Report: Student Who Came To Blind Kids Defense Kicked Off Football Team

Have you seen the video of a high school kid beating on another kid who is apparently blind in one eye? Well, you’ll have a tough time, because it keeps getting deleted at Youtube. There’s a good chance the one I’m embedding will get deleted by lunch

Lovely that so many students stood around and watched, and even took video. Sadly, nothing new in school or society.

The kid who came in to defend the blind student has been hailed by a hero. By the school? Not so much

(Inquisitr) Cody Pine didn’t hesitate to help when he saw a bully beating up a blind student at Huntington Beach High School, and now the internet is stepping up to help Cody in the aftermath of the viral incident.

Pine became famous this week when a short video showed him jumping in to stop a bully who was attacking a blind student in his high school. (snip)

But, apparently those in charge of the Huntington Beach High School saw it differently. After the fight, Cody Pine was reportedly kicked off the football team, the result of “zero tolerance” policies.

Students have stepped in with a petition.

Cody stepped in when he saw his friend and fellow classmate who is visually diabled being physically bullied. (Punched multiple times in face/head) Cody comes and steps in, punches the bully one time to get him away, guides his friend to a safe location and talks to the bully about how he was beating up a blind kid and how it was wrong. There is Youtube video of the main part of the confrontation.

We believe Cody should be back on his football team and back in school where he belongs. While violence is never the best option what Cody did to defend his friend and classmate was justified. And schools “zero-tolerance” policies out even the person saving disabled friends..

Again, where were so many of these kids when the bully was beating on the partially blind kid? The petition is almost up to 9,500 signatures. The New York Daily News featured this statement from the school, right before they started their investigation

“Huntington Beach High School firmly believes that all students are afforded an opportunity to learn in a safe and secure environment. Because of this, safety is the highest priority,” it said in a statement to the News. “Huntington Beach High School has a very strong anti-bullying code of conduct and will not condone this type of behavior from any student.”

Where were the adults? The teachers? Administrators? Security? You rather had the idea that the hero, the guy who came into protect the partially blind, and smaller, student, would get punished. Will he be suspended? Time will tell.

As for the guy punching the partially blind kid?

(KABC) The suspect was arrested for misdemeanor battery and released to his parents. Authorities said no other arrests were going to be made in this case.

Now we wait to see what happens to Cody Pine, and see if he is suspended or punished more by the school.

  2. Schools haven’t actually changed that much since the 80’s and 90’s when I was in school.

    I got in school suspension when a kid decided he was going to pick on me and start punching me.

    My choice was to lay on the ground and die or defend myself. I chose self defense which according to the school was a no no.

    I guess they prefer what we call today, “cower in the corner” and let the bad guy have full control.

    I believe it has been many generational training to teach people you don’t need to defend yourself and you should believe that calling 911 is your only and best option.

    I always get told that I should be greatful that we have police to protect us and that I talk big until I need to call 911 for help. Sorry, I just laugh at that.

    I have been mugged twice, held up at gun point once and jumped twice in my life and not one time did the police magically materialize and rescue me.

    In real life and not government fantasy land, when you are faced with a criminal, you have two options….. Defend yourself or cower in a corner.

    I’m still alive and well today, so I’m sure you know which one I chose, despite my public education. The police were not there and even if called would not have been there in time to help.

    That is the real world folks. This is why I am not thankful I have government in my life. This is why I don’t believe government is a good investment of my time and money.

    In fact I have also been mugged and jumped by police who thought their victimless laws were more important than my life, liberty and property. And I found out that an officer’s opinion is more important than the facts.

    It’s a sad reality of government and I will never support anyone who support such an insane and morally corrupt idea.

    I don’t expect it to change. People are very trusting and naive and will always be duped by criminals who want power and money by using this government idea rather than being like the rest of us and using consent and mutual respect.

    Tell us all john what you have done for schools while under your bridge?

    When seconds count, the police are only minutes away!

  5. Dana says:

    The response of the football team ought to be that they all walk out, and refuse to play. Of course, the testosterone challenged administration would probably like that, ’cause football, well it’s such a violent sport.

    The response of the parents should be to flood the school board with letters, and show up at the next board meeting, and demand both the reinstatement of Mr Pine and the termination of the school administrators.

  6. Conservative Beaner says:

    Maybe the blind person should sue the school for lack of security. Just bring a lawsuit using the Americans with Disabilities Act and watch all those school admin assholes pucker.
