I've been watching the comments on this incident and holding back on saying this, but here I am:
I happen to know a student who attends the same school as the girls who were beaten up. The student
told me that these girls were deliberately targeted because they've been harassing and bullying several
students at their school for awhile now. I was told they made nasty comments, physically pushed and tried
to start fights with several students at the school. These other students complained about these girls and
nothing was done. So it seems like a few decided to take matters into their own hands.
I am not condoning what they did. But I think it shows a lack of willingness of school officials to take student's
complaints about other students seriously. And parents should have been involved on both sides.
I'm not naming the school or the student who confided this information. But this could be any school, anywhere.
