9 Teenagers In Goyang Allegedly Murder 18 Year Old Girl

This is a horrible crime that hopefully the murderers receive appropriate punishment for:

 Nine teenagers have been detained on suspicion of beating a teenage girl to death and burying her body in a park, police said Wednesday.

The nine, including six high school students, are accused of brutally beating to death the 18-year-old with blunt weapons in an apartment in Goyang, north of Seoul, on April 5, for supposedly badmouthing them to others and refusing to heed their instructions, the Ilsan Police Station said.

The teenagers are also suspected of burying the victim’s body in a neighborhood park the following morning, the police said.

“We were going to punish (the victim) for speaking ill of us and not listening (to our words),” one of the suspects, identified only as Koo, 17, was quoted as saying during the investigation.

The police plan to request arrest warrants for five of the suspects.  [Yonhap via the Marmot's Hole]

    School bullying is not something Korean kids had to learn from abroad. They were able to pick that up domestically.

    “We were going to punish (the victim) for speaking ill of us and not listening (to our words)” Sound very neo-Confucian.

    Strong odds that whatever sentence they get, it will be less than half what the Chinese fisherman in the more recent article got.

    Bullying is nothing new to Korean schools. A lot of it came from the teachers as they had all kinds of leeway in correcting students with that wood stick they could swing like a pro. Students were REAL mean to each other in the 70s 80s, but typical of that generation, the majority of people were ina real bad situation and life experiences made them really tough people. It is hard to smoke a rock. There was all kind of bullying, but many of the ones getting bullied were fit enough to fight back in some way. There were all kinds of epic fights back then. These days, it isn’t anything close to a fair fight. Nowadays, you have a lot of “soft” targets for the bully crowd and that, combined with the teachers lack of power to correct anything that students fear (like some whacks of that fearsome stick)have some schools with the kids running riot on the place. Soem of the males students like to harrass the new young, pretty female teachers pestering them about questions of when they “lost” it and how good it was. These teachers could report the incident to the school authorities, but still have ot go right back into the classroom to try to “teach” the harrassors. The city busses here as a public service play a vid on the monitors in the bus about some scenario where a student is bullying another and two attractive female police officers morph in an give a lecture why this is bad and put up twitter info. Yeah, public awareness is up, but the overall ability of hte schools to deal with the kiddos going bad is poor and hte parenting is becomming more and more like USA, more single parents and more both parents working long to provide for family.
