Caught on cam: Mississippi school beating


TUPELO, MS (WTVA) - A Mississippi mother says complaints about bullying were ignored until her daughter's beating was caught on camera.

Cell phone video shows 13-year-old Destiny Hughes being punched multiple times by a fellow student inside Water Valley High School.

Her mother says the 7th grader was left with bruises.

"It makes you outraged and makes you sick at your stomach to watch the videos. You know, the school has a policy against bullying and violence, but if they're not going to enforce it, it's not worth the paper it's printed on," said Destiny's mother, Rhonda Hughes.
