My son, Brendan, was repeatedly kicked in the head by a group of 20 students at school.....Half were recording with their phones and cheering while the other half were all taking turns stomping my son's head into the ground!!

I got a call from the school nurse telling me an "incident" happened on the playground. She said, "Don't let him fall asleep when he gets home! Keep an ice pack on his head. He has multiple bumps on the back of his head!!"

Instantly I knew deep down inside that something was wrong... I asked, "Let me guess, he got jumped??" To which she replied, "Ma'am I have no idea why you would think that. He could've fallen and hit his head or ran into some equipment."

He told me that 2 kids kept throwing balls at my son who was off playing by himself. Then they both took turns running up, hitting him and then running away. My son asked them to stop and when they came closer and hit him again he pinned one of them to the ground to get him to stop! (For once he finally defended himself! And the one time he does all the kids on the playground attacked him!) The school never called an ambulance!!

He does not like violence!! He even quit football because it was too aggressive. He didn't want to hurt others! (The coach even asked us if we could get him to toughen up.)

The school took statements from everyone except my son. They treated him like the aggressor.

I have 3 videos of Friday... watch at your own risk... it is disgusting and upsetting!!

My stepson, who is disabled and on crutches, got to him before a teacher and tried to defend him as you can also see. Also would like to give a special thanks to the boy in red who did the right thing by trying to help!!

My son was brought to Piedmont Emergency Room then transferred by ambulance to Eggleston, Children's Hospital of Atlanta.

He gets home (they should never have sent him on the bus in that condition in the first place... Especially since he's bullied almost daily on the bus) and told me that the kids were hitting him with rubber (he didn't realize it was their SHOES).... it didn't make sense to me until my stepson told me EVERYTHING!!
