Boy with Autism Punched by Bullies

This is an emotional video featuring video evidence of an attack by bullies and statements by the individual with autism who was attacked. Should police do more, such as file assault charges in cases like this? Although people with autism are protected by the Americans with Disabilities Act, they won’t file such charges thus far because there was ‘no visible blood’.

The problem with bullying, especially physical assault, is how can individuals actually protect their right to education and have an equal footing when they come to know fear in educational environments?

    The bullies should be transferred from the school. The police
    should prosecute the offenders in the meantime. Until we get serious about bullying, it will continue.
