Michigan filmmaker's new film explores bullying from the point of view of the bully
As social media has embedded itself into our lives, so too has the national conversation about bullying.
Facebook, Twitter and other forms of social media have given bullies boundless opportunities to torture their victims. What used to be something that happened in school halls and classrooms now finds its way into every corner of the lives of our young people.
One of the voices that has joined this conversation about bullying is that of a Michigan filmmaker. Her newest film, shot in Oakland County, is called "The Bully Chronicles."
It brings us the story of teen bullying through the eyes of the bully, and she recently turned to the Huffington Post, where she wrote to the teens accused of bullying a 12-year-old Florida girl to the point where she committed suicide by jumping off a tower.
Her post was headlined "From One Bully To Another: An Open Letter to Rebecca Sedwick's Bullies."
Amy Weber joined us in the studio.
