Dubbing yourself a “terrorist” of any sort may not strike many as particularly wise in the current climate, but for the ‘two-stroke terrorists’ of the 80s scooterboy movement, recognition of any kind would be welcome. Former Scootering magazine editor Martin ‘Sticky’ Round has made a living for himself documenting the scooter scene globally since those days.

On the 20-year anniversary of the Columbine High School massacre, an Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research poll found that many parents remain skeptical of schools’ ability to prevent a lethal attack. And even though most Americans consider schools less secure than they were 20 years ago, the survey found a majority don’t blame the shootings on the education establishment. Instead respondents said bullying, the availability of guns, the Internet and video games share more of the blame. In fact, half of Americans put on the onus on bullied students for many school shootings. Far more common, we believe, are the tragedies that befall the bully’s victims. As the heartbreaking story of Lowell High School student Anna Aslanian taught us, bullying instigators routinely ignore the norms of acceptable behavior to isolate and degrade vulnerable individuals to the point of despair or worse. In Anna’s case, the serial hazing and abuse to which she was subjected pushed her to commit suicide. We understand that in the digital age, bullies can wage their vicious, sociopathic attacks 24/7, but often they begin during school hours. The commonwealth sought to address the problem in 2010 with an anti-bullying law, which, while well-intentioned, didn’t get to the core of the issue, since the reported incidences of students exhibiting that behavior constituted a small percentage of bullying episodes. The numbers substantiate this discouraging picture. A Centers for Disease Control and Prevention survey in 2017 found that of the state’s nearly 1 million K-12 students, 15 percent — roughly 150,000 — reported being bullied in school or online. However, in that 2017-18 school year, Massachusetts public schools logged only 2,031 cases of bullying — a minuscule 0.2 percent of the student population. If anything, rather than decreasing, teen suicides have increased in the past decade, along with instances of bullying and intimidation in our schools. From 2014 to 2015 in Massachusetts, youth suicides jumped from 69 to 76, according to the Samaritans of Merrimack Valley, and increased to 86 in 2016, the most recent year for which statistics are available. And even when alleged perpetrators were identified, student privacy laws prevented victims and their families from knowing what disciplinary steps, if any, were taken. The Baker administration filed a more stringent bill in February targeting cyberbullying, sexting and “revenge porn,” but that legislation doesn’t address victims’ rights and school accountability issues. In the wake of Anna’s suicide, the Lowell City Council requested that members of its State House delegation urge their colleagues to change the language in the current law that prevents bullying victims from learning whether or not school officials punished the abuser. The rights of bullying victims shouldn’t take a back seat to those who commit such heinous acts. Amending the governor’s bill to include this provision will remove the privacy veil those cowards who practice this repugnant behavior have enjoyed, and finally give bullying victims equal rights under the law.

Richard T. Griffiths, a media ethicist, joined Boston Herald Radio’s “Morning Meeting” program to talk about his sculpture, a hanging mobile called “No Obstruction to Free Speech.” You’ve got this great thing where basically you’re highlighting freedom of speech throughout every president, free speech in general and the importance that it has meant for our presidents historically, is that right? Yes. One of the things I did after I retired from CNN was seethe with frustration at what I saw as a particular attack by our current president on the media, and I thought, “Well, I‘ll go back and I’ll show ’em how he’s unique in this.” And I go back and I start doing a bunch of research and I find low and behold there are a bunch of presidents who despised the media, starting with Thomas Jefferson, who thought, “Nothing could be believed which is put in the polluted vessel of a newspaper” — so I took all of these quotes and I put them on wooden slats and created this big mobile, which is about 6 feet tall and about 4 feet across, where you have the tangle of all of our presidents and notable Supreme Court Justices and so forth, talking about the importance of free expression, free speech, free and independent media and freedom of religion. And it’s a homage really to the First Amendment, and it’s really instructive because in the context of our history there has long been tension between a free and independent press and the people who occupy the White House. Can you talk about the similarities or differences between President Trump’s relationship with the press and that of President Richard Nixon? Well both of them were pretty opposed to the press. Nixon — one of the lines I quote is, “Listen Here! Printing Top Secret information, I don’t care how they feel about the war, whether they’re for or against it, they can’t and they shouldn’t do this and attack the integrity of the government — this is talking about the Pentagon Papers — “By God, I’m going to fight that … they don’t know what’s going to hit them now” and “You don’t have Nixon to kick around anymore because gentlemen this is my last press conference. I hope that what I’ve said today will at least make television, radio and the press recognize that they have a right and a responsibility to be fair, that you can’t give them the shaft” You don’t have Nixon to kick around anymore because gentlemen this is my last press conference. those are the kinds of things that he was very strong about but the rules that were applied were generally being followed. And we were also in a time when there were only three broadcast networks and then the major newspapers and the major wire services covering President Nixon, now we all have the ability to have a platform and so Trump can go around the mainstream media and go directly to his supporters, through Twitter, through other social media. He doesn’t need the mainstream media anymore and then it shows the attempt to undermine the trust in the mainstream media, which is doing accountability journalism. Remember it is only the news organizations that are doing accountability journalism, whether it’s city council or for the Congress or for the presidency. Anybody can sit in their underwear and write opinion pieces at home and post them to Twitter and Facebook and often they’re thoughtful. Anybody can forward news releases of what I call layer one journalism, the breaking news, the announcement from the White House — the latest economic figures, the unemployment rate — anybody can forward those around, it takes serious journalism to do the level two stuff, in the middle there, between opinion and the breaking news simple stuff where you actually go out and do the enterprise reporting that requires someone on the ground to go look at those numbers, go through and analyze the data set, go find the people who were victimized by the pedophile priest and actually bring out the bigger story as a result, only serious journalists can do that. And when the government itself is attacking the portion of the Fourth Estate that actually does that deep dive journalism then it undermines the integrity of our democracy because then it undermines the accountability piece that journalism provides.
