A hazing incident that “went too far” is at the center of the investigation into the Sayreville, NJ high school football team. The superintendent took a very proactive stance and canceled the rest of the football season. My thoughts are GOOD ON YA, Mr. Superintendent!!
Mr. Labbe said it all — it is time. Time for people to stand up for what is right rather than ignoring it or becoming part of the problem.
“We need all of our student-athletes, all of our students, heck, all students in the state, in this nation, to understand that the one true way to stop bullying is for those bystanders to do the right thing and become up-standers and report to an adult or someone at an authority level of what is going on. They have a moral and ethical responsibility to prevent harm. Emotional harm or physical harm from being performed on another one of their peers by being an up-stander. Standing up, doing the right thing, doing the courageous thing and going to an adult or going to a member of any authority.”
Hey Steubenville, are you paying attention to this? This school actually did the right thing. *drops mic*
