Protesters in Phoebe Prince bullying suicide to meet at South Hadley school
Parents and those outraged by the bullying that led to the suicide of Phoebe Prince last month will meet at South Hadley High School’s auditorium Tuesday night to find ways to bring those responsible to justice.
The group wants strong measures to be taken to avoid similar cases like that of Irish teenager, and on Facebook said tonight’s meeting would be “asking for resignations, the passing of bullying laws and the bully’s [sic] to be properly punished.”
Among the items on the agenda Tuesday night will be the creation of teams to go and research and report back with ways to promote responsible behavior, online etiquette and discipline.
The meeting is set to take place between 6 p.m. and 10 p.m. Local Chief of Police David LaBrie will attend and approved the meeting, but officers will be on hand to ensure all passes peacefully.
“We’re preparing for it,” LaBrie is quoted in the Boston Herald. “Anyone can voice an opinion, hold signs, whatever, within reason, so long as they’re not obstructing pedestrian and vehicle traffic, and as long as they maintain a professional demeanor and aren’t interfering with anyone.
“Hopefully, they would want to participate in addressing the underlying issues, regardless of how they feel about what they’re protesting,” added the Chief.
The Hampshire District Attorney office’s investigation into the death of Phoebe Prince is ongoing.
