Outrageous PA Teen Punished After Using iPad to Record Bullies
Here's a story that had you talking this morning on the Fox and Friends First Facebook page. Heather Childers and Ainsley Earhardt asked for your thoughts on this bullying incident in their daily "Brew on This" segment.
A Pennsylvania teenager was convicted of disorderly conduct after using his iPad to film his alleged tormentors harassing him at school.
According to a transcript of a March 19 court hearing obtained by the The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, the teen said he made the seven-minute recording "because I always felt like it wasn't me being heard." He said classmates bullied him daily over a period of several months.
Shea Love, the bullied teen's mother, calls the situation a "horrible nightmare," questioning why officials at South Fayette High School went after her son for making the recording, but did not punish the bullies. Authorities reportedly even considered pursuing a felony wiretapping charge at one point.
The family's attorney says an appeal of the conviction will be pursued, along with a civil lawsuit against the school district.
