I've written about the inaction of school administrators in earlier posts. Unfortunately, given my own experience with 2 different schools, I was not surprised to hear that the school did nothing to help end the suffering of this teen and her family.
What did surprise me, however, was the inaction of law enforcement and the 6 attorneys who not only did nothing, but turned Jessica away in her time of desperate need. Shame on all of them!
The fact is, there are anti-bullying laws on the books. And hello! There are certainly child pornography laws on the books!!! Those responsible for disseminating Jessica's photo can certainly be charged with child pornography and also disseminating porn to minors.
Lastly, schools that fail to take action when informed of "real life" bullying or cyber bullying, are held liable when they do not take action to stop the bullying. I call it Violence. Bullying is an outdated term that, in my opinion, and should be called what it is: Violence. Plain and simple.
