14-year-old Jamey Rodemeyer deserves better.

Just days after word spread that the bullies who had harassed and threatened Jamey Rodemeyer to death chanted “We’re glad you’re dead” during a dedication to him at the Williamsville High School’s homecoming dance, Amherst police have announced that they plan to charge at least three teens with hate crimes.
Thank. God.

Police said Thursday crimes may have been committed against Jamey while he was a student in the Williamsville school district.
The Amherst Police Department’s Special Victims Unit said it will determine whether to charge some students with harassment, cyber-harassment or hate crimes, ABC News reported.

District officials said they’re cooperating with the investigation.

Three students in particular appear to have been involved.

Meanwhile, President Obama is rumored to be crafting a Teflon-strength anti-bullying law that will make it absolutely clear that this sort of behavior is not only unacceptable, but illegal. Bullies, online of off, will face criminal charges for their culpability in the anguish and deaths of their victims.

At least four lives will be absolutely destroyed by this ugly incident. Jamey’s tormentors will have plenty of time behind bars to contemplate whether or not bullying their classmate to death, and throwing their own lives away, was worth it.
