Scared at School: Students Talk about Bullying
(See Video Below)

 

MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - Caught on tape, bullying has gone main stream, from street corners to the internet. Those scenes can lead to something much worse.

October 16th, 2009: Shots rung out at Carolina Forest High School. Yellow tape marked the room where School Resource Officer Marcus Rhodes shot and killed 16-year-old Trevor Varinecz, a junior at the school (who had Asperger's syndrome).

State investigators say the special needs student, a high-functioning Asperger's teen, went after the officer with a knife and was killed in self defense.

Why did this child snap? Trevor's mother, Karen, thinks she knows.

"We believe he was asking for assistance from bullying, and had carried a knife into school for protection," she wrote to the Asperger's Society website[1] . "Many students came to his funeral services and handed us letters about the bullying that he was enduring. Trevor had never told us about this."

The Varinecz' were in the dark.

Now is the time to ask yourself as a parent: are you in the dark too?
