    I'm sure they're suffering more than we can imagine, and they will for a long, long time, along with their families.

    Re: Student kills himself after gay sex footage put online

    I love how everyone assumes that the other two kids in this story are "bullies". Why are so many people so eager to paint these two kids as vicious, raving homophobes? Whatever happened to benefit of the doubt? Isn't it just as likley that this was simply a prank and the "victim" just happened to be a mentally unstable dude who decided to kill himself?

    This isn't a prank, its perverted and wrong. If they weren't bullies chances are they wouldn't have released the footage for the world to see.

    there was no "footage" the guy turned on a webcam and sent the feed to some people's twitter accounts. Not everyone who does something stupid is a ...GASP..."bully"

    It was a stupid prank. what is perverted and wrong is the fact that this kid was so ashamed of what he was doing that he killed himself when other people saw him doing it.

If it was not embarrassment it would have been something else that sent that kid over the edge.Like a lot of other people I do not have any sympathy for people who commit suicide, especially for the idiot school kids who have it better than most of the people on the planet. I kind of think we should drop these kids off in a war torn 3rd world country for a couple of years to change their perspective on the value of life and suicide.

    That said they should serve some time for violating that kids privacy. And this should only be treated as an invasion of privacy case not a some poor weak willed dumbass committed suicide because of this case.
    Look at the series jackass? I mean, that, or any other prankster type show, punked, college pranks etc..

    Look, it was a prank gone bad, that's it and that's all. Proving malice in this case is an uphill jorney, and so too is proving neglegence.

    If I were the prosecuter I would be praying this all went away.

    Shame the kid's dead. But I agree with Oscar. This isn't "bullying", this is a typical bull**** college prank that got way out of hand.

    That said, these two need to be made a bloody example of so that other "kids" get the message that this is not acceptable.

    I'm telling you this: If it wasn't this prank, it would have been something else that made him off himself. The kid was disturbed emotionally and/or mentally which is what, ultimately, led to his actions.

    Clearly his being seen kissing a guy on the internet wasn't that big of a deal because he had been streaming himself naked on that other website. He wasn't closeted or particularly discreet and there is no indication that he was actually being bullied. He was going to do this at some point anyway unless there was the intervention of some professional help. If it wasn't over being butthurt about this prank, it would have been over a bad grade, a poor performance at a recital, some dude breaking up with him...something.

    This boils down to mental issues in the kid, not the prank that supposedly set him off.

    exacta-mundo. and trying to demonize the other two kids won't help anything. college kids do stupid things, that's one of the main reason for going to college instead of straight into "real life" it gives you 4 more years to get all the "stupid" out of your system.

    I would tend to agree with this post. In the case of family members who are dealing with someone who is chronically depressed and commits suicide, there is a need to find a CAUSE besides their child's mental illness. Someone must have MADE THEM do it. In a lot of cases, the child has been dealing with mental health problems for years, and the parents did nothing to address it. I've always referred to this as "not my kid" syndrome. We saw the same with parents of gang members who denied their child's criminal/gang affiliation. "My kid wouldn't do that," the parents say. "Someone must have influenced them or made them do it."

    My daughter has a really good friend who has been involved in multiple acts of self-harming stupidity over the past 4 years. Most recently, she was dating a guy long-distance and cutting herself at his urging. When they broke up, he posted the pictures of her cutting and her naked body to 4-chan. A lot of the kids at her high school saw them, and they were circulated around the school. The parents and local law enforcement got involved...

    And yet, when she asked to see a therapist, they told her that she didn't need counseling, because she is fine. She just needs to toughen up and get some boundaries, according to her father.

    In my opinion, they just don't want to come to grips with the fact that their daughter has some serious mental health issues. I'm at the point where I don't even know what to do. I'm almost ready to take her to counseling and pay for it myself, but I think that violates some kind of law in Florida.
