Gay teen says she went to school resource officer after getting bullied — and he told her she’s going to hell

Published

on

A gay teenager who is graduating from the North Bend High School in Oregon has written an account of vicious bullying she received at school — along with the school administration’s total indifference to how she was being treated.

Writing over at the ACLU’s website, graduating senior Liv Funk chronicles being called homophobic slurs by her classmates, as well as one male student who physically abused her by hitting her with his skateboard.

The bullying got so bad that she finally went to her school’s resource officer — but she found to her horror that he wasn’t about to do anything to help her.

“He said that if I’m going to be an open member of the LGBT community that I should prepare for things like this,” she writes. “The officer said that being gay was a choice, and it was against his religion. He said that he had homosexual friends, but because I was an open homosexual, I was going to hell.”

Local news station KVAL reports that a recent inquiry by the Oregon Department of Education concluded that “discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation may have occurred at the school” based on multiple accounts from LGBT students who say the school’s administration did nothing to intervene during incidents of bullying.

Roger Stone was convicted Friday on multiple counts on charges brought by special counsel Robert Mueller.

The longtime associate of President Donald Trump was convicted on all seven counts.

He was charged with lying to Congress, obstruction of Congress, witness tampering and other crimes.

Stone was the nexus between the Trump campaign and WikiLeaks coordinating the release of emails stolen from the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton's campaign chairman by Russian hackers, according to investigators.

He potentially faces up to 50 years in prison under the statutes, but most likely will be sentenced to far less.

During a break in the testimony of former United States ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch before a House committee holding impeachment hearings on Donald Trump, Fox News host Chris Wallace praised her poise and devastating testimony, saying viewers should be "moved" by her story.

As the House hearing chamber emptied of lawmakers, Wallace was effusive in his praise.

"I think if you are not moved, and we will have to watch what happens in the cross-examination, but if you were not moved by the testimony of Marie Yovanovitch, you don't have a pulse," he said.

"This is a woman who had served in posts for presidents of both parties for more than 30 years," he added. "Hardship posts, places like Somalia, Tashkent, and she tells a story of being a leading fighter against corruption," before he provided more details about her stellar career and noting the president had her summarily fired by a new Trump hire.
