big booting in schoolsStudents at Marshall Middle School are being told to discontinue playing a “game” called “Big Booting” after a student was injured at school as a result.

Big Booting is a barbaric game in which one student kicks an unsuspecting friend or classmate in the back of the head. There have been at least two serious Big Booting incidents in the past few months.

Police are unsure of the game’s origin, but have seen its consequences first hand. Criminal assault and battery charges have been filed against the student accused of the most recent big booting incident. His victim was left with a noticeable indentation on his head and had to go to the school’s nurse. The kicker was suspended from school.

It’s an injustice when child suffers undue injuries, especially in places that are responsible for ensuring their safety. Hopefully this police effort will curb the growth of this violent game.
