School bullies in South Africa can get jailtime

The whole Bryanston High assault story has no basis in fact. No identities of anyone involved like the bullies, doctors, nurses, or teachers (or anyone else). Two weeks in a hospital ward would be rare. I broke my leg in 27 places during that same period and was out of hospital in 2 days.

What we do know is that the father of Musk was the violent one. That is about the only corroboration.
 
In the old South Africa children were not jailed. We had special schools for them where they finished school. Nonetheless, in very few cases did they send children to these schools and when matriculated they were sent to prisons to complete serving their sentences.

Not sure what went wrong with the new socialist / liberal / communist regime from 1994 that they felt the urge to jail 10 year old kids.

And some wonder why we are starting to take our kids, irrelevant of age out of schools and enter them in online education abroad. Kids will be kids, just don't want a 10 year old to end up in jail for something kids do.

You shouldn't go back to those 27 places.
 
Complete overkill. A good thrashing with a sjambok is what most juvenile boys need, sometimes repeatedly. But then again it does not come with prison contracts, BEE procurement, AA hiring and Transformation, so they won't encourage it, in fact they rather forbid it. Go figure.
In other words you approve of adults assaulting children?

I got bullied. I will admit

Age 13, bully bring gun to school. Threaten me or he would shoot me in the head. (ironic he became a policeman)

Age 15, 7 bullies at SACS. One cuts me with a knife a few times as punishment. You suddenly realise how everyone else looks the other way. I feared going to school. To be honest after that I kept to myself. Didnt go to the matric dance, take part in school activities etc, didnt go to people's parties anything.

My one mate went to SACS and told me you could buy a gun at school in a paper bag.
