We ignore bullying at great risk

September 04, 2012

Pertaining to the Perry Hall shooting, I have sympathy for both the victim and the shooter.

When are parents going to teach their children not to be bullies? In this day and age when bullied victims bring guns to their schools, it would be a good idea not to be a bully.

I have absolutely no sympathy for the bullies, but the true tragedy is when innocent victims are in the shooter's path.

Every school and every parent should view the documentary "Bully" and then discuss it after.

After all, being a bully could be a matter of life and death. School officials should be held accountable for not dealing with bullied children. I hold them responsible for their negligence.
