States Seek Laws to Curb Online Bullying

planetmn Re:This shit is out of control (251 comments)

right on national television, the student stated that several members of the football team had been threatening to beat up the gun carrying student, and that the gun a carrying student had said he would shoot anyone that tried.

So what do we have here? We have a student's recounting of events (which may or may not be true - it was an interview, not sworn testimony) and absolutely no reference what-so-ever to administrators protecting the bully. In fact, you don't know that no punishment was given to the football team, and you also don't know that the story the kid gave on tv was actually verified in any way. Just because a student says the football team is bullying them, doesn't mean that the football team gets automatically expelled.

My problem with your post is that you imply that school administrators are protecting the bullies. You have not provided anything to substantiate this claim.
