There's been a growing effort to address bullying in recent years, in the wake of a number of school tragedies caused by kids who said they were the victims of bullies.

That includes Eric Hainstock, who shot Klang to death just more than three years ago at Weston High School in Cazenovia.

A few months later, three teens in Green Bay were planning to pull off a Columbine-style massacre, complete with guns and napalm, when another student heard about it and spoke up.

At least one of those teens claimed to be bullied for years.
