What exactly is the purpose in making the video available for viewing? Does the “reporter” understand that he has taken an incident that happens commonly in that age group and helped make the original perpetrator into an internet hero to her friends? Use some common sense here to limit the amount of sensationalism that had already occurred when whoever videoed this posted it.

Typical of school administration not taking seriously threats of aggression. My daughter has been bullied at Fruita 8/9 (and previously at Fruita Middle School) and it seems that the administrations go to great lengths to protect the bullies instead of the victims. I’m glad the police are getting involved; it’s about time.

So where were the teachers and lunch staff who were suppose to monitor the lunchroom?? It should have been stopped immediately…. Not to go on for over 30+ seconds….. I think those teachers or staff should be suspended for not doing their jobs…. Come on Schultz, you’re losing your grip on this school district. If the students get suspended, your staff should also… I have never seen a school district as bad as this one is…..

I didn’t know Fruita had coed bathrooms???? I also don’t know why the bathrooms are not monitored by the school staff… It all falls back on our Superintendent and his staff. They hire these so called qualified people to run these schools and most of them don’t have a clue nor can even interpret what the district handbook reads….

McGee’s response in the next-to-last paragraph is pathetic.  There would be no difference in understanding if the school administrators actually investigated these situations and communicated the results to parents.
