(NEWSER) – A Pennsylvania high school student who recorded alleged bullying on an iPad was punished for his efforts—and now his parents are fighting back. The 15-year-old boy, who has learning disabilities, recorded his tormentors in class after enduring regular bullying, his mother tells the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. South Fayette High School reacted by slapping the teen with detention and dragging him before a judge for violating wiretap laws. "The whole thing has been a horrible nightmare," said the boy's mother, Shea Love. "This whole ordeal has made my son miserable."
