After Brunswick, Maryland teen Preston Deener was suspended from school for punching a bully that had tackled him, a local news crew went to the school to do an interview with him. What happened next is surreal.
As Deener prepared for the reporter's questions, three boys started bullying him and one hit him in the head. Deener had to run away to escape them - while the cameras rolled the entire time.
So what was the school's response to an obvious assault on school property? While they say "an investigation" is in process so they can identify the teens (Hello? Watch the damn tape!), the school district's communications director, Michael Doerrer, seemed rather nonchalant about the attack telling the news crew, "Bullying is a problem at many schools around the country, not just a problem in Frederick County."
