An online petition is rapidly filling with signatures Friday to reinstate a Southern California high school student reportedly suspended from school and kicked off the football team because he physically defended a visually impaired student who was being punched in the face. “We believe Cody should be back on his [football] team and back in school where he belongs,” the petition read. “While violence is never the best option, what Cody did to defend his friend and classmate was justified.” The student who intervened then quickly returned to the scene, bent down and queried the dazed aggressor, now bleeding from under his wool cap: “Trying to f***ing jump a blind kid, bro?” Huntington Beach Police announced the arrest of the alleged bully, KCAL reported: “The victim and suspect know each other and have a history of not getting along.A high-school student was arrested for an attack on a visually-impaired classmate which was captured on video, police in California said late Thursday.September 25, 2015: A Californian teenager, purportedly caught on camera punching a blind student, has received swift and savage justice after another student intervened – knocking the bully to the ground with a right hook.

A spokesperson said: “Huntington Beach High School firmly believes that all students are afforded an opportunity to learn in a safe and secure environment. The bully lies bleeding while the attacker, after checking on the well-being of the victim, turns back to him asking: “’You trying to jump a f***ing blind kid, bro? The school issued a statement Thursday saying officials were investigating: “The school is now responding to this isolated incident by interviewing students and witnesses to determine exactly what happened. And I got kinda mad and was ran over there and I was going to go break it up, but then my step-brother Cody like pushed me inside.” “A lot of people are calling him a hero,” she said, “And I would as well.

On Thursday, detectives, school resource officers and school officials conducted a detailed investigation and spoke with the students involved in the incident and witnesses, Marlatt said. At that time, the suspect punched the victim several times and that is when the third student intervened and struck the suspect to prevent any further attack on the victim.” The suspect “has been arrested for misdemeanor battery and released back to his parents.” Police added, “we do not anticipate any arrest being made on the victim or the 3rd intervening student.”

As the visually impaired boy walked past the 16-year-old at school Wednesday, an argument started, and Marlatt said the boy then hit the visually impaired boy several times.
