    Maybe it's the military in me, but people are going to be put under pressure and you can't shrink in the face of it.

    Or, conversely, I can say that your sarcasm is bullying and report you to the authorities. Wouldn't that be a nice little world?
    I could line up any ten kids you like under 10, and design a bullying campaign that would destabilize each and every one of them, and if no one intervened, most will die. I could probably kill any 8 out of 10 kids under the age of 18.



    I ask you: when the results of this despicable behavior are so foreseeable, what responsible adult looks the other way?

    Did you watch the video and see what those people did to her? They didn't just "say" things that she didn't like. Way to downplay it, though. Also, kudos for holding a 16 year old girl to the same standards as an adult. Teenagers aren't fully developed yet. That, and not everyone has the same level of mental stability. Some people are fragile. **** them, though, right? They need to ****ing grow a pair and man up. They need to be tough like you.

    Anyway, was this girl getting shot at in a strange place? I don't think anyone was asking her to deal with stressors like that, were they? Who?

    People are going to say **** you don't like. They are going to mock you and make fun of you sometimes, and it's that's the worse thing that happens to you in your life, you're a very, very lucky person.
    So, you're response to a 12 year old girl that's being bullied is "Rub some dirt in it"?

    Do you have kids of your own?

    Is she 12 or 16? I can't keep up with the strawmen.

    I do admonish you guys not to bully me as we discuss this, though. Don't all gang up on me with your detrimental opinions. That would crush me.

    I believe she was 12 when the bullying began. Not 100% sure, though.

    Also, it's cute that you decide to take a controversial position and then pull this jerk crap when you get criticism for it. Did you run out of arguments to back up your ridiculous position?

    Ummm...okay? I guess that's a good way to never hear dissenting opinions. Good job?

    There's nothing cute about it. I'm pointing out how your own argument is flawed by using it back at you. No one likes bullying. But the person who kills themselves is the one to blame for it. No one else.

    I refuse to believe you are really that daft. I'm sorry, but it's obvious you and others are saying this crap to piss people off and nothing more. Have fun with that.

    Weak, dude. That being said by a 23 year vet myself.

    She was 12 when this thing kicked off, and 16 when she killed herself. Regardless, I know you've seen a range of defense mechanisms in people you've served with. Some handle things better than others. I also know that we don't allow "bullyiing" in the military. If we don't allow it there, why is it ok that it happens in middle school?
