Most Wednesday afternoons Nathan Pemberton would be sitting in his third grade classroom. But that didn’t happen.
“Got suspended,” he says.
The 9-year-old was kicked out of school Tuesday after he says he stood up to a bully who was beating him up.
“One kid kicked me in the back, then punched me in the face. Then I punched him in the face, and then I got in trouble, he says.”
A picture shows the red marks on his face. His parents says about once a week, he’s been coming home from West Elementary School in Colorado Springs saying he’s been bullied.
They’re glad he finally decided enough is enough.
“Finally, yeah, we told him, if you have to, if there’s nobody else around, you do what you have to do,” his mother, Deborah Pemberton, says.
