    Bullying and Suicide - Bullying Statistics
    Thanks Pinky I just looked at it, the CDC figure is crap right now because the figure is from 10-24. That pumps the numbers (way 2/3 at least) up because most suicides are commited by males between 19-22. I got find the breakdowns by age so we can get an accurate assesment of what EXACTLY we are dealing with. I have a feeling these people commiting suicide have underlying mental problems that have not been diagnosed. I need the numbers to see if that bears out. Bullying simply exaserbates an EXISTING problem.

    That or we come up with an appropriate legal definition that's an in between. Because it isn't just harassment, and it isn't just stalking.

    Emotionally damaging someone to the point that they have zero self worth is sickening.

    You don't think the it's possible that the bullying could be so severe that it would cause another to think about suicide?

    I think it's just those, to be honest.

    Honestly? No. I take that back. Possible but very very unlikely. Its much more likely there is an underlying stability issue. We have all had ups and down and even contimplated it half heartedly. But when you start to take action, there is most likely a chemical imbalance, or a mental disorder at the heart of it I believe. Its one of the reasons I want better statistics so I can drill down and determine if that is in fact as I suspect it is.

    That's exactly why I'm not shedding tears for her.

    This is not some innocent little girl who was just bullied into submission. This is a deviant who ended her life for the expressed point and purpose of attention whoring. I have no doubt that this was a common behavior in her life and instigated much of the social disapproval some are trying to call 'bullying' now.

    It wasn't bullying then, it's not bullying now. She was an attention whoring little skank and normal kids didn't like it. This is all on her.

    It's sad and troubling.

    How about that?
