Police are investigating what happened in a case of bullying that turned deadly.
Bailey O'Neill, a 12-year-old sixth grader, died on Sunday after he was removed from life support. He started having serious seizures that forced doctors to eventually put him into a medically induced coma after a Jan. 10th bullying incident. Police haven't said if they're going to file charges. His family, though, is completely heartbroken.
Senator Bob Casey (D-PA), also the chairman of the Joint Economic Committee, wrote an op-ed on CNN.com about bullying legislation that he has now proposed.
This morning on "Starting Point," Sen. Casey talks about his proposed legislation and explains why he thinks bullying today is much more damaging and insidious than in years past.
