This is just plain stupid. The SCHOOL is actually doing the bullying! They are punishing her for expressing her thoughts on school bullying. Claiming her words are threats.
I do not see anything in her words that could be remotely viewed as a threat. The school just freaked out because she openly said she was a witch and a bisexual. At least that's my opinion.
Your thoughts? What if this happened to your kid?

she made no threat...she said that bullying leads to suicide's & school shootings...WHICH IS THE TRUTH! She never friggen said "I'm going to shoot kids in school"....she said that bullying can lead to those extremes. She was making a VALID point!

my question is..if she's a threat, wouldn't she be a threat to the other school, too? - dullscissors
Yes, she will be (if you take her as a threat), but at least here that's what happens to all of the "threat" children - those who are in trouble, pregnant teens, kids who have so many absences they can't go to regular school, etc. They are sent to alternative school where they go for a couple of hours a day and then roam the streets while the other kids are in school or get jobs (which a lot of them do) and work most of the day. Honestly, I would think with her lifestyle & beliefs she would be at risk attending an alternative school, at least she would here.
