Trigger warning: This story contains graphic descriptions of bullying and violence against a minor that readers may find disturbing. 

Bullying is defined as an "unwanted, aggressive behavior among school-aged children that involves a real or perceived power imbalance" by Stop Bullying.gov. "The behavior is repeated, or has the potential to be repeated, over time. Both kids who are bullied and who bully others may have serious, lasting problems," it adds. The intimidating act in no form is acceptable as it leads to severe psychological distress, among other things, in the victim, especially school-going children. Due to their impressionable age, such behavior can have a long-lasting impact on students' personalities. This exact concern was triggered recently when netizens witnessed a poor boy being ruthlessly taunted and slapped around by a group of kids. 



 

The heartbreaking event was carefully staged by a group of inconsiderate kids who planned an ambush to mercilessly shove and strike the unaware victim. They even filmed the whole thing. As the footage begins, one of the bullies can be seen crouching behind a hedge while waiting for the clueless victim to approach. The innocent boy can then be seen riding his bike down the street while carrying a load of goods. As he nears the bullies, one of them jumps from behind the hedge and blocks the poor child from going any further. Startled by their sudden appearance, the boy, unfortunately, loses his balance and falls off his bike after riding over uneven ground. 



 

His bullies were quick to snatch the bike from under him as they begin laughing heartlessly in the background. Meanwhile, the confused and helpless victim can be seen struggling to back on his feet. The revolting video was uploaded on Facebook and Twitter, but the ones on Facebook has been taken down ever since. The bullies showed no remorse what so ever for their behavior and that was even more infuriating. They saw nothing wrong with purposely hurting an innocent child, ridiculing, and beating him.



 

In another clip of the same post, the gang of boys can be seen sitting on their motorbikes, laughing, and mocking the poor child as he attempts to regain his balance. Finally, when the victim manages to stand up he decides to show his attackers that he's had enough. In an attempt to stand up for himself, he tries to bend the number plate of one of the boys' bikes. Sadly, his bully quickly overpowers him by slapping and shoving him back down onto the ground. He then towers over the helpless boy seemingly daring him to get back up. 



 

The video was uploaded on 17 May and was believed to have been shot in Indonesia, reports the World of Buzz. The caption read: The story of a boy selling fried food in Pangkep, Bonto Bonto. Where is your conscience? This video made me cry. Naturally, social media users were left outraged after the video went viral. They expressed how horrified and disgusted they were left feeling after watching the painful footage. One user Anna Nightsky shared: This broke my heart as he reminds me of my youngest brother. Sending love from Malaysia. May Allah put you in his blessings. I hope those kids were punished accordingly.



 

Another Isha expressed how deeply she was hurt after watching the video. Really made me cry...I want to give this young victim a hug... she wrote. With thousands of netizens condemning the despicable acts of the bullies, the video reached a virality that forced authorities to get involved in this matter. Thanks to the video, they were able to track down the perpetrators. "Because the video was viral, that’s why many residents and the victim’s family also came to Mako. So we asked that the perpetrators be taken to the Pangkep Regional Police Station for further processing," said Ma’arang police chief according to local media
