Justice for Ian
Last year I blogged about 11-year old schoolboy Ian Gibson, who was tragically killed in a vehicular accident, fleeing from bullies. The incident led to concerned citizens drafting an Ian Gibson Policy Against Bullying And Harassment, and a petition being presented to Prime Minister David Thompson by Gibson's father, Victor Cadogan.
Last week, in what I'm sure is the first ruling of its kind, the Courts charged three minors with manslaughter for causing Ian's death.
You can read more here. Sad. I hope this whole sorry episode brings more awareness about the seriousness of bullying in schools.
