In Florida, a 12-year-old girl jumps to her death to escape bullying. In Illinois, it’s a 15-year-old boy who takes his own life after being bullied. And in Nevada, a 12-year-old opens fire on two fellow students, wounding them and killing a teacher who tried to intervene. In the latter case, investigators are considering the possibility that the shooter — who then turned the gun on himself to take his own life — was the victim of bullying. All three of these tragic events occurred in the past week or so.

In July, New Mexico experienced a high-profile case of this type when 17-year-old Carlos Vigil, a Valencia County teen, took his own life after being bullied.

    start holding parents responsible monetarily or w/jail time for their kids misbehaviors & the bullying would stop instantly!
