The suicide of 14-year-old Jamey Rodemeyer -- a student at Williamsville North High School -- attracted national attention in recent months.  Jamey was the victim of bullying over his sexual identity.  No criminal charges were filed in the case.  But last week, a number of students were suspended for their involvement in the bullying. 

On today's Press Pass, Buffalo News Suburban Editor Bruce Andriatch said it would have been difficult to prosecute this case as a crime.
