4 High School Menaces Arrested For Bullying 16-Year-Old Classmate Over Being a Terrorist + Gay

Oh look, another super fun case of bullying. Meet Kristian, a Muslim whose classmates called him a terrorist at his Staten Island middle school. At first the taunts included calling him gay. The abuse only ended when he graduated — but upon arriving as a freshman in high school, he spotted two of his tormentors in his class; he didn’t go back to school. Teachers and other students witnessed the bullying. The 16-year-old at last went to his father and police; his four bullies were arrested on charges of assault and aggravated harassment as hate crimes. [photo: NYDN]
