Adults who bully children

I've seen teachers bully students, but that is considered okay by most people, particularly people who have power in schools. It's okay for adults in schools to tell children that they are "losers," "future criminals," etc.

Everyone seems to agree that the adult who tormented Megan Meir went too far.

The cruelty and magnitude of the messages led Megan to hang herself in her bedroom closet on Oct. 16, 2006. Weeks later, her parents learned that Josh was not a real person. He was just an online identity created by a parent of a former friend of Megan's and her mother who lived down the street in their St. Louis suburb.
