Agreed.Usually a bullied person becomes a bully himself.
It is like repeating the same pattern.
That is why therapy is needed - to break free from it.
Esp. regarding the need for therapy in schools.
We need programs and more mental health assistance for students.
No one should have been bullying him for being poor, and I'm curious if he ever went to school admin. to report it and get help ?
It's so sad who this SR chose as his victims, though -- innocent kids who obviously were not his bullies and his own grandma whom he wounded but possibly meant to kill as well ?
A family member who took him in.
When did he start exhibiting cruel behavior ?
Did it start before the friend's video with the animal abuse ?
It takes a very evil person to target animals and young children.
I doubt any of his victims hurt him and if he was blaming past bullying it makes no sense to attack innocent people who weren't responsible.
Not that it's okay to wreak havoc and revenge on another because of past actions, regardless of how wrong.
Reporting it to the teachers or school authorities is best.
He had no excuse to do what he did.
