There is NOTHING uglier than young teenage girls with filty mouths who whip up on others verbally or physically like they are bad ass or something, especially over some boy that probably wasn't worth a crap anyway. STUPID IS AS STUPID DOES. It is Mom and Dads JOB to teach teenagers RESPECT AND MANNERS. If their kids don't get it then the parents didn't either, or don't care if their kids are thugs headed for jail anyway. Lock these snot noses up then put them thru years of doing public service to others.

They need to charge and convict these bullies BUT it needs to be handled properly by COMPETENT qualified adults or you are simply creating more casualties. At this age peer pressure & fitting in is all that counts and they do not see long term - good or bad. It needs to be stopped and effective punishment along with "re-programming" must be part of the process but I cannot endorse ruining forever the life of a truly repentent child.

Bullying is not a cycle. So tired of people trying to make excuses for other people's choices by saying it is genetic or cycle. Those girls knew what they were doing. They wanted the girl to feel bad and made her life hell. Hopefully in Juvenile detention they will get the same treatment and learn firsthand what they put that girl through.

I think that more people need to be taught compassion and understanding first, then they need to be taught to treat others with kindness and respect. Parents that are ignorant raise children that are ignorant. Bullying begins at home ! Children of bullies learn how to become bullies themselves unless the pattern is broken by someone who can break that cycle.
