On March 28 at 7am parents will be walk a picket line for zero tolerance for bullying in their schools. They will be picketing at the Livingston County High School. After a 15 year old girl committed suicide, parents are fed up with the lack of committment of the local schools to stop the bullying. Many have come forward on Facebook telling their story of how they were tormented by others. Have you been bullied? Let us hear your story. Let's speak up for the children.

Hope Tommy gets all the publicity he wants, he's the biggest bully of them all and his son bully's kids at LCMs.... This is a shame how he doesn't even have enough respect for this girls parents to let them put her in the ground before he runs his mouth just to promote himself and his ego... Ask anyone that knows Tommy from hs, all he did was bully and his lil boy is a smart ass kid that bully's and has zero respect

ha lol any one that was in school noes I wasn't a Billie I was bullied but I took up for my self wen it happened and as soon as it happened getting in fights for for taking up for my self is not bulling , it's people like you that has the school system like it is today , attention to me really why ?? That makes no sense , but I will tell you this I will make a stand for what is right for our kids in this co no matter what people like you think or say , with over 1000 parents now standing behind my in this one ore two little Internet cowboys don't and will not scare me away , as far as the girl that took her life I believe 100% if the zero tolerance policy was inforced she would be here today but on the other hand it's not just for her this stand is for the ones who can be helped now , and after the 1000 parents have took a stand with me I'll not back down , but I'd love to no who you are so I could sit you down and talk to you about anti bulling ,and show you the policy they have in place ... As far as my boy he's Ben bullied for the last 3 years but that's not your concern and leave kids off this site ...

Tommy, zero tolerance isn't the answer.... Being anti bully is great, but were do you draw the line? Do you kick a kid out for making fun of someone's shoes? Or what? Zero tolerance is a big deal, and all the parents backing you need to realize that because they will be the first to cry when there kid gets kicked out of school, and yes you son bullies don't think he doesn't......

I can't get over how these ignorant parents are trying to get publicity. They are taking a family's sad and tragic event and turning it into a 3 ring circus. Let the family mourn. Zero Tolerance would not have saved the girl. Unfortunately, bullying is going to take place no matter where you are. It will happen in school no matter what the policies are. It will happen outside of school where you cannot have policies to regulate anything. Hatred breeds hatred. The parents that are trying to get everybody involved in this are "bullying" others online. I wonder where the children in this district are learning to bully? I've looked at the Facebook page and at the profile of Tommy. It is obvious that ignorance is behind this entire thing.

Go back to the main forum and look at Tommy's "ironman" forum. I think this should be sent to every parent that has joined his group. It speaks for itself...

I don't understand what the parents are proposing? There already is a 24 hour bully/suicide prevention hotline 1-800-273-TALK. I was bullied throughout middle school, sometimes it became physical but that isn't what hurts. When someone gets inside your head and mentally breaks you down there is only so much one can take. The key is to TALK! to someone, anyone. It is impossible to prevent all bullying but is possible to give children the tools to deal and cope with these situations and to let them know it is ok to talk, some are afraid too. When I look back and see the kids who bullied me, they amounted to nothing. In a way i'm glad I was bullied it has made me the person I'am today.

not only is this moron milking this poor child's death, now he is going to go desecrate the site of two crosses where our school lost two other children in front of the high school with this unlawful gathering. What a freaking moron. Obviously, his mother and father must have been siblings!!

Tommy has figured out the answer to bullying!!!! Let's all go get arrested in front of the school next week in front of our kids!!!! Look mom - I want to be like Tommy! Barely got out of high school - no join the military - never has had a job - runs a state of the art fight league in a town of 400 people - now a self-proclaimed leader!!! What a role model. Hitler is at the Synagogue tomorrow in Paducah - already have an opinion of Hitler but what about the people who go to the Synagogue?!

I beg to differ on analogy - Hitler had a functioning IQ and his parents were not siblings.

I'm 95% of the people that know you - dipshit. Other than being a sperm donor - the only positive thing you ever did for your daughters was to be broke so they could qualify for financial aid in college - what a freaking moron. File your tax returns on Facebook. At least you are going to help pay for the new judicial bldg next week.

Using this sort of profane, grammatically incorrect, and nearly illiterate language, you are definitely the person I want to represent my children. . . Surprised you are even able to function in society. I mean, really surprised.

After careful viewing of all references made to Mr. Shull and reading his comments, I have come to the conclusion that he is not the best choice for leadership of the Anti-bullying campaign. Positive attitudes without accusations and someone that the majority of the County respects is what is needed to lead this demonstration.
