    Who has ever heard of a Down’s Syndrome child being a bully? Something doesn’t make sense.

    • sycamore

      uh, anyone can be a bully..
      This is just a sad case, no matter what syndrome they had.

      • SJ’s Dad

        Your ignorance is STAGGERING!

        • sycamore

          Yeah because I think anyone can be a bully is ignorance. I FEEL BAD FOR YOU.

            As a sibling of a Down Syndrome (Now adult) child, having been involved in Dr. Rynder’s Edge program, Special Olympics, and having devoted a NOT insignificant portion of my adult life to the extensive study and care of individuals with Cognitive Reasoning challenges, I say professionally & unequivocally with absolute certitude CHILDREN WITH DOWN SYNDROME ARE INCAPABLE OF BULLYING BEHAVIOR!!!!!

          • sycamore

            Ok a child with down syndrome has communication issues, so it’s not classified as bullying, but do you realize that their behaviors can be very horrible and mean. They can do that since they do have communication issues

      They don’t think he was the intended victim. The kid had a gun with someone else in mind?

    • M.-J. Taylor

      That’s not what was said – the shooter’s father said his son had been bullied, but not that Daniel, the vicitm, did the bullying.

    Andrew Sullivan is breaking the story that his mother is actually Bristol Palin…

    • Madelyn Martine

      And no one needs breaking news to know that you’re an a-hole.

    • Jillane Kent

      That’s a jab at Sullivan and his Palin uterine obsession, Madelyn.

    If you live in Baltimore and you’re a goth kid with hair that covers your face. Chances are you’re going to be bullied by the “cool normal” kids. Which is effed up but that’s high school for you.

  • Deanna Pitt Tharpe

    Prayers for Daniel and for all those kids who think that this will make them feel better about their lives.

    My thoughts and Prayers go out to the borowy family and daniel. Daniel we are all pulling for you.
