I found this story on AOL news, so sad. What do you all think of the nine people that are being chared? Do you agree with it?

    I was reading through the article that the video is referencing, and it says that two of the students named in the indictments were charged with statutory rape. Other students are facing charges such as assault with a deadly weapon. I almost wish they had gone into more detail in the article so I could fully appreciate these charges, but unfortunately I think they are a bit too extreme. Yes, these kids were extremely wrong in their bullying of such a vulnerable individual, but if the school administration had acted appropriately Prince’s suicide could have potentially been prevented. Interesting story though.

    What a tragedy. She was a beautiful girl. I agree with Rachel’s comment about wanting to be able to read a little more detail about the matter. So I can’t really comment on that. But I do think that there should be some pretty severe punishments for the adminstrators and teachers that saw the incident on the day of her death.
