Who's at Fault Here?

Take a look at this, and based ONLY on what you see in the video, tell me your thoughts on who's at fault, who is the aggressor, should either of them get a tougher suspension than the other, etc.

I've got my thoughts, but I want to hear what you have to say first.

Based only on what I saw:
- The girl in red threw the first punch and should get tougher suspension
- This did not look like aggressor/defender type fight, so the girl in blue should get suspension as well.

Looked like the girl in red was trying to bait the girl in blue into a fight, and when the girl in blue refused to take the bait, decided to hit first.

And got her ass whipped for her troubles.

Give the girl in red a suspension, and the girl in blue a pat on the back.

Gotta agree with both of the others. The one in blue 'could' have walked away/diffused. If anything, she should get a lot less. All she did was defend herself.

The audio was difficult to hear/understand, but I'm gonna go with Starik and Old NFO. Blue could have walked away, and possibly even blocked/deflecting the first "punch" without escalating. She did escalate, though, and is likely to get in some degree of trouble for it. Red should get a harsher punishment, but in today's public school system (I assume that's the environment they're in) that's pretty guess is that they both get the same number of days off.

Candidly, I was on both sides of this equation more than once in high school.
