If I were her mother, I'd be chatting with lawyer about civil suits against the school staff who knew about the abuse, and the school board since the law doesn't want to apply the full measure of justice.
I am sorry you were bullied. That has to be one of the worst things to happen to a student in school.
I am not condoning shooting either but it does remind me of a story from years ago when a student did use a gun and gained national attention. He did not go on a shooting spree but he took care of the bully.
It was the standard bullying story. A male student of small stature and size being picked on by a much larger male in high school. For some reason he was chosen by this HS Football player to be bullied for the amusement of others. The bullied student said the final straw came when he was sitting at his desk and the bully flipped the chair with him in it in front of the whole class. He brought a gun to school the following Monday and pumped the bully full of lead killing him.
When I was in school I was part of an anti-bully team of guys who sought after the bullies of the school, just to prove there is allways someone bigger than you.
And the reason for this was that none of the adults understood what torment a child goes through when they are bullied, adults just brush it off as part of growing up when they don't understand the trauma a child can go through when he or she get's picked on and how a child is incapable of defending themselves when he or she does not poses the skills of moral self-defense.
So the child gets trapped into a box that they cannot get out of, and like in this case death was a way out.
Remember, bullies thrive on satisfation that they are getting the best of you both physically and mentally, so it is an adults responsibility to catch it quick before the flames spread around to all their peers. Once that happens you become scared for life and walk around with a ball and chain, when in auctuality it is a crime of slander, false accusations, emotional distress, harrassment, stalking, and many more, which if an adult did he would go to jail. So let it be with the kids...After all bullying is a game of growing up right? So, let them grow up with the law.
Eaglesmack responded to my post thus:
"I don't think so. I think they are going to be in big trouble. Two of the boys are being charged with statutory rape. I am hoping that they get what they deserve."
I willing to bet that these boys will get away, scott free. After all, this happened in the state that kept the happily departed Ted Kennedy, the self-inflicted wound purple heart winner and gigolo, John Kerry and Barney Franks in office for much, much longer than they ever earned and deserved.
Also willing to bet that the principal and the teachers (sorry, the indoctronaters) probably will get a raise.

Bullying is a major problem and people should take a more serious look at the whole scene in which bullying occurs....
I was bullied in grade 9 because i was a hyper kid, fortuntatley the kid picking on me didnt know i had massive backup, and during lunch i went to the smoking section by myself and beat him up in front of his friends.WHY? because i knew if his friends jumped in they were toast.... Never had a problem after that, he was still a bully but not to me ....
I actually see the kid sometimes, when i go to the beer store and i laugh at him and ask him stupid questions that insult his character.... Mabye in that case ive become the bully now
