“There’s a couple of elements to this. There’s the actual act itself and then there are the bystanders that videotape it and take no action and watch it happen,” Desmond said. “That, you know, may not rise to the level of a crime but clearly we and the school are concerned about that and will probably take action on some of those kids as well.”

School Officials Reports:
School officials declined an interview citing student privacy issues, but in a letter to parents, Wilmington Public Schools Superintendent Glenn Brand said and was “appalled” by the altercation and the fact that so many students are seen in the video but do not come to the aid of the victim.
“I assure you that all students who are found culpable will be held fully accountable and appropriate disciplinary and legal action will be taken,” Brand said. “We are in the process of scheduling bystander training that will be mandatory for all students.”

Parents also said they were disturbed by the video and want accountability.
“I felt so sick to my stomach. It just made my stomach turn,” Mandeep Lane said. “That is not acceptable.”
“It’s horrific. It’s just horrific,” said Karen Walsh. “I think we can do better in teaching our kids that standing is just as much of a participant as the people who did the act.”
Desmond said his department will work with the District Attorney’s office. And to determine whether any charges are appropriate as a result of the investigation.
The Wilmington case is one of several recent fights and possible bullying incidents in the area.
Dr. Eugene Beresen, of the Clay Center for Young Healthy Minds at Mass. General Hospital, said the effects of bullying can follow children into adulthood.
“We have to empower the bystanders to be more assertive and to fend off the bullies and help the victims. And we have to have school policies that have zero tolerance for both physical and online bullying. We also have to have conversations with our kids at home. About all of the various forms of bullying and bullied the victim.”

The full statement issued on behalf of Wilmington Public Schools Superintendent Glenn Brand:
“Earlier this week there was a physical altercation that occurred in one of the boys’ bathrooms at the Wilmington High School. As a parent, let alone an educator, I am appalled that some of our students decided to act the way that they did. But what is equally disturbing is the fact that other students were present and did nothing to stop the incident, and in fact, recorded the altercation.
“We are actively investigating the incident and have also notified the Wilmington Police. Who has launched their investigation and has our full cooperation. I assure you that all students who are found culpable will be held fully accountable. Meanwhile, conversations with the high school administration and student class officers are already underway. And we are in the process of scheduling bystander training that will be mandatory for all students. We will also hold a series of community conversations for our students, staff, and parents/guardians. To ensure that we all continue to work toward our shared goal of providing a safe and supportive environment in our schools.”
