69gnarkill69: Yeah, turning off the phone and PC is hard. If everyone that gets bullied killed themselves we would cease to exist. Some people have issues that they can't get over and we are quick to blame outside influences for what is often poor parenting. Not sure if that is the case here, but I'm finding it harder and harder to find sympathy anymore, nobody accepts any responsibilities.
RenownedCurator: ut realistically, these other girls are also 12. They're vicious little beasts but they're kind of programmed to be that way. They're unlikely to really get the import of what happened to their victim for years. I also think that no matter how hounded someone has been, filing charges against someone because of someone else's suicide is a horrible precedent.
bdub77: RogermcAllen: How do kids get away with this stuff nowadays? If me or any of my fellow students even thought about calling someone a biatch we would be in for a world of shiat. Here there is physical evidence of someone calling someone else a biatch and nothing.Spare the lash, spoil the child./they didn't actually hit most of us in the 80's, but the threat of such actually meant somethingI really don't buy into the whole you have to beat your kid nonsense. You do however have to threaten and back up your threats with action. Like, 'oh hey i heard you were bullying a kid in school, your cell phone has been cut off and you're grounded for a month and no allowance.' And then follow that up with a real talk about what it means to bully someone.And you have to give your kid some independence to make the right decisions, but when they make the wrong ones you best back your sh*t up.
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.
EmmaLou: Girls that age are evil, evil spawns of satan. I'm sure they don't even know why they act the way they do. In my day, I could at least go home and get away from that crap. I can't imagine being that age today and having to deal with that on the phone and online.
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
AverageAmericanGuy: Without a strong, stabilizing force like a father in the home
ZeroCorpse: And we ALL faced gossip and insults at school. The difference is that we went home and didn't have to hear it anymore
ArcadianRefugee: Lucifer ("Satan") doesn't wish to be worshiped; what is the point in free will if you just turn yourselves over to someone/-thing else? The whole point of that episode in Eden was to get us to think for ourselves and not follow blindly some Jackass just on His say so.

Jim_Callahan: Everyone is going to be a dick occasionally. People have bad days, just rub each other wrong, occasionally lash out for unrelated reasons, or are just innately dicks.A very small percentage of people have occasional bouts of depression and lack the training to deal emotionally with other people being dicks to them.

Last Man on Earth: x23: it is 'ki ki ki ki ma ma ma ma' ... the composer himself thinks anyone thinking it is 'ch ch ch ch ah ah ah' are raging morons.Manfredini says, "Everybody thinks it's cha, cha, cha. I'm like, 'Cha, cha, cha? What are you talking about?'"I've always heard "kah kah kah kah, ch ch ch ch." Also, it doesn't matter what the composer intended, it doesn't magically change what the sound actually is. He may have WANTED it to sound like "ki ki ki ki ma ma ma ma," but that's not how it came out.
AverageAmericanGuy: This proliferation of single-parent homes in which the mother is the only one taking care of the children and fathers are only around 2 weekends a month is not only disastrous to boys, but it's also catastrophic to young girls. Without a strong, stabilizing force like a father in the home, these children are raised by mercurial women who are stretched to the limit between supporting the household by working and managing the household after work.Who was there to talk to this girl when the bullying got too bad? Who was there to tell her that girls are idiots (no offense intended) and that this kind of stuff will pass eventually? Who was there to consider moving to another district to get her out of that poisonous school?"I blame myself" says this girl's mother. But you can't blame the mother for everything that happened. She's at her wit's end as it is, juggling a career and motherhood.It's tragic and indicative of a much deeper problem in American society.
