Confronting bullying/scapegoating needs to be a community-wide process. It's not professional or just to blame the victim. This particular boy has a learning disability and doesn't even see it coming. What's wrong with people? My grandfather Andrews used to say that "man is the cruelest animal on the planet...look what he's done to his own kind."
Healing the world starts with each person choosing the better choice; clearly this story points out how one community (and there are others, sadly) needs some guidance and backbone to make a change.
