The news that kids can go back to school has excited a lot of people; parents, teachers and especially one cyber-bully who has been itching to get back into the classroom to potentially ruin someone’s life in person, like the good old days.
Before she was forced to school-from-home, Roseanna McPherson (15) had perfected her bullying skills – so much so that some of her victims refused to come into school.
“I’ve had to resort to sending anonymous emails and setting up fake Instagram accounts” said Roseanna in regard to how she’s managed to continue her bullying.
“I just don’t know if it’s having the same effect”
When asked whether she knew just how detrimental her bullying could be to her victims, Roseanna didn’t really seem bothered.
“Mmm they’ll get over it”
While Roseanna is only a 15-year-old, it’s hard to excuse her horrible behaviour – or any other bully’s behaviour.
According to Kids Help Line, a staggering 1 in 4 students experience bullying and an increased risk of suffering from impacts on their mental health later in life.
For victims it might seem like there is no light at the end of the tunnel, but there is.
The majority of schoolyard bullies are pieces of shit who have no ambition in life, so while they might hold the upper hand right now – know that it will change, and they’ll likely be in a pyramid scheme within a few years.
