My goal is to make physical bullying and cyberbullying a prosecutable offense

Starting in 2011, my son Tristan starting coming home complaining of bullying. By 2014 he was afraid to go outside, preferring to stay inside to clean the school with the janitor. Tristan was harassed, picked on, followed and fought everyday. The teachers, the principal, the onsite police officer, the board of education...none did anything that provided relief. Tristan was told, "Quit being a drama queen." "Man up." "Kids are cruel, get over it." Kids are killing themselves at ages where they shouldn't even know what suicide is, all due to bullying and the lack of repercussions from it. It needs to stop, today. I'm deeply touched by this issue, and my goal is to not only make any form of bullying illegal but a prosecutable offense. Remove these children from school immediately and get help for the those being bullied. Notice the signs and act before it's too late. I'd like to call this Tristan's Law, in honor of a fearless little boy who loves to learn so much he still goes to school with his head held high, despite the fact that hardly anything has been done to protect him.
