Valentine’s Day will mark one year since the Parkland High School mass shooting in Florida where 17 people were killed. You’d assume students all around the U.S. knew about the shooting in record time. Social Media spreads news faster than news outlets.

And yet, with all the sadness and fear during that time, 14 days after the Parkland shooting, an 18-year-old high school student posted on social media a warning that he was going to kill two specific staff members on Monday.

BLOG POST #142: This week, I’m sharing research on a specific criminal case involving an elementary school bully.

Young Bully

The victim began being bullied in first grade. The bullying reached a dangerous level when the boy was in fourth grade.
