Wellington Menezes Oliveira, 23  
                              was responsible for the murder of
                              12 children in Rio de Janeiro.

He was clearly mentally disturbed, but one thing leaps out his notes and videos. He felt intensely bullied as a child, and was determined to strike back.
According to a former colleague of Wellington, he was an extremely shy person. Even at social events showed distance, poor relationships with friends,"
“I hope this serves as a lesson, especially to those school officers who stood by with their arms crossed as students were being attacked, humiliated, ridiculed and who were being disrespected.”
Wellington videotaped himself saying only days before last week’s massacre in Rio de Janeiro. But what do we know about bullying?
Bullying is a physical or psychological violence, intentional and repeated, with the aim of intimidating and assaulting a fellow incapable of defending himself.

"The fight that many brothers in the past have died for and that I will die for is not exclusively because of what is known as bullying. Our fight is against cruel, cowardly people who take advantage of kindness, innocence and weakness of people unable to defend themselves."
Wellington killed himself after being injured by a police officer's bullet. The mass shooting was a tragedy in Brazil, where school shootings are rare.
