Bullies Are Brutal

What can be done about bullying? It seems it is only getting worse. Classmates of 16-year old Chase Cristia viscously beat her on the school bus.

And sadly, the mindset for many is “What’s the point in doing something if it’s not captured on video to share with all your friends on social networks?” That’s exactly what the bullies did after they beat up on Cristia. And even more disturbing…hundreds of thousands are “liking” it.

What is wrong with society and specifically, children that are behaving this way? Obviously, social media is an indirect contributing factor, in that kids want to become internet sensations, and one way they’ve found to do so is through violence.
