…There was a girl in my junior high school who, for no rational or explicable reason, was targeted as a ‘very evil person’ to be tormented and bullied. The stories about her were outrageous, silly, and unbelievable – none based in truth, but everyone repeated them anyway, and this was sufficient to put her on the bottom rung of the pecking order for 2-3 years and to encourage incessant bullying of her.
