CATOOSA COUNTY, GA — In seventh grade, they were friends. Now, Lakeview-Fort Oglethorpe Middle School eighth-grader Brooke Lepard says several girls bully her for refusing to bully others.
"I stand up for everybody, because I feel bad when nerds get made fun of. They're not nerds. they're just really smart people."
Her parents say the bullying began by blowing up her Facebook wall with nasty comments. Verbal turned physical two weeks into the new school year.
