In case you aren't following, or haven't heard, the story of Phoebe Price, here it is:
Phoebe Price was the "new girl" at South Hadley High School in Massachusetts, and, for being the "new girl" she was mercilessly tormented by a group of her fellow classmates until she finally could no longer stand the abuse and killed herself.
These students who tortured this girl, who were later dubbed the "Mean Girls" by Massachusetts newspapers, would call Phoebe Price "Irish slut" or "whore" on Twitter, Craigslist, Facebook and other "networking" sites. At school, though, her books were routinely knocked out of her hands as she walked the halls; people threw things at her; her face was scribbled out of photographs on the school walls; threatening text messages were sent to her cell phone.
Apparently, all this hatred at Phoebe Price was because she made the mistake of briefly dating a popular senior football player in her first freshman weeks at the school.
And now, she's dead.
On January 14th, after another day of hell in school, where Phoebe Price was harassed and threatened in the school library and in a hallway, she walked home. One of the "Mean Girls" drove by and threw a can of Red Bull at her. And probably laughed as she sped off.
Phoebe hung herself in a stairwell of her home.
An awful end, perhaps, except it didn't end there. Those bitches who tortured this girl posted vicious comments on the Phoebe Pince's Facebook memorial page. Even in death, Phoebe Price was taunted and bullied.
Nine students--seven of them girls--have been indicted on charges ranging from criminal harassment to stalking to civil rights violations. One little bitch--and you might think me mean by calling her that...you might think it bullying,...but that's what they are--was charged with assault with a dangerous--the Red Bull can. Two lovely young boys were charged with statutory rape.
Terrible, how hateful kids can be. Right?
Where do they learn these things?
Well, my guess would be, at home.
See, the mother of one of those nine bitches and rapists is defending her daughter, saying she might have said mean thing to Phoebe Price, but Phoebe Price was no innocent girl. Well, maybe Phoebe Price wasn't a nice girl; who knows. But she can't speak for herself, now, can she?
Angeles Chanon says Phoebe Price called her daughter, Sharon Chanon Velazquez, names, as well. Sharon is charged with stalking and violation of civil rights resulting in bodily injury. Angeles Chanon goes on to say, in her infinite wisdom, "They're teenagers. They call names."
And a girl dies.
And a girl dies.
Angeles Chanon says her daughter cried the day she was indicted. really? How sad. But, and I'm guessing here, Sharon Chanon Velazquez didn't cry at all when Phoebe Price was pushed and shoved and called a whore; and Sharon Chanon Velazquez didn't cry when someone threw something at Phoebe Price, and I'm sure as hell positive Sharon Chanon Velazquez didn't cry when she heard the news that Phoebe Price hanged herself rather than face one more day at school.
So cry now, Sharon Chanon Velazquez. And let your mother defend you.
At least you're still alive so she can.
