Would we have heard about this if the victim had been a white, blond haired, blue eyed boy who spoke English with a regional accent?
The lad in trouble for the bullying does need to get a bit of slack though - he is only young himself.

I have some experience of these matters. But of course, back then, when I was in school, ALL violence got hushed up as much as possible in order to keep the school from being closed. The rugs in that place sat a good foot off the floor at all times, such was the volume of muck ushered under them by the schools administration.
And it has made the news when incidents similar to this have led white, British kids to suicide or to attempt it, or have led children to become seriously depressed.
Also, I think any event in which a child goes through a playground version of waterboarding, SHOULD be headline news, and it absolutely should be headline news in the event that the child in question is being treated that way because of their origins. The fascist should not be excused because they are young, they should not be permitted to perform these acts absent attention, they should be forced to suffer the negative attention of the nation, and their parents, their friends, their support network should be under scrutiny of such magnitude that they cannot take a crap in private, until or unless they simply cease to hold those Nazi beliefs.
Britons have a duty to those who fought for their futures, to never fail to crush and oppress fascists, wherever they are found.

What makes you so sure the kid was a fascist? Do you know the background on why the attack occurred? For all any of us know it had nothing to do with the other kid being Syrian and could have been for a myriad of other reasons.
I think this has been blown out of all proportion to create the narrative you just fell for.
