Parents of kids who have bullied Levi Null say, “he brings it on himself,” even though the bullying has included punching, teasing and a video the kids made of Levi’s involuntary movements associated with his autism spectrum (ASD) diagnoses which they put online using school computers. According to Levi’s mother, Dawn Simmons, this video evidence includes students hitting and teasing Levi while teachers are shown turning away.
The parents of the bullying teens are defending the actions of their children. Mr. Weatherly, a father of one of the teens states, “I would say three-fourths of this stuff he brings on himself and probably a fourth of it is bullying that shouldn’t be going on.”
