It doesn't matter if they are in a group, if she beats one of them badly, they would run.
If she fought one of them while the person was alone she would most likely have gotten jump in retaliation. It was a group of people harassing her, most bullies walk in packs which is why people usually won't fight back.

How exactly? They can't protect everybody.
While the students are on campus its the school's job to look after their safety. Why do you think there are so many drills ? The staff should have taken actions to stop this and after taken steps to make it less likely to happen.

Quote:
You honestly think that would stop it? Bullies could care less if they got suspended, they won't stop until that person stands up for themself.
The suspension is a part of the solution not the exact answer for the problem. If after the suspension the harassing continues than things like counseling/expulsion need to be considered and if there are enough reasons applied.

You can't expect the school to handle it, they're not reliable.
Lol, which means that they were in the wrong and have responsibility in the outcome of this too.

Quote:
You can't magically point out the bad from the good until they act. The people that are not bad have to stand up to the "Bad" people if they ever engage in violence.
I was simply pointing out the shitty statement from a student from that school. No, you can't magically point out who is bad. However if you don't take steps to deal with the bads when they reveal themselves then the school is not doing its job.

Quote:
What if the Bully could care less about failing and participating in events? What happens then? They'll just keep bullying them.
I wasn't talking about the bullies, i was referring to the people who end up fighting them only to be punished for simple self defense. Some students, the ones who give a damn which are usually the ones getting picked on don't find it worth it if it will cost them academically.

She does not need to ambush but actually fight against them Herself
Dude, she was a normal kid not a street fighter. Most people won't fight when there are many on 1.
