    The school says they have no record of Sammy Teusch being bullied, but did say they met with Sammy Teusch parents 20 times and the bullying continued.

    Parents should have pulled him out of public school when the bullying started and put him in private or online school.

    I agree completely. To abdicate your responsibility as a parent to what is laughingly referred to as the "public education system" as practiced today is a risky business.
    The content and atmosphere in todays public schools are toxic and in most cases goes completely against the values of the family.
    Somehow they are too busy to make themselves aware of this.

    I can remember when my sons were in elementary school, this is in the late 1980's, I made it a point to visit and audit several of their classes during the year.
    Some of the teachers welcomed my presence, but there were others that were outright hostile to the idea. I was on good terms with the Principal, so they went along with it.

    It sent a huge message to not only the teachers, but to their classmates as well, don't mess around with my kids.

    Kids are so mean. I remember dealing with some of those idiots growing up. They almost always grow up.to be nasty adults. Had some bully bosses over the years who.needed their ##### whooped, they never learned.

    And hence the tragedy here.
    Like it or not, in school, which a breeding ground for what my mother referred to as the "rude and ill-bred", combined with peer group pressures is what makes it so toxic. It is a microcosm of the real world. And as you pointed out, everyone has to deal with this for their entire lives.

    Call it socialization, street smarts, whatever, it is up to the parents first to teach their children such bad people exist in the world, and the skills to deal with it.
    If that fails, then you go to the bullies parents, mano a mano. If that fails, then you put the school on notice they are now in the mix, remind them of their legal responsibilities.

    Some of those bullies seek out occupations where they can indulge their twisted passion. I believe as truckers we have witnessed our fair share of such individuals.

    One of my male classmates in high school was very effeminate and was bullied constantly.
    Personally, I liked the guy and thought he was a nice person.
    Anyway, a few months after graduation he killed himself.

    Sammy "The Bull". Gravano had dyslexia, was bullied, and did poorly in school. Teachers classified him as being "a slow learner".
    He has admitted to 19 murders as a Mafia hitman. He's now a social media star living in Arizona.

    Francis T. "Mickey" Featherstone (born September 2, 1948) is an American former mobster who did several mob killings in NYC.
    He was bullied throughout his life and was bullied while in the Green Berets in Vietnam, allegedly because he was baby-faced. The medics, while drinking, held him down and circumcised him.
    After returning to NYC he became a mob hitman.

    When someone is depressed or being bullied they think it’s because of themselves. It really most likely the people around them causing them the problem. When parents fail to help or stop the bullying, a kid will think nobody can help them or stop it.

    How could his parents not see the problem and find a solution like others said private school or online school.
