    What in hell is wrong with a teacher, who would merely order a group of kids to take down a vid of them stripping this boy and throwing him in a dumpster without working toward disciplining those same kids. Then this idiot teacher apparently made no effort to talk to the victim to see how he was handling being treated that way.

    I would be organizing petition drives to have that teacher fired and be approaching the school board about an investigation as to what other teachers were involved in letting this shit go. There's no excuse whatever for this happening with no results for the bullies, and the teachers sloughing it off as if those kids did nothing out of the ordinary.

    How could a child tell another that no one cares if he lived or died????

    That teacher or staff person should be brought up on charges.

    They have "comprehensive" anti-bullying legislation pending in Texas. How much do you want to bet there are more than a few politicians (I'll let you guess from which party) who argue that any language in the bill stressing GLBT victims be removed because it provides "special" rights.

    What an incredibly sad story. There certainly needs to be a criminal prosecution against those responsible for this tragedy.

    Absolutely pathetic.

    I hope all involved faculty are dismissed immediately and blacklisted from ever working in a school environment again.

    Stories like this actually make me cry. I'm sure there are a bunch of people on here that can relate to that feeling, even we didn't endure the same degree of bullying. Terrible.
