Avideo showing a disturbing physical altercation between two students at a Beaufort County, South Carolina middle school is under investigation, and charges are pending against one of the students, according to law enforcement.
The Beaufort County School District and Beaufort Police Department began looking into the horrifying incident at Lady’s Island Middle School on Thursday.
As depicted in the video, the larger student initiates the bullying by pushing the smaller student. When the smaller student attempts to leave, the larger student sends her back to the ground with a clothesline move to the face, with the smaller student yelling “Don’t! Don’t!”
The larger student tells the girl on the ground “I will hurt you!” and proceeds to kick her, saying “Don’t do it again!”
In a calm voice, the student on the ground asks “can I get up now, please?”
“I’ll stomp your bitch ass face in,” the larger student responds, to which the smaller student (still on the ground) replies, “OK. I’ll stop. Just please let me …”
The larger student cuts her off and says “You can go. BYE!”
Within two hours of the video being made public on Facebook, it had drawn more than 6,000 views and hundreds of comments.
