At a middle school, a troubled kid kept bullying another boy in particular for being smaller. The bully was fixated in putting him in the trash can. Possibly to fulfill a desire fueled by misplaced revenge. One day, the bully walked up to the boy at lunch, grabbed his arm, and aggressively pulled the small boy up to his feet. The boy, finally pushed over the line, then swung around and began to hit his attacker in the face over and over until there was blood.
The once feared bully curled up into a ball and the small boy walked away. Once the principal caught wind of what happened, he wanted to make an example of and crucify the boy to show how fighting was not tolerated, despite boy's testimony and others saying it was all in self-defense and that he was not the bully. Regardless, someone needed to be put in the chair.
Fortunately for the boy, his mother knew of the bullying and had informed the bully's mom to "correct" her child's behavior multiple times. Nothing was done about it. After time and time again of the boy coming home tormented, the mother said that the boy has the "green light" to defend himself. She then told this to the principal and the bully's mom confirmed everything, admitting she did nothing to fix the problem.
Against the rising news, the principal did not care and wished to have his execution. This made the small boy's mother very, very angry. She strongly suggested to the principal that, in his best interest, he should refrain from his motives, and seek out alternative outlets in properly handling the situation, or he will see what the red light is in action.
Later that day, a final decision was made and the boy was not disciplined by the school, nor the bully. The bully apologized and explained that he was just lonely and lives with a bully. Thereafter, the small boy and bully became friends in the end of the ordeal.
