that shit is sad man.

kids really can be cruel sometimes. i never made fun of someone unless i was buddies with them and i knew they could take it. theres no need to make someone feel bad like that for whatever reason. its pathetic really.

That's sad man. There's no need to act like that and say things like that to someone. And even the fact that the administration at the school were saying there wasn't much they could do to help the situation is messed up.

bullying is a totally normal part of growing up. if anyones fucking with you its learns you to stand up for yourself. i never got bullied myself, because i was a cocky little shit who enjoyed a slangin match, but i used to stand up for people who got bullied, even though i didnt like them for being weak.

its like the wolf pack males fighting for alpha male status. and it helps prepare you for tough times in your adult life ahead.

whats amazing to me is that a 11 yr old has the mental capabilites to go thru with killing himself, full stop. When i was 11 i dont think i would even know how to do it, let alone go thru with it.

^yea thats what first got me too. like when i was 11 i was thinking about mario brothers and ninja turtles and shit, the thought of killing myself never even creeped near my brain.


but idk, i guess if your getting it that hard, who knows.


bullying is a part of life sadly, although it shouldnt be. i get the wolf pack alpha male analogy, except for the fact that humans pride themselves on not being animals. but we do act like them; or worse; a lot of times.

tbh it is sad that this happened but kids are getting softer and more..drastic (cant think of another word). I got bullied when i was 11 untill i switched and beat some cunts up.
its a normal thing in childhood to have bullies and be bullied but i would never have thought of killing myself thats some fucked up shit.

yeah i had some suicidal thoughts in my teens but never even thought of going through with that shit.

some people arent strong enuff to take it im guessing, but ive seen one kid who stopped coming to school n shit wen me n my buddies bullied him, we stopped cuz the kid was the biggest fag ever, but thats besides the point, this is sad that dude shoulda seeked out help instead of killin his self.

if a kid is kinda gay or weak or whatever they got enough problems. if they start acting out of line or whatever i have no problem putting them in their place. but its when people go out of their way to make someones life miserable is shit that i cant stand. i never got bullied, i was pretty much friends with everybody, but i cant stand people who pick on the weak for their personal enjoyment.

i agree people should stand up for themselves but its just not how some people are i suppose.

it goes beyond that though. "stickin up for yourself" doesnt always work when you got half the school on your ass. some kids have it really bad

yeah same. thats crazy

Bullying is a serious problem in america and it shouldn't be like that. I got bullied a few times when i was in school and i hated it. Just because some kids are weak and quiet doesn't mean that it's ok to bully them. Some kids are just assholes and they get off on bullying because they think it makes them cool. That's sad that the kid that got bullied killed himself but he's in a better place because there's a lot of evil people in the world. Even if he had gone to a school principal or a guidance counselor about his problem, they wouldn't have done nothing. Then he would've had to listen to the bullies calling him a punk or sissy because he told on them. I hate ignorant people.
