Teen suicide- Amanda Todd

Like Tree83Likes

It's disgusting what happened to her.

And it's disgusting when people blame the victim. I have to say it hit way too close to home for my liking.
Sorry to say that I just dont agree with the anti bulling movement. It will never end-thats just something people do. I dont know why all this money is being spent to "stop bullies" when it could be used to get these kids some real help. It is so costly for people to get the right kind of help, not to mention if you are a teen with no money and no direction. Maybe the government should be working on creating free programs that will actually help people deal with the problems life throws at them. THIS IS NOTHING NEW. I was bullied in grammer school. I had no friends and no family support. I am sure there are MANY who are in the same situation.

That being said- This is a sad story. I hope the man who black mailed her gets punished and never gets the chance to make a young woman feel like **** again.

Sorry about typos-on cell phone.

The better approach is to make this kind of behavior socially unacceptable, especially among children, and to impose harsh consequences for those who cross the line. Some of you may be familiar with the "Frown Power" campaign initiated in the 1940s by Stetson Kennedy (also famous for his role in exposing the Klan using the Superman radio show - great story!), which simply involved frowning at inappropriate ethnic jokes rather than politely laughing at them, thereby sending a signal that you do not share that person's sense of humor. So people may still hold those beliefs, but they can no longer assume that others will agree.

ITA with you that the stalker in this case should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. Young people also need to understand that what happens on Facebook, Skype etc does NOT stay there, and can have serious repercussions. (i.e., someone posting a picture of you smoking a bong, which is then viewed by a job recruiter or college admissions officer). Amazing that kids are so protective of their privacy with regard to their parents, yet so cavalier about sharing intimate secrets with total strangers.

I believe in manicures. I believe in overdressing. I believe in primping at leisure and wearing lipstick. I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles.

i hope they're tried as adults, but that's probably wishful thinking on my part...

I feel terrible for this girl, she can't even escape this in death.

It's hard to believe what monsters some kids can be.

On both sides of this - for the parents of the aggressors and the victims - why don't people know what their kids are up to?

Looks like the hacker group anonymous may have found the guy.

London worker fired over comment posted on memorial page to Amanda Todd | Your online newspaper for London, Ontario

Justin Hutchings did the unthinkable. He mocked a dead girl.

“Thank God this b—- is dead,” Hutchings wrote on a memorial page for Amanda Todd, a 15-year-old girl from Coquitlam, B.C., who killed herself last week after posting a haunting video on YouTube detailing the abuse she suffered physically and emotionally and online from cyberbullies.

In an exclusive interview with the Toronto Star, Hutchings said he was curious and wanted to “stir up the pot.”

“It was more or less a social experiment than anything. Just to see if I could put the most blasphemous thing on there,” he said Tuesday.

“I did this because if there was so much caring and so much emphasis on the fact that people actually care now that she’s dead, then how come society didn’t step in when she was alive?”


way to NOT get it, dork!

The online commentary for this makes me so angry and just sick. What is wrong with people? There's everything from kids who say how they're bullied and nobody gives a **** so what's the big deal to she was a slutty slut who flirted and had sex so she deserved to die. I just . . . I don't understand. I don't understand how people can be like this.

I know. But then again I'm always disgusted when women say they aren't feminist after *gasp* discovering, and subsequently, labeling me as one.

I'm just disgusted at the lack of self reflection and critical thinking from most people I meet.

Oh, and lack of empathy. Despite my intelligence most people are quick to write me off as nothing more than a bleeding heart since I possess it. apparently believing in anything other than fiscal conservatism means also lacking rationality and education.

I also saw this a few days ago.



Like people are actually comparing suicides now and using that as a determining factor for doling out sympathy. I can't.
