Many victims are terrified to report bullying, because they fear getting the bullies in trouble and then having the bullies retaliate. So, in lieu of death threats and harsh physical punishment, both which have been suggested in thousands of online comments, what do we do?
In the short number of days since the Karen Klein story broke, several of the 13-year-old boys involved have received death threats. Why is it so much easier to see these kids as inhumane monsters than it is to see them as children who are in need of serious help?
I can't shake the feeling that Karen Klein should take $15,506 and give it back to the people of Greece, New York, who paid her to monitor children on a school bus. Someone should have been monitoring the kids on that bus. And clearly it wasn't Karen Klein.
