    But only because the names have been officially released to the public. There's no reason to treat this differently than reporting about any other crime where the accused have been named.

    Bullying is a huge problem in our society, and it's been around long enough that a substantial portion of the public don't take it seriously, and even encourage it in their children. There is a growing awareness now, but it is slow going due to many generations of inertia. Tragic events like this need to be publicised and discussed as much as possible, and that process includes factual and detailed accounts of what happened, and the consequences to the perpetrators and those who sheltered and enabled them.
