Again...had the school stepped in, and brought the main offenders into the office and explained to them that the next call wouldn't be to mom & dad but to the police department to bring them up on cyber-bullying charges I'm willing to bet this would have stopped pretty quickly. The school was made aware of the situation and turned a blind eye. This was more than a case of garden variety bullying or teasing, which I think is what most of the people on here seem to not be understanding.

That's ok, I know from personal experience this works. The school has a responsibility to keep the children in their charge safe from harm, I hope that they are brought up on at least child negligence charges since they were aware of the situation and did nothing. Seems as if a simple solution was even too much for them to manage.

Acidicnads: I hope the other middle school girls who did this to her are tried as adults and put in prison for 20 to 30 years for homicide


Words have meanings.... In order for it to be homicide you have to kill somebody.  Suicide is not a homicide.

ahem?  You saying this girl wasn't somebody?  You're just as bad as the bullies!

Kind of like self-homicide. Their used to be shame associated with the act, now it's just transference of blame.

I find it funny how much people are saying don't let kids have internet access or whatever.  That is the way they communicate.  The same stuff can and was done over 3way calling and party lines before the internet came around.  Before that, parks and malt shops or whatever.

That said, parents should have no questions asked access to see what is being done on the devices.

The big issue I see here is that the girl continued to interact with the girls which kind of tells me that the moms solution of cut everything off stay home from school wasn't exactly the best way to go about it.  Maybe actually spending time with her daughter to understand exactly what was going on and how the girl was really feeling would have been a better route.  I come to this conclusion because the mom deleted facebook (which is very easy to moderate who can post/see what) but she still had an ask.fm account which was probably the source of the majority bullying in the first place.

My armchair guess is that there were longstanding mental/emotional issues that hadn't been dealt with.  The family seemed very .... off.

ZeroCorpse: haolegirl: What some ppl aren't factoring in is the OTHER kids at school with internet access are telling her. "You won't believe what Suzie said about you on Facebook last night!" Or even worse is those same kids in a mock whisper as this girl walks to her locker "I read on FB last night she'll let boys do anything with her for $5!!" or whatever their demented 12 year old minds come up with. As that gets spread around the school (and we all know how the game telephone works) it makes no difference if her mom unplugged the computer or not, she still got the brunt of all the hate those kids could send her way...

And we ALL faced gossip and insults at school. The difference is that we went home and didn't have to hear it anymore, while if you supply the Internet to the kid, they just go home and read MORE gossip and insults. It's never-ending now. It doesn't stop when they get home.

And if you raise a kid to understand that what people post about you online is meaningless, and give them a bit of a spine and some social graces instead of letting them do all their socializing via Facebook or ask.fm, you'll find that they can take it when they go to school and hear that crap.

Did you happen to go to school in 1990?

This isn't necessarily true. Most kids have extracurriculars and some sort of social life after school.

If you're not a blind follower, why did you capitalize His and Jackass?


"His" out of habit (it's 50/50, depending on my mood) and then went back and capitalized "Jackass" afterward 'cos I thought it would be funny.

Besides, how could I be a "blind follower" (of God's, since H/he would be the Capitalized Pronouns in my Boobies) if I am "preaching" Lucifer?

My school was complicit with my torture and humiliation. I really wanted to go back to my 20 year reunion but then I'd be a news story on Fark.

Misconduc: I went to crystal lake, its a ghetto area with teachers who don't give a damn. Few years ago a few hood rats bullied some kid so bad he committed suicide by jumping into a lake to escape his tormentors only to drown because he couldn't swim, but it was better then being bullied.


That's not suicide. I don't know what it is exactly, but it isn't suicide.

In retrospect, my bullying problem in high school was really minor.

I think that's the story from the Friday the 13th movies. Not sure, never saw any of them in their entirety.

No, Jason went swimming (or fell in) while the camp counselors were not paying attention (because they were off making out) and drowned.

Riiight, thereby setting up the classic horror shtick of killing off everybody that has sex, does drugs, or are general meanie-heads.

bdub77: tjsands1118: Okay odd idea, but what if we take a step back in techonolgy in kids and not allow them to have smart phones or use social media until they're eighteen? I mean most states a minor can't sign a binding contract without parental consent, and a end user agreement is sort of like a binding contract. Also I honestly believe phones are making people stupid.

OMG LOL STFU.


You sound fat.

You are making sense.
Why are you doing that? Didn't you get the memo?

I'm raising very good kids. I really fear when they get to this age. School sucked balls for me, and we didn't have cyber bullying 100 years ago.

These farking kids should all be tried as adults. Farking coonts.

Misconduc: Abacus9: ZeroCorpse: Many people called me "the warlock" (because hey, that's what a male witch was on Bewitched).

There's only one true Warlock, and he has tiger blood in his veins. He assassinates people for the Vatican.

Misconduc: I kind of wonder how bad this girl instigated the bullying, whether she ran her mouth to the wrong crowd because I really don't remember anyone being bullied just because of it, there was always something behind it.

You're saying she was bullied because she definitely started it? What would she do to start it? Logic isn't your strongsuit.

Did I say she definitely started it? No I asked what did she say to get bullied relentless - you only read half the story, while sad and tragic I've known people to bully then get bullied, clearly you missed that part probably due to a lack of reading comprehension.


Try reading your own words again, idiot. I bolded them for you.

I was kidding, in apparently to serious a thread. Was honestly wondering about the "His" though.
