    I seriously don't understand how one can hear about this story, presumably watch the video and yet reserve their harshest judgment for the girl.

    I can't either. This is totally foreign to me. I think it's just horrible. Not only do they blame her, but they laugh inappropriately and degrade her too! A child!

    She drank bleach.
    She cut herself.
    The likelihood is that these were not just sudden changes.

    Sorry dude. She was unstable to begin with.

    But lets say she wasn't. Nothing changes.
    She is still responsible for taking her own life. Nothing changes that.
    In your mind?

    Of that I have little doubt.


    Have a nice day.

    She is solely responsible.

    They, as has been repeatedly stated, are responsible for their actions.
    But not for her death.
    Your trying to blame others who are not responsible is sickening.

So okay, let's play the blame game!!!
    You seem confused.
    This has nothing to do with whether she is to blame or not for taking her life. Which as we all know, she is.

    I am not saying that I am glad that she is gone, or that she deserved to die, or is a piece of **** for what she did, etc...
    So stop trying to twist it.
    She is responsible. Saying so is not cold.

    And how about parents teaching their boys a little empathy and not to treat anyone like this girl was treated.

    This is a very tragic story of a girl that commited suicide because of bullying. Yes, she made some big mistakes, but these mistakes do not make it ok to bully.

    This is the video that she post prior to killing herself. very sad.

    This needs to stop!



    Amanda Todd: Bullied Canadian Teen Commits Suicide After Prolonged Battle Online And In School


    in 3...2...1.... here comes the pro-bully posts
    This was a contest between slick, adult predators and one little girl. The little girl lost and paid with her life.

    Hell yes, she was failed -- and it is a tragedy.

    The internet is a game-changer; this is not schoolyard bullying as in, getting shoved to the ground by a kid a year older than you. This is psychological warfare that bleeds into real life, is unrelenting and the kid cannot escape.

    We desperately need new criminal laws in this country that will provide penalties for adults who seek children and then deliberately harm them using the internet. Even if every parent in America was alert to the dangers of the 'net tomorrow, some would still neglect their kids. Some kids have no parents. And some kids will evade reasonable care by their loving, attentive parents to seek the attention of adults with bad intentions.

    The rat bastards who use the internet to deliberately lead a child to suicide for their own amusement need to be doing time for murder, IMO.

    You are obviously confused because they can be.
    Especially when the actions are criminal. The State does it all the time.

    I would like to take a moment to remind people that bad facts make bad laws. A sucky situation but there is nothing we can legislate that will undo what has been done. Try to be better people and try to teach your kids/grandkids to be better people and you will do more good than any piece of legislation could ever do.

    I guess we know on which side of this story their sympathies lie. Makes me wonder if they see themselves in her tormentors.
