Grant was falsly accused of stabbing a student in the arm with a writing utensil.
He is innocent and we need to prove to the school board that Grant is not the violent angry child they are making him out to be.
9 out of 10 students do not even consider themselves to be hazed. This is because many students do not know the true definition of hazing and the variety of different organizations hazing can occur in.
Hazing can affect people in all organizations, from Greek life all the way to band and chorus groups, and can consist of a number of different activities from participating in drinking games to wearing embarrassing clothing.
We hope to clear up any misconceptions about the definition of hazing to help prevent students already in organizations from hazing their new members. Hazing does not provide a sense of accomplishment or increased self-esteem in new members; rather hazing can consist of many emotional and physical risks to individuals and the group as a whole.
You can help put an end to hazing today by signing this petition to help stop hazing on campus. Do you really want hazing to be your group’s tradition? We pledged not to haze, will you? Sign the pledge and print it out as a reminder that you made the promise to stop hazing in your organization.
No extensive preamble is needed as enough is seen on the facebook MKR page.
Australia is OUTRAGED.... why allow this, we are taking a stand.... we are the people who make this show, if we don't like it, we SAY SOMETHING!
Currently there is not even a proposed law requiring schools to get involved. Regardless of the anti-bullying campaigns, people are still being harmed and, in some cases, taking their own lives.
If this law is passed, it might help stop cyber bullying in Illinois for good.
I Angela Holt have been in the crafting industry for 13 years. I have fallen victim for the past 5 months to Adult cyber bullying from grown adult crafters in this industry. Many of you have read my story.
Due to this behavior and vicious antics these people have taken, I have had to close down my store, my blog, my twitter, my live show for 3 years, my ning site and more. The crafting community on a professional level has gotten a bad taste in their mouth and have found it a risk to work with me due to the constant phone calls and harassing emails that were sent to each company and sponsor I was associated with by these women claiming me as a fraud, as scammer, not sending out products and any other fabricated lie they deemed fit to tell.
They have also claimed all my work to be copyrighted and stolen. They have taken every avenue to to destroy me in order to feed their vicious vindictive childish sick behavior.
My rep, my business and my crafting career has all been compromised.

Stop Idol Minded Teenagers & All Minors From Posting Fights, Bullying, Harassement, Etc.
Youth Should Do Learning Activities On Line And Not Go To School The Next Day To Fight.
There has been an increasing number of youths attacking innocent people, leaving an aftermath of destruction within our society. In many cases innocent people are badly injured or killed.
On the 14/04/12 my 19 year old beautiful nephew was struck by a 14 year old youth; on the 15/04/12 my nephew died of head injuries.
It has torn our family apart. The criminal justice system should make an example of offending youths to protect our society.
Bullying is one of the greatest dangers children in Australia face.
AT LEAST ONE IN FOUR CHILDREN ARE BULLIED AT SCHOOL
In our culture, bullying is stigmatized so that Children often feel ashamed to seek help or even tell anyone they are being bullied, for fear of being a burden on families and communities.
As a result the issue goes unrecognized.
Children's voices are not loud enough to demand their own basic rights. Which include:
The right to be free from physical or mental harm, and to receive an education which enables them to reach their potential, and prepares them for life in a free society (from the UN Charter).
BULLYING RUINS LIVES. It has been the cause of countless suicides. Shown in the photo above, Sheniz Erkan is a girl who died as a result of cyber-bullying in January this year.
Bullying ruins mental health.
Children who are bullied are three times more likely to develop depressive symptoms and NINE TIMES MORE LIKELY TO HAVE THOUGHTS OF SUICIDE.
Victims of bullying are more likely to develop psychotic symptoms in early adolescence and young people who bully others are four times more likely to have a criminal record by the age of 30.
Bullying has devastating affects on the welfare of individuals. It inhibits their developing identity and contribution to society.
Please help raise awareness of this issue, and spread the word through facebook, email or any means you can.
This petition is to help stop Cyberbullying. Everyday people are being harassed on line, and due to the strict policy of the law, the bullys are getting away with it.
Many times people are terrified to go to school, or are inflicting harm on themselves and this needs to be stopped.
The only way this can be stopped is to create a law, where the bully will have to face charges if they start or continue to bully.
The suicide of a 13-year old girl Megan Meier who was the victim of an internet hoax greatly raised the awareness of cyber bullying and its consequences in the state of Missouri. Governor Matt Blunt went so far as to create a task force whose sole purpose was to study and create laws regarding cyber bullying.
As a result the Internet Harassment Task Force now stands as a shining example for other states around the country. Missouri has also toughened their laws on the matter, upgrading cyber-harassment from a misdemeanor to a Class D felony.
Physical, Threatening, and Cyber-bullying.
Name-calling and teasing “In many classrooms teasing and name-calling are the most common forms of bullying. Unfortunately, because they don’t leave scratches or bruises and often happen when there are no adults around, they can go unnoticed by parents or teachers.” This comes from the source above, The Canadian Safe School Network. Likewise, people can hurt us physically and that is more noticeable by others and can be stopped. Verbal bullying is harder to identify, but should be looked out for.
Exclusion is another form of bullying. In an elementary school setting it could be as simple as not letting someone play with you at recess. In a high school type setting, exclusion occurs when people do not include others. This is fairly easy to recognize and one of the easier ones to fix.
Physical bullying is one of the easier ones to handle. Some kids in a high school may not know how to handle an uprising problem with knowledge. There solution is kicking and punching. Sometimes kids feel like they need to dominate others through hurting them, which is never okay. Teaching kids the proper way to deal with situations is a good way to stop this kind of bullying.
Threatening is very scary because you never know if they bully will carry out the threat. It makes people feel uncomfortable and alone.
Cyber-bullying is one of the worst kinds. It leaves permanent records of abuse on the internet for everyone to see throughout the world. This is made worse by the fact that most bullies tend to be more mean when they aren’t face to face with the person they are bullying.
These are all types of bullying that you may not have recognized. I hope we can all stray away from these types of abuse.
Unfortunately, recent bullying statistics show that bullying is on the rise among young adults, teens and children. The rise in these bullying statistics is likely due to a fairly recent form of bullying seen in recent years called cyber bullying. This type of bullying has gotten immense media attention over the past few years sighting instances of cyber bullying pushed too far, and in many cases leading to cases of teen suicide or death. Many bullying statistics and studies have found that physical assaults have been replaced with constant cyber assaults in the form of bashing, rumors and other hazing content targeted at a single student or group of students.
•About 42 percent of kids have been bullied while online with one in four being verbally attacked more than once.
•About 35 percent of kids have been threatened online.
•About 58 percent of kids and teens have reported that something mean has been said about them or to them online.
•Other bullying statistics show that about 77 percent of students have admitted to being the victim of one type of bullying or another.
•The American Justice Department bullying statistics show that one out of ever 4 kids will be bullied sometime throughout their adolescence.
•46 percent of males followed by 26 percent of females have admitted to being victims in physical fights as reported in one report of bullying statistics by the Bureau of Justice School.
Other bullying facts:
•As these bullying statistics indicate, bullying is just getting worse in American schools. Many studies have shown that increasing domestic violence at home are leading to an increase in bullying online and at school.
•Researchers note that one way to help begin to lower these bullying statistics is to tell an adult when it is happening.
•According to the i-Safe American survey of students bullying statistics, about 58 percent of kids admit to never telling an adult when they've been the victim of a bullying attack.
•Another way to stay safe from bullies is to inform the school if the attacks are taking place on school property or have something to do with the school.
•Ignore messages sent by cyber bullies.
Based on the bullying statistics we found, it is clear that cyber bullying is on the rise more so than any other type of bullying. Many students report seeing these types of bullying in chat rooms, social networking websites like MySpace.com and Facebook.com.
There has also been websites dedicated to targeting a student or group of students. Many bullying studies revealed that students who are part of a minority group of students based on their gender, race, socioeconomic status as well as sexual preference are reasons other students use to harass and cyber bully one another. Many of these students are forced to deal with at-school bullying and have it follow them home as they see hurtful comments and rumors being said about them throughout the Internet.
While this isn't always a school-related issue, many schools are cutting down on this type of behavior from occurring at school by limiting computer time and prohibiting many of the social websites used to spread the hurtful information.
Because of the wide-spread amount of bullying it is more important than ever for parents and teachers to check in with children about bullying. Many students might be afraid to tell an adult or parent, which is why parents and teachers need to be aware of the signs of bullying and to pay attention to what is going on with their child or student. Another one of the best ways to handle bullying to help lower these numbers reported in bullying statistics is open communication.
Students and children should be encouraged to tell a trusted adult, parent or teacher about any kind of bullying attack. It is the best way to help stop the situation from getting worse and to help prevent bullying from targeting more and more victims.
11. Brendon's Law
Brendon was a 13 year old boy with his whole life ahead of him. Sadly that life was cut short on 4th April 2011 when Brendon could no longer cope with being bullied and he took his own life.
Brendon was failed by many people in a position of authority. Currently there is no law in the UK against bullying. There should be then maybe we wont see as many children committing bullycide.
There is an increasing need for a Zero Tolerance for Bullying Policy to be put in place and enforced in Santa Rosa County. Too many children are being bullied, and child suicide rate is climbing due to uncontrolled bulling.
The question of the need for this policy is answered by every bruise, every tear shed, and every word a bullied child must endure! As the Tax Payers, Professionals, Residents of Santa Rosa County; and as the Parents, Brothers, Sisters, Aunts, Uncles, Cousins, and Guardians of Children in the Santa Rosa County School District it is our duty and desire to see this change happen!
Disability is now supported in the workplace yet many young people are being picked on at school. This is because many young people do not understand these conditions. Autism and ADHD are now VERY common yet our children have no idea about them and nor do many adults. Please sign and support if you believe it should be part of the National Curriculum for children to learn about Special Needs and Disabilities in school.
I have a son who has ADHD and Aspergers Syndrome and know how hard it is for many children with special needs in Senior School in the United Kingdom because there is little or no understanding.
Bring Back Bullseye!
Please sign our online petition if you would like to see 'Bullseye' back on terrestrial UK television in a prime time slot!
First aired in 1981 'Bullseye' at it's peak attracted 19.8 Million viewers in it's weekly Sunday slot on ITV.
'Bullseye' is considered by thousands to be a much loved national treasure and part of the British psyche.
'Bullseye' is the total family entertainment show, and previous hosts have included; Jim Bowen, Dave Spikey, Ant & Dec, Vernon Kay, and of course Tony 'Mr 180' Green.
This petition is to show Television Executives, Sponsors and Media Moguls that Bullseye is still a much loved television show and one that the British Public would like to see back on UK prime time television.
I am trying to get a bill submitted to the Alabama Legislation to assist kids in trouble. The legislation would require the state or a state organization or a non-profit origination to set up a hotline for children in the state of Alabama to call if the are being bullied or even if they are involved in any other kind of teen related violence, for example if your being abused by a boyfriend/girlfriend. And then every school would have to post the state's school violence hotline so that students would have quick access to services.
I am following in the foot steps of Gov. Paterson of New York State. Who I believe had a great idea for trying to help keep our children safe. "Students have a right to an education, and in order for them to get the education they are entitled to, they need to be able to go to school without fear of being bullied and harassed by other students"-Donna Lieberman, executive director of NY Civil Liberties Union.
Gov. Paterson's was just anti-bullying but, I believe we need to include dating violence.
We have a responsibility here in Alabama to provide the highest level of protection and care to our children also and this legislation would help do just that.
So, I hope that each and everyone out there will please take a moment to sign our petition. This is just one small step on a much larger issue but, hopefully it is a step in the right direction.
If anyone has any suggestions I am always open to outside opinions and all the help I can get is greatly appreciated.
Thanks everyone for your support. Now, it's in God's hands.
I am writing to you to ask for your support of national legislation that will empower schools and educators in their efforts to protect students from bullying and harassment both in school, and through the use of technology.
Once considered something of a rite of passage or just kids being kids, bullying is now defined by experts in the fields of mental health and criminology for what it is - an act of abuse and terrorism on our most vulnerable citizens. FBI investigations have determined that bullying has been a contributing factor in over 70 percent of all school shootings, and research has linked bullying to a host of educational concerns including everything from academic failure to depression, substance abuse, delinquency, gang proliferation, self-harm and suicide.
Bullying is often a red flag of more serious psychological problems that escalate over time. Research has determined that one-in-four students identified as pattern bullies by third grade are convicted of a violent crime before the age of twenty-six, and 98 percent of these will go on to abuse their spouse, children, and co-workers.
The good news is that there is a great deal that can be done to change this. Several states have recently passed laws to address bullying both in school, and through the use of technology. Unfortunately, the training and implementation varies greatly from state to state and district to district. Florida has recently passed The Jeffrey Johnston Stand Up for All Students Act. From the beginning, this bill was recognized as the best and most comprehensive in the nation. Jeff's Bill has the "teeth" it takes to not only empower schools to protect our children, but to get help for the thousands of children that slip through the cracks of the education system only to end up in our criminal justice system as violent offenders. Before we demand that our children meet our high standards of academic achievement, we must first ensure the most basic duty of every adult member of society. We must guarantee our children the opportunity to learn in an environment that does not threaten their physical and emotional well-being.
I ask you to please give your full support to this legislation, and help make America's schools a safe and nurturing place to learn for ALL children.
Adopt and Fully Implement an Anti-Bullying Policy in Chilton County School District and Strictly Enforce the Code of Conduct.
The administration of The Chilton County School District has repeatedly demonstrated a non-compliance with its established Code of Conduct. As the acts of violence and bullying become more prevalent in our school and in order to assure the safety of students, staff, and faculty, we feel it is necessary to adopt and implement a school-wide anti-bullying policy.
Many cases of bullying have gone unrecorded by those who have become victims of bullies and as a result my children, many other children, and future children will continue to suffer.
The QMJHL is going to wreck this young player’s career by calling penalties on him when they are not really penalties. The league doesn’t want to penalize the refs for calling bad calls on him and the rest of the team.
Sometimes there is penalties that are called that are justified but they have players so confused and scared that this will ultimately hinder all the players’ careers. These young players are trying to be professionals and when they try to do what is expected of them they are being shut down by the refs based on the crowds’ reactions.
The seadogs top team in the QMJHL ranked first and second in Canada all year long have fallen victim to ref bullying.
Many kids today have to deal with being bullied. We can stop this with one signature!!
Bullying is a form of abuse. It comprises repeated acts over time that involves a real or perceived imbalance of power with the more powerful individual or group abusing those who are less powerful. The power imbalance may be social power and/or physical power. The victim of bullying is sometimes referred to as a target.
Bullying consists of three basic types of abuse - emotional, verbal and physical. It typically involves subtle methods of coercion such as psychological manipulation. Bullying can be defined in many different ways. Although the UK currently has no legal definition of bullying, some US states have laws against it.
The Internet and social networking Web sites are being abused and used to form hate groups. People like the creator of this petition are being stalked, harassed, and cyber bullied and the hate grows due to the ease of access of the Internet and the ability to make claims about someone and threaten them by the use of false identities.
Join us in our mission to put an end to the abuse of the Internet and in asking Web sites to put more safeguards in place to control this growing epidemic. Your information will not be made public and will only be shared with the Web sites that are targeted in the petition.
