“Fbisd whoress” and “Fbisd hoes” are two FACEBOOK group pages under investigation by the Fort Bend Independent Police Department. The two pages, no longer active, had posted pictures with insults as captions. Most of the students whose names and photos were posted are reportedly from Travis High and Bush High Schools.
David Rider, FBISD Chief of Police said, “The district would still like to receive any information that leads us to the administrator of these pages.” He said the district’s police department will continue to monitor social media sites for criminal activity. “We also encourage parents to protect their children from these types of situations by educating them on appropriate social media interactions and then monitoring their internet usage.” The school board of trustees passed a resolution in January about heightened awareness of bullying and harassment type of behavior which affects a student’s well-being. Last year, a FACEBOOK incident involving students from FBISD made national news and also called attention to the gravity of an incident that resulted in a teen’s suicide in another part of the country.
“There is nothing new to report about the investigations at this time,” said Rider. The FBISD Police Department is asking anyone with information about the identity of the administrator of the FACEBOOK pages to call them at 281-634-5500.
