Police said Thursday that three 15-year-old boys in Takashimaya City, Shiga Prefecture, have been arrested for bullying after they reportedly forced another student to strip naked and defecate while they filmed him with cell phones on Nov 11.
According to a report on Fuji TV, the boys are also accused of assaulting the victim and throwing him to the ground. It is believed that aside from the three boys who were arrested, several other students had participated in bullying the victim. Police say the school plans to discipline the other students involved.
A spokesperson for the school said that details about the incident are not yet clear, but said they plan to investigate the exact nature of events before introducing measures to ensure this kind of thing does not happen again, Fuji reported.source
I'm glad that the police did something. I hope this starts something in which bullies actually get punished.
