What can stop this girl from bullying?

Here is another bully that just won't stop. What I don't understand is why is her identity being protected and the victim's exposed. Here is the report from Education Tech News:

What’s even worse than bullying? THIS
February 26, 2011 by Claire Knight

A female student allegedly tormented a male classmate for months. In the most recent incident, she pelted him with raw eggs on the school bus. But it gets much, much worse:

Not satisfied with humiliating 12-year-old Tommy Benton on the bus, the unnamed female posted a video of the egging on YouTube.

Benton’s mother had already been in contact with officials at Howard Middle School about the ongoing bullying problem, so local media got involved and covered the story in a segment on bullying.

The girl was suspended for 10 days.

But that’s not all …

Apparently, the bully enjoyed her 15 minutes of fame.

After the media coverage, the girl posted a second video on YouTube, mocking her victim.

The videos were removed from YouTube the following morning, but the damage had already been done.

Now, school officials, law enforcement and parents have to deal with the aftermath.

Turns out, this isn’t the first time she’s been suspended for bullying this particular classmate, so local law enforcement recommended that the girl should be charged with battery.

The recommendation has been forwarded to the state attorney’s office, according to reports.

And the girl’s family? They’ve apologized and say she needs to be punished.

What can school officials do when bullying is this extreme and students aren’t remorseful for their actions? Read comments below the article.

On the subject of bullying, can anyone tell me if this has been sorted???? I don't mind if you delete this comment afterwards. This is just horrible. I don't particularly want to post this video on here, but I really hope that attention gets drawn to it so that this girl can find justice.

Yes, it has been sorted. I was part of the reason that it got on Youtube & I feel horrible about it. Definatly learned a lesson out of this! We both had to do a certain amount of hours to do etc.
