Punched in the face, punched and made fun of. This is the 4th time some thing of this nature has been published this school year. What kind of kids are parents in this community raising? Nice.

@AWFBRESIDENT Actually it's not assault. It would be battery but it also depends on the ages of the victim/suspects if they're like middle school age the you can't really do anything about it!

The jsonline crime report for the Northshore contains a few more details on this incident. It involved five 13 -14 year old WFB boys and a 14 year old Milwaukee boy. Over the 21 years I've lived in WFB, I've seen quite a few incidents of groups of children behaving inappropriately and I respond by holding up my cell phone and telling them that I am calling the police if they don't stop what they are doing. I hope others react the same way.
