Parents: Bullying led to boy's death

Bailey O'Neill's parents just wanted him to see his 12th birthday.

The next day, they took him off life support.

The fatal injuries that led to Bailey's death Sunday were the tragic consequences of bullying at school, his parents say.

But Philadelphia-area detectives are still investigating whether the incident was, in fact, bullying or an altercation on the playground.

    My point is that while the MSM speaks of one tragic death of a child here at home, the many deaths our gov't is responsible for abroad is never mentioned. The MSM biased reporting on children's death and their reasons why is appalling. Thousands of children die each day and they choose one child's story about playground bullying?
