A senior student C was given a broken nose and recommended 4 weeks of rest after getting severely beat by two junior students. The incident was then sent to the School Violence Prevention Committee for discussion and the junior student who directly engaged in the violent act was expelled while the junior student who agreed on the act was requested to transfer.
However, the two junior students responded with an appeal, claiming that their punishments are unnecessarily too harsh. As a result, adjustments were made. Now, the student who directly harmed student C is only given a 10-day suspension while the other junior student is penalized with 10 days of community service.
The family of student C, as well as netizens, are highly angered by the final decision. The parent of student C stated, "It's unbelievable. His nose has been deeply punctured inside. 10 days of suspension does not make any sense."
Netizens also commented, "Hahaha suspended for 10 days hahahaha The board of education basically rewarded the student for beating up another student. Does that kid (who beat up student C) have a lot of money?", "Crazy bastards", "What are they doing???", "Their parents need to go to jail."
