Plattsburgh City Police say two students wrote a hit list that included nearly 90 students. Now, the school is trying to figure out what to do. Plattsburgh and Peru school districts say the two girls responsible for the list say bullying made them do it.
Conner Agony knows what its like to be bullied.
"I get bullied sometimes too, last Tuesday I just got shoved into a locker," Conner said.
But bullying goes too far. Plattsburgh School Superintendent James Short says it's this kind of cruelty that led two Plattsburgh students to make a hit list. The list included 86 students, 20 from Peru School district, the rest from Plattsburgh.
Fortunately police say the girls involved didn't have a plan and didn't have access to any weapons.
"She feels like she has been picked on, and marginalized by other kids and while she's feeling this she has this fascination with that's what occurred in Columbine" Plattsburgh School District Superintendent James Short said.
Schools notified parents if their child was on the list.
"People are scared, freaking out about it," Peru High School Student Kyler Agoney said.
And while students admit bullying goes on they still have trouble understanding how it got to the point of a hit list.
"What they need is the right help, they need to talk to someone," Peru High School Student Andrew Downs said.
And to make things even more complicated you now have the Internet, and of course cell phones.
"Sadly some of the forms of bullying some youngsters are engaged in involving electronic devices are just as if not more cruel," Peru School Superintendent Paul Scott said.
Students say hopefully this incident will bring attention to just how traumatizing teen bullying really is.
"It makes me feel like no one is safe if you're at a school where people are bullied," Conner Agoney said.
Plattsburgh City Police are still investigating the incident, but no charges have been filed. The Plattsburgh School Superintendent says he doesn't know when the two girls will be allowed to return to school.
