Forgive and forget. Afterall, he's just a kid acting on impulse.
Send him for counselling and then for 40hrs of community service.
Give him school caning and dismiss him from HC - At least he doesn't get a criminal record.
Treat him as an adult and press criminal charges. Let the Courts decide what to do with him.
None of the above - cos it won't make a difference to his attitude.
None of the above - List your action in the Thread
Besides, there were other witnesses on the bus that said the driver did nothing to provoke the boy. And instead, the boy despite being restrained by 2 other passengers, kept on confronting the driver until he was told the police had been notified.
So in my mind, boy kept acting like a jerk until told that police was coming. Then he goes and calls the dad for rescue and starts crying. This is not being a bully (and a coward) meh?
I mean, technically if I calmly take your handphone from you on the bus, and keep quiet when you ask me questions..
Will the other surrounding passengers know what's going on? =) Yet I'd be the jerk. Zhun boh?

the kid is 17, his father is a woos for begging on his knees when instead he should be disciplining his son...what message is he sending, daddy will clean up your mess?
regarding the boy, sorry but if an 18 year old can get 4 strokes with the cane for GRAFFITI, i think this kid should at minimum get something equal in severity or more...this kid PHYSICALLY ASSAULTED another human being, an older human being.
weigh the two, spraying graffiti, hurt no one,
physically assaulting a person, hurting someone and can cause permanent damage
we are only talking a difference of months between the two boys in each case. i think the government and all parties involved better think hard about the message they are sending.
i guess stress from school work causes such action.
as for the bus uncle.. suggest some wired fence at the bus driver seat.
Strap to an 'A' frame. Rear facing up, hands strapped and wait for the command...
i think the father is not doin his part as a father by kneeling and begging... he should get the boy to do it...
this fellow, try to act act infront of the girl and create problem must not be let off easily, he should be punish to warn other punks outside. i wonder why is there no more followup reports
if was the kid, i rather die then letting my father kneel down lor
anyone captured the video at the scene ?
well very simple lor, he tried to act hero in front of his mei mei
when he realised the serverity of the issue, he switched characters and act pitiful & remoresful for a way out lor....
can stand a hero but cannot fall a hero...
he will be a good candidate for the next star search audition.
in USA, such action is viewed ok if u had medical records to prove that u are suffering from a illness caused by stress and it produces such action.
they blamed the illness, not the action.
Perhaps the boy didnt come from a family, whose father doesnt believe in the cane discipline. Families nowadays perhaps dote more on their kids rather then discipline them. In the past when I bullied a kid younger than me, I was disciplined severly by my father. After the biting saw him applying med cream on my body. I told myself never to be a bully cos I do not want to shame my parents.
In recent years, where police get more involve in family violents, parents might not wanting to discipline their children in the 'cane' way as the last generation did, tried a softer approach instead. For the fear of getting involve in 'child abuse'.
Well, this are my thinkings. While every families have their own ways of discipline a child, they will also need to tell them why the parents are disciplining them and what should be expected next time. Discipline them if you need to, reward them if there is a need.
