12-year-old Alleged Bullying victim Dies

[url=http://news.yahoo.com/blogs/lookout/bullying-victim-bailey-dies-153539081.html]Source[/url] [quote]A boy who was the victim of apparent bullying died Sunday at a Philadelphia-area hospital after being taken off life support, his family said. Bailey O'Neill, who turned 12 on Saturday, had been in a medically-induced coma since January, when he was allegedly beaten by two classmates on the playground during recess at his school. The sixth-grader sustained a concussion and broken nose, and suffered subsequent seizures, forcing doctors to induce the coma. "Bailey has been the strongest toughest boy I know," a message posted Sunday to the Building Hope for Bailey Facebook page read. "He has fought this battle long and hard. There just wasn't a way to fix this. I wish I could say he will get better but I can't. Bailey has gone to be with God today." According to NBC's Philadelphia affiliate, the students who allegedly attacked Bailey were suspended from Darby Township School, but criminal charges have yet to be filed. Police investigators are trying to determine whether the seizures were caused by injuries stemming from the Jan. 10 incident. According to the Delaware County Times, police have been reluctant to label the attack a case of "bullying." “I would like to see these kids punished,” Joy Fecanin, Bailey's grandmother, told NBC 10 last month. “Something has to be done. I don’t know what’s taking them so long.” Delaware County District Attorney Jack Whelan said the investigation is ongoing.[/quote] Still say there isn't a problem? Of course, if he only stood up to his attackers #sarcasm

      • Defending yourself against bullies is a fine way to handle it. I was bullied in school and you know what I just punched the bullies in the face or something similar and they ended up leaving me alone. Sure bullying is a problem but if you stand up to them most of the time they will leave you alone.

      • I won't react to this just because I highly doubt we have all the relevant information, and I doubt we ever will have all the relevant information.

      • Also, It was "alleged" bullying. Actually, it was said that Bailey started this fight and he got his ass kicked. I dont see any punishment coming down.

          • Kids should face charges in my opinion. And what is with that little bit at the bottom about defending ones self?
