Who's responsible for bullying epidemic?

October 17, 2012

We were saddened to read of the callous attack on a Frederick teenager who was waiting to be interviewed about school bullying ("Teenager charged after bullying caught on camera," Oct. 14).

The fact that you published the victim's name, however, further weakens our trust in your news agency. What will happen now?

You suggest the "authorities" (meaning the school system, the police?) believe this to be an isolated incident unrelated to previous incidents of bullying.

But who are these authorities? What are their names? You and those so-called authorities just may be two of the real reasons such behavior is tolerated and perpetuated in our society.
