Too many countries are sitting on their collective behinds on this one.. Many will ask where are the parents of the little snots who behave this way?
I would venture that it is the parents in many cases that are in fact "showing the way" and setting the example from what I see on so many sites.
The story of Massachusetts high school student Phoebe Prince's death is waking up lawmakers on Beacon Hill.
The freshman at South Hadley High School died Jan. 14. And two students accused of bullying the15-year-old have been punished.
According to the principal, Prince, who had recently moved to western Massachusetts from Ireland, was harassed through texting and Facebook entries by a clique of girls.
Whether she committed suicide because of all the taunting police are still investigating. About 200 students held a vigil the night after Prince died and several web tribute pages for her popped up Facebook. Most of the messages were positive but others were cruel had to be taken down.
Many legislators are feeling more pressure to do something to stop bullying before another child commits suicide.
For months, lawmakers have been working on an anti-bullying bill some say it should finally head to the House and Senate sometime next week. Meanwhile the school formed a task force to examine the bullying issue.
