Description

You've heard about cyber bulling among our youth.  Unfortunately, age doesn't always equate to wisdom, and the old adage "turn the other cheek" doesn't always work.  (You run out of cheeks rather quickly.)  
This story is about the intersection of passion for the betterment and education of our youth at the corner of personal agenda and alliances.  This story highlights the lengths that we humans will go to in order to coerce, manipulate or bully those who speak truth in order to protect their alliances.  This time, at the expense of 7,000 students, and many of those closest to me.
I have always believed that justice prevails and that the truth always comes out.  I didn't realize that sometimes you have to fight like hell to get it out there.  And sometimes, it's OK to punch back.

    I knew the person who seemed to be behind all of this bullying. She was in my class at Whitmer 35 years ago. I am saddened to see where she allowed herself to go.. Hopefully she will take a step back and do some soul searching and realize life is too short to take things this far, especially when another’s reputation is being harmed and children are involved… I thought that it could have been refined as a narrative a bit better, but all in all it was a powerful read. Hopefully this account will help the community to see what needs to be done going forward in a more student-centric way.
  • It's 100 percent unclear how nuts she is!

    Two sisters, two nut jobs! Two board member, too crazy! Wow! These people brought a community and school district down to it's knees. Shameful and disgusting! Time to stand up to bullies and take control of our district and vote for a new board. "Felthersnatch" - these woman have no shame even for their dead father. Thanks for connecting the dots.

    Over the last two years we have had an ongoing conversation about fake news and how it effects society, politics, and lives. This is the story of how fake news, spread by a small group of people, ruined the lives of two men (including the career of one), and have thrown an entire metropolitan school district into disarray. Proof that somehow we never really leave high school. Must read and nonstop page turner, complete with screenshots showing the truth. A++

    I am half way through this book and cannot believe the level of harassment and bullying being committed by a person in this book and her helpers. I would liken it to how Scientology allegedly harasses and torments individuals who leave the church! The fake websites, being followed, smear campaigns, etc..
  • Epic Read!!

    Amazing book!! I thought I heard the whole story of the craziness of that lady and the two board members but this showed the whole story! I hope these three people realize the damage they have done to our school district and to our community. Congrats to the author for connecting the dots showing the craziness of that lady! She has issues. If she put 10 percent of the effort into helping the school system that she did into making fake accounts, our school district would be the best in the state. Or in her words, I am 100 percent sure of it.

    I enjoyed the read. Great book on how social media can allow people to hide behind fake accounts and keyboards in an effort to shame and destroy lives. The level of obsession that people have gone to in order to hurt others is scary and an example we should show our children. This is a new world we live in and we won't always know our attackers.
