Lowcountry schools, police working together to prevent, respond to ‘very serious issue’ of bullying

Posted by Kendall Harmon

The teenager was walking down the Wando High School hallway when someone grabbed his booksack strap and shoved him into the boys’ bathroom.

He tried to get away, but his classmate used both hands to force his head and neck down into a urinal. Desperate to break loose, he swung his leg backward into his aggressor’s crotch and fled the bathroom.

He’s the kind of kid who is picked on a lot, and it’s the kind of incident that schools and police take seriously.

Read it all from the front page of yesterday's local paper.

They will talk to the involved students separately, teach the victim and aggressor ways to avoid the situation going forward, and decide any consequences.

Maybe they’ll make them hold hands and sing kum-by-yah while they’re at it. Eesh.
