Council Signals Support for “David’s Law”

By Bill O’Neil

The San Antonio City Council lines up officially behind the push for “David’s Law” in the Texas Legislature.

Council passed a Resolution supporting the the anti-cyber bullying measure one day after it was approved by the Texas Senate. It currently waits for action on the House Floor.

“This does have our child’s name on it, and it’s there to honor him. We’re not just looking for something that’s just meaningless legislation” Matt Molak told City Council ahead of their vote.

The bill was inspired by the suicide of Alamo Heights High School student David Molak, who took his own life after being relentlessly cyber bullied.

Council gave unanimous approval to the Resolution pushed by Cris Medina–who said it’s the right thing to do.

“I want to also express my deep admiration and appreciation… and the courage that you’ve displayed throughout this entire process” Medina told the Molaks.

“I’m very grateful for your willingness to come forward, and not stay behind the scenes when you’re experiencing so much grief” Councilwoman Shirley Gonzales said.

“That’s what these bill are intended to do is to protect children, and hopefully keep families from going through what we experienced” Molak said.
