    Whether it was about a boy or just plain meaness, it is still wrong and the girl doing the beating needs to be punished. The girl that was beaten, no matter what she did, DID NOT deserve this. Please pray for these girls!!! There is no winner here. I have worked in alternative schools, public schools and witnessed bullies and their victims. Their thinking is that they should be allowed to do whatever they want and to whomever they want. I was a victim in school and the reason I was picked on was just because...no real reason to it.

    Probably over a boy. Some girls can't understand that boys are looking to have a good time, they gone talk to all the girls.When they get all their education and get a job, start making money, then they going to start looking for a more permanent relationship.

        The problem is....juvenile petitions are NOT a big deal to children. The girls who committed these acts knew what they were doing. When children make decisions to intentionally harm another, they should face adult charges and penalties. Until we take serious action against crimes of this nature, children will continue to act irresponsibly.

        I prayed. But still they never did a follow up as to why she was beaten. She may have made a racist crack that didn't go over well with the one she said it to. Who knows ?

      You really don't understand the point to this article do you? Who cares what it was about, it was wrong, wrong, wrong, WRONG. This girl could have died, she may already be dead. I pray for her parents and her well being.
