Boy suspended fighting back bully - Boy suspended for fighting back bully, The parents of a 9-year-old Colorado Springs boy say he was suspended from school after standing up to a bully. The boy claims another student, whom he says has bullied him for months, attacked him, and he fought back. His school says it has a zero-tolerance policy for fighting and suspended both boys.

A NINE-YEAR-OLD Colorado boy claims he was suspended from his elementary school after fighting back against a bully who was beating him.
Nathan Pemberton, a third-grader at West Elementary School in Colorado Springs, was suspended Tuesday following a physical altercation with another student, KDVR-TV reported.
"One kid kicked me in the back, then punched me in the face. Then I punched him in the face and then I got in trouble," the boy told the station.

The boy's parents said their son has repeatedly complained of being bullied at school.

"Finally, yeah, we told him, if you have to, if there's nobody else around, you do what you have to do," said his mother, Deborah Pemberton.

A school released a statement to the station saying that the district has a "no tolerance student discipline policy."
"If a student is involved in a physical altercation on school property, they are automatically suspended," the statement said. "District 11 schools employ many anti-bullying teaching techniques ... and none of these methods include violence or retaliation."
