Family members of a Moscow man are accusing law enforcement of bullying after the man killed himself over the weekend. Andrew Cain, 19, committed suicide on Sunday. His death came one day after the Latah County Sheriff’s Office posted a Facebook comment about Cain. See the post below. The comment read: “We have decided that Andrew Cain is no longer the Wanted Person of the Week… he is the Wanted Person of the Month of June. Congratulations!” Loved ones told KREM 2 News in Spokane that Cain was bullied by law enforcement/KREM2 & KTVB. More here.

“You're gay.” Coeur d'Alene middle school principals told members of the school district's new Anti-Bullying Task Force on Tuesday that the phrase is the most common statement students in grades six to eight sling at one another as a form of derision. The 32-member task force is part of the school district's renewed effort to combat bullying. Tuesday's gathering in the school district's Midtown Center meeting room was the group's first official meeting since school members called for the formation of the task force on March 4. It was formed in response to an outcry from parents who told the board in February that school officials and teachers aren't doing enough to protect their children from bullies/Maureen Dolan, Coeur d'Alene Press.
