I totally agree. Liberal PC bullying has gotten way out of hand lately:
"Boy, accused of bullying, Kills Himself."
"The Virginia boy, 16, a third-year student at the prestigious and private Groton School, was accused, along with two other boys, of harassing another student about his sexuality, according to his father, Walter Perkins. His father said he was told to come get Hunter immediately."
Calling a kid names is abhorrable, but it's FREE SPEECH. Ruining a kids life to the extent that he kills himself is BULLYING. Know the difference.

Being a bully isn't free speech. It is a shame that this young man took his own life.
The anti-bullying policies of many schools took root in the aftermath of the Colombine school shootings. Some kids will suffer in silence,others may arm themselves and strike back.
I knew of a kid who was picked on in H.S. He was a small guy who played in the school band. He brought a knife to school and cut his harasser. Believe it or not he wasn't expelled.Just suspended for a few weeks. He wasn't picked on anymore.

It was a good school that didn't have metal detectors like Willingboro does.
