A 12-year-old girl slashed across the face by another pupil says she wants to return to the school where it happened.
Shanni Naylor needed 30 stitches in her face after the assault during an English lesson at Myrtle Springs School in Sheffield on Wednesday afternoon.
It is believed she had intervened to stop her assailant bullying another pupil the day before.
A 12-year-old girl was arrested in connection with the attack and released on police bail until December.
It is thought the attacker used a blade from a pencil sharpener to slash her victim.
Her attacker was another 12 year old girl, who jumped up and slashed her in the class! What the hell is going on in this country?
More pertinently, what is going to happen to her assailant?
A spokesman for headteacher Ed Wydenbach said: "I can confirm there was an incident in school which was dealt with accordingly. A knife was not involved."
Wow, that sounds really harsh, eh? What do you think the chances are that she will get absolutely stuff all punishment? I mean, if the judge is in a really bad mood, the little scrote may get a couple of hours community service.
In my opinion, this is what should happen.
- She should be publicly beaten and otherwise humiliated,
- She should be made to pay for her victim's medical treatment.
- Since she cannot work for 4 years, those expenses will be put on account and will accumulate interest over those four years. Either that, or her parents will have to pay, and they can take it out of her damn pocket money.
This kind of thing is utterly unacceptable and should not, under any circumstances, go unpunished.
