Teen makes video to honor friend and stop bullying

A new video about a 12-year-old girl who died is showing up on Facebook. The friend who made it says she wants to honor her friend while trying to stop bullying.

The Rusk County Sheriff’s Department says early Sunday morning Payton Ruth Ann Richardson died at her grandparent’s home south of Ladysmith from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Al Brown, the Chetek-Weyerhauser School District Superintendent, says there weren’t any signs she was bullied at school. However friends and family of Payton say that’s not the case.

Obviously we know the schools and churches are the first to push the blame elsewhere “claiming” they were oblivious to anything.  What are you doing working in education if you’re not even aware of something that has been sweeping the nation?
