14 Year Old Boy Blinded In Gay Bashing At Brooklyn Middle School

14 year old Kardin Ulysse has been left blind in one eye after a brutal “gay bashing” by bullies which took place in the cafeteria of a Brooklyn middle school.

Kardin  has undergone two surgeries on his right eye since the June 5 beatdown at Roy H. Mann Junior High School in Bergen Beach. It is unclear whether the bullies’ multiple punches or the broken shards of lens from his eyeglasses caused the damage to his cornea. “The doctor says he needs a transplant,” Pierre Ulysse said. “For me to send him to school with two eyes and come back with one eye is really absurd. “I want the world to know about this,” he added. Kardin, an eighth-grader, was set upon by a pair of seventh-graders who were calling him a “fucking faggot” a “pussy,” a “transvestite” and “gay,” according to a Department of Education occurrence report. While one schoolmate pinned the victim’s arms, the other rained punches on Kardin’s face, head and neck. Kardin broke away and the fight continued in the cafeteria until school safety officers and school aides finally intervened.

This is not the first time that Kardin was a victim of bullying at the school.

Last year the  Roy H. Mann dean was contacted and told that Kardin had been a victim of bullying at the school for some  time. Last October, another thug attacked him and tried to steal his school  lunch money. But nothing came of it.

Just last year the parents of another 13-year-old student filed a lawsuit against Roy H.  Mann school alleging a pattern of bullying.

Kardin’s parents’ lawyer is calling on police to investigate the assault as a hate crime.  Both the boys involved were only charged with misdemeanors in Family Court.

Kardin’s parents intend to sue the school.
