Cyberbullying Likely Factor in Suicide of Massachusetts Teenage Irish Immigrant - ABC News
Sad, She would not have made it as a liberal on here.
Apparently two of the alleged bullies have been "disiplined."
I wonder what that means?
Girl’s death prompts school to take action - BostonHerald.com
Any ideas about what a bullying-prevention measure would entail?
This is why parents should closely, CLOSELY monitor their kids' internet use. If my kids had facebook, I'd be on it every day and if it was problem shut it down. After calling the parents of the assholes giving my kid a hard time, of course.
As far as that goes, my grown kids have facebook accounts, and I check them pretty regularly as well! Not because I have any control over their computer access, but believe me, if I saw questionable content on there I'd be supporting the hell out of my kids, even if they are in their 20s.
Stories like this break my heart and make me fear for my daughter. It's a cruel world out there.
I thought assisted suicide was already against the law.
So you think browbeating the shit out of someone to the point where they no longer want to live qualifies as "assistance?"
That's one messed up noggin you've got there Ravi.
Assisted suicide should only be illegal for minors as it was in this case.
teens are marginally sane anyway. I am suprised there are not more suicides among teens.
Wow, parents really do need to monitor their kids online activity more. How the hell did it get to the point where she was willing to take her own life?
Teh internets...it's serious business.
