Nadin Khoury’s Brutal Attack Is How All Bullying Should End: With Arrests, And Celebration

Nadin Khoury — the 13-year-old Pennsylvania boy attacked Jan. 11 on his way home from school by six teens who then threw him in a tree, then hung him upside down from an iron fence, and then uploaded the video of their assault to YouTube — was handed one piece of justice this week when police grabbed his alleged assailants out of Upper Darby High School on Monday and arrested them on kidnapping and assault charges. He endured some 30 minutes of torment by the suspects, age 13-17, and was rescued only when a woman driving by witnessed the assault and chased off his attackers. The family, which was forced to move after the attack, was given another bit of positivity on yesterday’s The View, when Philadelphia Eagles receiver DeSean Jackson, along with guard Todd Herremans and center Jamaal Jackson, embraced their No. 1 fan with an autographed jersey. There is good in this world.

    Todd Herremans? Mr. “why is there so much homosexuality on TV?”

    Google him. It’s people like this scumbag who is the reason bullying culture is so prevalent. And now he’s jumping on the anti-bullying bandwagon that began as a sincere campaign spearheaded by Dan Savage– one of those homosexuals he obviously hates– as a REACTION to gay bullying?

    Too much hypocritical mind-fucking for me to handle.

    I know him. He goes to my school and he is actually a real jerk to most people.
