15 Yr. Old Recent Irish Immigrant Asked To School Dance By Football Player; Harassed and Bullied by Sluts, Hangs Self
It is bad enough that, as a child, you are required to attend school and be indoctrinated and formed into a willing accomplice of the System... but to be bullied by pigs and sluts all the while the school administrators and principals and teachers and the rest of the zookeepers look away and ignore what is happening... at peace with the concept of 'breaking a few eggs to make an omelette'.

What did this girl do that deserved the vitriol of the 'popular' girls of the school?
She dared say ''YES'' when the school's popular boy invited her to a dance.

And to think her mom and dad brought the family from County Clare to America so the kids could experience the country. What a fuckin' nightmare.

Globe Staff / January 24, 2010

Phoebe Prince’s lilting Irish accent and wide smile made the 15-year-old freshman stand out at South Hadley High School, where she enrolled last fall after her family relocated from a tiny village in the west of Ireland.

Her principal called her smart and charming. A boy invited the new girl to the school’s winter cotillion, a highlight of the school year. But two days before the Jan. 16 dance, Prince died in an apparent suicide, after incessant bullying by classmates at the 700-student high school.

“In a school with that many kids, there are going to be issues,’’ Sergeant Robert Whelihan, a spokesman for the South Hadley Police Department said yesterday. “We are investigating what effects the bullying might have had on the suicide.’’

The bullying included disagreements over teen romances at school, school officials said. And it continued with taunting text messages and harassing postings on Facebook, the popular social networking site.

“The real problem now is the texting stuff and the cyber-bullying,’’ said South Hadley School Superintendent Gus A. Sayer. “Some kids can be very mean towards one another using that medium.’’

Sayer declined to comment on the exact nature of the bullying, but said much of it was done online or by cellphones.

What kind of a school is this? What kind of people are raising the animals who would do such a thing to a little girl of 15?

The school administrators ought to be fired and yet their union will protect them and assure the world it was not their fault - if only the high school had more money for security, guards, screening, etc., etc., etc.

I wish that parents were legally held responsible for the crimes their children committed up until age 18. We would see parenting take on much more importance than it does now. If nothing else works, maybe fear will force people to actually parent and care about their children.

What is going on with kids? There was always bullying in schools. Is it that with Facebook and other electronic means that teenagers are getting nastier and meaner?

I know from watching a lot of the kids shows some show bullying a lot with the bullied kid not doing anything to report or stop the bullying.

As examples see the latest movie with Jackie Chan "The Spy Next Door" where the boy is bullied; or the movie "Shorts" where the kid is bullied.

Perhaps taking away some of the instant communication from teenagers and pre-teens would limit the bullying to school hours only, instead of a constant barrage of text messages and messages on Facebook (really beginning to hate that site).

OK still thinking about this. Think of the angry posters who type mean, nasty personal attacks on this forum.

Now, for the majority, most of us are adults and can brush off the attacks or maybe get angry and type something back...but, think how you would have handled it as a teenager. It would be extremely hurtful to see nasty personal attacks on social networking sites or to receive nasty text messages.

Too many people feel comfortable attacking others via e-mails or on forums that they would hesitate saying the same thing face to face.

Parenting was hard before, but unless you watch everything your child texts you will never know if they are a cyber bully.

Well I'm 41 with a 6 y/o and a 4 y/o. Yes, being an older parent helps as you don't just give in to tantrums and whining. My kids don't have x-boxs or ps3 or mp3; their TV time is limited and only to documentaries or fluffy Disney stuff. They are encouraged to read, play and build things with their legos or tinkertoys. Too many of the young parents just keep buying for their kids to keep the kids quiet. It's sad.

This happened to my daughter a few weeks ago. A Facebook thread that went on for 150 comments by a group of kids that she has been at high school with for 5 years. They just turned on her due to the breakup between her and her boyfriend. The boyfriend did the breaking - so I'm not sure why they turned on her so badly.

Comments like - I'd rather you were dead - Everyone hates you, you just don't realise it - see you in therapy 'you slag' - etc. etc. These are by 18yr olds !!! They don't seem to be growing up too fast anymore.

Fortunately for my daughter - she had a huge swell of support from the more mature (majority) of her school year and she is leaving this town in three weeks to start her university life.

I thought that there was a law against harrassment.
Bullying is Harrassment.
Regardless whether it is on the phone or in person.
Publishing demeaning things like on the internet is libel.

The kids who did those those should be in jail.

Dont' be so quick to come down on parents.

Good parents can have bad kids. Especially whe they are teen agers and following the leader who is a natural bad ass.

I personally know several families who have good kids and one total misfit/renegade.

And... we are 'mostly' anonymous on this site. A child gets a 'nasty text' as you say and then has to interact with the author in class!

One change that has been masterful for the system and has further allowed children to be bullied is this:

20 years ago you could stand up for yourself. You could actually take it upon yourself to, after finally getting fed up, beat the hell out of the bully. Or maybe you didn't beat the hell out of him, but at least you stood up and gained respect.

Today? You get abused by texts and what-have-you and get to school the next day and see the bastard and get in a fight and... BOOM. You are suspended for a week. Or 2. Then parent (s) are called and they are pissed off at THEIR CHILD for standing up because now they can't each work all day with their kid at home. What's a kid left to do???

It is sad, and after years of working for Verizon, I still can't have anyone intelligently explain to me why a 2nd grader needs a blackberry with the internet and all the bells and whistles.

Do we give toddlers the keys to a 747? We basically did that equivalent with the primitives. It ruined countless millions of lives. They weren't ready.

Giving people things before they are emotionally or psychologically ready is a disaster.

None of these brats needs a phone, needs a computer except for homework. They do not need to text 200 texts a month and Twitter. Yes twitter, like Twits. They aren't adults and shouldn't be given adult privilege.

What's also sad is the idolization of shameless no talent fame whores like the airhead, one note idiot Kardashians. All these shows teach cruelty and cattiness and shallowness, even Disney. This s ridiculous..
