This is a horrible story. It will only take a minute to sign this petition. This young girl was attacked by a 14 year old boy and the school is not responding in they way they NEED to. With all of the anti-bullying campaigns and increasing numbers of child suicides, they would take this seriously.

My 11 year old daughter Annisia, a 6th grader at Hogan Middle School in Vallejo,CA, was viciously beaten on April 24, 2012 by a 14 year old 8th grade bully at the school who was unknown to her. She was attacked from behind, slammed face first on the ground, then drug several yards, and viciously beaten for several minutes while another bully stood over her before campus security came to her aid. The Principal suspended my daughter for two days along with the bully, claiming “mutual combat” without them doing a thorough investigation. She later resended my daughters’ suspension after my outrage.
The bully and her mother left the school skipping and laughing.
Annisia sustained multiple injuries(concussion,contusion,continuing bloody noses,memory loss,bruising of the bone surrounding eye cavity,) causing her to miss a month of school, interfering with her education, and crushing her belief that school is a safe place.
Police response has been very slow.
More and more kids are being bullied, beaten, and harmed at Hogan Middle School, interfering with the victims’ receiving their education in what is supposed to be a safe environment. Although Hogan advertises a Zero Bullying Tolerance, they actually support bullying by their lack of actions and slap on the wrists of the bully but harsh punishment on the victim. The school says “we cannot be expected to know everything going on“. This MUST change to protect our children at school. Please help us STOP BULLYING NOW and get justice for Annisia and all the other victims of bullying.
