Be it known that we the undersigned hereby petition the Obama Administration to draft legislation for the criminalization of Bullying.

A Bill that:

Will criminalize the act of bullying in our schools,in our work places and in all public access areas Nation Wide,a Federal Bill.

We further request that in the event bullying makes/drives/forces an individual to take their own life/commit suicide/end their life prematurely that the responsible party be charged in the same manner as a murder would be charged and convicted.

We seek in this Bill also,that School Administrators/Teachers/School Board Members/Professors/Deans also be held accountable if He/She/They fail to rectify the bullying situation(s)

We seek in this Bill also,that Supervisors, Shift Leads, Owners, Corporations, also be held accountable if He/She/They
fail to rectify the bullying situation(s)

 Make Anti-Bullying Education a Priority in Nationwide Curricula.

We request that this law be modeled after the New Jersey Anti Bullying Law or Anti-Bullying Bill of Rights and that the frame work of implementation that New Jersey has used be followed with this Bill.

No new government bureaucracy should created with this Bill.

We believe this Bill will come under the covering of the 14th Amendment section 2.

We also request that any petition having signatures, waving duplicates, that includes the name(s) Jamey's Law, Make a Law for Jamey, Jamey Rodemeyer, Or any other Anti Bullying petition formed for Jamey Rodemeyer be included and counted in this petition.

      It is way overdue...bullies cost thousands to the taxpayers and the public and cause severe emotional damage to their victims. The Government needs to protect its people.

      I was bullied alot as a pre-teen and as a teen. Now I'm worried that my son, who is 12 is going through the same hurtful thing. Thoughs of suicide ran wild through my head and i would give my life if it would stop the senseless cruelty that so many kids go through in a time when they should just be

      enjoying their youth. It's not just a part of growing up, allowing it is an act of teaching hatred and telling our youth that it is ok to make someone feel like thay don't even belong as a member of society. Everyone belongs, everyone struggles and everyone deserves to be treated as an equal.
