The Independent tells the story of Kerby Casey Guerra, a 13-year-old Colorado Springs girl who was incessantly tormented by her peers at Eagleview Middle School. According to her parents, she and her friends were pushed into lockers, cussed at and threatened. Guerra, her parents and her friends parents all spoke with school administrators about their treatment, but the abuse continued. In March of 1999, Guerra killed herself with a deer rifle, driven, presumably, by the constant harassment. Guerra's parents believe the school should have done more to help their daughter because peer abuse has become worse in the late 1990s.
