A nine year old boy stands up for himself after getting bullied.
And get suspended from school.
He says he'd been bullied for months in fact that he could not take it anymore so when the -- started beating him up again he says he fought back.
Trace Gallagher has more on the punishment that unleashed -- the -- west -- a Trace.
And you can see in the picture to the nine year old Nathan peregrine temperature doesn't really look overly vicious -- -- big for that matter his parents say that.
Once a week you would come home complain that he was picked on or bully or punched.
And that he had some of the physical scars to show what they call the school and they told him at first to turn the other cheek let's.
Just walk away walk away find a teacher.
Well when those things happen -- he did find a teacher.
There's hardly any repercussions.
Finally yeah we tell them if you have to if there's nobody else around you do what you have to do.
So this -- week Nathan says when he began being bullied he decided that enough was enough.
-- -- It was picking me up any kept shaming me into that.
-- he Albert me me I was so I tried to pressure -- you're -- -- again and then kick me back I punched in the face and he'd punch me -- phase.

You know justice should be blind in those schools situations whether they should really be looking into who is the aggressor and who is the defender.
