely talk for months. Anyways years pass and he stopped bullying me, intact we are not quite good friends. My point is that sometimes you have to put others in their place even if it means seriously hurting them. We should not raise our kids to by pussies, teach them went to fight back and of course when to not.

If the parent of a 3 year old encouraged their child to continue beating up another one, that child would be taken away from the parent. Since this useless excuse for a human being is a failure at parenting (among many other things, I'm sure), where's child protective services? Last time I checked, 13 year olds are still children.

The father is a moron. I am not against defending yourself, but when someone is down they are down. You do NOT stop them or continue to pummel their face when they are defenseless. What happened to old school fighting?? If I knock your moronic butt out I do NOT stomp on your head in order to smash your skull!!!!
