Jamey Rodemeyer’s Bullies Not Charged!
This is so disturbing. This kid was bullied unmercifully and no one is charged? Wow….
Police closed the Jamey Rodemeyer case today without prosecuting any of his bullies, saying they lacked proof he’d been harassed.
Rodemeyer killed himself in September after facing bullying that he “could never escape,” he said in posts on the Internet. But Amherst, N.Y., police chief John Askey said that despite the 14-year-old’s complaints online about bullying, there wasn’t enough evidence of what happened, and the bullying couldn’t be pinned to any single student.
For example, police toldTheBuffalo News that they had investigated five incidents at North High School and found none had been reported to authorities, leaving investigators to rely on secondhand information.
“In most cases, you need a victim and a complaint,” Askey told the News, noting that he isn’t satisfied with the outcome.
