Snitching in today's thug street culture is the worst thing you can do. Even if you are the victim, you better not tell.
The priorities and morality in their lives is backward and animalistic.
We have areas in El Paso but considering the demographics of Columbus, I am sure I could guess the racial makeup of that school.
If the situation was reversed ethnically, this would have made national headline news and you would have Sharpton, Jackson and the NAACP calling for an investigation and wanting school officials fired.

not much about it on the news here, one of the liberals rules is minorities can't be bullies, they always gotta be the victims.
This news doesn't fit so they bury it or don't report it.

Bullying is ugly and can mold a persons outlook on others for life.
