I originally posted the following information and commentary onto my Facebook wall…
Florin High Teen Suspended for Fighting Back Against Bullies, Mom Says:
(Liz Kreutz) Cameron, who has physical and mental disabilities, including a paralyzed left arm, said he was attacked by classmates, Friday afternoon near Florin High in Sacramento, that caused him to get a concussion. McDonald said the Elk Grove Unified School District showed her a video of the incident, which, according to her, showed Cameron fighting back in self-defense.
The school district said the school has a zero-tolerance policy for violence and that if a student is attacked, he or she should just walk away and tell someone.
