Tormented For Years, NYC Student To Sue Bullies And Their Parents

  You’ve seen the heartbreaking stories, bullies pushing kids to suicide.

Now there are calls for the parents of those bullies to pay.

CBS 2′s Jessica Schneider talked Tuesday with one teen who said the parents should be punished.

“I thought that I would never have friends. I thought that I would never live a happy, fulfilling life. And I sort of just lost the will to live because of that,” Caitlin Rocco said.

Bullies pushed 16-year-old Rocco to the verge of suicide — not once, but twice.

She said they tormented her every day for years.

Last year she was hospitalized after having suicidal thoughts.

“One girl pushed me into the bus lane and said ‘I wish there had been a bus coming because then you would’ve died and I would’ve been happy,’” Rocco said.

Rocco is a senior at Scholars Academy in Rockaway Beach. She said she’s counting the days until graduation — when she’ll finally escape her tormenters.
