Bullying Leads to Wrongful Death

Bullying is a big topic these days for kids in school. It’s a real problem and many kids are suffering harsh concequences for just being who they are. Many parents feel schools need to get more involved and help prevent bullying happening in their schools. One family is suffering from a tragedy that occurred due to their son being bullied. The Mother of a 15-year-old boy who was allegedly bullied into committing suicide is suing The Greensburg school system for wrongful death. Indianapolis attorney Tom Blessing says the school system is partly to blame for the death of Billy Lucas because they didn't intervene. The wrongful death lawsuit claims Lucas was a target because of his learning disability, ethnicity and because some classmates thought he was gay.
