Well, this is disgusting.
A viral video making the rounds on Twitter captures a horrifying act of violence against a young Syrian refugee, Jamal, who already has a broken arm, perpetrated by a fellow student half again his size.
The Guardian has written about it.
“West Yorkshire police are investigating a report of a “racially aggravated assault” against a 15-year-old boy after a violent video was shared on social media.
The victim, with his arm in a cast, is seen to be dragged to the floor by his neck before his attacker says “I’ll drown you” while forcing water from a bottle into his mouth.
The incident is said to have taken place on playing fields at Almondbury Community School in Huddersfield on 25 October.
Barry Sheerman, MP for the town, said he had been supporting the boy and his family, tweeting a video of the incident, which he called “absolutely shocking”.
“Understand from council that the school have taken strong action. Will be following up to ensure all available support is being given!”
Huddersfield is between Manchester and Leeds in North Central, England.
