@happilyeveraftergirl:  Is there some sort of security on campus? She could speak to them.

For facebook, a choice reply might work. I’m pretty sure she can report them to facebook too.

ETA: Re lack of evidence, I read a newspaper article the other day where an abuser was caught out because he was (audio) recorded talking to a girl. So if it happens again she could hide in the cubicle and set her phone to record what’s said. I know that sounds a bit over the top but it’s a thought.

Even without evidence, she should still talk to someone on her campus (maybe someone in the dean of students office?).  Most colleges require students to adhere to a certain code of conduct, and clearly these bullies have not.  OP – your sister and the girl who was bullied first should go and report the bullies.  There may not be any “official” action, but I suspect that the university will talk to the bullies and put them on their radar.

If your sister is so kind then no one on Facebook is going to pay any mind to that post at all. I’d take a screenshot of it but then leave it alone.

I would get her one of those personal alarm things that lets off a loud noise when she presses the button (possibly that are apps that do this?) – just in case they corner her again so that she has an out. I would also encourage her to walk around with at least one other friend at least for a while, that way there is another witness. 

Apart from that, I don’t think there is much more to be done. She did a very brave thing and now just has to ride out this awfulness.

@happilyeveraftergirl:  I don’t think she really needs proof, if she feels threatened she can file for a temporary restraining order. I’ve done it before and it literally only required me to ill out some papers and have someone serve him with papers. A court date would be set for later and we could gather evidence in that time, like bringin a witness such as the other girl they pick on

If she feels that her safety is in danger, she can request that campus police escort her to her car and whatnot. Reporting safety concerns does not require any evidence at all, and it would make the campus police (possibly) be more aware of those girls.

Her college must have an anti-bullying policy. She needs to follow it and report these bullies.

@happilyeveraftergirl:  she should contact the counselling office at the university. they can face penalties up to suspension etc from college, if it’s anything like the one i go to.

Yeah I would be pressing charges if possible or filing a police report and involving the college.

Get a restraining order and call the police. Those girls are in COLLEGE, for crying out loud! They’re adults and should know that threatening another person and insulting them in a public place has consequences. No mercy.
