Ateneo bullying incident

This is a viral video of a Tae Kwon Do black belt kid (short guy) who was filmed bullying and beating up another kid inside the boys’ toilet of the Ateneo De Manila Junior High School. The bully kid has featured in several videos beating up and humiliating other kids. Here, he is telling the other school mates that he gave the other kid the choice to kneel down kiss his shoes and his private parts. But the other kid refuse to do it so he beat him up using TaeKwonDo technique.

Studies show that people who are abused by their peers are at risk for mental health problems, such as low self-esteem, stress, depression, or anxiety. They may also think about suicide more. Bullies are at risk for problems, too. Bullying is violence, and it often leads to more violent behavior as the bully grows up.

Two senators on Thursday wrote on Twitter against bullying after they saw the viral video.

In a series of tweets, Sen. Sonny Angara reminded schools to strictly enforce the Anti-Bullying Act of 2013.

“Just a reminder to schools to strictly enforce their AntiBullying policies required under the AntiBullying Law. Disturbing videos going viral now. #NoToBullying,” he said.

“Our schools should not forget that under the Family Code they are legally responsible for kids under their custody #NoToBullying.”

Sen. JV Ejercito, meanwhile, said: “No to bullying. Parents shouldn’t tolerate their kids who bully other kids.”

Some of the provisions of the Anti Bullying Law, RA 10627 which was ratified during the Third Regular Session of the Fifteenth Congress.
