Police are investigating a video that was posted to the Snapchat social network. Doctors say that the video reportedly depicts three students bullying a special needs student.
Students at Greece Athena high school alerted the principal that a video showing a group of students harassing another student in the restroom had been posted to Snapchat. The video shows the three students putting a fourth student into a “compromising position.”
It is not the first time that at least one of the students has been investigated by the school for their behavior. One of the students involved is reportedly the same student who was video taped harassing bus monitor Karen Klein back in 2012. The disturbing video of the prior incident showed the student taunting Klein about her weight and physical appearance.
“You’re so ugly that your kids should just kill themselves,” was one of the taunts toward Klein, whose son committed suicide a decade ago.
The school principal contacted Greece, NY police authorities who are working together to determine if a crime had been committed. Most of the students who knew of the incident learned about it on social media websites. The school district has asked for students to refrain from discussing the incident, particularly through social media networks.
Parents and other students have voiced their concern over the bullying incident.
